Released: 2000, Nintendo 64
Perfect Dark was a bit of a sleeper hit on the N64. Critically acclaimed, yet the game suffered from poor performance due to being more resource-intensive than what the N64 could provide at the time. Was this the fault of the N64 being less-than-capable, or of the developers not taking into account the limitations of the console they were developing for? Either way, the 2010 re-release on the Xbox 360 solved the resource problems, allowing people to enjoy the game how it was meant to be played.
There's a wealth of unused content though, including models, leftovers from Goldeneye 007, unused music, and unused text.
