I don't like dropping spoilers when writing reviews so I will make this short and sweet. Dark Sector was one of the first games I heard about in development for the next Gen systems so my expectations were high when it came out a year after great games like Gears, Resistance, BioShock, and many others. The games graphics are "ok" not mind blowing but par. The Story is ok and the voice acting is not bad at all. The game play is great at first learning your new weapons and such.....after that it goes downhill. It becomes very repetative. Overall the game is solid but not Great. I would say this game is like a frankenstien of "The Darkness","Fear', and "RE4".
The second part of my review will be the Online portion. Most reviewers do not do this well at all. The replay value on this game is not there. The online only has two modes and good luck finding anyone to play.
From chest impaling to multiple severing of heads and limbs Hayden, Dark Sector’s dark hero, delivers that gore and graceful 3rd person shooting mechanics like Gears of War. Being the first game ever announced for a next generation console, taking well over four years to complete, it really shows in the quality of gameplay in both single and multiplayer modes. For those of you lucky enough to own a high definition television set the game design and textures are absolutely gorgeous. Remember what you thought when you first saw Gears of War? Most likely, “Wow, look at this game it looks crazy! The A button does everything!” Dark Sector easily has the same effect on a first time player. What it lacks in a chainsaw bayonet, it makes up for it with the Glaive. I’m not trying to say it is Gears of War, but with it’s almost identical controller layout and stylized gore its hard not to compare the two.
Concerning the story:
Dark Sector thrusts players into the role of Hayden Tenno, a covert operative sent on a dangerous mission into Lasria - an Eastern European city on the brink of ruin that hides a deadly Cold War secret. In the midst of this mission, Hayden is attacked by an unknown enemy and infected by the Technocyte Virus… -DarkSector
Glaive action…what is it? Have you ever wanted to throw the razor disc from Predator 2 that cut Gary Busey in half?
at first it was boring and not much fun. but just keep playing and a little bit after it gets fun.i played for a few days and got bored of it.but overall the graphics,story,characters, and some other things were good.but i do recommend renting it and trying it.
