Summary: I'd like to preface this review with the understanding that this game is four years old. As such, I understand that it is way behind the times in current shooters. But, even still, this game is lacking to me, even behind shooters older than itself, such as Prey.
Summary: Really, the only reason I bought this game was because it was $4. Under $5, I'll definitely give it a try. Storyline: Interesting. Keeps me entertained trying to figure out how it's going to end, what will happen next, who'll I have to fight around the next corridor, etc. Graphics: They're decent. Nothing really astonishing, but they're definitely up to par with the next gen systems in some sense... Sound: Good.
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: Well, this game basically rips off that old Mark Hamill movie I saw on sci fi channel when I was a kid. It also steals a bit from Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War. Undaunted by all this I rather enjoyed myself while I was playing this, after all, if you're gonna steal, steal from the best. Then again, the Guyver kinda sucks, but in a good way. You play as Hayden Tenno, a CIA assassin in a Russian country in complete devastation from biological weapons exposure.
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?)
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: 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..
