Be prepared for it to get harderBy GuidoHUK (33 reviews) from Oxford , 27 Jun 2010If you like shooters you will like this.
I wasn't sure about the story; it seemed a bit of an irrelevance that took up time with 'actory' scenes between the action.
One thing that I found frustrating was the long periods between checkpoints and, even after a checkpoint you couldn't leave the game and continue from that checkpoint. This wouldn't have been so bad if there was an option to manually save the game at any given point. This meant that you had to have time to get through a whole action scene and some of them were quite long (for me anyway!).
I played some games where, although the challenge has become harder, as long as you have basic tactics and just shoot, you will get through. Not with Black - for me at least, it got harder and harder and harder again. This, of course is fine, but, with no ability to save at a given point, one has to have the time to see a scene through. This, I must say, I found very frustrating as I don't often have 3-4 hours straight to play the game.
That aside, the game has a good range of weapons, some formidable foes and some interesting situations to conquer. If you like out and out shooters that challenge your perseverance, then Black is for you.
