About Dark Void

Dark Void is a sci-fi action-adventure game that combines an adrenaline-fuelled blend of aerial and ground-pounding combat. Set in a parallel universe called "The Void," players take on the role of Will, a pilot dropped into incredible circumstances within the mysterious Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself swept into a desperate struggle for survival, joining forces with a rebel human group called The Survivors. Trapped in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth.

Summary

Dark Void had some great concepts, but ultimately they were never realized. Flying is entertaining enough, but the rest of the game is repetitive and mediocre at best.

We like

  • Utilizing the jetpack to fly
  • The wonderfully exciting soundtrack

We dislike

  • The enormous audio and visual glitches
  • The repetitive and boring missions
  • The lack of originality; Dark Void plays like any other third person shooter

But a strong concept doe...
