4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Void, 13 Jan. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dark Void (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Running on: Win7 x64 | 4GB RAM | AMD PHENOM 9750 QCORE 2.40Ghz | ATI RADEON HD 4800

Graphics / Visuals: 4.5/5
Sound / Music / Voice Acting: 4/5
Gameplay: 4/5

Despite the unfair bashing Dark Void had by "critics" (since when did we start measuring how good a game is by the same criteria granted to films?) I really enjoyed playing it, the graphics & design are great and the story isn't bad either. Dark Void is good, clean, a bit gung-ho, action-oriented fun, so no, it isn't going to change your life but it'll give you a few hours solid entertainment if you're not going to be picky about the how and why of things or how 'x' part of the game resembles 'x' title but it should keep you coming back until you finish it and it's loads of fun to play, which is all you can ask of a game, really. Personally I think Dark Void is an unappreciated gem, the vertical cover system is nausea-inducing at times (in a good way), flying with the jetpack is a LOT of fun (even though it handles like a greased piglet) some moments are genuinely amazing (latching onto enemy flying saucers, pulling the pilots out of the cockpit and hijacking ships - these are NOT Quicktime events) and I really liked the way that the story tied in with the disappearances of numerous vessels and aircraft, including that of Amelia Earhart. The soundtrack by Battlestar Galactica's Bear McCreary is amazing too, and deserves a special mention, as do the occult and theosophical overtones in the story - your character "Will" fights the "Watchers", serpent-like aliens who seek to pass into our dimension and shape-change into world leaders (seriously, David Icke forumites would have a field day with this one).
