The Armchair Empire writes: " came away from the Dark Void demo trying to think of a good Gears of War reference. I settled on "Rocketeer of War" because that's exactly how I would sum up Dark Void to anyone not familiar with the title.
The character you play finds himself in the Dark Void after piloting his aircraft into the Bermuda Triangle. He wants out but he eventually succumbs to doing "the right thing" by sticking around to help the natives defend against a robot army. Then he gets a jet pack. Suddenly, you have a much more nimble character. The game mimics the Gears of War cover system and even many of the controls but with the chance to get airborne and leap large gaps, the game manages to suddenly feel different."
