Dark Void is third person action shooter with a few twists on the standard cover and combat mechanics you see in similar games. You play as Will Grey an aircraft pilot that is lost in the ‘void’ when flying through the Bermuda Triangle with...

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...

Capcom's much anticipated foot-and-air hybrid finally released on January 19th, developed by Airtight Games on the Unreal Engine 3. Airtight has created a mix of on the ground first-person action with aerial thrid-person flight and combat, Dark...

A few levels down the line you’ll get possession of a jet pack, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood inventor helping the revolution (but of course). Initially you’ll only be able to hover around using this jet pack but soon you’ll...

Jetpacks and lost alien civilizations collide with humanity facing World War II in Dark Void; rare is it that gamers catch such epics in the video gaming realm. The game presents a science fiction story dating back to the origin of humankind. A battle...

Overall the game starts out very strong as you are introduced to the premise, its characters, and its unique gameplay hooks; however it isn’t long before the shine wears off, and you’re left with a mediocre game at its core. It has a lot going...

Zooming around with your jetpack can be a lot of fun, but routine shooter action and long flightless sections keep Dark Void from flying...

Important Note on Gamepad Support: Conventional PC-specific gamepads may not work properly with this game; I found it basically unplayable on a Logitech RumblePad 2. A call to Capcom’s technical support yielded a comment that they had only tested...

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...

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,...

Groan, groan, groan to the high heavens. Is this truly all we have to look forward to for the next 10 billion years? Do we just have to watch some guy who looks pretty much the same in every single game trudging about scenery rendered in Unreal...

To set the premise for Dark Void, Airtight Games has taken people, locations and events from history and given those a spin. The location is the ominous Bermuda Triangle, the event is the rise of Fascism in Europe and the personality out of the...

A demo for Capcom’s newest 3rd-person adventure, Dark Void, has finally made its way to the PC. The demo released on consoles earlier this month, but PC gamers have only just been given the chance to try it out. If you wanna give the game a test...

If you're a fan of comics, or of retro culture in general, you may remember "The Rocketeer," the Dave Stevens series of the 1980s -- or the 1991 movie that was adapted from it. For those who don't, it was a story set in the late 1930s that...

Last week Overclock3D was privileged enough to be the sole PC gaming website to be invited by Capcom Europe to their headquarters in Hammersmith for a sneak hands-on preview of Airtight Games' Dark Void. So it was that on a wintry Tuesday the...

International Review By Digital Life on 50

Året är 1938 och världen är sådär matinémysig som det var innan kriget bröt ut. Will är helyllekillen i brun läderjacka och lättsam attityd, han vi känner igen från mängder av spel...

International Review By GamerLobby on 76

Vincent Dark Void ist ein solider 3rd Person Shooter für zwischendurch, der seine Schwächen hat. Die veraltete Grafik, die teils komplexe Steuerung und die schlechte künstliche Intelligenz sind nervig, aber nicht haarsträubend. Das...
