Mediocre game with poor controlstomatoketchup | April 29, 2013 | See all tomatoketchup's reviews »
Pros: price, the entire package with coupon + trade in was $5.00
Cons: Moving the character around feels like driving the mako in me1.
The port from console to PC was poorly done.
Very limited weapons, each NPC has a specialized weapon, while you get to upgrade their weapons you don't get to use it. You have 4 weapon slots, your main weapon and sidearm can't be dropped or swapped, a 3rd slot is for grenades. So at any given time you can only carry 1 specialty weapon, which you lose when you progress to the next stage.
Overdramatic camera shaking with every explosion does not add to the environment, it makes game play annoying.
The game is made out to be more of a movie than a fps. Numerous cut scenes are sprinkled through out the game and really cuts into the flow of game play.
Bottomline: Would I spend $5 to buy the entire binary domain package again? no.
A solid game with some flawsDaiMonPaul | March 23, 2013 | See all DaiMonPaul's reviews »
Binary Domain is a game that I'm torn on. I love the atmosphere of the game, and the story feels somewhat Blade Runner-ish. There's a lot to like here, but the game is far from perfect. If you can overlook its foibles, though, you can get a lot of enjoyment out of this somewhat unheralded game.
First, the good. The game plays like a standard third-person shooter with a cover system that should feel pretty familiar. It doesn't really add anything unique to this basic gameplay, but it all works well. The shooting elements feel really good, and the ability to shoot off various parts of your robot enemies is awesome. Being able to knock the legs off a robot, only to see it crawl after you, is something that never gets old. Likewise, the game gives you some choice, even if it is fairly linear overall. You can choose which members of your team accompany you on missions, you can level up team members and weapons, and you can favor one team member over another, which will result in your colleagues liking you or disliking you (and refusing to follow some of your orders).
Ultimately, though, all of these choices don't really impact the game all that much. It's nice to have different options, but the game still remains relatively linear.. Mass Effect, this is not. The game also includes voice commands as a selling point, but these don't always work very well. It's a solid idea, but it's just so much easier to turn them off and use the keyboard or controller to issue commands. And that leads into my final major complaint with the game -- it is a PC port from consoles, and this shows. It runs quite well and it looks good, but I found it to be difficult to play with a mouse and keyboard. The mouse sensitivity is set waaaay too high, and any config options have to be set outside the game in a separate config program. With a controller, the game works much, much better, and I'd highly recommend using one to play.
The game itself is probably an 85 or so. Why have I rated it lower? This is the "complete" pack, but it doesn't really add enough content to justify the extra cost. Very few people play multiplayer (which feels a bit tacked on to the game), and the multiplayer pack only adds one map and a few weapons. The Dan Marshall pack gives a few items and cheats for the main character, but it ultimately adds very little. These are nice to have, but the base game is cheaper and is all that you really need to have an enjoyable experience with a solid (if unoriginal) game set in a cool setting.
A good third person shooterXibalba | Feb. 27, 2013 | See all Xibalba's reviews »
Is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Sega. The game is set in Tokyo in the year 2080 and features innovative enemy AI technology. The player can issue commands to their squad mates either by using buttons or voice via headset A major part of the game is the Consequence System. Trust plays a part in the story mode on how the squad views the player. Their opinion of the player is based on how the player performs and treats team members. This affects both the storyline and the gameplay, where the characters behave differently depending on trust levels.Great and interesting story
Prices does not justify contentCoolicy | Feb. 12, 2013 | See all Coolicy's reviews »
Binary Domain is a great game. Brings quite a bit of innovation to the squad-based third person shooter and is quite fun. A little overlooked by audience IMO. The game itself is solid, and would deserve an 85 score IMO.
This review is scored as it is because of the way it is packaged. Minus points for calling it the complete package when it actually contains less value than the base game itself.
The multiplayer pack is totally pointless. There is Not A Single Soul playing. The Dan Marshall pack is nice, adds more to the base game. However, the game is fine without it... so this doesn't really justify the increased price over the base game.
You're better off waiting for a sale on the base game and save the excess on another game.

Binary Domain is essentially a third person shooter like Gears of War. The fact is, the game has a story, and it's an interesting one too. You can give orders to your teammate thanks to the headset, and it's very funny because you see a lot of different reaction. The game is never boring, there are a lot of different situations and also the graphic is very good. In my humble opinion, this Sega game is superior to all the Epic Games saga.
