I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

could use more work!!!!!!
The Burnout series introduced to the world the meaning of "huge intense car crash races" and the company who made it, Criterion became very popular and made a few sequels. Now Criterion is attempting to introduce to the world a new meaning of "fps games" And they did it with Black. Its got some great graphics and sound, but needs to work on the gameplay, a.i and level designs

Black, called "gun porn" by many game critics, is all about guns and huge explosions. You start of in a room being interrogated by a government agent and you find out your names Keller and you also find out that you were following a terroist group called Seventh Way or someting. The whole game is told in flashblack. You start of in a city or somesort and get a hand of the game. The first three levels are really fun! But then when it comes to the fifth to the final eighth level, the game loses its touch and gets boring, fast.

Problems in this game are.......

1. Idiotic A.I. I mean in one level, i blew up a fuel tank and killed two guys, then when i continued the mission, none of the other baddies even noticed. Thats really horrible. You cant play a game like that.

2. Short levels. On normal level, you most likely finish a mission in 40 to 50 mins. (except the first level, which took me only 5 mins.

3. No multiplayer. For a game like this, you should expect multiplayer, but there isnt. Very disappointing huh?

Its the graphics and sound thats the best. The sound effects are put to the most detailed touches, from ammo cocking or bullets being shot along with some amazing background music. The graphics are also put to the very last details. With amazing looking environments and explosions.

So unless youre a huge fan of fps games or a fan of Criterions Burnout series, you might wanna steer away from this one. I think that Black couldve been a lot better if Criterion had put more work into it.
