Excerpt: "Area 51 The game is one I bought to play on the PC and despite it being a FPS made back in 2007, I have to say that this game is actually half decent. For me the negative reviews on Amazon.co.uk seem to be related to freezes due to the Graphics cards, but this is a fairly good game. I regularly play First Person shooter games because a lot of these types of games tend to be fast paced, action packed provide me with some excitement. The downsides ...
At Â£7.99 Its Worth A POP! (Hence The 4 Stars and Not 3)

Conclusion: Blacksite isnt fantastic by any means. Its a run of the mill shooter that is clearly unfinished. However, it has some great stand out moments! It ran in full on my PC which is just above medium spec. It had quite a few judders in game but that was down to bugs and not my system. The end levels are by far the best and it is worth playing through the entire game just to see the outcome.
Conclusion: Seems most reviews are pretty poor for this game - personally I've not had any issues with the game apart from it stutters now and again. I tried installing the updates but they don't seem to work on the UK version. It does take a while to install as it's 2 DVD's but it runs fine on my AGP rig. I have it maxed out too . I was going to upgrade my pc to the newer pci-express motherboards and intel core 2 duo etc but decided to just buy a dogs dangly bits AGP graphics card.
Conclusion: Worked fine, decent framerate, but my PC is quite powerful. No patches required. All in all an average first person shooter, with good voice acting, I thought. Worth buying on the cheap if you like these kind of games.
Conclusion: Game takes forever to install, when it had I couldn't even get it started as no start up menu appears, just a short video clip thats repeated over and over (I presume thats where the main menu is SUPPOSED to be) Patches don't work, nothing works...rip off.
Conclusion: Don;t know why some people have trouble with this game, I have run it on XP, Vista, And Windows 7 without any probs. I've bought a LOT worse games than this, and at this price................just buy it.
Conclusion: Great..... what else to say. graphics...... 5 star storyline...... 5 star physics engine..... 5 star I bought my pc specifically for top end gaming and it still couldnt handle the highest settings. only draw back.
Conclusion: Not sure why the bad reviews. i had no bugs or problems apart from it crashed once! apart from that i really enjoyed the game. great graphics and lots of running about killing enermies all shapes and sizes. What else do you need from a fps game. My Pc spec is..
