    Dark Sector manages to take an old style, bring new gameplay to it, but fails to do much more than that.

    Dark Sector

    Dark Sector manages to take an old style, bring new gameplay to it, but fails to do much more than that.

    Dark Sector is a game that manages to pluck a chord with fans of the Gears of War style third-person shooter with that familiar over-right-shoulder camera viewpoint. Unfortunately, being a clone often means that doing so... Read Full Review
