What it will do, however, is change your view of how the cover system works, the staple of modern gaming that has gone from idiot-pleaser in Gears Of War to game-ruiner in Resident Evil 5. The meat of all our Dark Void previews has pretty much covered this very thing, we should guiltily admit, but the problem is that this sounds pretty damn boring on paper. Well, in actuality, vertical cover has a lot to offer the third-person genre. Hanging on to the ends of surfaces and shooting enemies from above and below you is more interesting than you'd realise."
