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.

Dark Void takes the cover based shooting style of gameplay and adds a jet pack. That's really all you need to know. Cover based shooting has been done to death but by adding the ability to fly around makes it a complete game changer. Now rather than slowly trodding from cover to cover you have the option of flying to a sniping position, or using your jet pack to do a strafing run, my personal favorite is flying over a group of well bunkered enemies and dropping a grenade into the middle of them. The worst part of the game is by far (spoiler alert) when they take your jet pack away and you go from being a homicidal rocketeer to a boring guy with a gun.
The rocket pack is the main gameplay mechanic, and you can tell a lot of work went into it. The controls are simple and intuitive and the flying animations are entertaining alone, especially going from hovering to flying. There is aerial dog fighting which allows you to fly around shooting enemies with your jet pack mounted guns, or skyjack their flying saucers, it does seem odd that there is nowhere in the game where you switch back and forth between dog fighting and ground fighting.
Another selling point is the T rating, this comes from the fact that your enemies are alien robots that bleed blue and the profanity is mild and sparse. This is a good buy for parents who won't let their kids play gears of war or for people like me who just get sick of the constant stream of profanity most games throw our way.
The biggest drawback to this game is that it is too short, which means it doesn't overstay it's welcome, but it ultimately left me wanting more. The lack of multiplayer makes the length an even bigger sticking point. It's like opening a bag of oreos and finding out there are only three left in the bag.

Okay, before this review gets voted 'not helpful' hear me out first. I love playing genuinely good games for xbox 360 but I also love boosting my gamerscore. If you enjoy doing the same this game might just be for you. For those of you that played Capcom's other quirky-action-third-person-shooter, Bionic Commando, you pretty much know what to expect only this game is easier, the achievements are even easier.

4/5 for achievements. 3/5 otherwise.
Game is not bad overall, it could have been improved. I'll break it down.

Story: It's okay. But what is a good story in games these days, the game that gets a 9.9 on ign.com that everyone obsesses over for... a week until the next game? I've seen better stories in worse games as well as better games with lame stories, it's highly subjective.

Control: It does take getting used to, but I found them to be quite comfortable relatively quickly. Just be patient. Again, like Bionic Commando, but the controlls are actually easier and similar to TPS games we all know and love.

Visuals: The character renderings themselves aren't bad, but I think the visuals from the stages are really cool and creat a nice atmosphere. Once again, pretty objective.

Sound: Although there are well known voice actors, the voice acting could probably be better but maybe it was the script's fault. The music for, what it is, is not bad but does get repetitive. The sound effects are pretty cool, but any game in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround sounds cool.

Fun: Again, from an achievement standpoint, I had a lots of fun with this game. All of the achievements are painless. The game is pretty enjoyable itself and is a nice break from playing Modern Warfare 2 online with glitchers and lag switchers. It is pretty short though.

Some people are saying that the gameplay wasn't that great, but the story was good. I disagree. The gameplay was excellent. The game takes awhile to get to the point where you can freely go from the ground to the sky on demand, but I like that, because the game builds up to that point. It's a very cool sensation to be strolling along the ground, and then to all the sudden rocket into the sky. I saw someone complaining that the up and down controls aren't inverted when walking, but are inverted when flying. The options actually give you the option to change that however you want, and to be honest I like that the up/down controls go inverted when in the sky. It just feels more natural for me, but again, you can change that if you want. The ground controls are a lot like Gears of War, and Terminator Salvation, whereas the flight controls are a lot like a flight simulator game, but without a plane, which is very exhilarating. In the air, going 100 mph you're even able to mount enemy aircrafts, and rip the enemies out of their ships and if I remember correctly, you can then hop in the cockpit and pilot the enemy aircrafts yourself.

The reason I left out one star is because the storyline was very strange. The first half of the plot was great, but after awhile, the story becomes hard to follow, and the ending then comes out of nowhere, leaving you with a lot of questions. I guess they were hoping for a sequel, but the incomplete story was one of this games downfalls.

In terms of parental concerns, from what I remember, it's very family friendly. You use laser guns and blast a lot of robots. I don't remember any major foul language either.

Also, this game IS NOW BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE for Xbox One, so the 360 version of the game will work on the 360 or the One. Considering that you can get the game very cheap these days, I'd say it's worth a buy!
