I'm going to be brutally honest with you, most reviews written by large or fairly well known game reviewers usually base their score on the popularity of game as well as the tech and specs. I am reviewing this game souly on the tech and spec.
Presentation: This game has a reasonable story line which isn't complicated or too simple. The graphics aren't bad but neither are they fantastic, basically if you can live with a few rough edges you can get through this game, there are a few issues with frame rates though, for instance in areas with loads of action the game can lag a little, but this only happens a few times depending on which console you play it on: Ps3 lag = moderate, PS2 lag = rare and xbox lag = low to moderate, but don't let this bother you it DOESN"T really effect game play a lot. The other problem is disappearing team mates, yes sometime your team mates can disappear but they reappear when you 1. shoot your gun or 2. walk into a building or new area this again is very rare. The game has a pretty cool strategic system where you can order your squad to move or attack, as well as having to look out for your morale level. Overall the pros and cons just level out the score
Gameplay: The game play is good, sometimes a little repetitive but once you get past the first level you wont see this again, destructive scenery is a nice touch when blasting a hole in a wall to get through. Controls are simple and easy to get a hold of. In fact the game play looks as if it had influenced some pretty big games like Resistance FOM and Killzone 2, the two games looking to of borrowed of of Blacksite. The AI is good as long as you play on 'HARD' and Not 'EASY', and the enemy variation is really done well. Sometimes there are a couple of annoying long walks to get to the next bit of action and it does make you lose your rush. Overall though the gamplay excels the presentation and probably the best factor of the game.
Sound and Script: The script is again a little bog standard but there are a couple of pretty intelligent comments made by you squadrons but apart from that the script is just like any FPS. There are glitchy sounds throughout the game which for any really serious gamer who gets annoyed by anything will damage their like for the game. The music is good and builds the suspense well.
Apeal: This game should appeal to anyone who has a love for horror games, old school FPS's and possibly even Modern Warfare 1 (just a hint though). This game looks like a PS2 game but handles like a PS3 game, for those who enjoyed Half Life 2 will probably like this as well simply because it feels slightly like Half Life just not as Big or Good. If you like games with more than a cheap thrill you may want to rent or even buy this game. More than reasonable game and underrated.
