"Not essential, but damn good!"
4 stars"

Dark Sector really is a fun game to play. It has everything an adult gamer could want – blood, dismemberment, an intreging story-line, blades and of course monsters (of all sorts). It is a gritty and dark horror game that wont have you scared, yet pressured to fight your way through each battle that comes your way. At times the atmosphere can be a little too much, with a yellow haze/tint added to the game that sometimes can make you feel sick (the same way Doom can make some players feel sick – not because of the violence, but mainly due to the sharp movements and slight screen tint) – but other than those issues Dark Sector is certainly at the top of its game.

It is especially fun using the Sixaxis/DualShock3 motion controller to control the blade – in which you can dismember certain bodyparts of the enemies depending on what takes your fancy. Sure some may find this game a little too violent, yet others who cant get enough of Gears of War, Resistance, or even Condemned (ignoring the FPS elements) will be right at home here. Dark Sector brings most things together well, yet the linear levels, sometimes sickening camera/screen tints and shallow upgrade system bring this game down. Overall however, a recommended title to any horror/thriller fan without question.

"Awesome game"
5 stars"

Right from the starting intro i knew this was going to be and awesome game.. graphics are great, gameplay is great, and the finishers are a sight to behold :D Story makes you want to play on to find out more.

At times i thought i had walked into STALKER with its buildings and gritty feeling that something was wrong, very wrong. Just the whole feeling that Dark Sector gave off was great and added to the game. In other places i thought i was in Resident Evil with its dark and gloomy feeling with outnumbering enemys waiting to beat me to a pulp.

Another thing i liked was it was hard, but not too hard.. enough to push you but not to hard to the point where you give up. Controls are not that hard to master but in the heat of battle i tended to stick to the basics..

If you have not played it then i say give it ago you might just like it.

"Almost Amazing"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is a stunner, in looks and feels it excells. However the gameplay can get a little a repetitive. The story line is a little dubious and the visuals a little dark. But still this game is amazing, the ease with which you can dispatch foes with your glaive is phenomenal and the focus on this weapon as your main weapon is rather well done.

"A weapon of mass distraction"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Dark Sector; while not being an iconic game in the traditional sense; certainly holds its own in the playability aspect. The storyline is well-developed, as well as the premise of the game being logical. the physics engine of the game runs well, though it does glitch every now and then. The game is difficult in places, requiring more conscious thought than many other fight games – it definitely isn't a mere point-and-shoot game. There are logic puzzles, paths, triggers… you actually have to pay attention while you play, which is brilliant.

"Entertaining gore fest"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

this gajme lives up to the “uncut” billing as nothing is left uncut. As you progress your skills grow and so does your enjoyment of the game. was a bit slow starting and the graphics are a let down in some areas but i found dark sector enjoyable and well worth the bargin price i paid for it!! Thank you again mighty ape.

"Fast paced linear game"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Quiet a good game. Had the look of a great game but fell through. Game is linear. Weapons are mostly the same.

Description

Dark Sector thrusts players into the role of Hayden Tenno, an elite black-ops agent sent on a dangerous assassination mission into Lasria an Eastern European city on the brink of ruin that hides a deadly Cold War secret. Attacked by an unknown enemy, he awakens to find part of his body altered by an infection that has granted him inhuman abilities. Now, Hayden must learn to evolve, along with his powers, to survive and to become a hero.

Created by acclaimed developer Digital Extremes, Dark Sector is a new and original action-thriller designed exclusively for next-generation consoles. A dark, gritty experience packed with fast action, incredible superpowers and an engaging story; Dark Sector represents the next evolution of action gaming.

Features:
  • All-New, Original Action Title Built from the ground-up specifically for next-generation consoles, Dark Sector offers an original storyline that absorbs players in one of the most cinematic and emotionally-gripping 3rd person action game to date.
  • Evolution Powers After being exposed to a failed cold-war experiment, Hayden will physically evolve specialised superpowers that become more lethal and sophisticated over time.
  • The Glaive A bladed disc that grows out of Haydens infected hand, this weapon will be one of the key elements throughout the game. The strength and versatility of this weapon make it truly unique and compelling.

  • Collect elements from the environment such as fire and electricity to use on enemies and interact with the world.
  • Contains a light source to be used in dark areas; can be used in conjunction with conventional weapons.
  • No HUD Dark Sector removes traditional on-screen elements such as health bars and ammo meters, instead using the character himself as the HUD. As the character takes damage he will begin to physically show it, ammunition levels will be displayed on guns, available weapons and inventory will be displayed on the character all serving to keep the player focused on the character and the gameplay.
  • Intuitive controls Simplified and intuitive controls keep players immersed in the action freeing them to utilise their skills in targeting and eliminating enemies.
  • Dynamic Camera Dark Sector employs an over-the-shoulder 3rd person perspective giving the player a full view of the world around him, while also showing full visual of Hayden, to allow the player to make a connection with the character.
  • Upgradeable Conventional Weapons Beyond the evolution powers, Hayden will have an arsenal of conventional weapons at his disposal that can all be upgraded and made more powerful throughout the game.
  • Intelligent AI Players will employ special tactics while encountering new and different enemy combat tactics as the evolving AI communicate amongst themselves, take cover and offer realistic responses to player actions.
  • Compelling Main Character Hayden Tenno is a cold-blooded, ruthless character who has superhero type powers and responsibility thrust upon him a true anti-hero who makes no excuses for his actions. Through the storyline, players will witness Haydens transformation into something more than he was, his fight against the powers taking over his body and the effects it has on his psyche.
