Excerpt: Dark Void is one of Capcom’s first titles this year but because of limited hype, it wasn’t very highly anticipated and for good reason. Dark Void takes place during World War Two and centers around William Augustus Grey. William is a cargo pilot who ends up being transported to another world, called The Void, while flying though the Bermuda Triangle.
Excerpt: It was always going to be aliens, wasn't it? There we are thinking the Bermuda Triangle leads to some parallel paradise where gamers with skills are worshipped like movie stars and eating pizza tones your abs instead of flabbing them up. But no. It leads to aliens. Big, ugly, hissing aliens hell bent on enslaving humanity. That's according to developer Airtight Games, anyway.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Latest Videos Dark Void Preview Trailer I’ve been far too busy with several games this week, to the point that I almost missed reviewing this one, buried under a stack of discs and network cables. But after playing Dark Void for a couple of hours, I wanted to take the game disc and bury it in my back yard in the hopes that it might bloom into a sequel that would redeem Capcom from this truly disappointing game.
Conclusion: Despite the lack of incentive to strive for high scores, Survivor Missions presents a challenge that is likely to suck you in for a short while. There are occasional audio stutters and minor issues with enemy spawning, but on the whole, the action holds up and offers some good entertainment value. Some may find paying for this add-on unappealing, given that Dark Void wasn't exactly brimming with content despite selling for full retail price.
Pros: Levels provide good opportunities for jetpack use, Focus on combat makes the action more lively.
Cons: No online leaderboards, Minor technical miscues.
Excerpt: Great ideas are often inspired by other good ideas. When you take someone’s design and change it to improve it, its called progress. When you take someone’s idea and use it without changing it, its normally called plagiarism or common theft. There is a certain amount of flattery involved when you use another’s ideas. Use plenty of ideas from others and mash it together and you might even be able to pass the similarities off as coincidence.
