Dark Sector


Somewhere between "Why is the sky blue?" and "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie-Pop?' lies Dark Sector, the answer to the question, "What do you get when you combine Gears of War with that crazy weapon from the movie Krull?"...

What does possibly make Dark Sector worth considering as a viable option for your entertainment is that as gimmicky as its calling card is, it is actually pretty fun to toss around for a while. For a shooter fan it's not completely inconceivable that...

Dark Sector


Dark Sector opens with a stylized approach. The world of Hayden Tenno is black and white it is not until after the first level when Hayden is infected with the Technocyte virus that color is injected into the game world and Hayden's path and purpose...

Outside of a few issues Dark Sector does a good job of blending the elements of action, story, and interaction that create a fun, enjoyable gaming experience.

Dark Sector


Dark Sector smacks of familiarity as it peels key gameplay elements from several top-tier 3rd-person shooters like Gears of War, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Heavenly Sword et al. But it's not just imitation flattery, Dark Sector utilizes familiar...

For a game all new-gen high-def, Dark Sector starts out starkly, all black and white and cinema-artsy for the whole first level, a prologue, as a Soviet salvage crew finds something alien in the hull of an old submarine. Our hero, Hayden Tenno, sent...

Dark Sector


My first exposure to Dark Sector was a small, teaser picture of the glaive weapon. I thought that perhaps a game based on the 80's movie Krull might have been in the works. I didn't feel it a stretch at the time as an upcoming game is set in the Conan...

The game does exhibit some minor faults that present themselves occasionally. In addition, the overly complex final fight of the game is prone to make some throw down their controller in disgust. However, these instances do not diminish the overall...

Dark Sector


It's fun, albeit repetitive. Post a Comment

If Dark Sector were a student, he'd be expelled for plagiarism. Thankfully, the Glaive more than makes up for the rampant copying of mechanics and ideas.

Dark Sector Review


Dark Sector is a unique game that will catch a gamer's interest for its violence and implementation of its weapon, the glaive. The glaive unleashes a tremendous amount of bloodshed throughout the course of the game through decapitations, limbs being...

Outside of the environmental changes to the glaive, Hayden gains new abilities to use without having to throw his glaive. The first is a shield that will deflect projectiles back at enemies and stop bullets from passing through. The second and third...

Dark Sector


Dark Sector is a third person shooter made by Digital Extremes (Unreal Tournament) and published by D3 (Earth Defense Force), which features a unique take on the shooting genre with an added element: the glaive, a boomerang-type weapon with three long...

Dark Sector is a very underrated and underappreciated game. It didn't receive much press or hype and I think that actually turned out well for it, because the similarities to Gears' gameplay would have severely hurt it in most people's eyes. I really...

Dark Sector - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games


The trailer for Dark Sector was one of the first “next-generation” videos anyone ever saw. Featuring what the developer claimed was in-game footage, Dark Sector purported to be a stealth game set in outer space. It was intriguing and original, but the...
