Summary: Recently got this game at LameStop for 4.99. With a price like that, it's basically a steal especially for this game. I'm going to go straight to the critiques: PRO: - Pretty decent graphics. - Had some scary moments or moments that put me on the edge of my seat, running for my life. - I like monster related games, that's why I chose this game. It delivers somewhat even though the variety of monsters was lacking. - Entertained me for a good number of hours.
Summary: I would recommend this game because it has great game play and also it was pretty cheap. I went and downloaded the demo off the net before I bought the game. I really like the glaive. Give it a try you'll like it.
Summary: pretty fun game and worth the 8 bucks in my opinion.
Pros: Price: got this game for 8 bucks and free shipping. it shipped monday from california and somehow got to my house in new york on wednesday with egg saver shipping (lucky i guess?) using the glaive (giant ninja star type thingy) to kill enemies is very fun. as you progress in the game you unlock new abilities, like "aftertouch", a shield, invisibility. you can electrocute, freeze, or set on fire enemies with the glaive. the gore is awesome, cutting off limbs, decapitat...
Cons: story is weak. third person camera angle is kinda weird. when aiming the sensitivity is very low but when simply moving in third person the camera is very sensitive and the options only have 1 sensitivity setting that controls both.
For $5 you can have some fun, but it's not going to change your life.

Summary: This is a decent game, that gets some points in my book for being so cheap--at this price, I'm happy with the purchase and had some fun. The graphics are nothing new, but they are certainly effective. In fact, the Russian setting in a variety of cold war bases, gulags, cemeteries, and other creepy Soviet-style locations are all very well done, varied, richly detailed and evocative.
Summary: The game feels like there was a lot of effort put into the technical at the expense of the story side. It had a lot of promise but was not fleshed out. What you do get after the game is over is more like the vague impression you’d have of a dream you’re sure was intriguing but the important interesting points are never materialized.
Pros: It looks decent (on a 50 inch at 1080), it can be fun to play at times, and the weapons are interesting. The glave (remote controlled flying blade) is fun and useful in various ways.
Cons: Lack of story elements can make the game drag on. The game is also has “bosses” to kill at the end of levels like old time arcade games. If you don’t find the pattern you spend a lot of wasted time doing the same thing over and over until you find the “trick”. Once you find the right sequences the bosses go down quickly.
Summary: I didn't finish the final scene because I got tired of doing the same thing over and over and over and over & the aforementioned video/motion thing was giving me a headache.
Pros: Price, reasonably entertaining
Cons: Very monotonous in some areas (enemy respawns and you have to defeat them multiple times or you have to perform the same actions multiple times to defeat a single enemy) and something about the video/motion in this game gives me a headache.
Summary: Put simply, Dark Sector is a fun game. The game has unique puzzles that incorporate the various abilities of the glaive, this unique weapon that your character "Hayden" uses throughout the game. The glaive eventually gains an ability called "aftertouch", which allows you to steer the glaive toward your enemies or objectives by taking on the third-person view of the glaive itself -- you travel along with it, in slow-motion, until it hits its intended target..
