Hmm, That looks EXACTLY like S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Except shooting People instead of other stuff of the sort...


Just another game like S.W.A.T., Only for the ones that just want to go and shoot, Doubt there will be ANY, If at all a story line in the game.

Gun porn is good tho.
It gives me something to frag off to


Seriosuly tho.
There arent as many good quality with good quality image FPS as I would like.
I dont care if it doesnt have a story.
I just want my damn gun violence and I want it to be fun.
LoL
I mean I didnt even pay attention to the story from FEAR>
But I still loved the game.

Their PS2 development party must be fabulous. To be able to recreate such graphcis on current-generation software just shows how much you're able to do with little power.

But Black can't just be eye candy, it needs to have good gameplay, also.

Black is a preety poor game, i recently played the demo and the only accurate gun is the pistol and it takes an entire mag to bring down enemys lol but i have to admit the guns look good when firing lol

I like the destructible environment. And it sounds pretty cool, too. Most games I've played lack in the sound area, not enough sound to make it realistic. Too bad it's not for the PC, though.

Again.. this game is another perfect example of EA.

They create another game with flashy graphics to lead the lemmings into handing over their money, only for the lemmings to discover the game has horrible level design, no plot, horrible AI and gets boring in 20 minutes.

Black was supposed to be gun porn but almost all of the guns were inaccurately portrayed in some way with completely random magazine sizes and weird functions that they don't really posses. I rented it for Xbox and played it through to the third level because I was determined to give the game a fair shake. Really it is a bad game the only thing it has going for it is pretty good graphics and seriously if that is all you care about then buy FEAR or Half-Life 2.

So Malaziel you're saying it sucks
I was really holding out high hopes for this game since I absolutely LOVE guns, too bad they seem to have dropped the ball though. Seriously, if you make me a game with stunning graphics and 5.1 surround sound and put faithful reproductions of a couple hundred of the world's top guns in there I dont think I would ever come out of my room with the Xbox in it, if it was for PC then you are truly a god in my book LOL! That's how obsessed I am with guns, you dont even have to make a level, just a blank white room and the guns to play with. I'm serious.

Malazeil is correct, the game just plain sucks...and I'm the kind of person who generally likes crappy games.

Guns are extremely un-realistic.....this game makes CS look like the US army.

Graphics arn't that great......everything looks sand-blasted. Enemys are VERY unresponsive. This is the kind of AI you would expect from the original Soldier of Fortune.
Also there is no blood what so ever, but it has an 'M' rating. WTH???

Even if it becomes a "polished port", it won't be worth the retail price at all.....

You guys were wrong, I really like this game. I rented it and the graphics and sound are astonishing for the original Xbox, would have rocked for PC (with a multiplayer of course) I was playing it on easy to test it out and the AI is truly ******ed but for some reason takes 10 hits to kill with an AK! LOL! And you were right about the weird ammo counts, what kind of AK holds 60 rounds?

Well I hate that game the AI is so freaking stupid. Remonster really you don't need to run that game on easy it is still easy on hard. Yeah I agree that it has good graphics for an original Xbox game but they don't even compare to PC games. I totally agree with you about the description of a gun simulator. I love guns. Have you checked out and of the Strayer Voight custom pistols they are really freaking sweet. My favorite guns are the Strayer Voight Infinity Stock Modified and the SIG 550 urban counterterrorism sniper variant.

I just chose easy without really thinking about it, one thing I hate about this game is the stupid cut scenes with the crappy live action actors they are so lame and you can't even skip them. And what was with making me sit through the entire credits the first time I fired up the game? lmao.

And I totally agree, when a developer has to resort to giving their AI enough health to take 7-10 shots to the face without dying, you know their AI is bad lol.
