  1. For a game that came out of nowhere Dark Angel delivers the prime time goods and then some. [Jan 2003, p.60]
  2. While the fighting engine isn't deep and the action can become repetitive - it's still a solid little action title and quite challenging on the harder difficulty.
  3. Just as Dark Angel is guilty of repetitive character models and backgrounds, the game design is guilty of repetitive action, which is unbelievably stagnant.
  4. The lack of two-player support, varied objectives, and its relatively short length keep it from being a must-have title, but the combat is fun and the environments are different enough to keep you interested until the final scene.
  5. The A.I. featured in the game is pretty much an utter embarrassment.
  6. 39
    Dynamic action elements careened downhill into a muddy bog of repetition, lack of vision and general malaise, leaving gamers with a dummed-down, half-baked game.
  7. [Cameron's] going to want to dump every copy of this interactive embarrassment bearing his name into a cold, harsh place that never sees the light of day. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.89]
