Blackwater review

GamesRadar
12 September 2012
  • Excerpt: “If your arm gets tired, switch to the opposite one.” Sage advice taken straight from Blackwater’s loading screens, almost as if the game is admitting “we know it’s physically painful to play this, but take solace in the fact that you have two arms!
  • Pros: Ridiculing it all with friends, Any other game more, Hating it
  • Cons: Yourself for buying it, The store for selling it, 505 Games for publishing it

Blackwater

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: A Kinect based shooter was inevitable, but does Blackwater deliver the goods? If you’re expecting Modern Warfare with Kinect controls, you won’t find that here. But you will find a brisk, fun shooter that proves there is still life left in an arcade style, on the rails shooter.

Blackwater (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: Blackwater is a game that endeared itself to me before I had even inserted the disc. Blackwater is trying to be a little different from most other games – I like different. It’s not your typical first-person shooter and it’s not your typical Kinect game – Blackwater certainly is trying to be new...

  • Summary: When your name is Sylvester Stallone and you decide to tell the story of a group of military mercenaries who save a country from an evil dictator, you call that project The Expendables , and you put together a dream team of action stars that includes Jason Statham and Jet Li.
  • Pros: Collectibles and alternate routes provide replay value
  • Cons: Awkward controls, Unintentionally hilarious chatter between team members, Checkpoints with amnesia

Blackwater Review (X360)

GameZone
7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: With any new motion-sensing device, you’re bound to run into a developer’s project that simply doesn’t grasp how to properly use it.  Last week, it was Hulk Hogan’s Main Event , a completely disconnected – and awful – “wrestling” game that was better left sitting on retail shelves.

Blackwater

Total Xbox
25 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Playing Blackwater makes you feel like Zeus, but instead of hurling thunderbolts, you’re spraying bullets. You play as the elite team of Devon, Baird, Eddi, and Smash trying to help a local cadre do…something, against insurgents in a place called Harri.
  • Pros: + Kinect controls are precise, empowering, and don’t make you feel silly while playing., + Ability to shoot enemies while the game moves you from place to place.
  • Cons: ? Is anyone else tired of snarky soldiers?

Blackwater

Gamereactor
2 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Blackwater is an ambitious project. The developers at Zombie Studios have tried to render the controller obsolete in first person shooters. The ambition was to give the player an authentic experience of what it is like to be an elite operate through Kinect, but unfortunately things didn't go as...
  • Pros: Nice flow to the motion controls.
  • Cons: Repetitive, few options as far as controls go, shallow and uninvolved campaign.
