Dark Void is a new sci-fi action-adventure game that combines an adrenaline-fuelled blend of aerial and on-foot combat set in a parallel universe called "The Void." Players will take on the role of Will; a pilot dropped into incredible circumstances. While on a routine air cargo flight his plane crashes in the Bermuda triangle leading him to be trapped in the Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself swept into a desperate struggle for survival at the head of a group called The Survivors. Caught in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth.

  • Sci-fi action-adventure combines aerial and on-foot combat for unparallel 3D third-person shooter experience
  • Gravity-defying vertical combat system where moving up is the only way to bring your enemies down
  • Unique grip system that allows the players to scale walls jumping from surface to surface or hijack UFO's while in mid-air
  • Explosive hover and rocket pack and special in-air moves allow players to fly with reckless abandon while performing hair-raising stunts
  • Mysterious thought-provoking storyline based on conspiracy theory and strange phenomenon
  • Main character, Will, is a regular pilot turned unlikely superhero in a wild ride to save humanity
  • The Void - a mind-bending parallel world where an evil alien race called, "The Watchers," are waiting...

I bought this in the play.com sale,5 quid i could'nt go wrong.Receieved it quickly and played it straight away.It has interesting and weird storyline,but overall it is not worthmore than 10 quid.The game is not that long,experienced gamers could complete it within 3 days,i did. I would rate this game 6/10.

I quite enjoyed this game I remember king of the of the rocket men when I was a child and I even had rocket ranger on the Amiga when I was a kid.

I was eager to play Dark Void because it has these elements and I was excited by the prospect of what the power of the PS3 could do to that kind of game. I was pleasantly surprised.

You play Will a freight plane transporter who will take anything from A to B at a cost. One day an old flame asks you to do her a favor and in the process he flies over and gets trapped in the Bermuda triangle also known as the Dark void. Which has its own set of enemies the watchers.

Obviously the key aspect of the game is the flight. Nothing I have played yet on the ps3 can quite compete with the feeling of flying into combat with a jet pack on your back; taking on flying saucers and other alien aircraft in a full on dog fight. To make things more interesting you can hijack the enemy aircraft and use their own aircraft against them which adds an extra element of variety to the tasks. Quite a lot of the hijacking is done in a similar vein to Prototype, if you have ever played that game it requires you to use a series of button presses to first get to the aircraft and then overpower the driver of the vehicle.

Another strong point of the game is the 3D physics engine, attacks can come from any angle, both when you are in the air and when you are on foot. There are some excellent sections for example when you look down and have shootouts over ledges and when you are flying up from ledge to ledge. The game truly is 3D and an enjoyable one at that.
I did find the controls to be a bit fiddly and a bit of trial and error, it takes just a bit too long to get used to them, once you do get used to them though you can pull off some incredible stunts and feel good in the process.

My major gripe with this game is the missions, you would think that coming of Capcom this game would be solid, but quite a lot of the earlier missions are just plain pointless and, to be frank a waste of time. I ended up asking myself why am I even doing this. The sad thing is some of these missions do not even push the story forward and so feel a bit like padding.

Another gripe that I had was that the combat engine did not feel complete, sometimes there are just so many annoying little firefights I just felt like sod this and I just charged in and went for the quick kills, in fact I ended up doing this a lot and succeeding on nearly every attempt. If that was in quantum of solace I would be dead. This just makes the shootouts pointless.

Where this game is let down on though is the storyline, it has to be said Capcom has to named and shamed. For most part the storyline is great and the cinematics of this game are excellent, you feel like you have been thrust into a situation you cannot understand, and you step into the character and believe in what you are doing but for some small parts the story line is atrocious. Come on Capcom, you are the developers of street fighter and Resident evil. Did you come up with these parts on your day off?

For the most part I found this game to be enjoyable and despite these faults still worth a foray into the Dark Void.

 Amazing game (Strongly recommended for UFO fans)

Game is absolutely awesome. Graphic and music are very nice. I always was a big fan of UFOs and world mystery and therefore game story is externally interesting for me.
All actions on high ground are so impressive that I was scare of that height. I like that game very much.

 good game

i saw a few bad reveiws on this game but i thought id take a gamble on it and im glad i did it has good graphics nothing ground breaking but sound a good story line through out with good action all the way and at the cheap price you can get this game for its a bargin

 Bit pricey for an average game

For a new title on the PS3 this game has sadly missed the boat, it does have some good game play in areas but sadly not enough to recommend it as a good purchase, the graphics are average for a new title & the A.I. is poor.
Took me 3 days to complete on hard, so for me it had no replay value at all.
