What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Superb audio/visual presentation, decent story

The Bad: Paper thin content, six hours isn't very long, lackluster multiplayer

First and foremost, this game has NOTHING to do with the Area 51 for PC, Xbox, and PS2 that came out four years ago even though it's made by the same people. BlackSite uses the Unreal 3 engine and does a pretty damn good job with it. Everything looks superb and fantastic and you'll be visually pleased the whole way. The downside to this is there is massive slowdown during large firefights which can really bite. The game has you playing Cpt. Pierce who is an Army Marine trying to fight off an invasion of infected government experiments.
                    Through the game you have only four maybe five weapons, a couple vehicle segments (think Gears of War), and a couple of helicopter/turret segments...that's it. While the game isn't boring thanks to it's six hour length, the content is paper thin. The story is rushed and it feels like the developers just rushed this game out way too early. The online multiplayer isn't very fun thanks to the few weapons you have. There are also only maybe six different enemy types through the whole game as well. This game is a great weekend rental but not worth the $60 purchase.
