Excerpt: Binary Domain is a confused game. While it's relatively easy to follow and understand, the game doesn't know what it wants to be. The story and weapon upgrades and skill choices make it seem like a fairly traditional role-playing game with a couple of philosophical and ethical questions, but Binary Domain plays like a cover-based tactical third-person shooter action-adventure title.
Excerpt: Binary Domain's narrative is dominated by conflict. There's the central battle between humans and robots in a future Tokyo; there's the fish-out-of-water unease of this group of western soldiers entering foreign territory; there's even ideological debate between the British and American members of this clandestine cabal sent to arrest a genius scientist making 'hollow children', self-aware robots that are convincingly human.
Summary: The best way to describe Binary Domain is that it’s the Darksiders of third-person shooters. It borrows gameplay concepts from Gears of War , Mass Effect , and SOCOM , as well as story elements from popular science fiction like Battlstar Galactica , Blade Runner , and I, Robot . And you know what? That’s okay, because it simply WORKS. Everything controls well, gameplay is varied, and the story will have you glued to its conclusion.
Conclusion: Summary: Good + Great graphics and sound. + A mixture of gears of war and vanquish (Gears of Vanquish). + Zombie robots. Bad - Some stale voice acting. - Not the most original. - So underrated. Overall I think this is a great game that should of been noticed from the start. I give this game an 8/10.
Excerpt: We've become a society where we rely on machines for a good portion of our daily lives. Think about it, they handle our money, our utilities, and sometimes even our medical procedures to name a few. In the long run though, no machine will ever feel as authentic as a human -- as something with a heart.
Excerpt: Game reviewing is a process. I play through the game and then I wait. After hours or even days, what to write will suddenly occur to me - call it inspiration, I suppose. If for whatever reason this process fails, then it's time for me to quit writing. If what I write is just the same as what anyone else would write then what's the point?
