Thank you GamersGate for supplying us with the review copy.

Decent 3D graphics, Upgradable weapons and armor

Boring enemies, Average game play, no servers to join

Greed: Black Border PC Review

 

Greed: Black Border is a game that doesn't quite feel like it knows what it's doing, or what it wants to be. At first glance, it looks to be a Diablo-esque title, where loot is the name of the game. But then they forget the loot early on, try to add...

Good visual effects

Not enough loot for the style of game; useless leveling up; repetitive environments; enemies take too long to kill

Greed: Black Border- PC

 

As the release date of Diablo III slipped neatly through the fingers of the hungry action-RPG crowd and settled somewhere in 2011, a collective sigh of relief could be heard emanating from the rest of the RPG developers that aren't Blizzard. This means...

Greed: Black Border Review

 

Once again, co-op play saves the day.

Impressive graphics for a top-down shooter; decent range of different skills and items to play with; Co-op play can be a blast

Framerates take a nosedive as soon as the action heats up;. gameplay starts getting tedious after you hit the umpteenth 'ambush' locale; lack of cohesive publisher support

All things considered, there is a place for Greed: fans of the point-and-click "Diablo" style of gameplay will find quite a lot to enjoy here, and for all of its quirks, it still does offer a pretty immersive universe to delve into and all for 20 bucks.

Greed: Black Border Review

 

Every once in a while some developer comes along, seemingly out of nowhere, to deliver a solid, fun game with a unique take on an established genre. After hearing a few good things about the futuristic action-RPG Greed: Black Border, I decided to give...

But either way, the core game of Greed is just too slow and plodding to be worth it compared to loading up the old standby, Diablo II, or even most of its clones. It's too bad, because there's a solid foundation here from German developer Head Up...

Review: Greed - Black Border (PC)

 

You've got three choices to pick from, the former marine who was convicted of a crime he didn't commit (the mid range gunner), a former member of a ‘cleaner' unit who lost his stomach for the job (the short range flamer), and a former scientist who...

Greed: Black Border really brings to mind a sci-fi version of Diablo II. With its simple control scheme and inventory set-up it’s easy to learn and play and offers a nice uphill challenge level that won’t leave first time players cursing themselves for...

"Other than some occasional pretty sights and an overarching feeling of comforting familiarity, there isn?t much of a reason to recommend Greed."

Greed: Black Border

 

Those who are partial to action RPG's have already had one impressive title this year with Torchlight, a game that managed to fully capture the essence of the Diablo series and was interesting from start to finish. Greed: Black Border certainly has the...

The game's presentation is, on the whole, adequate. Graphically the game looks quite good and you won't need a high specification PC to see the game looking its best which is always a plus. The interface is probably best described as serviceable and...

Looks like ‘Gear Grinder' with a marine instead of a truck!

Greed: Black Border

 

In the future of Greed: Black Border humanity has begun colonizing space and a new mineral has been discovered called Ikarium, which also happens to be a potential source of infinite power and wealth for all. If this sounds familiar that's because it...

Technically a very high quality game ; Interesting game design and concept

It just isn't fun ; Repetitive and monotonous ; Control set-up may not be fun for modern gamers

Despite some very high production values, great graphics and sound, not to mention a very serviceable UI and leveling system, Greed: Black Border lacks the most important thing a game needs to be successful; fun!
