Über das Spiel

Im Jahr 2080 erhalten Dan Marshall, ein Mitglied der internationalen Friedensgruppe R.U.S.T, und sein Squad den Auftrag die Roboter in Tokio unter Kontrolle zu bringen. Dort werden von Unbekannten illegale Roboter hergestellt - die sogenannten „Seelenlosen“. Da die Grenze zwischen Mensch und Maschine immer stärker verschwimmt, sehen diese Roboter nicht nur wie Menschen aus, sondern handeln auch so und halten sich sogar für Menschen. Doch ihre emotionale Instabilität kann innerhalb von Sekunden tödlich werden.

Nur die R.U.S.T-Crew kann die Roboter daran hindern, die menschliche Gesellschaft weiter zu unterwandern und die Menschheit vor der Auslöschung bewahren.

Actiongeladene Begegnungen mit hochintelligenten Robotern erfordern taktisches Geschick, schwierige moralische Entscheidungen in Echtzeit und Vertrauensaufbau im Team. Nur so können Sie Ihre Teammitglieder am Leben erhalten und zum Erfolg führen.

Gute Story und satte Kämpfe. Dämlich aber unterhaltsamer Humor. Liebenswerte Charaktere.
Binary Domain bietet ein tolles 10h Unterhaltungspaket.
Die Entscheidung wen man sich auf seine Einsätze mitnimmt hat mich an Mass Effect erinnert.
Außerdem kann man in keinem anderen Spiel Roboter so schön in Fetzen schießen.

Last night i have finished the game again for the third time.
i remember when i was a kid and played the pirated version , i installed the game , went in , finished it and then took a minute to see how well it was , how awsome it was.
the story is truly amazing , at first there is a little bit control issues but then u will get a hang of it.
they dont make gems like this anymore.
it was awsome. i love it.

WoW man! This game does have a good story and some twist in story. There are various boss fight in the game. Every boss is different from the others. Has unique characteristics. Bought the game on sale. Didn't expect so much. But I have to say, it served me beyond my expectations.

ABOUT THE GAME- You play as Dan of 'rust crew', an international group of highly skilled soldiers who are tasked with maintaining world peace in an age where countries start mass producing robots. This game is a third-person shooter with a combat cover system as in Gears of War. The game is set in futuristic Japan, where you lead a squad, to put an end to an evil corporation that mass produces humanoid robots with superior DNA, aimed to replace humans in the long run.

STORY- Though the theme might seem somewhat similar to the movie I-Robot, it must be said that this game is not that straightforward or blunt rather it offers greater depth and invokes thought after you finish the game. In short, the storyline is quite good.

GRAPHICS- Nothing extraordinary here, pretty decent graphics. The robots, bosses, environments, NPCs all look neat.

GAMEPLAY- From start to finish you will be doing one thing- Killing robots. It is hugely satisfying shooting robots as opposed to other foes, as you really feel the damage you inflict on them, especially when you see and hear metal being stripped and blown apart from their bodies. And then you have the occassional boss fight which are good too. Controlling your squad, building trust with squadmates, shopping weapon upgrades for the whole team and surprisingly the humour in the dialogues, all work quite well and makes for an enjoyable experience.

SOUND- The sound of metal getting blown off, character voices, weapon sounds etc are all good. The voice commands in-game using a mic (not mandatory) is busted up and this feature may best be ignored, to prevent frustration.

VERDICT- Good story, Likeable characters, Humour, Satisying combat, Under 20 hours.

[h1]MY SCORE: 80/100[/h1]

[h1] Entertaining third person shooter with good gameplay and an excellent plot [/h1]

Very underrated SEGA game. Also if you have ever played the Yakuza games before, then it's noteworthy that this game was developed by the same team. Playing through it, a lot of nuance and humor will remind you of the Yakuza games.

Highly recommended ????

Fun game. Similar playing style to Gears of War. It has a mic feature that didn't work well, however once it was turned off I really enjoyed the game. If you like third person shooters like Gears of War or Kill Switch, then you should enjoy this game.

This was released in the same year as: Borderlands 2, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and Halo 4.

It feels like a 2005 - that said, it's good nonetheless and if you don't mind something that feels a bit dated then you're good to go. Don't pay full price though, that money could be better spent elsewhere for similar experiences (like Dark Void).

