PSN Review - Section 8: Prejudice (ATemporaryDistraction.com)

ATemporaryDistraction.com: "As more and more developers embrace the sales potential of downloadable gaming, the PlayStation Network is becoming increasingly crowded with titles trying to deliver high-grade gaming entertainment for a low price tag. The larger challenge for games studios is how to deliver a title that competes with full retail releases in terms of size, quality and value while contending with the limitations and minimal price points of downloadable platforms. Most opt to turn those online store limitations into an advantage, embracing the lo-fi charm of retro-themed graphics and gameplay, but incredibly few developers have tried to go all out and cram everything you’d expect from a big budget release into a PSN title.

A couple of games have tried offering the thrill and variety of a AAA first-person shooter in downloadable form (like Blacklight: Tango Down and Modern Combat: Domination), but at the expense of a metaphorical hacked off arm, releasing multiplayer titles with no real single player content. Section 8: Prejudice has the commendable honour of being the first downloadable FPS console title to come packed with everything you’d expect from a title you’d pick up in a brick and mortar store for four times the price, and while a few rough edges and a generic story call attention to the budget price, the gameplay is a top-tier experience for both solo and multiplayer gamers that’s overflowing with value and variety." (PS3, Section 8: Prejudice) 4/5
