  • Summary: Beneath the neon-bathed futuristic sheen and jagged dubstep warble of Blacklight: Retribution's cyberpunk vibe lies a shooter that plays it too safe for its own good. Minor excitements such as a mech-like robo suit, a flamethrower, and hacking minigames don't tip the scale far enough into innovative...
  • Pros: Core shooter gameplay is simple but satisfying, Doesn't require PlayStation Plus to play online
  • Cons: Texture pop-in and visual glitches hurt presentation, Meager player base means long matchmaking searches, Expensive upgrade/unlock model is unforgiving to your wallet

Blacklight: Retribution Review

Hardcore Shooter
18 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Blacklight: Retribution is the best free-to-play first-person shooter out there on the market. That’s not saying much, but it’s still a decent game and well worth your time.
  • Pros: Gameplay mechanics work together beautifully (somehow), Great graphical fidelity and style, Freemium model implemented in such a way that it’s not pay-to-win (mostly)
  • Cons: The pricing model still isn’t perfect, Various technical issues, including the usual online multiplayer suspects, Game balance needs a little tweaking

  • Summary: When I first heard that Blacklight: Tango Down was getting a sequel, I was stunned. While the original game looked pretty, this particular reviewer found it incredibly tiresome and miserable to play. I was reluctant to tackle its free-to-play successor, but decided to give it a try anyway.

Blacklight: Retribution doesn't stand out from the crowd, but this free-to-play shooter offers a decent amount of bang for your non-buck.

  • Summary: It's the future, that grim era some years ahead of us in which skies are almost always overcast, giant holograms of corporate mascots compete with each other for our attention, and opposing teams of agents shoot at each other in urban and industrial zones for reasons that no longer matter.
  • Pros: Solid shooting mechanics, Item balance keeps non-paying players competitive
  • Cons: Hardsuits are clunky and awkward, New weapons and gear are costly

  • Conclusion: This game is good. It is easily the best free-to-play experience I've found outside of the RPG genre and it is to be commended for raising the bar for other games in this rapidly growing sector of the industry.

Blacklight: Retribution

  • Excerpt: Война, она никогда не меняется. На протяжении всей истории человечества она шла по пятам, отнимая жизни у всех, невзирая на ранг, статус и вероисповедание. В ней никогда нет победителя, как нет ни героев, ни злодеев, они всего лишь жертвы величайшего проклятья, что было названо «войною».

Blacklight: Retribution

PC GURU
6 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Ingyen és bérmentve -- szép szavak ezek, ha játékosként halljuk őket, de úgy tűnik még szebbek, ha látjuk, micsoda biznisz van az ilyen ingyenesség mögött. Nem csoda, ha kevés az olyan fejlesztő, aki ráértében hagyna elúszni egy ilyen lehetőséget.
  • Pros: Élvezetes lövöldözés, sajátos, jól működő ötletekkel, fantasztikus pályatervezéssel, sokrétű testre szabási lehetőségekkel, nagyszerű grafikával.
  • Cons: Hajlamos laggolni, a mikrotranzakciós felépítés durván belekavar a fejlődés és a kioldható cuccok egyensúlyába.
