Black

Anyone else play it? I picked it up last night (only played one mission) and wow, game seems to be pretty well done! Some of the nicest looking graphics in a FPS I've seen on the playstation 2 as well.

I havent played it much, but so far I'm liking it a lot. Anyone else have experience with this game? if so how did you like it? How did you think it compares too other FPS on the Playstation 2 ?
 
..I thought this was going to be a spam racist thread ^^;;;;

Although, I shall go run and pick it up sometime soon and review it. What is it? <<; story based
 
First Person Shooter.

Its not too bad of a game, although I'm quite a hardcore FPS shoot, it did get kinda boring for me. I don't know what it was... The game was too much of an "one man army" thing for my tastes. It isn't too hard (upset for this one spot, where you have to fight a ton of enemies at once, with no cover and some RPGs coming for you in the same time), but it just gets weird after awhile, enemies taking 5 or 6 headshots to get a kill, with an ak47 =/. I dunno its just me, but it got annoying. IMO if I were to give it a score, it would be around... 7/10. Worth the rental :).

This needs to be on the Next-Gens. It's bloody beautiful on the Xbox (The Xbox has more power than the PS2, shut up) but it's still a straight Run&Gun.

A damn good rental game or bargain-binnie but I wouldn't pay too much for it.

it was $29.99 on the x box at target :O $12.99 clearance for ps2 "greatest hits" version.

Honestly, I'm not sure which one looks better. this is some of the best I've ever seen the PS2 have, I also thought that killzone was pretty well done too (though not as fun too play)

X box has power, but I really like the layout of the playstation controllers for first person shooter.

You should really check the update list on the backwards compatible list often. It's been backwards compatible for, I think, 6 months now.

I don't have a 360. I meant it should be totally re-made with the power of the 360/PS3.
 
Black was a pretty awesome game, with some of the best graphics I've seen on regular xbox. The game is damn fun if a bit unrealistic at times (wow, those russians just soak up bullets....must be the vodka) but overall a good game. Awesome explosions in it too!

BLACK was a good enough game. Story was horrible, the cutscenes were paint to watch, couldn´t bother to pay attention (i just wanted to skip them all)...and i had no idea what was going on even when i had finished the game...i quess you were supposed to locate someone and kill him or something...

Graphics looked awesome for a ps2 game, i was impressed. Explosions were nicely done and the enviroment looked good enough.

Gameplay was good, but i wish the game would be available on PC, FPS games on console controllers are sometimes pain in the butt, especially on hectic scenes....and the fact that enemies can take a crapload of damage doesn´t help at all.

Overall, it looks good and plays okay, i liked it. I´d give it 6-7/10

I thought it was very boring and contrived, although I can't deny that it looked nice. IIRC, it was running on the same Renderware tech the Burnout games used.

Well it was just the basic FPS with great sound and graphics. Lucky it was short.

IMHO, never ever EVER should an FPS game not have a "jump" function of some sort. This game does not have said function.

FAIL.
yeah that was the first thing that I said when I picked it up. That alone irritated the living snot out of me. But for some reason, I had to finish playing it anyway. The physics of the game, minus said inability to jump, were phenomenal. Every once in a while I get in the mood for a game where I can just go and blow every damn thing in sight to pieces, which Black did very well. Kudos for that.
On the downside, I watched every little cutscene, being the story-whore that I am, and by the time the credits were rolling, I still didn't have the damnedest idea what in hell was going on, aside from that there were a whole lot of bloody corpses behind me and my gun barrels were still smoking.
Replay value was... bleh. Whoo-hoo, more guns. I got part way in replaying, and gave up.

Summary:
needs jump
needs better story
needs multiplayer

take notes, game designers.

Flashpoint doesn't have a Jump (But then again, it is a MilSim). There's no need for a Jump function if theirs nothing to jump.

As I understood the story, Main character attacks a terrorist building and gets captured by a terrorist.
The terrorist is a CIA guy and is the leader of the terrorists.
The main character gets another mission to blow up something (Weapons I think).
The main character gets another mission against the terrorist group.
He tortures a terrorist Lieutenant guy for info on the CIA guy.
The main character bounces to another mission against the terrorist group but it's a trap. Alpha team dies.
Main character goes after CIA guy against orders with two other people.
Main character raids his Stronghold.

The whole playable part of the game is a flashback with the cut scenes being the Present and an interrogation of the Main character about what he did.
In the end, they know CIA guy was a terrorist, the Main character thinks he killed the CIA guy but he didn't, Main character did as they thought he would and they let him off the hook to continue hunting CIA guy opening up for a sequel.

The game never was meant to be about a great, awesome, solid, in-depth story.
It was meant to be a Purty lookin', action soaked shooter.

Shotgun silencer
Lol what about it?
Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a silenced shotgun. But not a combat shotgun lol. They're specially made, the entire barrel is basically silencer. They're rare, hideously expensive, and not very quiet, but they do exist.

The HK CAWS is cooler. It was a 10-round full-auto shotgun.
 
AA-12: 20-round auto-shotgun, very low recoil, can fire freaking grenades. It has a firing rate of some 800 rounds per minute. Thats just damn impressive.

You know, I've noticed the US wastes a lot of money on weapon prototypes but never really gets that far (The only reason the OCIW program didn't totally fail was all the spinoffs that came from it).

Black was good, if generic. The PS2 version was disappointing, with absolutely no multiplayer capability. Considering it pushed the old box to the limits, I'm not surprised, though. Not terrible, but...there really are better FPSes out there.

Then again, I don't like the PS2's controller for FPSes anyway.
