Dark Void : The In-Depth review.
Hello all, I am Karl A.K.A Wimpiam and i will be here to guide you through the awesome universe of Dark Void... OK though seriously I am writing this review because many websites just aren't giving Dark Void enough credit. The game can easily be graded in seven different categories; Ground Combat, Ground Controls, Air Combat, Air Controls, Graphics, Voice Acting, and Music. Overall the games controls are pretty easy to master, A little touchy but easy with time. When taking off, the jet pack is a little hard to control and that is a good thing. (This adds to the player immersion in the game.) The air combat is that of an airplane combat simulator, but with a bit of a frantic jet pack-ey feeling to it. The ground combat heavily entails using the cover system, which by the way is top-notch. Air controls are very simple, the maneuvers can be challenging during combat and the speed is awesome. The graphics in this game are unimaginably cool whilst flying through the air, the light shines through the sky as you fly along and you can sometimes even get the feeling of the wind going through your hair. (This may just be me.) The Voice acting in this game was top notch, Will was very well voiced along with Ava and the rest of the characters in this game. The Soundtrack was one of my favorite things in the game, Bear McCreary did an absolutely wonderful job on the soundtrack, and it has this really cool feature that makes the music you hear always a little different. The jet pack is what really makes this game though, I guarantee that you will spend a lot of the time you play this game just flying and looking at the landscapes. Here is how I would rate the game's categories; Ground Combat-8, Ground Controls-8, Air Combat-7, Air Controls-7, Graphics-10, Voice Acting-9, and Music-10. (realistically that would be more around 1,000,000) Overall The game is definitely a good buy, It is an all around solid game, excellent graphics, super excellent music, and a developer that needs to be watched because they have great potential. As for the soundtrack alone... If they release it, I will buy it. (And I would suggest you do the same!) The above review cannot state the amount of effort and talent that has gone in to making this game. Some reviews have bashed the game on Flight physics and Flight controls, What these reviewers do not tell you is that much of what goes into a professional review is all based on enthusiasm. If you are not enthusiastic and go into a review with an open mind, all you will do is either rant, or rave about a game. I take pride in my reviews knowing that I do not bring any bias with me, thus making my reviews as effective and accurate as possible. As I have stated above, the game Dark Void Is an all around good game. Dark Void has little to no quarks and glitchy spots, and most of the negative things mentioned in reviews are out of proportion to the main idea. This is my personal opinion now, This game IS one of the best games I have ever played, and yet due to hype very few will discover it's excellence. I am asking you, Will YOU follow the trends of "popular" games or will you go on the beaten path and buy a game that is being released from an up and coming developer and prepare to have your "Socks Knocked Off" (hypothetical socks of course...) It has been a pleasure submitting an In-Depth game review, and a personal review of a good game! Hope you meet me in the void and purchase this wonderful game!