This is one of such games which many men own here but didnt even launched. have no idea why. Binary Domain aint deserve such oblivion. Game old yeah, game have some cons technically (VOIP in singleplayer mode its quite a story), controls could be not such obvious for regular FPS player, but hey, this all wash away easily when you see gameplay. BD tells a story about future of the humanity, artificial intelligence, military minds of goverment, crazy scientists and, as u can see on screenshots - about robots. Gameplay could be described like 3rd person shooter with covers. noth special prbbly but there is a feature: your squad and relationship between it. such thing like trust. every pause between shootouts fills some fast talk with your crew, they ask your about someth and react according to your answer ( will have few options ). if you get along with crew their help will be more significant, plus higher trust with someone provide some minor variety of story, actually change nothing but slightly differ story ending. ability to command squad ( open fire, take cover, move here etc) also somewhat depend of trust level. At certain points of gameplay you can choose by yourself who exactly go with you on mission, its up to you to keep nearby those who you like the most.
Characters written actually not bad, like in every movie there are main roles and secondary characters, cameo appearances.
Acting and voice acting is good.
About game design, level of detalisation, architecture its not always on same level. Few locations looks realy cool and enjoyable, others mediocre and controversial ( personal opinion ), but quality of action and shooting is top notch. hostile robots could be destroyed piece by piece: like if you shot off an arm with gun then robot take his gun with other hand, if you shot out leg robot will be crawl, headshots make robots shoot each other instead of player. Such damage system is quite rare in games indeed, made action much more satisfying. robots also have solid AI about cover, supression and flanking, it make solid challenge especially on higher difficulty settings. visual effect of impact by firearms also looks good.
Sound and music its not goin to take Grammy or someth, but its more than enough for videogame
Few words about extras: for players looking for coop mode there is such thing Iike Invasion. could be played in solo, but no matter how much you try by yourself you'll never beat all 50 waves. This mode basicly arena with limited amount of enemies and supplies, provide absolutely insane challenge, hardcore but fair. Player to Player connection yet cheap and old but allow to play with friends with no prob at all, proved, tested by myself: all worked just fine. Aslo PvP mode exists but its absolutely dead. lot of talking about mp on community hub but nobody actually play multiplayer for years.
Conclusion to Binary Domain will be such: medium budget singleplayer oriented game made with soul. thats why i forgive it many things, will revisit it over and over again. Thank you Sega, you did a good game

An amazing game that's unfortunately a terrible PC port. It looks great and is highly ambitious, but the controls for mouse and keyboard and voice recognition technology are absolutely atrocious. Worth it if you have a controller and play with the squad commands turned off. The graphics still look good after 8 years, the cover-based shooting is satisfying, and the story is very engaging. Just be aware this is a bare-bones port effort by Sega, but since the original game is not backwards compatible on Xbox, this is your only shot if you want to experience it without digging out a 360. Worth it with those caveats.

+Choose Dialogue responses, similar to an Rpg, in this case for reputation gain/loss
+A Good Selection of Weapon upgrades for both you and your squadmate.
+Enemy have weakpoints, e.g shooting out the legs of androids, cripples them and slows them down.
+Voice commands, though gimmicky it's an interesting inclusion, the ability to command your squad mate (attack, regroup, cover fire etc.) *I didn't try the feature however.
+Squadmates have reputation which effect combat effectiveness and moral, though some speech options are very unclear, often resulting in negative rep, you can also gain rep for heroic actions in battle or negative rep for friendly fire etc.
+Amazing squad dynamic, as the game progresses friendships bond similar to mass effect. It worked very well, by the end of the game i felt a great bond between the group.
+Headshot enemies to send them into a frenzy state attacking fellow robots, useful for creating decoys in large open engagements.
+Squad mates can get downed by enemy fire, forcing the player or other squadmates to revive them, medkits are required to do so and can run out, so there is a bit of strategy in saving health for yourself or to use on teammates, if they die the mission will fail.


-Console port, Controls can be very unclear, sensitivity is all over the place (Analog deadzone).
-30fps cutscenes & 60fps gameplay cap, for some this might be ok but it always hinders potential for action shooters like this.
-Messy hud far to big, and it seems to be rendered at 720p, this is even more evident at higher aspect ratios. clear PS3 generation console port swap.
-When trying to fix ultrawide with flawless widescreen, shadows will break unfortunately (though this isn't the games fault per-say).
-Animations are locked at 30fps, This is not surprising as it's a direct console port, (engine most likely doesn't support higher).
-Dodge mechanic feels delayed and clunky, especially bad when avoiding hits from larger enemies.


