When it first made an appearance, Dark Void looked to have it all: an interesting premise, a cool retro sci-fi style, a winning combination of gunplay and aerobatics, a dashing hero, romance and lots of derring-do. The finished product is no disaster, but it is a damp squib. Dark Void is the sort of game that elicits not exhilaration or excitement, but a shrug, a frown, the occasional smile and the odd moment of contempt. I'm not suggesting that it's the worst game you can buy, but it's hard to imagine anyone investing £40 in it and not feeling disappointed."
