What Gamespot Users have to say about Dark Sector

  • User Rating 7.5

    Strong start, but the lack of story progression and bugged controllers almost sank this ship.

    Dark Sector can be fun, challenging, and unique, but It has several other qualities that hold it back from greatness.

    Dark Sector is what you get when Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War have a child that isn't quite as good as either.

    Rated on March 30, 2008 by raven28256

    So after about four years and a total revamp of the concept, Dark Sector finally comes out, with mixed results. Dark Sector follows a CIA black-ops agent named Hayden Tenno sent to a fictional former ...

    When I first played this game, the black-and-white opening tutorial introduces us to Hayden Tenno, a man who can't handle his line of work for much longer. Not having much choice, he continues his ope...

    Rated on March 31, 2008 by flavort

    As for this game being something you will want to add to your collection, I say no. As for a game you should play, yes. The reviews make sense to me now. The hard part about this game is that it has h...

    Dark sector is good but fails to deliver responsive melee combat.

    Rated on March 31, 2008 by pigmanthegreat

    I would say just about everything besides the melee combat in this game is good. but the melee is so terrible that it's just discraceful for a next-gen game. The graphics are superb, the glaive can be...
