Dark Sector - It's Banned in Oz, but Should you Care?

Gameplayer has gone live with their review of Dark Sector, the latest effort from Digital Illusions which was recently refused classification in Australia.

"Except that, instead of becoming a drooling mutant (hordes of which you'll soon start slaughtering), you become a super-powered death machine, with a three-bladed throwing knife that mysteriously appears in your infected right arm, and a funky array of super powers that grows as the infection spreads."

A game with a review of 7/10 is no flop, a game that is 4-5 out of 10 is a flop.

nuff said. Well at least I hope it's nuff said since i've been waiting so damn long for this game, and a great game in general. Hopefully it's just another jaded reviewer either way i'll play it, and decide for myself.

You know, we have no problem with reviewers having opinions on our games as long as the opinions are based on an honest review of the entire game when it's actually finished. We were extremely surprised to see Gameplayer post a review of our game this week when we still have yet to send out any review copies to the media because we haven't gone gold yet.

Through some investigation we found out that Gameplayer reviewed a build of Dark Sector that only had 4 levels of the game unlocked and was sent to them for preview only. They somehow mistakenly reviewed it. (not sure how that mistake happens exactly when builds are marked clearly for Preview Only) The build they received was also from December so several months before the game was even close to being finished.

It really sucks when people jump the gun and make huge mistakes that can, in turn, make a huge impact on the success or failure of years of the blood, sweat and tears that goes into game development. We just hope they own up to it and try to fix the damage they've already done.
