The idea of a personal, rocket-powered flight device has captured man's imagination for decades, yet the reality of such a device remains depressingly distant. This disparity between dream and reality mirrors the experience of playing Dark Void. There...

Dark Void Review

 

In development for the past two years, Dark Void is Capcom's latest game that has a box art that can be easily mistaken for a video game adaption of the “Rocketeer.” Is a jet pack the secret to a successful game, or simply another gimmick?

Throughout your play through Dark Void, the graphics range from average to simply incredible. In fact, just like the gameplay, only the flying will impress you with all the grand landscape that look incredible from the air. On the ground, on the...

Dark Void is a new game from developer Airtight Games, trying to bring something new to the; "take cover, shoot bad guys over chest-high walls" games that have cropped up in recent years. They do this, by adding some fun flying sections to the game,...

Not to long ago, in their march towards new and fresh game franchises, Capcom supported a promising little project called Dark Void, developed by Airtight Games. Prior release, Dark Void seemed like a good effort to revive a long-forgotten genre. In...

Looks okay and I guess the story is okay, even has a few cool gameplay ideas

It flops in just about every department and it tries too hard to be something it's not, completely failing to deliver the best of both old-fashioned air-based shooters and traditional 3rd person action games, weird camera issues, awkward flying mechanics

Dark Void Review [Xbox 360, PlayStation 3]

 

When something's successful it's replicated, again, and again, and again. Take a look at any beloved franchise in the video game industry and chances are you'll see a sea of wannabes behind any great classic. Still, innovation and progression is the...

Air combat is fast, responsive and fun ; Best use of QTEs in recent memory ; Areas can look impressive with some nice lightening ; Superb soundtrack that's basically audio chocolate ; Interesting premise in story

Appalling AI which makes the serviceable ground combat average ; Battles are dragged out far longer than they need be ; Generic looking protagonist and overall ground combat

Dark Void does a lot of things wrong, but there’s a core concept of innovation present that helps keep the game playable from start to end. While the bad may shine through on more than one occasion it doesn't outshine the good for the most part.

Dark Void Review

 

Unlike Icarus, poor Will hardly even left the ground.

Solid flight controls; some intense battles; epic soundtrack

Glitches galore; long and repetitive dog-fights; finicky cover-system; takes too long to get the jet-pack, and then it's taken away

Dark Void's soundtrack is a consistently amazing blend of techno-noir (ala Blade Runner), tribal beats, and orchestral arrangements. It's the type of score that can instantly make anything epic. The fact that it holds my highest praise should also be...

Dark Void (PC) Review

 

Watchers and Survivors clash in a world distracted by war. The fate of humanity is on the line and an unsuspecting pilot is called to their fate, one that could disrupt the current course of the Watcher invasion for good.

Dark Void does present a mystery world to enjoy; the jungle levels are lush with vegetation and there's plenty of freedom with which to explore the work of the developers. As we grew with the game, we noticed the platform design fade, laying favor to...

When playing Capcom's Dark Void, it's important to keep one thing in mind - perspective is key. Is the game's narrative predictable and uninspired? Sure, but you have a jetpack. Are the mechanics a paint- by-numbers copy of several successful game...

There's also your typical action adventure cheats like unlimited ammo, team health and grenades, but mostly, I like using the moon jump cheat…I mean come on! You have a jetpack - why wouldn't you want to combine those two?!
