College News reviews: Dark Void

"Dark Void is an incredibly solid game that is marred by a number of glaring flaws which, unfortunately, aren't all superficial. The problems with the storyline can be arguably excused. Maybe a game centered around jet packs and aliens doesn't really need a coherent narrative, but there's really no escaping the tedium that begins bogging down things down only a few hours into the gaming experience.

Most of the gameplay mechanics that Dark Void introduces are well crafted and a lot of fun to experiment with, but the missions don't give you the opportunity to make the most of them. As a result, more often than not, it feels like you're doing the same exact thing over and over and over.

Still, if you're willing to accept Dark Void for what it is, there's still a whole lot of fun to be had from it. It's not the brilliant, groundbreaking new property gamers were probably hoping it to be, but it does bring enough to the table to stand out from the crowd."
