Dark Void finally arrived. I have been looking forward to this game for some time now. Flying around in a jetpack, taking cover vertically, hijacking UFO’s. What’s not to love? This game. Thats what.
I am SO disappointed in this game. The story line is shallow, the graphics are not up to par with what this generation of consoles can do, and the game play is seriously lacking.
My daughter and I sat down to try this game out. She loves watching me play games and she loves aliens. So this should have been a good experience for us both. You start the game flying around with your jet pack and you have NO idea how to control this thing. So its just you, zooming around trying in vein to shoot UFO’s. And then BAM! It’s a cut scene and you are starting all over. And by all over I mean the game is finally starting. You are no just a normal joe flying over the bermuda triangle. The of course you crash after seeing a UFO. Now you are exploring the jungle for some reason. And then you see an alien robot kill a guy. The alien leaves and you go grab the guys weapon. A huge gun. Ohh and he has another on him for your partner. That’s right, he was carrying two huge guns…..anyway! I am not going to tell you everything, for those of you who want to play this game there is no reason for me to spoil it. But lets just say don’t expect much of a story and don’t expect the game play to live up to the hype. I do understand maybe this hype was all my own. But regardless I am disappointed. What could have been a good change of pace for shooters is just another disappointment and now I am going to go back to Darksiders where I actually enjoy myself and possibly where it ends and my daughter isn’t crying and begging me to stop playing.
