For a long time, they put out terrible PS2 game after terrible PS2 game with some licensed crap thrown in here and there for good measure (Pirates of the Caribbean, Ben 10, Kim Possible, etc.). Somehow, around a year ago, D3 quietly reversed their fortune and put out two of the very best games of 2007, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords and the criminally underrated Dead Head Fred. Two quality releases doesn't exactly make up for years of borderline painful games, so I was understandably skeptical about Dark Sector.
The game wasn't even a blip on my radar until a few weeks ago. After I checked out a couple of screens and gameplay videos, I left myself become cautiously optimistic. Now that I've spent some time with the game, I'd say that Dark Sector is both blessed and cursed to follow in Dead Head Fred's footsteps. Like Fred, the game is a blast to play, but lukewarm advance reviews and a curious lack of marketing will probably hurt the sales numbers. Blockbuster smash or no, Dark Sector is an action extravaganza, with one of the coolest weapons ever, that may very well become 2008's best game no one played."
