Summary: I waited a long time to buy and play this game and even at $11 I was kind of worried that it was going to be a waste of money. I'm glad I finally gave it a chance. It definitely looks dated a bit but the graphics and game play were far better than I expected. The flying can be a bit annoying until you get the hang of it but I managed and I generally hate flying, driving, etc.
Summary: The story can be confusing; it will not show you a history on other characters besides Will and Eva. The ending will not answer any questions you will mostly likely have about the other characters or the setting. What keeps this game interesting is the combat on the ground and in the air using the jetpacks. The controls work great, the gameplay is smooth: the framerate stays solid even during intense action. The graphics look great.
Summary: Dark Void is one of those games you avoid because its not that popular nor does it have great reviews from gaming sites. After playing almost all the major games for the ps3, I was looking for some sleeper hits to give a try without spending loads of money. These bargain bin games can be found at a reasonable price so even if they are bad you won't regret it that much. With that idea I picked up Dark Void and was quite surprised.
Summary: I got this for me and my little brother and though I lost patience with it early on, the later levels are awesome. If you love games that let you fly around, look no further, this game has some awesome flight levels, but the ones on foot are a tedious chore.
Summary: I purchased this game on Amazon for a much reduced price and I'm glad I did. The flying mechanics take some getting used to, but the overall game is polished and fun to play. This flying/shooting game is a recommended title for the PS3!
It's like Gears of War with a jet-pack!...and a weird story...

Summary: So, I recently beat Dark Void, having wanted to try it for a while after seeing trailers of the guy in the game hijacking a UFO and getting in vertical fire-fights. Overall, this game didn't dissapoint...except for where story is concerned. To start, the shooting segments are Gears of War style. Behind the back camra, hiding, shooting from cover, the occasional melee attacks, you know the drill. What sets this apart are the transitions to flying.
Summary: I think critics have been very harsh with this game, more than they should. I don't understand why most people seem to hate it. In my opinion this is not a bad game at all and has some great features that bring something fresh to 3rd person shooters. Graphics are not the best, and at some point it looks dated for the design of today's games but certainly they're not bad and there are some things, like the robots, that look pretty neat.
Summary: This game isn't bad. The review scores are bit lower. The game has some issues with lagging and some other minor problems. However, it gives you a lot of room for jet pack flying which pretty much makes the game. It has 6 weapons, which you can upgrade throughout the game. Graphics are moderate. Storyline is OK. Runs on Unreal Engine, so it's smooth for the most part. I would say it's worth buying if you like 3'rd person shooter.
Summary: Browsing the plethora of reviews and finding that they handed out mediocre (or worse) scores for this game only served to reaffirm my belief that the majority of so-called "professional" critics and awards (though the latter is another subject entirely that I'll not get into here) are completely worthless. Simply put, the critics got it almost dead wrong when they reviewed Dark Void. At the risk of utilizing too much formality, I will break this review into two parts.
