Test Blacksite

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The encompassing issue with BlackSite: Area 51 is that it lacks polish. A lot of the features in the game feel out of place or just aren’t fully realized. You’ll spend most of the campaign leading a squad of soldiers into Rachel, Nevada to fight off an invasion of unidentified enemy races. You command your squad using a single button interface. Mark a spot on the ground and your squad will move into position.

BlackSite: Area 51

Game Over Online
12 December 2007
  • 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. Unfortunately Black Site: Area 51 does not share the same qualities as its predecessor (though it should be noted this is not a sequel). The encompassing issue with BlackSite: Area 51 is that it lacks polish.

A Terrible Shame

  • Conclusion: When Midway announced the arcade light gun shooter "Area 51" was being resurrected for the Xbox and PS2 it seemed like a great fit. At this point in time, first person shooters were turning out well on the console platform and Area 51 was a testament to that fact. With a celebrity voice cast, a tried and tested story and intense action, it proved to be a hugely entertaining, if highly generic, experience. The same cannot be said for this rough sequel.

  • Summary: BlackSite, developed by Midway Studios Austin, is a next-generation game that will redefine the first person shooter (FPS) genre. While other FPS titles claim to feature 'action-packed, highly realistic gameplay,' BlackSite: Area 51 takes next-gen gaming to an all-new level integrating cutting edge technology, game design and story writing to create the ultimate entertainment experience.
