Dark Void is a new release came just coming out a couple of weeks back, and as soon as it was on the market I was quick to grab it. I could of ordered it on amazon with no fuss of going out and it was in fact cheaper than the shop price, but I just could not wait for it to arrive so I went to game the day it came out. It costed me around £40, which was average for a PS3 game, I know some games were around £65 when they first came out.
In general the game was brilliant, the main feature was you to fly around with a jet-pack to some some of planets to kill the enemys, you could even land on space ships and hop in there and just ride the space ship to go whether you want, and indeed that saves time. When you are on the jet-pack it is fairly easy to use. Unlike on other jet-pack games, here the steering is excellent and goes in the right places where you want. As well as that the speed is terrific, you can slot it onto slow to medium to fast with your speed-o-meter.
Whilst in the air you can do various stunts which will boost your speed and make your power go up a little, but only for a short period of time, then it will go back to your normal strength.
When you are in a battle mission and you die, you lose your jet-pack and is terribly hard to find another, as it does not come back on you automatically, so most of your time in the game is you looking for the jet-pack.
On your jet-pack there will be some shooters acting like and built in gun. When you shoot you can lock on to your target and it will just go to it. But when shooting there is really no enjoyment, theres no vibration on your dual-shock or nothing. So its just like pressing L2 or R2 and I light goes in the screen.
The enemys you face are usually all the same, which makes it kind of boring, like every single one does the exact same moves over and over again, and is so repetitive which really can get you switching the game off.
Your surroundings in the game are OK, sometimes you are in space and then the next mission your are in a mine cave with falling rocks hurling at you, which of course you will need to dodge or you will die, then you will need to restart from where you started, and if you got a really long way, that would be terribly annoying.
Overall it is a pretty exciting game, just the lack of enjoyment put into the game puts the marks down. You seem like a real person in the game but the surroundings are unreal which really does put you off the game.
Satisfactory if you like these sort of games.
