BlackSite: Area 51

7 January 2012
  • 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.

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.

  • Excerpt: When a creative developer tells the world that their latest game “was so f*cked up” before it’s even released, you know that you’re headed for trouble. And with Midway’s spiritual successor to 2005’s summer hit Area 51, that’s exactly what happened…

Blacksite: Area 51

Gamecell
14 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Having been a fan of the previous Area 51 this is a major disappointment, a game that rarely looks or feels finished. But I’d like to sum up on a positive note so I’ll just say that the on-rails Hummer ride that happens early on in the game was exciting and fun, and some of the set pieces including...
  • Pros: Errr... It has HUMVs and Blackhawks in it, Some exciting B-Movie moments…
  • Cons: Exciting moments are few and far between, Poor graphics and plenty of glitches, Looks unfinished, Boring weapons, Stupid glowing icons, Disappearing bodies, Hovering pickups, More C-movie than B-movie

Review-Xbox 360: Blacksite

Playstadium
15 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Midway har med Blacksite vist os, hvordan man på rekordtid kan få sendt et lovende projekt på katastrofekurs. Julen frister man svage sjæle og altså tydeligvis også udviklerne hos Midway, der i håb om at få deres del af julesalget, ikke har været blege for at sende et halvfærdigt produkt på gaden.
  • Pros: : Et gennemtestet og ikke mindst færdigt spil.
  • Cons: : Generelt over de mange fejl og mangler.

Dans un cadre extraordinaire mais familier, nos peurs les plus profondes viennent de prendre vie. Une petite...

BlackSite : Area 51

Tom's Games
26 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Malgré un univers cohérent, une mise en scène de bonne facture et un gameplay qui tient la route, BlackSite est un titre passablement bâclé qui manque de fond. Que ce soit sur le plan technique, visuel, scénaristique, le titre de Midway aurait mérité un bien meilleur traitement !
  • Pros: Un gameplay classique mais efficace, La petite ville de Rachel, La mise en scène qui tient la route
  • Cons: Trop court, La réalisation clairement bâclée, Le scénario trop prévisible, L'intelligence artificielle, Les phases en véhicules

  • Conclusion: Muligheden for at hente og afprøve spil i demo-udgaver har været en af de mest mærkbare forandringer i denne generation af konsoller. Det er en unik mulighed for udgiveren at få fremvist sit produkt på, og muligvis det bedste grundlag for en potentiel køber, at basere sin vurdering på, da det hele...