Set in the year 2080, this Cyberpunk style action 3rd person shooter, mixes the ideas of present day 3rd person military shooter cliche styles (humour, writing, cover, combat) with a futuristic setting.
Enemies including, drones, androids & larger robotic machines like something out of transformers, shooting off armour to reveal weak spots for extra damage, or shooting the heads off smaller enemies to make them frenzy and fight anything in a small vicinity.
Initially The story did have quit a slow start and wasn't sure if it was really something i would like, infact i was pretty unimpressed, as it felt like a ps3 generic cover shooter thus giving me a very bad impression, but after the 1st chapter the plot really started picking up and i quickly changed my mind.
The main plot starts to thicken, & the humour is well written, timed & works throughout the story offering a nice balance between serious & comedic. Even with the facial animations being dated, delivers a believable and very well told story.
In some areas of the game it had a distinctly 'Yakuza' vibe to it which i loved.
Combat delivers nice variety of action animations, both in cover and out, a great deal of fun can be gained from the visuals alone destruction etc)
Different actions, depending on who you bring with you in certain areas of the game will effect outcomes, which is great. (i'm also told trust reputation effects this and the ending as well).

Hidden Gem.

Binary Domain sat in my library for a very very long time.
Game play was super fun with a lot of variety on how to play. Lots of different guns to choose from and picking different crew members can change the experience drastically.

AI was a little stupid, always running to the same cover as you / running to the enemy but not actually shooting them. Enemy AI however were very good and sometimes were challenging.
Bosses were crazy, OTT and I loved it.

The levels were pretty good aside from the boat level, that one was pretty shit and took me a few tries.

Not a game I would pay full price for but at 50% or more off for a roughly 10 hour game would certainly be worth it.

Binary Domain is probably the biggest surprise I've had in a while. Ended up almost finishing it in a single sitting (don't trust the hours displayed since Steam doesn't record offline time).

The Bad: It has janky controls, and the mouse bucked around like a mad horse from time to time (although it seems to be because it prefers to keep movements strictly on the x and y axis, and gets very antsy when you try something else), and there are some insanely frustrating moments when you get knocked down and killed in a loop like fashion.

The Good: The rest!
Sound design is great. The Shotgun is just heaven. The characters are quirky and memorable. The RGG cheese comes through in spades. Dismembering robots did not get old. And there is something oddly gratifying about a French Robot complimenting you on your shooting skills in the middle of a fire fight.

Buy on sale, and it becomes an easy recommendation if you like sci fi or cover based shooters.

A peak among third person shooters.

This gave me the camaraderie among the cast members that I wanted from Gears of War in addition to it having a more appealing framing. I love the mish mash of set pieces with varying gameplay types and gimmicks. It reminded me of the trashy parts of Resident Evil 6 but this doesn't overstay its welcome like that game does. There were really no lulls in the pacing.

Some of the combat encounters left a bit to be desired and the bosses approach bullet sponge territory but I'm willing to overlook such things when I loved the rest like I do. I wouldn't ever bother with the highest difficulty setting but there's plenty of replay value to be found elsewhere. Looking forward to replaying with different partner combinations in addition to sweeping up some of the collectibles.

Also some of the men in this game have boob armor. I have to stan.

B.R.U.H, where was you in all my steam game browsing time?
It's a Hidden gem 100%, There isn't anything like it on the market, with the slight exception of that new 2019 Terminator fps game that cost $80, this one is cheaper.

This game have:

Good characters modelling.
Good story and lore.
Good shooting, bullet impacts and physics.
A very large amount of humour, and is actually hilarious.
it's can run on a Intel HD 520 LAPTOP, without killing the machine.

I finished Binary Domain back in 2014. Despite it's flaws, despite it's shortcomings, this game remains one of, if not my favorite third person shooter of all time. I am fully aware there are superior games that beat it in almost every technical aspect imaginable, but the absolute blast I had playing Binary Domain from start to finish sticks to with me to this day. It still feels as if I just beat this game yesterday.

