What Gamespot Users have to say about Blacklight: Retribution

  • User Rating 6.5

    Free-2-Play is taking over gaming, but Zombie Studios makes greed overtake their development ambitions.

    Micro-transactions and time-limited purchases make this game disappointing. If you want to unlock a single weapon permanently, you can either spend 20 hours playing the game, or you can load up a c...

    No cash? No problem. Blacklight: Retribution is here and boy is it good.

    Old school Quake/Unreal style shooter with modern graphics and professional level design, with fair business model

    Rated on April 14, 2012 by mercenary1977

    This game is old school style shooter fun, plain and simple. The graphics are impressive and this is the best use of the Unreal Engine I have seen to date. The level design is also top notch, there ...

    This game is being completely under-rated. It provides plenty of thrills and fun filled experiences.

    Nothing new to the FPS genre, but certainly unique !

    Rated on April 25, 2012 by Denis76

    I strongly disagree with the "official" review of this game. As a free to play fps, this one is holding up very nicely when compared to the rest of the genre. Level design is very good and graphic i...
