okay first off let me say that this is the most unique shooter ive played in a while. Okay. Now the storys a little weak and is boring and to be honest has no good moral or plot to it whatsoever. The multiplayer however is fanfrickentastic. Its like starwars battlefront 2s gameplay in the sense that It is simple as capture base, kill everyone thats god a red arrow over thir head. Its very simple for the most part. An assault rife is an assault rifle. I Missle launcher is a missle launcher. A machine gun isnt a dc-17 model b class 43. Its a machine gun. simple. The game also features a sprinting system called overdrive. You begin sprinting and after a very short period of time you will enter a third person veiw where your gun will be placed on your back, or your pistol will be placed in your holster and you will run abnormaly fast and it will get you anywhere pretty dang fast. Also you have a jet pack sytem which is more like a high jump which is very useful in being a coward. all i can say is no matter who you are you need to at least rent this game
I really enjoy this game. It is fast paced, challenging, and just cool! I am very happy that it doesn't have bad language in it. I'm not allowed to play games that have bad language, but I have played Call of Duty 4, and Halo 3 on split screen. I don't have Xbox Live so I don't know what that is like. The Storyline is ok, but I like the action in it. There aren't very many guns in it. Here is the list: assault rifle, machine gun, shot gun, sniper rifle,missle launcher, and pistol. The pistol is very powerful and can be used often. There is a lot of equipment to make up for the lack of primary guns. Also you can have two primary guns with you. I could carry a machine gun and a sniper rifle. That is really cool! I like games that have that. The game is similar to Halo, but I think the graphics are better on section 8! I would like to mention that there is more to do in single player than just story mode. I give this game a great rating and I highly recommend it. When is Section 8 the sequel coming out!
No type of shooter like it
When I first saw this I thought it was a ripoff of halo I soon found out this game is one of a kind. Being able to drop off tanks and online the unique use of teamwork I really was impressed about this game. Its got some flaws witch keeps it away by a nine but believe me this game is still pretty awesome. Its not a ten or a nine but don't let that eight throw you off. This game is actually good so if I could this game would be a eight and a half. So if you like kill-en robots on a Friday night like most people, this game will blow your mind. So this game is probably in my top 20.
i am beta testing right now!
this game is emmense, so far i am beta testing the game and i can tell you if they get the controlls down this game will take on COD halo and gears of war. The gameplay is like Battlefield or domination in the COD series, however its not all game the flags, randomly side missions appear. the side missions offer points in which u buy either a deployable sentry turret, repair station or vehicle. The spawn system is burning in, and is amazing it gets kinda old but ts strategic. if you burn in around an enemy AA gun, and dont have the perks to survive you will get torn to shreads. so far the issues in the beta. its on PC ( pc shooters fail GTFO pc gamers) you can have to many deployables in 1 spot. you can have 2 turrets and 2 repair stations and its hard to take that out base defenses do almost nothing other than the AA and sensors the rocket and mini gun do nothing not enough vehicles, from what i see only a tank, and mech suit the last thing is if ur sketchy give it a chance, this game will definatly take time to get used to..
Great Budget FPS
I picked this up from Live while at a friends place a long time ago when it was released at a sale price of 800msp i believe. I didn't really get to play but came back and gave it a whirl recently. Straight from the beginning you are thrown into serious action, and things stay that way most of the game. What happens though is that you will find many sequences in campaign become repetitive, or you will encounter the occasional glitch or section of the game that is simply not fully ironed out. What is most apparent though is that the graphics in this game are quite amazing, they make up for alot when combined with the constant action. Unfortunately, it seems as if due to the underrated and under-subscribed nature of this game...they have removed multiplayer support. All in all, for a game that is less in price than most any DLC for other big name FPS, this is certainly worth a try. I sum it up as a meaner, rough around the edges Halo.
Yeah, something different!!!!
Get this game we need you!! Finally some sci fi competition for halo. Fresh ideas are the name of the game here. First off no more spawn camping, the burn in spawn finally eliminates that and it is fun to slam into the ground and be ready for action wherever you want. All the different loadouts and weapons keep you trying different strategies so you can play to your style. The run mechanic is great for getting somewhere fast or getting out of a bad situation fast. The jetpack is great for getting around to higher places or getting the jump on someone. Its not just a game of hold your territories, with all the extra objectives you can turn a game around to get the extra points to win the game. The online is so fast and fun I am really happy I got this game, every match feels like a real battle to win. The graphics are good and the sound is pretty good. One thing don't get this game for the story, to me it was just practice for online.
This game is really really cool!
this is probably one of the coolest shooters i've played i a while. though the graphics are not as good as they could be with the unreal engine and the story being a glorified tutorial, this game is fun. I picked up this game expecting it to be.... average being as the producers have recently produced some not so good games like legendary and two worlds, but it is above all expectations, the burn in feature is great and it is an awesome feeling to land on someone from 15,000 feet without the air breaks, and it is a cool feature to be able to call in anything from a turret to a tank. overall this is a cool game and i highly recommend it for sci-fi shooter fans or anyone anyone looking for something new and interesting, overall i give it a 8.75 out of 10.
This game is... THE BOMB!
This game is a new Halo. I previously bought Halo Reach and got bored with it quickly. I got the demo for this and it is amazing! I also tried it on my friend's console and it was perfect for Halo Gamers! You can go on a epic journey in campaign, or go with your friends and battle each other! I had to choose this or Vanquish, I choose this.
halo destroyer finally
I love everything about this game I've played all the halo games from the xbox to 360 xbox this is by far is the best game online or rather offline too. You can play aginst bots for offline player or online players too. I am telling don't wast your money on the up coming games hint hint you know its the same games with new maps. This game section 8 has over 10 different maps plus up coming content. Yes the story line is fun but the multiplayer is a blast to play even the offline multipalyer is great when you play aginst bots if you don't have xbox live. If you play multiplayer get ready for some awsome fun. You can drive tanks call in for aa guns customize your weapons so how could you not want this game. I am so glad its on xbox 360 you ps3 people are missing out. Finally I would say this game is better than any halo game I am getting tired of that series instead section 8 brings some thing new to gamers. One last note you can play 16 vs 16. And yes people use their mics to talk its soooo much fun thanks south peak games you made my year. Game of the year players
i picked up Section 8 Saturday and was just amazed at how great it is. The graphics are great and Timegate did a great job of balancing ease with an equal challenge to test any player. This is nothing like Halo/GoW and i can attest to that as i've played both. Nothing in Section 8 is related to Halo or GoW. Sound quality is amazing; I have my 360 running throuhg a 5.2 surround system and was blown away by the amount of raw explosivness from the effects. One thing i don't like is the, as a lot of people from the beta/demo/etc. have said, the speed at which you move. walking is just ridiculous and the sprinting turning into a massive overdrive gets a little annoying. I do like the mutiplayer, though the jetpack is overused, since there's just constant action going on. If you're looking for a great game then i suggest picking up Section 8. This is definitely a top contender for Game of the Year.
