    For a game that came out of nowhere Dark Angel delivers the prime time goods and then some. [Jan 2003, p.60]
  2. The game can actually be quite fun for a few minutes, and then the pacing screws everything up with stealthy missions that require a gamer with an iron will to wrestle with the problematic camera.
  3. 60
    Unfortunately, the stealth elements fall tragically short of well conceived—it’s more along the lines of comically maddening.
  4. PSM Magazine
    60
    It's a middle-of-the-road action title with "Matrix"-like effects and bullet time of sorts, which results in an average experience with lots of flash. [Jan 2003, p.40]
  5. Just as Dark Angel is guilty of repetitive character models and backgrounds, the game design is guilty of repetitive action, which is unbelievably stagnant.
  6. The A.I. featured in the game is pretty much an utter embarrassment.
  7. Game Informer

    This is a brawler. It allegedly has stealth, too, but it's the most pathetic, poorly done sneaking around I've seen. [Jan 2003, p.96]
  8. Stay away from this game at all costs, if you see it in the store, turn and run away now!
  9. I probably got very close to the end, but I just couldn't endure it any longer. The wretched camera angles, the lackluster level design and the repetitious gameplay were more than I could take for a full 25 missions.
