my 1st impressions of the game were not good. i thought it was a 7 because the voice recognition wasn't working for me as good it should have and the dialogue during gameplay was sub par and repetitive. plus i had just finished playing gears 3 an hour before i started this, a game binary domain gets compared to all the time, so it felt off.
but the more i played binary domain, the more i loved it and realized that some things they do different than gears is for the better. your character is more agile. (no roadie run)
the story is fantasitc with a few twists at the end and the voice acting during cut scenes is great overall. its has some humor sprinkled in that actually made me laugh out loud at times. it reminds me of a good big budget summer action movie. some of the action sequences were fresh and i liked them. i was very surprised at how good this game was. i hope they make a sequel and they implement voice recognition in a better way and use kinect so it works a lot better

Binary Domain is an fast-paced action shooter.
Plot - In this game you play as Dan Marshall an ex-sergeant for the US army. The story takes place in Japan. Dan and a group of mercanaries are on a mission to find and contain a guy named "Amada", that is creating humaniod robots called and breaking clauses on the thing called "New Geneva Order". I would also say that the story is one of the best in a while.
Combat - The combat is pretty simple, it has a cover-system as you find in 95% of the 3rd-person games, while the cover system is really fluent, it still works. Another addition to combat is that if you own a mic that works for your Xbox, you can give your squad "Commands", I found this quite frustrating becuase most of the times, becuase whatever you say sometimes gets misinterrupted with another word, like I would be saying "Regroup" and it would say "Retreat". You can also upgrade your assualt-rifle and buy things called "Nanomachines" which upgrade your character.
Bosses - In Binary Domain, there are alot of bosses and mini-bosses, all of the fights are some-what unique and diffrent. I found that the bosses were accualy really fun, some might be somewhat annoying, but they're all intresting in diffrent ways.
Scenery - In Binary Domain, you go through many diffrent scenery, for example you go from a Sea Wall, to the streets of Japan, to the "Underworld" of Japan.
Multi-Player - In my oppinion, multi-player is absolutely terrible. It reminds me of MW3 fast-paced run and gun, but the gameplay compatibily dosen't work. It's not a normal type of server. You have to START the server for the game to begging, and since there's only like 3 servers at a time running, since no one plays online. If, the host goes AFK, you have to wait untill he comes back to play.
The horde mode is the same, it's like any other horde mode in any other games, but there's only 3 maps and they are linear, and not unique.
