An interesting combo of gun play and melee combat: A Dark Sector
1 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dark Sector seems like one of those good but overlooked budget games but there was something interesting about the game. This game features both gun fights and melee combat. Here's a review of Dark Sector.

Story: Dark Sector is about a CIA operative named Hayden Tenno on a mission to capture a rogue scientist named Robert Mezner in the Soviet country of Lasria. During the mission, he is quickly captured by Mezner and his soldiers and soon infected by a bio-organic virus called Technocyte. When infected by this deadly virus, the victim undergoes a horrific and painful transformation into a monster. However, what Mezner didn't count on is that Hayden is suffering from congenital analgia, an actual disease that doesn't allow him to feel pain. This disease prevents him from feeling the painful side effect of the virus. Thanks to the Technocyte virus, Tenno develops a three-bladed weapon called the glaive. With his new glaive, Hayden sets out to stop Robert before he infects the world with the virus. Sidenote: It would've been nice to have a bit more back story to the main cast of characters in Dark Sector and made Hayden Tenno a bit more relatable to the player. Not that it's a huge flaw but it was something that could've been better. 3/5

Graphics: The graphics in this game isn't the best but they don't look too bad. The level design is pretty good but there are clipping issues in some spots. The glaive is really shiny and very beautiful to look at. 3/5

Sound: The glaive has an amazing sound when thrown. Michael Rosenbaum, voice of the Flash from Justice League, did a pretty good performance as Hayden Tenno. Same thing with Dwight Schultz for his villainous performance as Robert Mezner. 5/5

Gameplay: The controls are pretty responsive. While Dark Sector does barrow gameplay from Gears of War, the game does stand by itself with the melee combat. There is a pretty good balance between the gun fights and the melee combat. The game mixes it up with brutal finishers, unlocking doors, killing enemies with the use of electricity, fire, and ice, and uses something called After Touch, a mechanic that allows the player to control the glaive to hit its target. Sometimes the AI can get dense and enemies would get frozen in midair from explosions. 4/5

Despite the flaws, Dark Sector is a brutal and fun game. I recommend renting it or buying it, it's up to you.

Final Score: 3.5/5
