Rated 10 out of 10 by Juliankyo (racer) Awesome Shooting Game!!!
Well, this is the first time in...4 years that i try a First person Shooter, yes im telling the truth. The last first person shooter i played was...the second Medal Of Honor. So I'll try to give my best description of it.. The storyline is quite simple, a lot fo talking, basically giving u a vague hint on whats going on. The controls are soooo easy to use, even for an almost "retired" FPS Gamer, The graphics are some of the best i've seen on a PS2 Game, U are always engaged in something, either u are trying to get somewhere, or u are trying not to get killed, the action is so good, u are walking in a cementery, and suddenly u have to take cover immmediately or u will get killed, the difficulty is also well balanced. The only thing i didnt like about this game is that even on a 5.1 sound system...everything sounds exactly the same, contrary to the last MOH that I played where u could actually hear where the bullets where coming from. U will not be dissapointed when buying this game :D
Rated 7 out of 10 by AnonymouslyConfused Decent game
Black is a decent game with some nice graphics. It also comes with some great sound. As well it contains an extremely forgettable story but that is fine. I got the game for its gameplay. Which at times is just more or less decent and frustrating. Black is a fun game about 70% of the time and the other 30% is either filled with some odd moments. These odd moments are why does it take a clip to kill an enemy. I think it was their way of making the game more difficult. On the EASY setting you should be able to make it through the game. The emptying a clip into a guy is what brought the score down for me. You will in about every level find a guy up above you on a catwalk or in a window shooting at you with an RPG. Nothing wrong with that but it does get old after every single level. The level designs are mediocre and not really interesting. The only thing interesting about them is the graphics as the graphics do look pretty good. Decent game, worth picking up for a playthrough or 2.
Rated 5 out of 10 by TexasTerror Not The Best Game!!!
This game is rather short ,I wanted this game for a long time and one day I got it ans I was really excited about it and thought the game would be very long and I was On the last level of the game which was kinda hard but, I quit so I played one night and then I beat it and I was All like thats it??? I got real mad so I sold but there is one cool thing about it (Silver Weapons) those things are amazing but i dont like the way the look!!!, The weapons are good but there could have been more of a selection in the game like you use the same guns alot and the guns you like you hardly use them at all.Man The Clips in the game are kind of weird like the ak-47 you know 30 bullets but they make 3x more bigger i not saying it a bad thing its just not normal . The Thing I dont get is when you kill someone with a silencer they still hear you and then start attacking you ,man I wasted My Money But hey thats jus if your still intrested in the game you go head and you buy because im just writng a rreview fro the game!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Killzoner Really good game
Really good game. This game is like a really nice one. The graphics are extremely awesome as is the sound. It is a really weird thing looking at all the detail. it is rockin'. When you shoot a car there are bullet holes. In the first level you have to shoot down a door. It's awesome. If you like Halo, Rainbow 6 Vegas, COD4, Bioshock, Gears of War, Killzone, etc. You will love this game. I bought it, and it was the best thing I ever saw. I love this game (not as much as Killzone, but it's up there with it) so much. If you like blowing stuff up, get this. The weapons, the gameplay, the graphics, the sounds and the controls are all perfect. But this game is really short; only about 6 hours of game play; for a vet I'd say about 4 hours. But this game is so much fun; I play it over and over. I've had it since it came out, and it still doesn't seem repetitive to me. So go get this game. it is so cool!
Rated 10 out of 10 by extreem critic BEASTLY!!!!
best game EVA!! this game is just like a simpler version of any tom clancy game(controls i meen). theres no tutorial, but u dont need one!! the game is so hard, im only on level 5 and i got it like 4 days ago!! the story is kinda hard to follow, but o well, i bought this game to shoot ppl, not follow a story. the guns in this game r amazing...ak47, rpg, spas 12, sniper rifle, uzi...well, anyway...the missions are so challenging u have to play em like 5 times to finally beet em. the only problem is that u have to shoot ppl like five times in the chest to kill em...well then again, they r wearing bulletproofs. and the way u get helth in this game is so unique, but i aint tellun u how its unique. the graphix are reely good but not the best, but big woop! but ya, i totally recomend this to ANYONE who wants a challenging war game w/ simple controls!! THIS GAME KILLS(litterally)!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by WarFreak1020 YES! YES! YES!
