North America Retail Box ArtDark Angel is a 3-D scrolling fighting game based on the TV series of the same name. You play a DNA-enhanced super soldier, fighting through various levels using your bionic abilities. The game basically consists of fighting and more fighting, using basic repeated button taps for kicks and punches that all lead up to a rather dull rage-attack. The inclusion of a stealth element in the gameplay does nothing to lift the tedium; it has all the hallmarks of Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell but none of the sophistication (though you do have an added first-person sniper-attack feature that enables you to zoom in and take out baddies with a limited amount of fuss). Unfortunately, Dark Angel is a game that has no real "wow" factor; it has nothing new to offer and leaves you feeling unimpressed and disappointed. It may well appeal to fans of the series or of Jessica Alba, but even that's unlikely. Overall, this game is better off left in the dark. --Rob Holliday
