BlackSite: Area 51
Well, with the demo being released on Xbox Live, it appears to be generating a lot of traffic on other forums. I wanted to get other 360 owners views on this game. I thought is looked fantastic! I also think it will end up being the sleeper FPS of the year. The physics and graphical touches are amazing. What do you think?
I'm definitely more interested in it than I was before after playing the demo. The only problem I saw which I'd assume will be fleshed out was when I jumped down into the sewage ravine the AI controlled characters got stuck and would not follow me down. They just ran in place.
Otherwise this has been put on my radar for sure. It's looking very nice!!!
Glad you brought this up. I had totally forgot about this game. I'd like to hear more on the plot and story line but other than that it does have allot going for it. First it is using the "Unreal 3 Engine" and second it's being developed by Midway which by the way is also doing none other than Unreal Tournament 3.
The other pros are the comand squad looks and sounds close to Rainbow Six but with a few extra commands. Of course the big deal is with MP with the normal Deathmatch (team & single), capture the flag and pit humans vs. reborns. It also will have the important co-op play to boot. The web site is pretty cool and has some nice details.
The Demo is alright. I didn't like the way the shooting was handled but this is a common FPS issue with me. Some games like GOW and RS:Vegas do a good job of making the gun feel like they're really doing something. I mean you really feel the gunfire. Other FPS's handle the guns and shooting like you're using a spitball shooter. It's hard for me to explain so I hope some of you get what I mean.
Also, I know I'm in the minority here but I really wish FPS's would allow a 3rd person view option. I guess that changes the point of FPS's but I like the wider view given by 3rd person viewing.

So is this a follow up to the Area 51 game awhile ago, or something new?

Yea...my copy went bye-bye almost a year ago. Not a bad game at all but toward the last part I encountered issues and bugs. Decent storyline and look to....had fun with it and for under $22.00 worth it.