Why does it feel that way? I honestly and simply do not know. It is something that defies my ability to form a concrete answer I can be comfortable saying I am satisfied with. Not everyone will like this game. Some will love it. Some will hate it. Some will find it average. Some will want to ram a pike up my backside Vlad the Impaler style for being motivated by my review to buy the game and despise it. I am ok with that possibility (please don't do it. ) but to cover my ass, you have to make the decision in the end as to whether or not you want to buy and play Binary Domain.

My review is not based on the technical ups and downs of the game. It is not based on the quality of the story or characters. It is based simply upon my love for the game and not being able to figure out why I still have such fond memories of it to this day.

Do I recommend it? I sure damn do, but play the demo first to make sure to get an idea as to whether you want to buy t he game or not. My opinion on it is my own and cannot be seen gospel as my opinion is one of many and no more important than any other review.

This game has been in my steam library for god knows how long, and i have no idea how it got there, but i decided to give it a try, and man am I glad it was there.

Just a real solid game all around. Is it perfect? God no, but it is most certainly worth a play through.

Game play:
The game play is pretty decent and standard for a third person cover shooter, and melee attacks feel super meaty and satisfying to finish off enemies with.

A bit of an exposition dump during the first hour or so of the game, though the story is far more naturally integrated later down the line. The story is nothing super special, though near the end especially is real engaging. The addition of multiple endings is kinda stupid though.

The characters however are phenomenal. Big Bo is easily my favorite. I liked how much characterization the main character had. One gripe with characters though is that one of them (Rachael) just kinda doesn't do anything? Other than that, you can really see the growth in character relations as the story progresses, and their personalities bounce off of each other real well.

Controls are not great on PC. Before i started playing, i saw something that said a controller would be far better, however if you plug in a controller, non of the button prompts change to reflect that, so figuring out what did what took up a solid chunk of my first hour of play time. I did try switching to mouse and keyboard, though something about it just feels awkward.

There's also 2 gimmicks that the game has, that being the voice commands, and trust meter. The voice commands are awful, turn them off the second you get the game. It's bad at recognizing what you say, and its also not clear what you can say. The recognition is also constantly on, so say if you're playing the game while in a discord call, it will pick up whatever you say and possibly make your team mates do something.

The second gimmick is the trust meter which i really just don't see the point in. It determines which ending you get, but only the true ending feels complete? I really liked the ending i got (it wasn't the true ending), but one of the main characters just wasn't in the story because i didn't have his trust level high enough.

[spoiler]Also for people who have played the game, is there any explanation as to why Officer Kurosawa just kinda stops existing after escape?[/spoiler]

To Wrap Up:

Buy the game. It's nothing incredibly mind blowing, but it's just a great time all around. At points it's annoying, but the story and characters will keep you going (though i wouldn't recommend playing it all in one sitting).

I give it a solid 7/10

(Also I've yet to play the multiplayer, though if i can convince friends to buy it when it's on sale i will update the review to reflect that)

Rating Scale:

1: God Awful. Physically hurts to play. not even ironic enjoyment
2: There was maybe a single good thing i liked
3: Bad
4: Below average
5: Average (Nothing special, but alright)
6: Pretty good
7: Just real solid.
8: Hoo Boy.
9: Incredible
10: Holy fuck

Binary Domain is truely an hidden gem. Great story, cool and memorable characters, Gears-like gameplay that do the job, epic actions scenes and boss fights... Too bad they botched the PC port hard with locked framerate and horrendous controls, but if you can get past these issues (it really gives a bad first impression), this game has a lot to offer.

[h1]This is a criminally underrated cover based third person shooter.[/h1]
Binary Domain is certainly a product of its time and it shows. Essentially playing as some sort of amalgam of Gears of War, Mass Effect — a dash of PlatinumGames' Vanquish — set in a world not dissimilar to I, Robot. [Is that overselling it? Maybe a little bit.] But hear me out!

You'll play as Dan Marshall, ex-special ops. Now of International Robotics Technology Association (IRTA) They have a task force colloquially known as “Rust Crews”. Essentially a group of ragtag ex-something-or-other mercenary types on orders from the UN Security Council to investigate the Amada Corporation under suspicion of violating clause 21 of the “New Geneva Convention” — a clause that is set to disallow research into robots that could pass as human referred to as “Hollow Children”. The reason for this suspicion is due to an attack on a rival robotics company called “Bergen” by one of these robots, seemingly unaware that they were in fact... a robot.
That's the introduction of the game, we're way past Isaac Asimov's Foundation here. Something I rather enjoy about the game is that they don't dawdle pontificating on philosophy regarding what “life” is. Well, not for very long, in any case. The game instead plays out more like a spy thriller. Focusing on whether crimes have actually been committed and tries to incorporate themes about loyalty under fire/duress and/or extreme circumstances.

