Games With Gold April - The Barrel Scraping

It's a shame to see everyone dumping on Dark Void. Years since I played it and definitely a mixed bag, but the Jetpack movement is really cool when you get the hang of it - especially in slightly more confined areas. It's more or less The Rocketeer in game form. Exactly the sort of game that deserves a second look. So probably not much point putting it on games with gold.  

 

Edit: Dark sector was pretty good too. You basically got to fly the boomerang thing (glaive?). Apparently I just like gimmicky b-grade shooters of a certain age.

I'm up for giving Dark Void a go. I do remember the rocketeer comparisons in press releases of the time and it always piqued my interest.

 

I also have fond memories of playing the shonky B-tier games of the late 00's like Dark Sector. They weren't bad games, just very average, but I do miss them bizzarely.

Looking forward singularity and saboteur in May then...

 

seriously though, I liked Dark Sector. It had a better sinking ship level than whichever CODMW starts with one, and iirc it’s a pseudo-sequel to shooters Area 51 and Black Site.


Strictly average, but good average. It does abandoned Eastern European city well...

All I need to know about Dark Void can be answered with one question:

 

Are the controls better than FUCKING GUN VALKYRIE!?! Holy fuck there was a swing and a miss...
