Default Area 51 demo

McClick

Edit: Finished playing it. Nothing special for me. The bloom lighting is nice, but its been done. The rest of the game looks a few years old. The huge file size is probably from the FMVs. The only things I liked were the pistol and the beefy melee attacks. The little screen on the scanner was nifty too.

I saw that, but the game sounded a bit tacky.

Area 51 is an arcade game with guns. Not this crap.

I'll say that when I heard they were making a new one, I was very dissapointed that it didn't carry the same style of game over. I say they should have done what House of the Dead 3 did. They could have remade the original, put it on Xbox and make it lightgun compatible.

Although, this does seem to be a pretty quality game on it's own... however, they had better have put the original Area 51 in there as a secret...

I got this for Xbox. I'm telling you, it's very damn good. It's funner than Halo2, that's for sure. Blasting all these mutant alien creatures and stuff never gets old. The weapons you've got are all standard FPSers, but to mix it up it's got a plasma rifle that shoots 3round bursts with a laser sight that enables you to bounce the rounds off surfaces to hit enemies. It's also got a BFG-like weapon that's a whole lot cooler than the Doom3 BFG. I'm playing the game the 2nd time through now. Great for conspiracy theorists, awesome for FPS fans.

Trust me, if you liked Halo you love this even better.

Yeah, i was disappointed that it isnt the arcade shooter, but I saw some screens and video, and it looked pretty cool. If this is any good, I'll grab it for my 'box.

Ok, played through the demo a couple times... and wow, I must say it is fun. Looks to have a very interesting story (which the demo doesn't really give anything away of), and they even poked fun by throwing in a movie set of our 'fake' landing on the moon

I would definately buy it, the game has great feedback to your shooting (and killing) and creates a satisfying experience

Seems to be decent, I'll grab it for my xbox when it drops down in price. Weapons are very cool, that...BBG? gun..thing is awesome. Alt fire gives you a green beam that bends around coners, and bounces off walls and such. The ammo on it seems to recharge, too, which is always nice. Dual SMG's and Sawed off Shutguns, plus a rifle, sniper rifle, and double barrel shotgun. Demop had me stumbling around shooting at random things until I found the guy had a keypad on his arm that does stuff.

Where do you get the db shotgun? There aint one of those in the game. I think Serious Sam is blinding you to the truth.



And the keypad? That thing scans items shown with a yellow or green semi square. You can earn secrets by finding all these top secret folders and PADs.

Ah yes, the so called 'double barrel shotgun'. On XBox you fire it with the left trigger. I found no use for it, other than to scare the shit out of me when I accidently pulled the trigger.

4 shells? How about 2. Don't get too excited Viper.

Does it not do secondary fire on both when duel weilding? I actually never looked at the ammo counter, I just figured that when holding 2 shotguns, pressing secondary fire, and then hearing a loud freaking boom followed by a very slow and dramatic reload animation, that meant something powerful

Exactly. When both shotguns go off at the same time, that boom occurs and the counter drops two shells. That's your secondary fire.

Lame! I thought he was secondary firing both (2 shells each)... oh well, still awesome I need to buy this game now.
