Product Description

Amazon.com

Binary Domain is an original squad-based shooter by Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creator behind some of Sega's most well-known video game franchises, including the critically acclaimed Yakuza series. Campaign play in Binary Domain features a trust based system in which the maintenance of relationships developed with AI squadmates are crucial if they are to follow orders. The game also features full destructible robot enemies, a wide range of weapons and a robust range of online multiplayer options.

Who is Humanity's True Enemy?

Binary Domain puts players in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle for humanity against androids called the "Hallow Children" in 2080 Tokyo. Fighting through the derelict lower levels of the city, players control an international peacekeeping squad that soon starts to question their surroundings and the choices they make, especially as they realize that the androids appear to think that they are human and they witness the dramatic divisions within society. In the face of this struggle the question becomes, are these these robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?

Gameplay and the Consequence System

Gameplay in the campaign of Binary Domain is single player and mission-based, but uniquely interactive. Players assume the role of Dan Marshall, the leader of a multinational squad of commandos known as the "Rust Crew." The different characters of the squad each have different skills and personalities which must be exploited. Players are always Dan, but also command all other squad members, communicating with them either through a headset or via their controller. As players progress through the game they build dynamic relationships with AI squadmates based on the overarching cause and effect component of the game known as the Consequence system. Within the Consequence system, the player's competence in command, as well as their demonstrated understanding of their squadmate's skills, and even the way they talk to squadmates determines the amount of trust each has in Dan. Maintaining a high level of trust ensures that commands are followed, whereas a low level of trust can result in the opposite. Players can only take a certain number of AI squadmates into missions, and with some skills being exclusive to certain characters, maintaining relationships is crucial in the fight against the Hallow Children and the player's survival in the field. The Consequence system also affects the way that the campaign of the story plays out, with the use of different characters in different situations influencing events and outcomes.

Full-featured Multiplayer Support

Binary Domain 2-10 player online multiplayer support. Seven game modes are represented in this, including: Free For All, Team Death Match, Team Survival, Operation (government forces vs. resistance forces), Data Capture, Domain Control and a 4-player co-op mode. All modes feature the choice of five character classes: Soldier, Scout, Sniper, Heavy Gunner and Striker. Each has a different appearance and different weapons.

Key Game Features

  • Experience dual layered Tokyo with a run down and derelict lower city and a clean and technologically advanced upper city
  • In the heat of battle, motivate and build trust within your squad and test your ability to make real time, difficult decisions knowing there will always be consequences
  • Fully destructible and highly resilient robots adapt to the damage they sustain encouraging you to analyze each enemy, find their weaknesses and dispose of them in the most efficient way
  • Alongside a full armory of unique weapons, put emphasis on the skills that will benefit you to increase your resilience to attack, your speed and your firing accuracy
  • Beyond the 10 hour single player campaign, take your skills online and compete against others in various multiplayer campaigns that supports up to 10 players

5.0 out of 5 stars Personality Over Perfection February 29, 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The "Yakuza" series is one of the most underrated franchises globally. It's story, character dynamics and renovations of typical brawler conventions are all amazing reminders of just how intricate and fun video games can be. With the franchise taking a shooter-style vacation this year with "Yakuza: Dead Souls", it's development team focused their efforts on a new IP with their signature flair for character and narrative, all on top of the increasingly-tired third-person shooter market. That new IP is "Binary Domain", and it's here to prove that Japanese developers not only can hold their own against Americans when it comes to action games, but surpass the gamut of them.

"Binary Domain"'s plot unfolds similar something by authors like Philip K. Dick or Harlan Ellison. In the early 21'st century, i.e. present day, humanity's downfall began. Global warming peaked and the economy collapsed, resulting in a one-two punch of cataclysmic events. The earth flooded, destroying three-quarters of the world's major cities. Only the corporations and governments with abundant resources could survive such an event, and conveniently, the most well-off ones were in the United States. This led to America becoming an international superpower by default. In order to rebuild the world which was now pretty much it's oyster, the government and technology corporations began to construct robots that could get the job done faster and more efficiently than the weary masses could.

However, this came with a price. Soon, the concept of intelligent robots who truly believed that they were human was brought to the table. This was an immediate threat, and thus the President of the United States put into motion the New Geneva Convention, which forbade any type of fully-aware robotic entity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Buy for TPS Fan. March 4, 2012
By H. Wu
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Forget all the reviews from gaming websites. This game is awesome! It feels so good to shoot those robots!

I am surprised by Sega's Yakuza series development team to create this hardcore TPS. I also imported Yakuza of the end from Japan, and to be honest; both games are just so amazing. Graphic is really nice from the moment u start; the control needs a little to getting used to, but u can change to COD style control the option menu if that is what u r used to it.

If you are on the edge of deciding wether to buy this game or Mass Effect 3... buy this one! ahah well, I ordered both. The shooting mechanics for this game is much better than ME3 in my opinion. I'm talking about Uncharted and Gears of Wars level fluid gameplay experience and shooting mechanics.

Don't wait! Buy it! NOW!

4.0 out of 5 stars This game is better than what it's been rated. March 19, 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Every once and awhile a game comes out and leaves a person baffled, surprised, frustrated, but ultimately wanting more. These mix of emotions define what a game should offer to it's consumer base. Now while it may not be THE definition of what that current genre is about, such as and FPS or RPG, it does something different enough that leaves you satisfied and most importantly respecting the craft that the developers have made. Don't know what I mean yet? Well, let me explain.

Binary Domain is a game developed by Sega, a game set in the future of 2080. This game takes place in Tokyo, a city that is, much like every popular city during this time period, suffering from flooding due to global warming. You play as Dan Marshall, an ex-marine from the US. You are accompanied by your partner Bo and try to make your way inside the tokyo walls to discover if a man, known as Yoji Amada, is producing robots called Hollow Children and bring Amada in for questioning. These Hollow Children are robotic organisms that are indistinguishable by humans and have no idea that they are robots themselves.

You meet with other team members, and international group of people, one from China, Japan, France, and two others from England, each one having a distinct speciality, such as being able to snipe or using a rocket launcher to take down heavy enemies. The interesting part is that throughout the game, you can choose different allies to accompany you and help you carry out your mission. What's even more interesting is that the team you choose will respond negatively or positively to whether or not you do a good job as a player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good shooter February 17, 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Heard from a podcast about this under-rated shooter. So far I am loving both the characters and the satisfying dismantling of robots with various weapons. I highly recommend it. Just don't use the mic to control teammates.

Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok, first off the boss battles in this game are amazingly fun. But to the main reason this game is beyond perfection to me, you are shooting robots the entire time that literally crumble into pieces as you pump lead into them. I was also actually really suprised that other people are saying there is no story to this game, I found myself actually caring to watch the cut scenes, this is honestly a crazy like movie of the year movie that you get to play. the online is so-so but with most shooters its just added for the heck of it. So this review is strictly towards the campaign, but there is a horde type mode that you can play that is actually pretty fun with up to three other people. I played terminator salvation hoping to finally get my fix of blasting robots to pieces, but I was let down badly. Not this time around, if you are a fan of sci-fi such as irobot or terminator or blade runner or sci-fi in general for that fact grab this game. The campaign took me almost exactly 8 hours to finish on normal mode, and I plan on going back at least two more times. Once to play it on hard and one more time after that just because I enjoy feeling like John Connor for once....its actually a game that I will probably never sell just because boredom sucks and this game is just so much fun to pick up at any point in the story and spend an hour making scrap metal out of all those robot bastards.
