Product Description

Product Description

Dark Void is a single player sci-fi action-adventure game for Xbox 360 that is destined to change the way gamers think about third-person shooter combat. An adrenaline-fuelled blend of aerial and ground-pounding combat mechanics and cover systems headlined by the game's signature in-game items--the hooverpack and jetpack--in it players will experience 3D action like never before as they transition from ground to air combat, and back again whenever they choose.

Set in a parallel universe called "The Void," in Dark Void players take on the role of Will, a down on his luck cargo pilot who crashes in the Bermuda Triangle, and is inexplicably transported to the alien dimension which is the mysterious Void. Here this unlikely hero is caught up in a desperate struggle for survival, joining forces with a rebel human group called The Survivors in their struggle against an ancient and hostile race known as the Watchers who have enslaved the humans of the Void for millenia. Will's main goal is to discover a way to get back to his own dimension, but in that he and the humans of the Void have a common enemy, it eventually seems that he may be destined for a higher calling as well.

Story
Set in a parallel universe called "The Void," in Dark Void players take on the role of Will, a down on his luck cargo pilot who crashes in the Bermuda Triangle, and is inexplicably transported to the alien dimension which is the mysterious Void. Here this unlikely hero is caught up in a desperate struggle for survival, joining forces with a rebel human group called The Survivors in their struggle against an ancient and hostile race known as the Watchers who have enslaved the humans of the Void for millenia. Will's main goal is to discover a way to get back to his own dimension, but in that he and the humans of the Void have a common enemy, it eventually seems that he may be destined for a higher calling as well.

Gameplay
Action in Dark Void is a combination of aerial dog fighting and third-person ground combat that brings a thrilling new gameplay dynamic to the third-person shooter experience. Ground combat within the game is more or less standard to action in similar games. The aerial portion, is another thing entirely though, and is facilitated by a hooverpack and even more powerful jetpack with a mounted gun that Will is equipped with. Although there are other weapons in the game, these primary weapons allow players to hurtle through the Void at blistering speeds, shooting down anything that gets in their way. Available at anytime in the game after aquired, they epitomize 3D action by introducing a unique vertical combat system full of possibilities and bringing a whole new sense of tension and thrill to the player. In addition, if they so choose players can use their aerial capabilities to counter attacks leveled at them while on the ground and to deal with spatial issues that they may face throughout the game. But just becasue the hooverpack and jetpack are available at all times, this does not mean that they are always the best option. Through trial and error as well as experience with the devices, player's must determine their best uses for each situation.

As a companion to its duel combat style, Dark Void also contains a duel cover mechanic. As with other aspects of the game's ground combat, players can expect convenient standard cover options, including a single button option to snap to cover against walls, etc. Cover options while using the hooverpack and jetpack are understandably more varied though, with players being able to utilize vertical cover options to shoot both up and down.

Dark Void is a new sci-fi action-adventure game that combines an adrenaline-fuelled blend of aerial and on-foot combat set in a parallel universe called "The Void". Players will take on the role of Will; a pilot dropped into incredible circumstances while on a routine air cargo flight crashes in the Bermuda triangle leading him to be trapped in the Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself swept into a desperate struggle for survival at the head of a group called The Survivors. Trapped in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth. Dark Void's unique combination of in-air and on-ground combat creates a thrilling new gameplay dynamic to the third-person shooter experience. Taking 3D action to a whole new level, Dark Void's vertical combat system allows players to dangle from thousand foot drops as they take cover and drop enemies from above and below, bringing a whole new sense of vulnerability and thrill to the player. Defying gravity in vertical combat is only half the battle as, over time, Will is upgraded to a powerful rocket pack which allows for fierce in-air combat as gamers are able to fly through the void at unparallel speeds shooting down anything that gets in their path. Blasting away at massive bosses has never been this much fun as Dark Void offers a unique grip system made up of a variety of grip-based mini-games including skyjacking UFOs mid-flight.

Really enjoyable game, in fact got addicted to it. Slows down at some points with some pixelation. My main gripe is that I completed it within a couple of days. Glad I got it for less than £12, becasue if I paid £40 for it I would not be a happy man!!

OK I stayed well away from this game for a long time because I judged it by it's cover! It looks so much like Iron man, great film but probably bad game (not sure). After reading a couple of reviews that suggested it was a little like Uncharted I thought I would give it a go plus less that £7.... OH MY GOD!!! What fun is this game, the story line is good, shooting is great, maylee attack wow, and there is flying what's not to like... I've been playing the game on normal and have not finished it yet, but as soon as I finish i'm going back in, on hard!!!! This is my gift to you, buy this game if you like Uncharted and thank me later, Have Fun!!!!!

Given the cheap price I bought this for, I'd still have been happy if I'd spent 3 times much on it.

Fun story, script may fall down in one or two places but that happens in 99% of games.
Graphics are decent although not on a par with the top titles but most titles don't try an have such a huge environment on display at any one time.
Entertaining gameplay with the fully 3D nature of the combat. Novel vertical cover sections where the enemy can sometimes try and get above or below you to outflank you. AI of the enemies is decent enough so at least they don't always run through the same motions and will react differently even if trying the same sections again.
Soundtrack is good too.

Trophy hounds should like this too as all the trophies seem obtainable.

If I had paid a full new release price in the region of £40 I might be a bit more critical of it and score it slightly lower, but it has definitely given me as much or more fun than most of the top titles I've played.

I was surprised to see dark void on a list of the worst ps3 games ever, sure its not one of the best, but there really are a lot worst games out there. If your a fan of 3rd person shooters this might be a game to have a go on seeing how cheap it is, the graphics are good, choice of weapons is quite varied and on hard mode the game can be challenging in parts while not being overly difficult. Story wise and voice acting, sure its not uncharted or anything and you'll most likely play it once and trade it in but it is fun. So in my eyes if you get a copy of this for £5 or so its a bargin, and you'll get a nice little trophy set to if your a hunter.

It's a fun game, but it's nothing special. The game has interesting ideas, using the jetpack is fun, but it feels a bit lacking in certain regards. Like it feels too easy to lose focus or crash into the environment around you. The guns are pretty creative, and are mostly energy based, alien weapons, but they lack any real punch. The weapons are effective, but I never really feel like they're having a real impact. Take Uncharted for instance, when you shoot enemies in that game, the characters body jerks or they stumble, but in Dark Void, I could be firing a barrage and the enemies will be less effected. Most of the enemies are robots though, but I doubt their lack of reaction was deliberate.

The story is serviceable, it gets you to each part of the story well enough, but I sometimes found it hard to follow. The main character isn't very memorable, and much to my personal annoyance, he takes his helmet off too often or loses it. It's a minor thing I know, but it's on the front cover, he really shouldn't lose it or take it off, as often as he does. One thing I will say is that the voice acting is very good though, but the dialogue isn't always great.

The game has a good cover system, that is effective in vertical shootouts, or in traditional shootouts. The jetpack allowing you to move around the map fairly quickly or using the sprint to cover large distances and avoid energy blasts. Ammo is plentiful, and it's easy to swap out your weapons at weapon cache's scattered around maps or picking up fallen enemy weapons. There's some good variety in the enemies you fight, most are Pawn droids, meant to soak up bullets, but you do have kamikaze bots, jetpack troops and heavies who use bigger guns. Also the massive knights who wield rocket launchers and a energy minigun.

Good game overall for the price. Little of the Uncharted touch to it in comedy between the characters. Downfall is there's no online, which is a shame.
