Game Informer: Section 8 Review

Game Informer:
CONCEPT: Mix Tribes and Battlefield in an online shooter with slow movement speeds, impressive jetpacks, and massively inflated health pools.

GRAPHICS: You'd have to really try to come up with a more generic space marine look.

SOUND: The soothing female announcer could be pulled from any sci-fi show or game.

PLAYABILITY: Hooray for customizable controls! Get used to jumping around more than you have since Quake 3.

ENTERTAINMENT: Sure, if you absolutely must have another team-based multiplayer sci-fi shooter, this is certainly that.

REPLAY: Moderate

Shadow0173363d ago

That sh!t made me laugh so hard pennywise you don't even know.

"Better than haze, lair, hs.."

Welcome to 2009. You don't see me bringing up Lips, You're in the Movies, Star Ocean, Race Driver, Two Worlds, Too Human, Jumper, Destroy All Humans!...

Chubear3363d ago

Why even stop there? Remember Hour of Victory and Vampire Rain? There have been many horribly rated games on the 360 but the 360 fanbase are experts at running far from these games and making sure they're forgotten.

sak5003363d ago

@above guys

Nobody turned this game into ps3 killer like ps3 droids did for lair, hs and haze. the only exception on 360 for hyped game was too human but it was still better than many of the ps3 exclusives.

ultimolu3363d ago

Sak, shut the f*ck up. Nobody was hyping Haze and Lair except the media.

Dumbass fantroll.

"the only exception on 360 for hyped game was too human but it was still better than many of the ps3 exclusives."

Ninja Blade ringing any bells? That flopped right alongside Banjo:Nuts and Bolts.

Socrates3363d ago

You guys are silly. This game is getting scores mostly in the 7s, which if you understand most review scales represents a decent game. A decent game like this isn't going to appeal to everyone, but there are going to be some people that love it. I am sure all of you have a favorite game or two that scored in the 7s. A console having one more decent game in its lineup is beneficial, no matter how you look at it.

In any case, why are there more PS3 fanboys in this article than there are 360 fanboys, when it is an Xbox 360 article? I challenge any of you to show me a recent PS3 article in which there are more 360 fanboys than PS3 fanboys. I seriously doubt you can do it.

RedPawn3363d ago

You can swirl a turd in the toilet, the problem is it still goes in one direction.


talltony3363d ago

I could tell it will suck just by playing the demo on xbox live. I got some disagrees for saying it sux and now all I gotta say is I told you so! Worst online game I have played this gen!

30 games come out in a two year cycle and 4 great games and the rest garbage or less... lol this is why dev need to take the time and creat their own engine and not this retread old Uengine. the vareity of new engine helps us gamers out more then the same old engine crap games...

HQLocated1113363d ago (Edited 3363d ago )

360 has the best exclusives.

/sarcasm (noobs)

Pixel_Addict3363d ago (Edited 3363d ago )

and your handsome.

(/sarcasm- if you have to explain it maybe you don't know how to use it)

Jsynn73363d ago

M$ has the mutant ability to hype the most crappiest games. For example, Too Human was garbage. Most of the reviews on it were bad but because 360 fanboys drink M$'s hype-flavored Kool-Aid, they'll argue that it's probably one of the greatest games of all time. If Sony were able to hype games like M$ does, they could move not only twice as much software as usual, but maybe twice as much hardware too. I put down that Kool-Aid a long time ago and saw most of the xclusives for what they are. This won't be this the last time though. I just hope people start seeing through hype and make logical, clear-headed analysis.

HQLocated1113363d ago (Edited 3363d ago )

Thanks, I know I am.

@Pixel Addict: Is it true that if you don't use it, you lose it?

FlameBaitGod3363d ago

360 does got the best exclusives.

LMAOROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!! I wouldnt even get this for PC!

Chubear3363d ago (Edited 3363d ago )

Just out of curiosity, how many high end, true exclusives has the 360 had this year? It seems there's a pattern with MS using the Christmas period to flush out 2 or 3 highly anticipated games but have nothing but dry exclusives through the year 'till Christmas.

I would like to know though how many high end exclusives have come out for the 360 this year so far though. ... and please, don't be silly and mention Halo wars or Section 8 or some crazy thing. I said high end exclusive not any-willy-dilly exclusive.

Socrates3363d ago

Until this year, Sony was the same way. Just because the PS3 had a good year doesn't warrant making a bunch of inaccurate generalities. Next year looks completely different for the 360, with several megaton games coming out in late winter or spring. Alan Wake, Mass Effect 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction are going to be huge. I don't think I have seen any console in recent memory with a lineup like that so early in the year.

BattleAxe3363d ago

Chalk this one up as another great title for the XBOX 360 :)

BWS19823363d ago

devoid of big releases on Sony's part, if MGS 4 released in June last year?

Just saying...

I'm glad they canceled the PS3 version.

Saaking3363d ago

The demo is TERRIBLE. IT sucks so hard. It's a very bad game.

NegativeCreep4273363d ago (Edited 3363d ago )

Buh Teh Downloads is more than Pain and Fat Princess. Teh sales are what make it good!

RedPawn3363d ago

Your right this game is pure trash, F the sales ya'll, my post is not to incite B.S, seriously.
Don't believe it watch the 45 sec ending w/the sh!tty dialogue, right after the main dude sticks the knife in the (wannabe General Corrosive's head).

Saaking3363d ago

More great exclusives for the 360 right bots? LMAO!

Obama3363d ago

I remember when they released the cgi trailer, all the bots go "Killzone2 killer!" imao.

3sq3363d ago

BAM! Well, there you have it, bots. Hahaha
