Product Description

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.

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.

Browsing the plethora of reviews and finding that they handed out mediocre (or worse) scores for this game only served to reaffirm my belief that the majority of so-called "professional" critics and awards (though the latter is another subject entirely that I'll not get into here) are completely worthless. Simply put, the critics got it almost dead wrong when they reviewed Dark Void. At the risk of utilizing too much formality, I will break this review into two parts. The first part will discuss how the vast majority of critics' criticisms are completely off the mark, and the second half will discuss what they somehow missed about this game that makes it worthy of a place on my shelf next to Half-Life 2, Fallout 3, Bioshock, and the like.

For starters, critics complain that you spend too much time without being able to fly. This is flat-out false. First off, the ratio of levels that contain wide-open areas that encourage dogfighting and enclosed levels that encourage on-foot or hover action are pretty even. This is what is known as VARIETY. Not many games can claim that they have a flight simulator, a third person shooter with a super-jump and hover ability, and a platformer (of sorts, which I'll get into later on) in one game, and fewer still can claim that they implemented each mechanic with the same quality and care. In fact, I am hard-pressed to come up with a single example of such a game. Further, even when you are in an enclosed base of some kind (which is NOT the majority of the time), you can still go into flight-simulator mode for a few seconds to cover an amazing amount of ground in the space of seconds, then turn it off and hover...or even drop down and melee someone, earning you style points. And as I said before, it is a rarity that you are in a confined space.

Platform for Display: PlayStation 3
Graphics: 7/10

They use the Unreal Engine, and as usual it looks great. The color pallet is a little muted, and enviroments can look a little repative. Little details like changing character costumes in different settings are missed.

Sound: 6/10

Voice acting is a little hit and miss, altough more hit then miss. Nolan North does a good job, altough the character feels a little too much like Nathan Drake (of Uncharted series) at times. The sound design is solid, but not spectacular. There are some hicups in the sound at times.

Story: 4/10

This is a B-Movie turned into a video game. You basically are sucked into a link between paralell universes at the Burmuda Triangle, and spend the rest of the game trying to liberate this world. The plot throws some things in there, and then doesn't do much with them. They jump from the proagonist meeting everyone, to months later and having familiarity with everyone. Things are rarely well explained. Most importantly, the character arc of the protagonist is VERY lackluster. The games ends, and you feel like shrugging your shoulders and saying "whatever". There are some fun ideas here, but nothing comes to furition.

Gameplay: 8/10

Every B-Movie is dependent on it's gimmick. In this game, the gimmick is you get a jetpack. Quite frankly, the way they pulled it all off is pretty cool, and makes up for the unremarkable aspects of the game. You start with your basic cover shooter, and this works just fine. Then they give you the jet pack, and give you a level or two to learn the mechanics of it, and now you can play the game however you want. This concept natually gives the game great varetiy, never letting the game get stale.

I'm not a great gamer and barely qualify as a dabbler -- I bought my PS3 and Xbox mostly for my nephew and niece to use. But DarkVoid appealed to me based primarily on the jetpack angle and the 1940's "Rocketeer" story setting. I ended up playing the entire game through -- okay, so I did it on the Easy setting but, hey, this is only the second game I've played to completion and the first since Crackdown a couple years ago. DarkVoid was generally fun -- you got to do a lot of shootin', and you got to do some jetpack dog-fightin'; the storyline didn't make a whole lot of sense but it's all just (interesting) window dressing for the gameplay. I wasted some time because sometimes the level goals weren't clear. I also thought some of the on-screen symbology was not clear -- example: I didn't realized until I was 95% done with the game that what looked like a bullseye indicating where to shoot was actually an indication to push the circle button on the hand-controller; oy. Bottom line: I liked the game, and became somewhat obsessive/addicted about making progress, but I also know I'm not any kind "power gamer".

If you ever played Crimson Skies you'll feel right at home. Control config. is even the same wich is a good thing. Newbies might have some trouble with camera work but is a skill easily attained. cover system is basic and easy but the real fun is in the flying. 2 hours slipped by me without even focusing on the missions. I gave this game a 4 because the cover system can be a little etchy at times, and graphics arent too wowing, but this is definitely a game that should not b ignored.
