Reviews and Problems with Dark Void

Showing 1-10 of 73

Unique sci-fi shooter with robotic enemies and some cussing.

Common Sense Media
3 May 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Dark Void is a sci-fi shooter, yes; but it's not as graphic as many other third-person action games because the enemy is a robotic alien race and their "blood" is blue. But still, players use all kinds of military weapons to ward them off. The game is also deeply rooted in science fiction as the protagonist ends up in an alternate world and gets a jetpack from Tesla the inventor. Mild language includes the words "hell," damn" and "bastard.

  • Excerpt: Siren: Blood Curse is a third person survival horror game which made its first appearance on the Playstation Network. It’s now released on disc to pick up those with no internet access. The game itself is an Americanised remake of a Playstation 2 title (Siren) and if that raises concerns then read on.

Dark Void

Square-Go
9 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Dark Void is a new game from developer Airtight Games, trying to bring something new to the; “take cover, shoot bad guys over chest-high walls” games that have cropped up in recent years. They do this, by adding some fun flying sections to the game, and a verticle cover system. It’s quite an interesting concept, but is it done well enough to be a good new franchise? There are a few sides of Dark Void. There’s the Ground, Verticle Cover and flight combat.

Dark Void Review

  • Excerpt: It was always going to be aliens, wasn't it? There we are thinking the Bermuda Triangle leads to some parallel paradise where gamers with skills are worshipped like movie stars and eating pizza tones your abs instead of flabbing them up. But no. It leads to aliens. Big, ugly, hissing aliens hell bent on enslaving humanity. That's according to developer Airtight Games, anyway.

Test Dark Void

Generation NT
2 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Dark Void ne fait donc pas dans l'originalité ni dans le plaisir de jeu. Quelques heures passées en sa compagnie suffisent à dresser ce constat : il s'agit ni plus ni moins que d'un jeu de tir à la troisième personne auquel on a tenté d'ajouter quelques phases aériennes peu réussies. Le titre affiche surtout une grande linéarité, un scénario inexistant, des mécanismes de jeu cent fois vus et revus.
  • Pros: Tentative d'apporter un peu de diversité dans le gameplay
  • Cons: Une IA absente, Un scénario inexistant, Très linéaire et sans surprises, Banalité du gameplay et de la mise en scène

  • Conclusion: Dark Void Gets a 6/10 Game ratings: Capcom disappoints all of its fans and even worse they pushed aside lost plantet 2 and dead rising 2 for this?

Comment on how i did because this is my first review and i aim to improve..thanks to readers....and if you play this game then please tell me your opinion of it...thanks.

Review: Dark Void

  • Excerpt: Some games can be interesting on premise alone. Take Dark Void, a game in which you play a man with a jetpack fighting aliens in an alternate dimension. Tell me that doesn’t sound awesome!

Dark Void

ActionTrip
1 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Hm, looks like ex Valve talent Kim Swift ( of Portal fame ) arrived a little too late to save what has apparently become a sinking ship.
  • Pros: Looks okay and I guess the story is okay, even has a few cool gameplay ideas;
  • Cons: It flops in just about every department and it tries too hard to be something it's not, completely failing to deliver the best of both old-fashioned air-based shooters and traditional 3rd person action games, weird camera issues, awkward flying mechanics.

Dark Void

Gamer Limit
26 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Dark Void suffers from poor execution that prevents its interesting blend of unique gameplay styles from ever forming anything cohesive enough to be considered an enjoyable experience. It’s truly the first big flop of 2010.
