  • Conclusion: That said, there's potential in some of Dark Void's concepts for a great sequel. If Capcom choose to commission one that is. Us? We won't be holding our breath.

Dark Void Review

ME Gamers
10 March 2010
  • 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.

Dark Void (PS3) Review

411mania.com
5 March 2010
  • 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.

Dark Void Review

PlayStation Universe
4 February 2010
  • Summary: Dark Void had some great concepts, but ultimately they were never realized. Flying is entertaining enough, but the rest of the game is repetitive and mediocre at best.
  • Pros: Utilizing the jetpack to fly, The wonderfully exciting soundtrack
  • Cons: The enormous audio and visual glitches, The repetitive and boring missions, The lack of originality; Dark Void plays like any other third person shooter

  • Excerpt: The demo for Iron Man was really fun. Flying around in Tony Stark's custom-made suit seemed to work fairly well, the suit itself looked cool, and it appeared as though SEGA had really captured the feel of being the Armored Avenger. The ability to go from running on the ground to flying in the sky seemed like a perfect combination, but, sadly, this wasn't the case. In fact, it turned out to be a terrible game, and did little more than give gamers a taste of potential.

  • 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.

Dark Void Review

19 January 2010
  • Summary: Dark Void tries to combine high-flying action with cover-based shooting, succeeding at the former and stumbling on the latter.
  • Pros: Flight controls are stellar, once you get the hang of them, Bear McCreary's score is excellent
  • Cons: Awkward on-foot controls, Forgettable art style, visuals, and villains, Cliché-ridden story

You will believe a man can fly. You just won't care.

  • Conclusion: Dark Void is all over the place. The story’s never explained adequately, the combat’s pretty much always a chore, and flying isn’t nearly as fun as it should be. I don’t hate Dark Void, but I don’t care for it, either. This is one of those titles that just exists; I doubt few will remember it this time next year.

This hybrid takes forever to start, and runs out of gas too soon.

  • Conclusion: Again, it's not that Dark Void is a bad game -- the designers included some nifty gameplay elements and an engaging, Stargate-type setting -- it's just that it doesn't feel like it knows exactly what it's doing. The ideas weren't taken to their logical conclusions; the designers stuck their toes in the water, pulled them back, and decided they needed to gather a little more gumption before they could dive in.
