I'm going to be honest with you here. I hadn't heard of this game until I was browsing through the newly released demos on my 360. *Also please take note: I haven't played the story mode of this game. Only the xbox live multiplayer. I will be basing this review heavily on the game play.*
Title: Section 8
Genre: Action, 1st person shooter
Platform: xbox 360,PC
This is a game that went fairly unnoticed by the general public and gamers alike.
The trailers made it seem just ok and there wasnt really a big name developer behind it to really get it a ton of attention. But, when I saw it was using the Unreal Engine I was sure it was going to be good.
Story This game really doesn't have much of a story at all. You play as a guy named Alex, tasked with literally jumping out of high speed jets onto the battlefield. The main story mostly just follows you in battles.
Game Play This is where the game earns most of its points. The game play is amazing. In the typical Xbox Live match, you start the game by selecting you drop point and then you are dropped from a ship. There is even a little sequence in where yous steer your little spaceman to a safe landing. Once you land, your introduced to a very typical team death match sort of thing. The combat is really fun and fast paced. You are on your toes the whole entire time. You have access to all of your spaceman powers including jet packs and super speed. You have a basic set of guns like Rifles, Pistols, and shotguns.
I honestly don't have a ton to say about this game because there really isnt much to it. It doesn't go past fun online play. Not a lot of depth. You really shouldnt pay $60 for this one. Get the demo, its free. I give this game a 3/5 Remember to check the Sidebar to see all of the games I've reviewed so far.
