Rather than provide additional opinion, let me tell users what to expect:
-Short (4-5 hours on hard difficulty) single player campaign that prepares users for online play
-New, randomly-assigned dynamic combat missions, which encourage players to complete specific goals within a game in order to earn additional victory points (camping the capture points is not sufficient in this game)
-Customizable load-outs, including passive perks, weapons, and abilities
-Two vehicles (tank, which seats a driver and 3 gunners; walker, which seats 1 and is suited for CQC and anti-infantry)
-Deployable turrets and senor arrays
Gamers in search of a team-based shooter that is not hyper-realistic (not for ArmA fans!) may be pleased by the experience provided by Section 8.
I really want to like this game. It is a good looking syfy shooter with cool mechanics e.g. hyper running, jet pack but the core of it i.e. combat is just plain vanilla. Team play is critical for the missions but too many players are lone wolfs. I would disagree that the pre-release and final product are different. I think they are exactly the same. From what I remember from pre-release most of the items were not available for purchase with the money one earns but that is pretty much the only difference. If you played the pre-release judge your purchase on that. When it is all said and done, I like the game. Although I won't be playing it much. I generally do not buy new games at full price unless they are great, so I do regret this purchase. Customization is limited. Too few levels. Combat does not feel like it takes too much skill. Although perhaps a sequel will be what I am looking for and my money will be well spent on future games this company makes. A+ for a syfy shooter and effort but only a C+ for the game itself. Buy this if you have the extra cash or wait for the price to go down to about $30 IMHO.
Although the singleplayer campaign is fairly straight foward, it serves as a good introduction to playing online, and isn't boring to play through.
The graphics aren't groundbreaking, but they don't exactly hurt your eyes either. Some people have called the art style bland, although I personally liked it. The suits look pretty and weapons look pretty cool to me.
The big issue I had with this game was the install. Run through the install, install directX, install PhysX, then Windows LIVE (even if you have the updated versions of all of them). Start up the game and crash "Windows LIVE Failed to Initialize" or something similar. Took me two days to get this working. I had to delete Windows LIVE, hunt down a hidden folder with my profile stuff and delete that too, then re-install. This worked, but it destroyed all of my settings for every other Windows LIVE game I had.
I guess this game will work fine, if it is your only game. If you have anything else installed, the conflicts are irritating. In the end, I was happy that I didn't lose too much on this game, just more time than it is worth. I just can't believe that they never noticed this bugged issue when testing. Did no one attempt to install the game?
Apparently this title had some trouble getting off the ground and wasn't very user friendly thanks to Microsoft Live. Well it looks to me like the bugs have been ironed out as everything looks and plays extremely smooth on my system. This game was everything I was hoping it would be, namely, a hardcore multi-player game with strategic depth, in the vein of Tribes. If you are familiar with Tribes you understand the void that has existed that games like halo are unable to fill. Dynamic, Sci-fi multi-player combat with teeth. Section 8 nails it.
The graphics aren't going to win any awards for innovation, but I feel they are very good and more than satisfactorily promote the game. The maps provided(18) are very well designed in terms of layout and have some cool ambient features as well; giant nuclear rockets firing-up and launching off into space/enormous cannons firing at a fleet in orbit. The physics/handling of your char. in-game feels right as compared to similar games I've played. You can literally drop in anywhere(or on anyone) on the map, sprint easily across a map, and jet up to the tops of buildings.Read more ›

Has a very strong multiplayer aspect. I was surprised how fun it was!Published 5 months ago by Stephen
Took me a little bit to get it actually working on Windows 7 but once it was it was a fairly fun shooter. The squeal "Section 8: Prejudice" for me is the better of the two.Published 12 months ago by Brennon Denny
Would not work on my system with Windows 8.1 64 bit and the Windows games live would not activate.Published 12 months ago by John
I do not recommend this game. It may be cheap, but it's pretty lamePublished 13 months ago by kai rohrer
The game was a little bit short. But at the same time, it didn't drone on with recycled levels or redundant missions. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Greg
