Blacksite: Area 51

3 July 2010
  • 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, there is a mode that stands head and shoulders above the other ones. It’s the Horde mode and we’ve talked about it before.

BlackSite Review

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 to be one of the more promising first-person shooters coming this winter. Things, sadly, don't always turn out as you hope.

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.

Test Blacksite

Generation NT
9 August 2008
  • Conclusion: Bien qu’ayant été réalisé par l’auteur de Deus Ex, Blacksite n’en a pas du tout la même carrure. Le fait d’être passé de la version Alpha à la version commerciale sans version Bêta explique sûrement cela. Midway ne risque pas de se faire plébisciter sur ce jeu. Blacksite semble être un melting-pot de tous les bugs qui ont pu exister à ce jour.
  • Pros: Un scénario original, C'est tout
  • Cons: Des graphismes dignes d'une PS2, Des bugs a ne plus savoir qu'en faire, Un gameplay des plus douteux

Blacksite: Area 51

Game Boyz
12 June 2008
  • Excerpt: My first true experience with Midway’s latest FPS, Blacksite: Area 51, was at E3 in Santa Monica in July 2007. I was both intrigued and somewhat impressed with the direction that the franchise was taking. Well the time has finally come and I received my review version of the game, and after having some extended playtime with it I have to say that I enjoyed my time with it.

Expert Review

13 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Un FPS correct, sans plus. Pas assez médiatisé [je n'ai jamais vu de pubs à la TV], il ne sera certainement pas aussi vendu qu'un Halo 3 ou encore un Lost Planet, mais de toute façon il ne le mérite pas. La discussion est donc close: ce jeu est convenable, mais se l'acheter neuf serait une folie.
