I think black site has done very well with this game. even though i put 4 stars i think this is 3.5. Graphics are well designed but the programmers should make adjustments with the weapons. Just add more because most of the time you only have a machine gun. Im not saying thats a bad thing its just the game should be a bit more challenging. If they make another patch for this game MAKE MORE WEAPONS! This game looks like its on the border line for being an T-M game. Its a bit like gears of war and halo mixed but just more scary.

I find it hard to like squad shooters. Your squad members are either dumber than the bullets that mow them down or get in your way. This is advertised as a squad tactical game.

Tactics? What tactics? Giving squad orders had never been considered tactics - why should we start now? No, this is in no way a tactical game. Save that description for, say, DEUS EX or even the RAINBOW SIX series.

Moreover, your squad-members respawning subtracts substantially from the game's immersion factor. On the other hand, the enemy AI is quite high. You still can pretty much finish the game by rushing head-first, but the game makes you work - and pay - for it.

Although not cutting edge, the graphics are very nice, the lighting and shadows realistic and the environments and objects are almost all interactive (BLACKSITE-AREA 51 shares the same environment-interaction routines with a much better game, STRANGEHOLD - if you like check out my review on it as well). The conspiracy brewing atmosphere is successfully conveyed - and the weather effects add another nice touch.

On the other hand, the enemy designs they managed to fumble. The aliens are a collection of a mix of poorly developed and, let's say, older ideas.
Do you remember the HALFLIFE crabs? Check.
Do you recall HALFLIFE-2 antlions? Check (only with more horns and with firepower - and a mine that pops out when left for dead).
Do you remember the coffee&nicotine-addicted aliens in MEN IN BLACK? Check (only larger and meaner).
Do you remember the big bug-tank in STARSHIP TROOPERS? Check (only more segmented).
What finally tipped the scale against this game, however, was the poor quality control: clipping was too widespread, stuttering too frequent and freezing unavoidable.

It seems like I've had this game on my wish list forever, but didn't get it until now because of the poor reviews. If you're a fan of sci-fi futuristic FPS games, then you can't go wrong with this game at the price it's selling at. I paid $10 and this is probably the best bang for the buck I've ever seen. And yet it gets less than three stars (at least before I added mine).

The first thing you'll notice is that it has remarkably good graphics, even by today's standards. It may not be like Crysis, but it's still competitive with much of what's out there today.

Overall, this game is very typical of the genre of games that fall into the same category as HalfLife 2. Not quite as sophisticated, but it still has some surprising effects, fairly good weapons, creative monsters, and nicely rendered scenery.

Before I started playing, I installed one patch (1.2 I think) and I had zero technical problems with the game. There was one instance where the team members couldn't manage to get through a doorway which they had to go through to continue the game. I restarted from the very recent checkpoint and the problem was gone. No other issues at all. The game ran smoothly with everything set to max on my 3GHz Core 2 duo, 4 GB RAM, and dual SLI-linked 8800GTS 512 GPUs. I'm running Vista x64. It has a long list of screen resolutions and aspect ratios, so it will probably adapt to whatever your graphics capabilities are.

It doesn't have user invoked saves. It saves at "checkpoints" which happen frequently enough that you won't find yourself playing for 20 minutes just to get killed and have to start over again. I played on the middle difficulty setting which is called "HARD".

From beginning to end, this game is full of surprises. You have to work at finding the hidden dossiers and explore everywhere. More than just run and shoot, you have to think and work out strategies. This game is addictive and playing more than once is still a lot of fun.

Amazon makes it almost too easy to purchase things. I am 73 years old and in my second childhood.
BlackSite, Area 51 is one of those "Unable to stop Playing" games. Graphics are terrific if your computer is fast enough and
will handle the game. Mine will and the game is great.

I recommend Amazon and also recommend to game.

Thanks, Larry

The game itself is a bit lame, nothing more than an average shooter with no surprises at all. But what really p***** me off is that I COUDN'T PLAY AT 1920x1080. The default res is 1280x720. When I first launched the game, I succesfully changed it to the desired 1920x1080 and started to play. After a while I closed it. When tried to play again, I noticed the resolution got back to 720p. Ok, got it set to FHD again, and when clicked on "accept" it crashed to desktop. 100 times I tried, 100 times it crashed. I had to swallow the default config to be able to play. Patches won't solve the issue. So WTF!
If your native res is 1280x720, and the only thing you expect from a shooter is shooting, go ahead. Otherwise, don't.
