Customer Reviews of Blacksite: Area 51
The screen gets redder the dead-er u get, but ducking for a while lets you get your wind back. And the checkpoints are frequent, so u restart not TOO far back from where u die (both features similar to CoD). A lot of reviews were luke-warm about the title, but this game is very good. In my opinion it is solid 5-star bang for your buck.

Blacksite is a pretty fun first person shooter. It recalls the Call of Duty games in style and method of play with a little squad-based tactics thrown in for fun. The plot is a little confused. But you have a variety of weapons--many old favs like sniper rifle and grenades as well as some futuristic weapons. Your squadmates get happy the more bad guys you kill and they get bummed if you get beat up or pinned down. And the baddies range from Iraqis to alien/monster things.
