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.
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: 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: You never hear people talk about this game, but this is a must play if you enjoy 3rd person shooters with good cover mechanics. The story is great, game play is great, graphics are excellent on the PC. Don't listen to people who say, this has been done a million times before and its a ripp off from other games. That is simply not true, if so then every first person shooter i a ripp off from duke nukem and COD.
Summary: I bought it during the summer sale and it was definitely worth the bargain price. I actually enjoyed this game very much even though it was a console port. The premise is interesting, similar to Blade Runner (androids as humans) which was what got me hooked, the story. The game was stable on my PC with few crashes. Other than that, it is a generic shooter, a poor man's Mass Effect game. The shooting is pretty good, played with a 360 controller and had no issues.
Summary: I was surprised to see no one really found this to be an issue as much as I did, but the in-game voice commands did not work very often at all for me. Going through the beginning tutorial, commands like Charge did not work ever, not even once. After playing through the first couple of missions, I eventually disabled the voice command system, and resorted to Tab+(button) to respond to allies. I never used "Blitz", "Charge", etc.
A great third person shooter with likeable characters

Summary: After having played hundreds of hours of games such as the Mass Effect trilogy, Dragon Age Origins, Knights of the Old Republic, and Fallout New Vegas, I find it difficult to play through most third person (or first person) shooters. This is not necessarily because of the RPG aspect, but more due to the depth of the characters.
Summary: Developed by Devil's Details/Yakuza Studios and published in April of 2012 by Sega, "Binary Domain" is a third-person team based shooter set in Tokyo, Japan circa 2080. Global Warming has caused worldwide flooding leaving millions dead and three fourths of the planet underwater and uninhabitable. In order to combat the loss of humanity and aid in the rebuilding of societies robots are created.
A decent game, cool ideas, good vision, but with troubling controls

Summary: I played once through Binary Domain for the PC, beginning to end. The game was stable, never crashed, and the graphics and artwork, as well as the imagery is pretty nice in general. The story is interesting, not totally original, and we've seen it before in various different incarnations, but the blend of Japanese style makes it subtly more interesting in many ways.
