Summary: This is one of the more exciting games I have played. The chase scenes are pretty good and I would rate the graphics excellent. With the price they're getting for the game now, I would recommend this game highly, if you want a fun shooter without a long story or lengthy cut scenes.
Could be better, you'll still have mindless fun with it.

Summary: It's not a good game. The physics are fun to play around, in the destroyable environment. This franchise could grow to be something special if SEGA would decide to give it another try. Just think of this as a fun, popcorn chomping, second rate Gears of War for an afternoon. It's not as great, but you'll have fun either-way.
Great game! Great story! Best I've played in a while ...

Summary: This is a surprisingly good game. I had not heard of it and purchased it as one of Amazon's weekly deals. I've read the other reviews and some folks sited problems with the voice commands and quirky controls. These can be fixed pretty easily ... don't use a microphone and use the TAB key to communicate with your team ... and adjust the keyboard controls through STEAM before launching the game. Simple stuff. (Oh, and remember, SPACE BAR equals ENTER for this game.
Summary: Been wanting to get this game on the cheap for a while, what a wonderful surprise it was to find out there was so much story here told in an adult, no-pulled-punches manner. The premise of the game is very fertile sci-fi ground and I am happy to say that the writers used every inch of it to tell a complex, realistic story without any campiness or BS that typically makes you roll your eyes and wish a cutscene would wrap up.
Summary: While it may appear to be another of those generic shooters, you will be surprised how good this game really is. The game is action packed! there is never a dull moment in Binary Domain, awesome boss fights, plenty of weapons too chose from and upgrades. You control your squad with certain commands even by communicating with them with your mic, even though the AI can be clumsy (like getting in your way)the cast of characters are cool just not lovable like in RPG's.
Summary: I wanted to play this game in Stereo 3D, but that will be a no-go for this title. Too bad. I can't get the game into 3D mode at all. I won't finish it. If you just play in 2D it may be cool for you.
Summary: This is the first Japanese shooter I've ever played and it shows. Compared to American shooters, it - is not as stupidly serious - is not as stupidly 'roided - is not as tight The main enemies are robots. This in many ways is better than killing humans, or killing monsters. There isn't really much blood, but instead sparks. The Japanese don't seem to have the bloodlust that Americans do. The weapons aren't realistic.
Summary: Easily one of the more memorable 3rd person cover shooters around and a steal at $9.99 Pros: Engaging story and good gameplay mechanics Interesting set pieces Good boss fights Handles well with the 360 controller Decent/Good graphic quality (esp after the FOV patch) Decent/Medium length game time (took me 11 hours) Cons: Voice "novelty" feature is a big turn off, fortunately the command controls via gamepad works well enough Big Bo bromance dialogue during the early...
