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.
