Rated 10 out of 10 by yohay Great 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!
Rated 0 out of 10 by USREVENGE 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..
Rated 10 out of 10 by carbon fire 117 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.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Jureidini 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.

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 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
Rated 0 out of 10 by K.I.A. Amazing Game!!!
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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Agent 47 Delay of Game
Section 8 was supposed to come out a while ago, then it was delayed, then days ago it was pushed back up to the 27th BUT for those that pre-ordered it online ALOT didnt get it, or just didnt get it period due to some issue with the update in there system with dates and shipping. This game is a nice change of pace from other fps thats for sure with the different weapons and spawning, the story is good, everyone has there own views, some like stories, some like online action only, very few like both. I would agree though that hitting the story is a good way to break into any game though to get the controls down and action before hitting any online action unless you the know the game well. This game has alot of fun action and great replay value and was well done other than the really BAD mixup with the dates and shipping mix ups for those that ordered online, this game is good.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shorty598 section 8
Section 8 is a great game I have had my eye on it for a long time just waiting for it to come out. I finally get it and I say it is one of the best games i have ever played. The only thing I don't like is the vehicle handling other than that all the other controls are great. The game consists of hacking computers, taking over enemy bases and retrieving enemy information. I don't mind it because there is always a lot of action in every mission. The gun handling is sweet and the variety is great. Each objective is a perfect length. In my opinion I think this game resembles Halo but not exact. I hope to see a sequel. Each time you die it launches you back down into battle from the drop ship in the air i think it is pretty cool flying down from 15,000 feet in the air. All I have to say is that this is a great game I highly recommend it you will not be disappointed.
Rated 0 out of 10 Looks Good
I played the demo today and my first thoughts where this is pretty cool. The MP is sound even at just 16 players, just to think about it at 32 players is going to be pretty awsome. The Controls are easy to get use to, its not hard to get good at the game and the graphics look great but im not one into graphics. When playing MP your able to customize your kit while in playing unlike in COD4(sometimes I wish I could). Spawning in is pretty cool, you can spawn at any location on the map thanks to the drop in system. By dropping in you pick your spawn location and drop from the sky to that location. If you need to you can make some last second changes to your drop location by braking and moveing side to side. My advice to people that are thinking about looking into this game or even buying (I know I am) is to play the demo for yourself and see how you like it.
