Im a sucker for a bargain game, mainly for the cheap Thrill, but this game provided no such Thrill. This Game had the potential to rival other A-Class Shooters, but it was let down by shoddy designing, a story-line full of black-holes and above all else - unimaginative Gameplay; Let Me Explain....
Let's start with Storyline: It appears the developers had the wise idea of using Blacksite as a method to Bash the Iraq War, alot of the dialogue and set-pieces have a certain 'I Hate Bush About It'.
This political story masking, doesn't hide the fact that the story-line is garbage, you get a 20-second brief at the start of Game, and the rest of story is basically your colleagues discussing 'Conspiracy Theories', honestly when i finished the Story i just said 'Huh?!?'
The Gameplay Earned The Extra Star in My Review, Primarily because the M4 Assault Rifle you get looks Cool, its your simple run-around; "If It Shouts - Shoot It, If it Shouts In Alien - Shoot It Again', there is no inquisitive gameplay moments, driving the Humvee is like driving a Shopping Trolley full of Badgers. :)
Now The 'Unborn' Enemies, all of whom seem to have a Chesty Cough; are in my opinion the most useless soldiers in the Gaming World, Worst then Grunts in Halo - They Are Useless. They seem to distaste Cover and prefer to stay in the open looking for some Bullets, it became unchallenging after the first level when you realised that This Is What The game offers - mindless drones, now the 'Aliens' are slightly more challenging mainly cause there more well-armoured and come in waves of 20 at a time in my experience.
Lastly The Levels is where this game has its high points and low points some of the opening levels are great, in american suburbs running through Backyards chasing People, and Iraq Primarily because its a refreshing re-design from the 'Standard War Games' you encounter nowadays.
Now i could talk about the Multiplayer, but i seeing as its non existent, i have better things to do; Like Watching Dave.........
