"Dark Sector's fun. Hearing guards scream for help just before they take a glaive to the face, marching around in this Metal Gear-looking Jackal tank while rocketing bad guys into the air and wielding a pimped-out shotgun make the experience something any action fan can get behind." - IGN.com

I'm sure that not many people played this game, even among fans of "hidden" gems. What is so great in Dark Sector? First of all the dark aura - it's just amazing. It build game well. Next one are amazing weapon and skills. "Boss" fights are also great and graphics - simply amazing. Sounds amazing, but there are also bad sides of this game: it's way too short and too simply. You can feel a little bored after playing it too long but in shorter sittings - it's great. Why would I call Dark Sector a hidden gem? Because it's unexpected fun and well made. Sure, it's not best game ever made but I'm sure once you will give it a try you will be surprised how good this game is.

Dark Sector is a interesting game. The controls are good, has support for xbox 360 controller too. Story and sound is ok, nothing special. The game has nice graphics but the mechanics is your strong point. The combination with guns, powers and glaive worked very well. Its very fun use your glaive to cut in half or beheaded their opponents. The guns can be upgraded,the glaive has a good interaction with scenario, you can soot the glave in the fire or ice and use against your opponents. Although short, the game has a good challenge principally on hard mode. It's worth buying on sale!.

The glaive concept is just awesome. You can put fire, ice, electricity in it, which is needed in most situations/enemies. You can also control the Glaive path at some point in the game! The story is ok. Not that elaborated, but enough to keep you playing.
If you like Third-person shooters, with mixed terror, nice big monsters and putting enemies on fire, give it a try.
A console port that while good, is also bad.BlockAgent | June 11, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Dark Sector is a game that is brutally unforgiving from the very start. Within the first 10 minutes of playing it, you will fight a boss, swarms of 20 bad guys all raining down gunfire on you at one, and seemingly endless hordes of monsters spawning very close all around you. I found it to be very difficult. The human bad guys are the usual whack-a-mole type though. To make it even harder, the controls are terrible. You character doesn't always do what you are telling him to with your fingers. Sometimes he will flip out from behind cover into a thousand bullets. Things such as switching between weapons become an unnecessary challenge. During my playing of the game, no matter what screen resolution I set the game to, I could never get the game image to fit my normal 1080p screen. It cuts off the outer edge which cuts off your ammo count display etc. The plot in Dark Sector is very thin. Alot of the time you are just going through the very linear levels killing bad guy after bad guy not sure of why they are attacking you, what is your end objective, etc.
So now for the good. The graphics are pretty good, considering the game came out for consoles in 2010, and the theme of the game has a unique twist on it. Having the bladed glaive is a nice fresh feature, but in my opinion is oversold in the game's trailer. I ended up using the guns more as they felt more effective against enemies and were plentiful.
So the game is good for a few reasons, but bad for other reasons, hence the score of 64/100.

While the game leaves a lot to be desired, it's premise is very strong: You're a dude. With a glaive. Who throws it at things.
Blitz your way through an almost post-apocalyptic, radioactive horror show, throwing your glaive to and fro. Throw it through environmental hazards. Throw it through enemies. Throw it through everything that gets in your line of sight. It'll zap, it'll burst with flame, it'll burst with blood. It'll be pretty cool.
The most important, and probably most overlooked aspect of this game is its multiplayer. If you get a chance to give this a whirl with friends (pun very much intended), you'll certainly not regret it.
