Black bringing in green

Destruction-minded Xbox and PlayStation 2 shooter from developer of Burnout now officially available in stores.

While there were reports of some stores jumping the gun (so to speak) on Black's release date last week, EA today has announced that the game is officially out and should be available at retailers across North America.

Described by its developers as "gun porn," Black is a first-person shooter set in Eastern Europe, much of which can be chewed apart by the player's hail of gunfire. Gamers will assume the role of Sergeant Jack Kellar, a black ops agent who recalls a series of missions through film noir-ish flashbacks. Those missions are composed of a harrowing series of firefights in a series of neglected ex-Eastern Bloc locales, and they feature a whole arsenal of weapons, including combat shotguns and AK-47s.

Black is rated M for Mature and retails for $39.95. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's full review.

Has anyone tried this on the 360? I'm not going to buy it, but I might add it to my Gamefly queue.

Does anyone know how to activate the BFG card that comes with the game? I pre ordered my game from EB last month, and doing so I was issued a card, but no dice on getting it to work.

What is Gun porn? Have you seen regular porn? Gun porn displays the weapons in same manner than regular porn displays women - as a object of desire. For example all menus have backgrounds of spinning, glistering guns being 'handled' by a 'professional' =) But anyways, I think Criterion will go same route here as they did with first Burnout-game. I think this is just a techdemo, on top of which they'll start to build a franchise. They'll refine the game, add more content and so on. I don't think that anyone could say that the engine-part is the one which is lacking.

I played it over the weekend. It was nothing more than eye candy with no gameplay at all.

If it had MP, then I would've surely bought it, but.. we'll see I guess.

you say it is short and the same thing over and over. Have you even played it because it comes out today, stop reading reviews and play it and then review it.

I was once excited to get this but after playing a friends copy, I've seen how mediocre it actually is. Damn shame, really. I thought it was going to kick it.

I have to say any games comes from EA has been disappoint this year, I was so hyped on this game. When I finish the game, god this game is crap. Please EA stop purchasing great developers and from good turn into worst developers.I hope the next BurnOut dont turn out bad.
