Blacksite: Area 51

  • Excerpt: Blacksite: Area 51 is the successor of the not-so-bad shooter Area 51 where David “Mulder” Duchovny took the lead. Blacksite on the other hand, has as much to do with its predecessor as apples with bananas.

  • Excerpt: Back in 1995 a little light gun game by the name of Area 51 was available to play in arcades. This game never really left too much of an impression on

  • Excerpt: This past weekend we had a chance to sit down with Midway’s recently released teaser demo of Blacksite: Area 51 for the Xbox 360. While short in length the demo does pack quite a punch that conveys a fast-paced, visceral action-driven shooter that should appease fans when it drops this fall.

Gears of War 2 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: In addition to the really excellent competitive multiplayer modes (Submission is a personal favorite, though I would love to actually play as the meat flag) and the campaign co-op which has a bunch of achievements tied to it so I hop you have a friend willing to go through the whole thing with you,...

Game Over Online
9 September 2008
  • Excerpt: I enjoyed Midway’s recent remake of the classic arcade shooter, Area 51, released in 2005 for the PS2, Xbox and PC. It wasn’t out-of-this-world by any means, but the game did a tremendous job building a creepy atmosphere and it was fun to play.

Blacksite: Area 51

Video Game Generation
9 September 2008
  • Summary: I didn’t even go into detail about the multiplayer aspect of Blacksite: Area 51 , because it honestly doesn’t matter. The single-player experience is weak, and Blacksite ’s relatively generic online modes certainly aren’t worth the cost of admission alone (and nothing you can’t find in many other...
  • Pros: A few of the game’s scenarios are unique and challenging., Good enemy design.
  • Cons: Heavy-handed commentary on the Iraq war that fails to produce any meaningful or insightful commentary., Squad-based gameplay is largely nonsensical., A technical mess – bad framerate problems, tearing, and other graphical glitches., Poor level design and poorly implemented in-game advertising.

BlackSite Review

VideoGamer.com
22 August 2008
  • Excerpt: You'd think Midway would have learnt its lesson after the painfully flawed WWII FPS Hour of Victory bombed earlier this year. And for a while I genuinely thought they had. Action packed shooter Stranglehold is one of the most entertaining games released this year and Midway Austin's Blacksite looked...

  • Conclusion: In the audio department, the game does a good job producing realistic sound effects. The sounds of shotguns, rifles, and other armaments are faithfully translated. The ambiance for background has some bone-chilling effects to it.

True achievements
17 August 2008
  • Conclusion: The online ones are tough because of connection problems and the amount of people ever online. Finding people to boost with can also prove to be challenging because not many people have this game.
