    fake widescreens ... but otherwise great entertainment

    First, it must be said that if you have a strong inclination for third-person shooter you can't go wrong with buying Dark Sector -- $20 is a great deal. If a third-person shooter is something you play now and then for fu... Read Full Review

    So much potential, such a big miss

    Hiya yall, I am a shamed to say i purchased this game, it was brilliant until after you kill 200 "baddies" using the glave it's all the same old splat and blood, only 2 or 3 close range kills that get old quick. Guns... Read Full Review

    A total surprise.

    I remember trying to play this game some time ago, but for no reason I can recall I quit playing it. Now I got it at a big discount and I must say this game proved to be a treat. It's a great third-person shooter with s... Read Full Review

    Worth 3 bucks. Krull meets Resident Evil meets military shoot em up.

    For 3 dollars that i paid for preowned, i'd say it's jst about what it's worth. Finished it in 4 days, which is longer then some games i finished in 2 days. Very linear game where you really can't get off course and get... Read Full Review

    Dark Sector is an atmospheric journey, but shows its age in gameplay aspects

    Dark Sector was a game I always had in the back of my mind. I have been meaning to play it since the first time I got an XBOX 360, about four years ago. For some reason I always delayed this decision until recently, when... Read Full Review

    gears with blades

    When Dark Sector was first introduced as an early PS3 game and had several development hells, it had a lot of hype. While the final release of Dark Sector has some fun moments, they start to where off after the first 3 ... Read Full Review

    I finally played this game.

    This game was sitting on my shelf for a few years now, and finally had the chance to play it, and it's not a bad game, just a very forgettable one and not particularly challenging either. The story is a little on the ... Read Full Review

    For me it's all about the Glaive

    In short, Dark Sector looks like Gears Of War, the same art direction, there's even a similar roadie-run. But that's where the comparison ends. Dark Sector for me was very fun, but the game didn't start out that way,it ... Read Full Review

    This is a fun GREAT game to play with gameplay mechanics very similar to Gears of Wars.

    So here I am again with another review of a game that probably nobody plays anymore but for 3.99 I couldn't pass on this one and I'm glad I did cause this game was really really fun to play with amazing graphics and game... Read Full Review

    Do yourself a favor and give it a try!

    As over the shoulder 3rd person shooters go this is one of the most fun ones I've ever played. The protagonist in this game is a blast to play as. Bad aspects first: 1. The story is crappy(ex special agent trying to sa... Read Full Review

    Cool weapons and plenty of gore largely compensate for Dark Sector's messy story and PC-exclusive glitches.

    There's nothing wrong with being a one-trick pony if your trick is good enough. With so many third-person cover shooters on the market these days, developer Digital Extremes wisely chose to set Dark Sector apart from... Read Full Review
