What exactly is BlackSite: Area 51? 1UP mean, of course it's a first-person shooter. It's a story of government conspiracy and of borderline-supernatural happenings. It's a sort-of-but-not-really sequel to a generally well-regarded but uncelebrated shooter. But what is it, fundamentally -- what's its reason for existence?
That's a good question. It's not really scary, though it has its moments. The occasional surprise attack can make you jump a little in your seat, for example, and the game dishes out a few scenes where you're going up against a creature so vast and menacing that it can be a bit harrowing. But this is most definitely not a survival-horror game.
