    Just amazing some of the best multiplayer ever. Once you start playing you won't go back to other games like halo.

    For starters this game is not meant for people looking for a good single player campaign it is strictly for multiplayer only. The single player is alright a few hours and it's over. There's instant ac...

    Lacking a solid storyline or position, this game manages to make up for it with a good solid to the core multi-player.

    This is not going to be a long or detailed review, because I am quite lazy, but I will try to manage to make it short and sweet. While i honestly did not get into the single player, due to the fact th...

    The game is over balanced and has many design issues flaws.

    Well call me crazy but I thought this game was going to be good, well until I played it that is. My first impressions were of disappointment of the wanting of a different style of game play for the si...

    SouthPeak games presents Section 8, a multiplayer experience that will drain hours from your life, but you won't mind.

    Rated on September 08, 2009 by x007wes

    Okay, I know what you're thinking… "Great, another generic Sci-Fi shooter, thanks but no thanks". I know because I thought the same thing when I came across the Section 8 demo on Xbox Live Marketpla...

    Epic multiplayer, weak single player, but that doesn't matter, it's still awesome.

    Rated on September 03, 2009 by Mizuki88

    This game has some seriously hardcore awesome multiplayer, the single player, not so much, but I'll get to that later. In the multiplayer you spawn not randomly, but you can freely choose where you ...

    Single player lacks focus, and I had no idea what it was all about.

    Rated on March 31, 2012 by lemmy2

    I was honestly really disappointed with this game. I thought it would something better than what it was. First off, you know they don't care about the single player when it's the third option scro...
