I beat the game in just under 6 hours. Yikes! That figures to about $10 an hour for game play!

You're a soldier for the US Army, initially sent to Iran to gather some highly needed, top secret information. From there the story gets fleshed out rather hurridly along with some well over used cliches. The gameplay is fun, the sound an graphics are great. Grenade explosions are really cool and the machine gun is very satisfying to shoot.

However...

This one is a perfect weekend rental. There's a good mix of run and gunning, driving and shooting from a helicopter. I have to repeat that this game was allot of fun to play. There were 5-6 levels (I forget exactly) each broken up into smaller "episodes" similar to the Halo games. Each level was pretty unique and at first glance the game could easily be mistaken for a Call of Duty title. Only a handful of weapons to choose from that sadly, didn't follow you between episodes and I found that I stuck with the machine gun almost entirely through the game except for some of the mandatory sniper episodes. There was also a very limited amount of aliens as well, which was surprising because I was expecting more. However, the ones that were there were very fulfilling, especially the larger "boss" type characters.

I would have scored Blacksite allot higher had it been longer game. You can't imagine my dissappointment after spending $60 and then beating it the same day.

Save your money for the likes of Assassin's Creed and rent this one.

- Dan.

The graphics are sub par, and no far beyond what you might see on the original XBOX. The game is very, very short. It's unpolished and buggy.

I did play online one match and that was a little better. But this pales in comparison compared to some of the better shooters like Gears, Halo 3, and Bioshock. I picked this and Timeshift up at the same time, and Timeshift is a much better game.

It's probably worth a rental but not much more.

A couple years back, Midway updated their light gun shooter Area 51 for the last-gen consoles in the form of an action, scare, and conspiracy theory-filled FPS that was surprisingly good. Blacksite: Area 51 is more or less a follow up to the aforementioned game, in which you play a soldier and find yourself searching for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, only to uncover an alien conspiracy. The first thing you'll notice about Blacksite: Area 51 is that the game is boasting some spectacular graphics. The characters, aliens, areas, and environments are beautifully rendered; making the game a joy to look at, but that's about it. The use of squad tactics doesn't work very well, and you'll mostly find yourself engaged in battles with your squad not doing much to lend a hand. It should also be noted that there are a fair amount of glitches and bugs that occur now and then, ranging from graphical glitches to bugs in the gameplay elements. The single-player campaign is decent enough, albeit much of the shock value and scares that were featured in the last Area 51 game are absent. The multiplayer mode is uninspired and boring to say the least as well, which is even more disappointing. For all its flaws though, Blacksite does offer some solid moments of intense action, and the political commentary does conjure a smirk. All in all though, Blacksite: Area 51 is a disappointing FPS that could have been so much better than what we get here. It is worth a rental at least for FPS addicts or fans of Midway's Area 51 license, but other than that, Blacksite can be avoided.

Update! I have completed this game and it is pretty awesome! The character you play as doesn't say much but the AI's keep the dialog going. It's a great take on the old area 51 game and could only be made better by having a gun.

The game is simple, fast, smooth with good voice acting and storyline. I find it to be a perfect blend of arcade/1st person shooter. There's nothing extraordinary about the game; it's a simple funtime shooter. Yes, it doesn't take long to get through the game but I picked up a used copy or $6 and it was worth it to me.

Blacksite is a pretty fun first person shooter. It recalls the Call of Duty games in style and method of play with a little squad-based tactics thrown in for fun. The plot is a little confused (but who is really playing FPS for the story?). But you have a variety of weapons--many old favs like sniper rifle and grenades as well as some futuristic weapons. Your squadmates get happy the more bad guys you kill and they get bummed if you get beat up or pinned down. And the baddies range from Iraqis to alien/monster things. The screen gets redder the dead-er you get, but ducking for a while lets you get your wind back. And the checkpoints are frequent, so you restart not TOO far back from where you die (both features similar to CoD). A lot of reviews were luke-warm about the title, so I bought mine used through an Amazon marketplace seller. In my opinion it is solid 5-star bang for your buck. No, Blacksite is not as in depth as CoD4 and requires a lot less finesse than GRAW. But if you can find it for a good price, it sure is a heck of a lot fun.
