Rated 7 out of 10 by thekillingjoke82 Like it, but disappointed
This game is something I've been waiting on for quite a while now. When I first read about it in GameInformer, I was psyched, this sounded like exactly the game I love. Man becomes monster and in doing so becomes a decent man. Plus you have guns, blood, and lots of chopping off of heads. After finally playing Dark Sector I must say I'm actually disappointed. Visually this game is probably one of the best on the 360, but story wise it is very lacking. So much of what I read about in the GameInformer article was either completely missing, or just a basic version of what was described. Considering this was one of the first games annouced for the next gen consoles, I was expecting more. I loved the gameplay, it was just too short, and not too mention you really have no idea what is going on. If you love a good hack and slash, with a little bit of 3rd person shooter, pick this game up. But if you're looking for a intricate, conspiracy laden story based game, you will be disappointed.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Jose Bec Waooo!! this is good!!
Well I don't remember exactly when this game came out, but i just got it last friday, and was a little bit not sure if this gonna be a good one, but Im very glad i was wrong, this game is good the graphics are very decent, the story line is interesting, nothig new but not boring ether, the only issue i found is the control, sometimes get a little bit slopy, besides that this game is very entertainment, remindsme Resident Evil (the concept of the game) the zombies are kind freacky, i did'nt finish the game yet but until now i don't have any complain i Don't know why some people complain about this game, is just funny to me the fact when a game before came out all people is like a "oh i can't wait for this game" and then this people say oooh this game sucks!!! i Don't know i gues I am not very peaky or exigent, well any way this is the kind of game will keep you busy for a couple of weeks if you like played again and again, this is a good game to enjoy for a while.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DragonMachine a taste of gears with a twist
dark sector feels alot like gears of war. once you start playing it, you'll almost immediately get a gears of war sensation from the similar game play mechanics and abnormally similar environments. but it does have its differences too. for one, the mediocre story line has your character become infected with the mysterious virus. this virus gives you the powers of the glave. a hand held throwing weapon that cuts your foes limb from limb. it is smartly combined with fire arm combat so you don't completely rely on the glave. the powers are particularly awesome as you unlock them early in the game. the evolution engine is spectacular showing incredible graphics and animation and the game has a decent length. one of the coolest features of dark sector is the executions you may preform on wounded enemy's. when they glow red, get in close for an awesomely gruesome incapacitation. ultimately, dark sector is worth a play through for any gears or 3rd person shooter fans.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ACTIONJACKSON AMAZING!
ok let me start off by saying wow! i was amazed when i brought this game home to play. i bought this game to pass the time until i bought dead space and i ended up liking it just as much. for 6.99 you couldnt buy a better game. the challenge was really good and you get to use amazing weapons. the galive is awesome, it has so many features that will help you defeat numerous enemies. the graphics were freaking amazing. the story line was good but, it doesnt give you a lot of background before the setting of the story wich was a little disapointing but it didnt ruin how much i love this game. you basically are betrayed by the government in the game and its up to you and the galive to fix things. the length of the game is great it has about 10 hours of gameplay. and will leave you waning more after the game is over. as much as i would love a sequel i feel it would ruin the franchise of the game and make it money hungry. so if you want a long lasting game that is amazing graphicswise , storywise and lengthwise then go to buy this game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Anemicnapalm Amazing Find
Great find , i heard of this game awhile back, digital etremes was working on it (same guys who worked with EPIC to make unreal tournament)
this game blew me away visually , its on par with gears of war 1, the game-play mechanics are very cool, basically you have the Glaive , its like a wicked boomerang weapon that u can use elements with,Fire Ice, Electricity etc. to slice apart your enemies(this game was actually banned in Australia due to that) not to mention you have an array of weapons that you can upgrade and place attributes on to make em better, also as the game progresses you get more ability's i.e. bullet reflect , and after touch which allows you to steer the glaive so you can decapitate disembowel your enemy's with ease, great game D3 this is definatley a very underated Gem right here, giv it a tray its only 5 bucks cant go wrong with this game , its very action oriented , im glad i had the pleasure of picking up this game.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Gamechanger Just An Average Shooter
I'd like to preface this review with the understanding that this game is four years old. As such, I understand that it is way behind the times in current shooters. But, even still, this game is lacking to me, even behind shooters older than itself, such as Prey.
While the graphics were okay, the environments were very drab and lifeless. The controls were not very sharp and responsive and I found the constant whiny reluctance of the main-character to be a put off.
Furthermore, there were many glitches in this game, the most notable was a time where an RPG disappeared out of my hand while firing at a helicopter.
Overall, this is just an old run-of-the-mill shooter that tries to do a few things differently, but lacks in general execution and polish. Though, if you're a shooter fanatic and have run through everything from COD and Battlefied to Halo and Crysis, I guess for only $3.99, this might be something you want to pick up for a few days of dated gameplay.
Though, if you're looking for something cheap, old and fun, I would recommend Prey before Dark Sector.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Ratta Fun but not perfect
The gameplay is really fun, and at times is actually pretty challenging. The graphics are superb, as is the music. This game is in the dark style of the Condemned series, the locations are often similar to those in Metro 2033, and the music at times is similar to that of Resident Evil 5, all of which are great! The AI is okay, and actually knows when to hide and when to shoot, though is almost impossible to sneak up on them until later in the game. You can snipe enemies with your handgun with poisonous bullets, which is cool. The major problems with this game are the under-explained story (it was pretty loose, characters weren't introduced properly and their relationships/histories are a mystery), the short and vague ending, and the lack of replay value. This game's story is pretty much the bare minimum, the ending is quick and is a let down, and unless you REALLY liked the game, you probably aren't going to play it over again. It really left me wishing it's story had been fleshed out more and longing for a sequel. Overall it is a very fun and interesting ride while it lasts.
Rated 3 out of 10 by ODDBALL DO NOT BUY!
I figured I'd buy this game for the cheap price of $4 thinking it would a cheap game to boost my gamerscore and get some fun out of it. I WAS WRONG! It starts off interesting because its got a cool concept to start off with. You use the "glaive" to sever enemies' limbs, which was fun at first but that gets to be wayyy too repetitive. You'll be doing an objective in the game and enemies will just keep attacking you and spawning randomly which interrupts you a lot. The only way to kill them is the different styles with the glaive and your standard pistol because for some weird reason your half monster self can't use other weapons for that long. The gameplay is way too repetitive and the graphics are mediocre. There is no lasting appeal because there is barely any appeal to start off with. Do yourself a favor and get McDonalds with your $4 rather than this game. Muchhhhhhh better investment.

Rated 10 out of 10 by Armageddon Not many games are like this.
Who can obviously not like this game. Its a game like no other. I mean it tops everything. So far Ive never played a game like this. Its a perfect game and horror is the best part of this game. Hopefully there will be a part two for this game. For the people who dont find this game amazing are just truly not gamers. I would definately give this game a 10 out of 10. Ive played thousands of games and to be truly honest, this is different from all others. There is no game that I've heard of that his this strategic gameplay. What gives this game an extra touch is its the main characters powers. He has his glaive, force field, and he can even turn invinsible. Its a perfect combination for a perfect game. I must say that the finisher moves are even more awesome. The monsters can actually scare the controller out of you hand. I mean a perfect game. Loved it and I hope this helps.
