BlackSite: Area 51

  • 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
2 March 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 titles). Blacksite: Area 51 ultimately tries and fails to rely on its controversial storyline and mediocre gameplay.
  • 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.

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 the “Blackhawk ride” (also available as a free demo on the 360 marketplace) and special effects are spectacular.
  • 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

BlackSite

gamereality.org
18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: "BlackSite on ehkäpä yksi tämän vuoden huonoimmista peleistä, saatika sitten räiskintäpeleistä. Pelistä on vaikea löytää oikeastaan mitään positiivista sanottavaa, vaikka ne muutamat hetket pelin parissa välillä hyviltä tuntuvatkin. Jos pelillä olisi ollut moninpelaajia, olisi arvosana mahdollisesti noussut kahteen ja puoleen tähteen, tai siitä jopa ylöspäinkin... Pelin saama arvosana onkin käytännössä arvosana oikeastaan sen vain yksinpeliosiolle.
  • Pros: + Ne pienet hyvät hetket räiskiessä, + Ok äänet
  • Cons: - Tyhmä tekoäly, - Tylsä ja lyhyt, - Kenttäsuunnittelu ja sen erittäin näkyvä lineaarisuus, - Melko ponneton grafiikka, - Livessä ei ole pelaajia

Review-Xbox 360: Blacksite

Playstadium
3 April 2013
  • 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. Vi skal et smut til Nevada og hvor solen står højt og din skygge er så dårligt udført, at du kan tælle hvor mange pixels den består af.
  • Pros: : Et gennemtestet og ikke mindst færdigt spil.
  • Cons: : Generelt over de mange fejl og mangler.

  • Conclusion: Havde spillet blot b�ret en budget-pris, s� kunne jeg bedre anbefale det som et alternativ, n�r man f�rst var blevet tr�t af de mange bedre spil i genren denne vinter, men i stedet er der tale om et produkt under gennemsnittet, som kun de allermest tr�ngende vil finde st�rre nydelse i at gennemf�re.
