Game description

"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

Dark Sector thrusts players into the role of Hayden Tenno, a covert operative sent on a dangerous mission into Lasria, an Eastern European city on the brink of ruin that hides a deadly Cold War secret. In the midst of this mission, Hayden is attacked by an unknown enemy and infected by the Technocyte Virus, a brutal bio-weapon that twists its victims into mindless killing machines. Surviving this attack, Hayden finds that the Technocyte virus has granted him powerful, inhuman abilities unlike anything he has ever seen. Now, he must evolve with his powers, survive and become a hero.

One of my favorite games!


This game is very unique compared to other third person shooters. The glaive is so sick and I wish they would make another dark sector. The environments are sweet and it was so cool to see the design of dark sector being used for the devs current game - Warframe. The finisher moves are sweet and the ability to control the glaive is so satisfying - especially when you get a "headshot". The story is nothing memorable, shooting is average and the graphics nowadays look dated. The game feels like a well made budget game. I do recommend picking this up!

Dark Sector


A unique take on the classic FPS! The thing that makes this game stick out of a large crowd of FPS's is the creative integrated weapon that is part of your character. While you can use traditional guns and such to fight the enemy, you'll find yourself almost relying completely on the dark glaive that is part of your character's arm. This unique weapon allows you to throw it at your enemies, and then you can control it via a first-person view. It can be set on fire, electrified and charged to help take down even the toughest of enemies. Taking out a group of enemies from around a corner is a lot of fun. Even though this is not a AAA product, it still gives you great graphics, and well-done controls. This game will keep your interest until the very end.

Great Game That Was A Bit Underrated


This game was almost under everyone's radar and it's an incredible game. The gameplay is great and fun to play around with how you do things. I think the ideas in this game are great and they did a great way of bringing those ideas out and into life. The story is incredible and loads of fun to play through. This game is a ton of fun. I would completely recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit different with some cool ideas and a fantastic story. Maybe explore as well in the game? It's great!

Hidden gem.


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.

Fun game


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!.
