Destructoid: Blacklight: Tango Down Review

Destructoid: The easily pleased or easily fooled might convince themselves that Blacklight: Tango Down is an excellent game, thanks to the smoke and mirrors put in place by the developers. After all, a fully-fledged first-person-shooter with impressive graphics on XBLA/PSN is pretty outstanding, and it is tempting to forgive the game's issues due to the ambition on show. However, ambition and success are two entirely different things, and Blacklight just isn't successful at anything, save for constant irritation.

I totally disagree, I've only played the trial but from what I played I really enjoyed the game, it was fast-passed fun. would give it more of a 7.5/10 for an arcade title.

Majority of FPS deserve a 5/10 this is one of the most fair reviews i've seen from Mr. Sterling. FPS are generic and its the same system insert new story and new multiplayer maps. Hardly worth 40 dollars nevermind 60.

I'll kill that fatass and pour his fat on Destructoid's servers to destroy everything related to that website someday. It's a website filled with retarded game journalists and non-retarded ones working for them are just trying to look intelligent but keep failing miserably. They are a total disgrace to the gaming journalism.

I've come to respect Jim's reviews. He makes good points and I like to see a review that actually looks for the flaws in a game.

Plus he's hilarious.


ViciousBoston, i believe this is only 15 bucks

What's up with the psycho making death-threats over there? Instaban in my opinion.

It's a Jim Sterling review, the guy pretty much tries to put down a majority of games just to get hits and make it seem like he matters in the gaming community....i like to compare him to Patcher, everyone knows who he is and know he's full of BS.

I've only played the demo of the game but from what i've seen its really good for a XBL/PSN FPS, if it wasnt for the fact that i'm kinda sick of FPS games i'd prolly give it a purchase.

talltony3024d ago

And right off the bat I knew this game blows hard core. I didnt even play all 60 mins of the trial cause everything just felt and looked extremely mediocre. No point of this game not even for 15 bucks.

Redlogic3024d ago

at least someone understands his review style. I will never understand why people get their panties in a twist when they see a review by Jim. Let me clue you morons in on something HE USES THE ENTER 1-10 SCALE!! Just because he gave the game a 3 doesn't make his review less credible. I bet most of the time people comment without even reading the review. If you do, he always backs up his scores with plenty of reason and usually depicts the games close enough. Granted, I don't always agree with each review (like his 4.5 for ACII) but I respect his opinion, because in the end REVIEWS ARE OPINIONS.

BattleAxe3024d ago

Their review scores are a bit outrageous....

Jim Sterling has become a hits whore, his reviews can't be taken seriously.

SeanRL3024d ago

This is the same guy who was making fun of MGS4's AI while playing the game on the easiest difficulty isn't it? I haven't taken him seriously for a long time.

MorganX3025d ago

I would imagine it's as good as any other FPS. It's an XBLA downloadable so one shouldn't expect MW2.

Just goes to show how FPS have become an assembly line commodity.

kingdavid3025d ago

Its not though, the shooting mechanics are poor.

Chuk53024d ago

His reviews are so widly blown out of proportion. Give it a break. It's a $15 xbla shooter. It's main problem is hat it isn't anything special. It's ok,not deplorable.

RankFTW3024d ago

Does anyone know when this game will be released on PSN?

NYPunkster3024d ago

no official release date yet rankftw.