I mentioned Mass Effect — Binary Domain is extremely linear. With some moments of respite where you're able to converse with your team members. The game heavily relies on responding to your teammates in battle as well as out. It's certainly not as robust of a system as Mass Effect or even something like Persona's Social Link. It basically boils down to agree or disagree, with 2 other options based on the situation. But your decisions on how to respond to your team's inquiries will affect what they think of you.[spoiler]These relationships will affect the ending.[/spoiler]

Similarly, performing well in combat aids in their trust while performing poorly or shooting your team (accidentally or on purpose) has an expected negative impact.

One of the more unique aspects of this game is that you can respond to their inquiries with an actual microphone. As well as give out orders with a mic. However, it's not that interesting or well done in practice. I recommend ignoring it and just selecting one of the on-screen options. This is also how orders are given.

That said, there are plenty of chase and turret sequences fulfilling the triple A quota.

You'll be shooting a lot of robots, mechs and assorted electric type things. And you might assume that in a game set in the future you'd have some super sci-fi type weaponry. Instead, you'll have a tried and true arsenal — sub-machine guns, big assault rifles, bigger assault rifles, things that go boom. But you'll also have a number of gadgets at hand. Such as your main rifle, the one that is sort of 'attached' to Dan [You cannot actually unequip it. Every team member has one weapon that they specialize in. You can then have one other weapon, a sidearm and grenades held at one time.] That rifle can be charged up to release a large EMP blast, destroying smaller enemies and stunning larger ones giving you time to attack. Plus you'll have a plethora of various grenade types to liven things up.
The robots break apart really nicely, the weapons feel appropriate for the amount of damage they cause. Sweeping out their legs is a viable crowd control tactic. However, they'll still crawl to you without legs and if you stop paying attention to them or don't take them out fully before they reach you. You can end up in a world of hurt if they grab your leg.

In addition to the VERY lite leveling, wherein you can purchase upgrades (firepower, rate of fire, accuracy, etc...) in kiosks spread around the world. You can also buy med-kits or more ammo there. Sort of like Dead Space with its kiosks. It actually reminded me of Drebin points from MGS4 in all honesty. As sometimes you'd need to visit the shop mid-fight to re-up certain ammo types.

There are also nanomachines to buy at the kiosks (they can be found as well) but they need to fit inside the designated squares in order to be used. Like a mini-Tetris game, though they're nothing like tetrominoes. They're all character specific within the game so there is a certain amount collecting needed to obtain them all.

Furthering the aforementioned Mass Effect point, you'll select two other team members to fight alongside you [on most missions]. And they all have different trust levels based on how you interact with them.

Binary Domain was met with mixed reviews as far as I recall when it launched. I don't remember a lot of fanfare around it. Even despite Sega publishing it and having a pretty robust and almost “celebrity” voice cast in Troy Baker and Laura Bailey. At least I'd consider them celebrities to us nerds here.

I think it's a fantastic game. Decent story, decent gameplay. Granted, it's not great. But it's well above-average and I can heartily recommend.

[h1]Quizzical anecdotes:[/h1]
Binary Domain holds a special place in my heart as it's one of three games I completed while in tech school for the Air Force. (I was there about 6 months.) The other two being “I am Alive” and “Bioshock: Infinite”. I had to play it offline which incidentally is where I found out that Steam doesn't count time played when spent actually offline. In any regard, the achievements I earned in this game are actually dated 2013 from my initial playthrough. I had to walk to the library on base to download this and those other games to my laptop (had a 630M in it) as there was no internet in the on-base dorms. This playthrough I mostly did for fun but to also get something more official written down. [spoiler]Only new achievement this time was earning Big Bo's trust. I don't know how I missed it before. Dude's a riot.[/spoiler]

If you want a game that tries to be Metal Gear, I, Robot, Terminator, Mass Effect, Lifeline, and An Inconvenient Truth all at the same time, with jank cover shooter controls and amazing voice acting, this is it.

