Dark Void combines aerial and on-foot combat with the a strong emphasis on vertical gameplay,The story of Dark Void revolves around a cargo pilot called William Augustus Grey, Will to you of course! While on routine air cargo flight Will, along with his female friend (original eh?!), crash somewhere within the Bermuda triangle. The crash somehow leads to them mysteriously being teleported into a parallel universe known as “The Void”.
After the unexpected arrival on “The Void” our Hero soon encounters some alien beings known as “The Watchers”. Will, of course, has no idea what is going on and goes on the hunt for information. Eventually he comes across some humans known as “Survivors”. The leader of these humans reveals that “The Watchers” came from a far away place with their main goal to make humans do their bidding and treat them as Gods. Eventually though, people known as Adepts emerged and banished the Watchers to this parallel realm, “The Void”. If Will, along with his female friend, want to return to Earth then they must join the “Survivors” in battle and defeat “The Watchers”.: We all know that graphics are not the quintessential aspect of a game, ultimately the gameplay is what will make or break a title. It is shame then that, despite having some interesting ideas, the gameplay within Dark Void is distinctly average.
In terms of graphics, Dark Void is actually one of the worst games I have come across during this generation of consoles. The only time the game manages to make look decent is when you are flying around the world of Dark Void. This is mainly because during these sections you are moving around at high speeds so you don’t really have time to take in your surroundingsThings get slightly better with the audio side of things but not too much.
The music is generally done very well and suits the action on-screen wellDespite some nice ideas, no single aspect of Dark Void stands out at all.
The gameplay, story, sound and visuals are all soaked in immense mediocrity. Instantly forgettable and distinctly average. The title of the game is quite apt, a Dark Void is most certainly where this game is destined to be.
