Black

Does anyone have this game?

I do and it's a really fun game. I've only gotten to the 4th mission and so far my favorite weapon is the AK-47 because you can find so much ammo for it. (however, what kind of AK-47 ejects empty casings from the wrong side and pack 60 shots in one clip?)

The explosions and the way the bullets effect the surfaces they hit in this game is pretty cool looking. It gives the game a sort of exaggerated-action-movie type attitude.

I've never played it, but my friend has told me alll about the time he was near a silo, and found a rocket launcher, and jumped up and down with glee after blowing it up with said rocket launcher.

The bullet hole and dust cloud effects in this game are so cool. Whenever I have plenty of ammo and I find an empty room I just destroy every object in the room and put bullets in all the walls just for fun. Big Grin

The movement, sound effects and reloading operations are very accurate representations of the real things, leading the developer to label the game as (tongue-in-cheek) "Gun-Porn".

You know, I really hope this gets ported to PC.

I beat it in 6 hours. Also, it will never come to the PC.

Was it worth it? Im thinking about buying it myself, but have heard that its awfully short...

Is it all out fun though?

Not really. It gets old after about an hour. You're better off buying MGS3: Subsistence.

Most generic game I've ever seen.

There's not much else to say...

... now I feel like a jerk.

That's pretty much on the ball. It took them less than a year to churn it out, and they just built it around a concept that got boring after a while. Everything else was pretty much kind of useless.

It really wasn't meant to be that long in the first place. It only lasts about 7 hours.

The determining factor in whether you should buy it or not really depends on wether you like playing levels over and over. I'm probably going to replay this game several times because I like it a lot. If your the kind of person who just plays through a game once then you probably shouldn't buy Black. I think everyone should at least rent this game.

As to whether or not it's fun, it really depends. If you like shooting things and blowing stuff up then you'll enjoy this game because Black is REALLY good at that. If you prefer gameplay with more depth then Black might be boring to you.

I've heard a lot of stuff about this so-called "Black" game. I always enjoy a good bout of blasting, and this one seems to provide. Next I get some loose change piled together I'll see about giving it a rental.
It'll give me a chance to actually use my Xbox for something other than stabilizing the foundation of my house.
