    Adventures in jetpack flying.

    IMMERSION: The USP (unique selling point) in Dark Void is a jetpack. This one thing influences a lot of the developer's other choices. The visuals are impressive, aliens look alien, environments are interesting to wander... Read Full Review

    Originally I bought this game because of the cheap price (8$), but I ended up really liking it more than I expected.

    When I first came to Gamepot's Dark Void page, I was surpised at the low score this game recieved from various sites. That being said, this was my first experience playing a third person shooter on Xbox 360, so I don't h... Read Full Review

    Unfair general score.

    Very funny gameplay. Immersive when jetpack is in use. Skydiving lovers gonna enjoy the free falls. Very beautiful tropical rainforests landscapes. The void entrance and the USS Cyclops parts are amazing. The platonic af... Read Full Review

    Despite popular opinion, Dark Void isn't really that bad of a game. But, it does have certain experience ruining flaws.

    Dark Void is an average sci-fi shooter at best. At first when playing through this game, I just couldn't understand why so many reviewers and other players gave this game such a hard time. However, I started think back t... Read Full Review

    Dark Void is a game that you'll play, beat, & forget that it ever existed.

    What happens when you combine Gears of War, Star Wars, and The Rocketeer? You get Dark Void. PROS: Flight Missions are FUN! Ground missions are playable. Soundtrack is awesome. CONS: Relatively Boring Story. Game ... Read Full Review

    Dark Void had potential, but it didn't act upon it.

    Picking up Dark Void was something that I've wanted to do for a while, so I finally did. Dark Void under no circumstances is a bad game, but simply one that is more of a missed opportunity. Dark Void does what a lot ... Read Full Review

    Something unusually addictive.

    Dark Void is a game that when I ask anyone about it, the first thing anyone says is 'It's about the worst game I've played'. When I finally decided to buy the game to see how bad it was, I was glad I brought it, especial... Read Full Review

    Underrated...

    Dark Void, when trying to come up with the feeling I got from this game they are quite mixed. I thoroughly enjoyed portions of this game and other portions I found myself looking around for someone to punch.. but in the... Read Full Review

    Awesome Averageness.

    I bought this game a few days ago and I have to say that I am impressed with it so far to tell you the truth. Before I begin, the game is flawed in quite a number of ways, but its the fact that the game tries to be soo a... Read Full Review