If your looking for non-stop action you, you MUST buy this game! It's on PS2 but it looks like a PS3 game! Everything (except the length) is awesome about this game! The guns, (which are sick) the graphics, the sound, and especially the explosions! It may not be "FROSTBITE " like "Battlefield Bad Company" but it is definently something great for PS2! If you are a crazy shooter gamer (like me) and can't afford th PS3 for it's graphics, this is just like a demo and is definitely worth your money and time. The only 2 downsides of this game is there is no online gameplay, (which would make this the best video game of all time), second, the storyline is only about 8 missions (but the missions each take about an hour and a half to finish) but it doesn't bother me much. If I had 10 thumbs, I'd put them all up for this game. The only thing I gave lower than an 8, was storyline!
Rated 10 out of 10 by McLovin!! Good game!!
EA did an amazing job with this game . i went out with $20 looking for any game because i beat every other game i played . so i saw Black and i decided to try it out because i loveee shooters . THIS GAME BLEW MY MIND!!!!!! The weapons , the story , the entire game in general was absolutely astounding . Levels like the asylum , the final stage , the foundry , and that place where everyone dies were possibly the most amazing levels ive ever played in a game . i can honestly say that this is the best game ive ever played . granted , im a sucker for shooters but thats besides the point . the only downside about this game is that while you're having soo much fun , the game is shorter than expected . it took me about 2 weeks to beat and i was looking for more . but other than that i would highly recommend buying this game . plus , its sooo cheap
Rated 10 out of 10 by Fudgemonk BEST SHOOTING GAME EVER!!!
this is the best shooting game ever made! the guns and the graphics are just godly. the guns have all the right stuff to make a great shooting game. they have the firepower and the stopping power that you need. the levels can get a little bit on the long side of things but they make up for it in the fact that they are so intense that you dont actually notice that youve been playing for five hours. the difficulty can be a little ADHD. it can be exetremly hard and then become a walk down easy street. but its still a very good game. the storyline on the game is a little bland. there's just not much to it.....this is still one of the best first person shooting games i own. and i own a lot of them. the only real drawback to this game is that as great as it is, its only one player...which kinda sucks. but BUY THIS GAME. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by breezy-p great game
This game has amazing graphics. Since ps3 wasn't out yet when this game came out, it looked like it had Xbox 360 graphics. The storyline isn't all that great but the game play especially the guns are excellent. I think they are making a Black II for ps3 it should be great. One other thing that’s wrong with this game is that you can only carry two weapons on you at once. Also, when you are aiming there are no cross-hairs there is only a small dot that turns red when you are aiming at an enemy, and green when you are aiming at something that can be blown up is shot at. The missions in this game are not really tough, but they are long. You do have checkpoints but it takes awhile to get to them. I really don’t play this game to beat it; I just like to shoot the guns because it looks so great.
Rated 8 out of 10 Great.. but not all that great...
I bought this game as one of my first for the PS2, and was truly amazed by it. Pros: Control is good. Gameplay is good, but the scope could be a little better... adding scope to the guns would have been nice... The story was pretty good. Just 2 guys sitting a room talking about the dude fighting in the war... Cons: Reasoning... Seriously.. that one guy took on all of those people... by himself?? Um. no.... There wasn't even any recon or help in the game at all... The AI is a little dull... I shoot someone.. they don't come towards me or even stand behind a tree and try to fire.. they just run away... even in groups... I was like... The second and last levels were the only difficult ones. No checkpoint saves in the middle of chapters??? I'm sorry.. I didn't know that this was 1985.
