In GI's mind, Dark Sector has remained a wild card since they first heard about it – one of those ideas that sounded fun, but whose execution seemed tricky to pull off. Happily, the finished product is well worth the long wait. Dark and gory visuals are delivered through a wealth of remarkable graphical flourishes, from amazing rain effects to stunning textures and shading throughout. Hayden's meandering tale is sadly quite forgettable, but at least the gameplay is a blast.
As negative as GI have been, they still feel that Dark Sector is worth checking out. The glaive is something that every action nut has to wrap his or her hands around. Like the BFG or the cerebral bore, you'll remember this weapon forever. Sadly, you'll remember the weapon more than the game itself.
