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.

BlackSite: Area 51 Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Blacksite also offers Xbox LIVE support for two to ten players, with the usual round of versus gametypes up for play. Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag are all available to play and follow the formulas FPS fans have grown to know and love. The obligatory extra gametype for Blacksite is called Abduction. In Abduction, one player starts off as an alien, or "Reborn", and proceeds to try and take out the human soldiers running around.

Blacksite: Area 51 Review

Xbox Evolved
5 February 2008
  • Summary: Blacksite is an ordinary FPS that could’ve turned out really good if it weren’t for the collection of bugs and other issues. The story just passes because it has one, and it’s about aliens. Graphics would score better if not for the bugs, and a re-release or solid patch could fix that in the future. The sound doesn’t stand out but isn’t awful, and voice acting suffers from scripting, not casting.
  • Pros: Good-looking characters and environments, capign is of decent length.
  • Cons: Squad tactics never seem to work out quite as well as you want them to, Lots of little bugs and issu

Expert Review

Inside Hotwire 3D
27 November 2007
  • 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. The musical score is okay for the most part but some of the dialogues can be cheesy. Overall, BlackSite: Area 51 is a solid arcade shooter for casual gamers who are looking into a straightforward FPS.

BlackSite: Area 51

Xbox 360 achievements
18 November 2007
  • Conclusion: While the game tends to be quite fun when you begin, after a while you'll feel the boredom setting in. The story is nothing new or even all that interesting, which is surprising for an Area 51 setting. The graphics and sound are good, but nothing extremely special. The online is just like every other FPS as well, though it was quite fun. Basically, the game isn't terrible, but it is nowhere near amazing. It felt generic and forgettable in almost every aspect.

BlackSite: Area 51

15 August 2008
  • Conclusion: Midway certainly has a knack for releasing enjoyable games that don’t sell nearly as well as they deserve to – Psi-Ops, NBA Ballers and Blitz: The League could all fit into this category – and with Blacksite, it looks unlikely to buck this trend. It’s a perfectly sound release but with so many top-notch shooters to choose from already, this is barely going to factor on the radars of many people. The shame.

Test: BlackSite

xboxfront.de
29 June 2008
  • Summary: BlackSite – bei dem Namen des Nachfolgers von Midways erfolgreichem 'Area 51', das seinerzeit auf Xbox und PC begeistern konnte, müsste jeder Fan von Shootern, Aliens und Science-Fiction aufhorchen. Bereits Ende November gelangte 'BlackSite' in die Regale der Händler eures Vertrauens. In einem unserer ersten Tests im neuen Jahr könnt ihr nun in nachlesen, ob 'Midway' bei seinem neusten Sprößling hält, was im Vorfeld versprochen wurde.
  • Pros: + Spannende Hintergrundstory, + Gut gelungene Grafik, + Angenehm umfangreich, + Insgesamt guter Shooter…, - … mit technischen Mängeln…, - … und teilweise grauenvollen Synchronstimmen, - wenig Neues, - Multiplayer?!
