Trivia

When you reach "Lies of the Past: Checkpoint 4", you will see a replica of the Moon's surface, a model of the U.S. space suit, and a shuttle the United States used to reach the Moon. This is in reference to the Moon Landing Conspiracy, claiming that the U.S. never actually reached the Moon, and faked the landing to beat the Russians in the space race. See more »

Excellent
14 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Area 51 is an all around, action packed game. From the very beginning cinamatic you are hooked. The story line is just amazing. The graphics is spectacular.

This game is not meant for younger generations however. The game contains a lot of profanity and gore. The rating on this game is Mature for obvious reasons.

The only other thing that i would have to say was wrong with this game was the length. It was too short but then again most of the video games are becoming short.

Overall though the game is grande. It will make you addicted with the many different weapons and storyline. It will make you think "If the government is hiding something, could it be a good thing?"
