Summary: The main character moves so slow throwing his weapon that he might as well just shoot himself since waiting for his throw to return has the same result. The bosses wont die until they have killed you 20 or 30 times regardless of how careful you are. The goofy weapon that makes the game unique is the same thing that makes this game well below average.
Summary: Even though the game is cheap, i dont recommend it, especially if you've just finished MGS 4, its completely dissapointing, frustrating, and quite boring. The good: Graphics The Bad: Boring, Horrible controls, nonsense story, annoying enemies, the glaive is cool the first times but gets boring and sometime useless, horrible close quarters combat. I stopped at the middle of Chapter 4 and dont intent to continue... moved on to bioshock (gladly).
Summary: While it seemed that Dark Sector couldn't go wrong with the concept of a disease turning you into a killing machine, the creators of Dark Sector succeeded in taking a cool idea and making it boring. Granted the glaive is pretty cool but the game is built to limit you to using it for most of your kills and any problem solving. If you scavenge weapons off enemies they self destruct after a few seconds making it hardly worth the effort to collect them.
Summary: My biggest gripe is the 3rd person "over the shoulder" view. May as well have made it an FPS. But then I guess you wouldn't see the dude transform. Wasn't a big fan of GOW, so maybe that's why I wasn't impressed. Incredible graphics. I just didn't like the control at all. A true 3rd person adventure is Uncharted. After playing through that game, it sets the standard. Non of this over the shoulder stuff does it for me.
Summary: I am surprised this game gets the decent reviews it does. The good first: Great graphics. The game looks stunning for what it is. It controls fairly good as well. However that is where it ends. The gameplay is utterly frustrating it takes forever to beat waves of enemies and even after you get the aftertouch for the glaive it is still an inefficient weapon. The story is essentially incoherent. There are random zombies.
Summary: Dark Sector, is in my opinion, a great attempt at a First Person Shooter. The graphics and even the gameplay are dated compared to other titles such as Call of Duty or BioShock but the graphics for its time are great. Firstly, I love the atmosphere of the game and even though, I didn't play much of the campaign, I enjoyed it for the short time I spent with it. I have heard as well there are puzzles with making different elements such as fire or ice.
