A Sleeper that Should Have Received Better Reviews

Summary: OK so it is not Battlefield 4 or even a Battlefield 3 as far as that goes. I remember the good ole days of going down to the arcade center in our town and playing those SEGA games that I never had enough money to complete. Well times have changed. You can have a fantastic arcade experience without losing those quarters. The graphics are as good as I recall at the arcades. And the story is pretty intriguing. Dialogue is a little repetitive but who cares.
Summary: I bought this game a bout a month ago and finally began playing yesterday. Once I began playing the game I simply could not stop playing it. It has been a long time since a game has made me play it all day with no rest. The story was very interesting which was a good thing because most of the games out today lack a good story line. The only complaint I have with this game is no co op.
Summary: I have a massive collection of games, (a couple hundred), and this game is one of my favorites! Graphics: 8/10 This game is almost two years old as I write this, (12/19/13), but the graphics are still quite nice. Even more so during these stagnant years of gaming where there hasn't been as much advancement in this field. Gameplay: 9/10 The cover system, while similar to Gears of War's, is, in my opinion, more fluid.
Summary: I recently got sick of Halo 4 and Minecraft and needed a break from both. I was browsing and came across this game and read some of the positive reviews and I have to fully agree with all of them. I am generally a first person shooter fan, but this game was incredibly fun to play. I bought the Xbox version and ended up playing through on each difficulty.
Summary: Shooting Robots has never been so much fun in this exciting but sometimes flawed game. Concept: 9/10 Take the cover and shoot mechanics from Gears of War and use your microphone to issue squad commands. Then wrap it all up in a thought provoking story about artificial life. The concept is good, but at times the execution is iffy. Story: 8/10 The story behind Binary Domain is a very good one.
Summary: Dont be fooled by the ugly box art! This is a great game. I picked up this game after playing Bayonetta and Vanquish. All three were made by Sega. The latter 2 were produced by Platinum. Binary Domain had a similar feel to Vanquish but was not a fast paced and frenetic. You also get a team to work with like gears of war. Commands can be issued to them like in the Ghost Recon games also but not as tactical.
Summary: Look, Binary Domain is not the greatest game ever to be released and it's certainly not without its fair share of problems but it deserved far better of a reception than it got. It's quite a bit of fun and plays like a weird hybrid of Gears of War mixed with liberal doses of "I, Robot" and "The Terminator" films. Once you start playing it, you'll really see the similarities between it and Gears of War, due to the similar weapon selection and cover system.
Summary: Wow, where to begin? Great gameplay, storyline, characters.. just about everything in this game is amazing. Sure there are a few hiccups with the AI but everything else makes up for it. Its more like an experience than simply a game. The enemy designs are awesome, especially the bosses. If you enjoy third person shooters and are also a fan of the cyber-punk genre, this is for you. It never got boring or tedious, and the graphics and very detailed.
Summary: The core gameplay element, combat, was tight but nothing I hadn't seen before. but u can't fault a developer for sticking with a formula that works. The cover element is basically what you've seen before with Gears of War, & the weapon selection is limited, but good enough to where I didn't see it as a negative here
Summary: Y'm surprised that this game wasn't too well received on the retail market, but after reading all the reviews, I thought to give it a try. The price was a deciding factor too. The design and action were much better than many of the FPSs that I've ever played. Too bad a sequel isn't on the horizon because I would definitely look seriously at getting it. One drawback though after skipping thru the story sections, the game was relatively very short.
