The online shooter market is currently dominated by the likes of Call of Duty, Halo and Battlefield; but is there a room left for a download only title? Blacklight: Tango Down attempts to answer that question.
Blacklight isn’t trying to be ground breaking or anything new, and instead goes for style over substance in an attempt to look like the ‘triple A’ titles that flood the FPS market. For the most part, Blacklight’s environments look detailed and rich, and the same can be said for the character and weapon models within the game. However, at times, texture popping does occur. The environment manages to carry off the sci-fi setting well and, overall, the game looks remarkably good for an XBLA title and wouldn’t look out of place as a retail game.
