Jetpacks and aerial combat.
Solid gameplay mechanics.
Vertical cover system is an interesting idea.
Flying around the Void is cool.
Jetpack is speedy and maneuverable.
Great opportunities for daring stunts.
Successfully combines genres.
Flying controls are bad.
Graphics are unpolished; boring story.
Too generic to stand out from the crowd.
Too much time spent without a jetpack.
Shooting is unexciting.
Enemies are repetitive.
Takes a while to get going.

Overall, Dark Void is a disappointing game that had some interesting ideas but ultimately failed to execute them. It tries to break away from normal conventions, introducing flight into a large part of the game but the aerial combat is just too...-

Overall the game starts out very strong as you are introduced to the premise, its characters, and its unique gameplay hooks; however it isnt long before the shine wears off, and youre left with a mediocre game at its core. It has a lot going...60

Dark Void is all over the place. The story’s never explained adequately, the combat’s pretty much always a chore, and flying isn’t nearly as fun as it should be. I don’t hate Dark Void, but I don’t care for it, either. This...50

When Capcom publishes a game, there are very few people who don't know about it, but it has to be said that Dark Void's marketing and hype has been somewhat minimal. Sure, quite a few people know about it, but barely anybody seems to care,...35
