Dark Sector was one of those video games (along with Killzone 2) that first made its debut at E3 2005, but was missing in action afterwards. This has all changed during the summer because some new details regarding the Dark Sector have been released. Dark Sector is a third person shooter for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
At first glance, Dark Sector seems to be in the same vein as Gears of War, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare, and Resident Evil 4. However, it is not a Gears of War, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare, or Resident Evil 4 game. Dark Sector has some similarities with Gears of War and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare; furthermore, they entail utilizing your environments and taking cover.
The protagonist in Dark Sector is Hayden Tenno (CIA agent with uncanny abilities). He will encounter a wide variety of adversaries from genetically altered fiends to humans. Fortunately, gamers have an ace up their sleeve with Hayden Tenno. You will have your usual assortment of weapons that are, but are not limited to handguns, shotguns, machine guns, and so on. From the Dark Sector gameplay footage, we can infer that players will have a boomerang-like weapon (ala Ninja Gaiden or Blade). The most unique weapon at your disposal has to be the boomerang due to its versatility. Dark Sector was scheduled for a 2007 release date, but has been delayed. The game developers are in an odd predicament with Dark Sector.
There are essentially in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” scenario which can equate to a lose-lose situation. Releasing the game in 2007 would be an arduous sell as games like Halo 3, Mass Effect, Call of Duty 4, and Assassin’s Creed will be available. A 2008 release date would leave Dark Sector competing against Grand Theft Auto 4, Too Human, and Metal Gear Solid 4. Regardless of a 2007 or 2008 release date, Dark Sector will be delving into some fierce competition. Dark Sector is slated to be on video games shelves in 2008.