This game is a rare breed of Japanese third person shooters like Vanquish who have a very unique personality due to being made by a Japanese developer. Cheesy,over the top, with decent story too. I liked this game mostly for the big boss fights and very interesting story about Artificial Intelligence. Shooting normal robot enemies becomes tiring and repetitive around halfway mark. The characters are fun and have funny lines. Play this game for the interesting story and fun boss fights.

Definitely one of my favorite games that I have and I'm not entirely sure why considering it's not exactly my type of game. Altho doubting my opinion I can definitely point out why I like it so much but my point is that I feel like something is always missing that I should point out.
The game appears bland, specially because of its age, but it is, without any doubt, a fantastic game. From the characters development, the plot, the connection with real events to throw you the future, the mechanics or the amazing construction of a future-to-be Tokyo this game is just explendid.
This is one of those games that from time to time I feel the desire to replay and that rarely happens.
8.8/10 - highly recommendable

In the best way possible, it's like playing a B-movie. There's something about the game that makes shooting robots incredibly satisfying, between the sound design / feedback and the visuals. The story and dialogue is a bit cheesy but charming at the same time. Fully deserves its status as a cult classic, and earns an easy recommendation for anyone who enjoys 3rd person shooters.

The humor is too cringey, the dialogue feels straight out of a bad 80s movie and the gameplay might have felt good at release date but is now showing its age too much. The voice recognition while a cool idea is not really that useful and half the time the characters only half understand what you're saying.
It's pretty cheap right now, so if you want to see for yourself go ahead, but I wouldn't recommend it

First they took our jobs. Now they're coming for our lives.
Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel it.
The job I've lost... The coworkers I've lost... Won't stop hurting.

You feel it, too, don't you?
Will you fight? Or will you perish like a dog?
We're gonna make them give back our past!

Third person shooter different from others. The ability to give commands to other members of the team and to choose members for almost every mission. Very compelling plot and full of twists. Wonderful character development.

'Aight this is a game where you shoot lots of robots. Despite being somewhat clunky it surprisingly scratches that itch for something with an unashamed Japanese Arcade 1980's shooter vibe.

It's not as good as Vanquish, visually its rough around the edges, and the cover and camera system is clunkier than Gears of War, however it ends up being a therapeutically addictive B movie robot shooter that somehow massages your brain in a relaxing pleasing manner.

Buy it on sale.

After finishing the game once I can give it a thumbs up.
1. Great story - worth playing for it and it;s plot twist. - But It could have been more - also they could do a second game
2. Great characters
1. player controls are not so good - The same button is used for running, hiding and jumping over shit. Which makes the game play really annoying.
2. camera is a bit confusing, especially when the character is running or it is surrounded.

All in all I enjoyed the game and it's worth the price if you buy it at a discount that is. Would recommend.

Played this game for just 24 minutes, had 11 crashes. It crashes during dialogue, when a cutscene occurs, when a cutscene ends, when a bossfight starts. Basically it just crashes. Tried to fix it, changed compatibility mode, tried different CPU cores, tried different graphic settings ETC ETC ETC. It just still doesn't work, the gameplay may be good. But the game doesn't let me play it. This shouldn't be sold on steam, seriously. Fix your game first, thank you.

Great gameplay, some characters was well writting, some others were has flaws but i like the concept of the game because it achieve making u think what make us human. Yeah the typical blade runner -cyberpunk philoshophy but the game acomplish his goal . The love story was ok but the bro moments was great. SO i believe its at least a 7.5/10. it does not do something new neither at story or gameplay but at least the final product was more than ok.

I really want to like this game. The plot is good, the characters are believable, and there is very solid gameplay. The AI even adapts to your strategy and damage.
However, the controls are poor enough to be a deal breaker. They're not designed for mouse and keyboard and nothing is exactly where I expect it to be. I'm also told that controller support is lacking for this version, so there's no easy fix. This might be a problem I could overcome with some practice, but there's a squad control component that is meant to be voice activated. It kinda almost works. But that means that it also doesn't work because 2012 voice recognition just didn't. There's a lot of ambition and promise in the game, but I can't stand fighting the controls or repeatedly shouting at my squadmates and not getting a response for one more minute.

oh wow the cringe is so strong with this one..

console port
max fov is 80

so far it's been more or less corridor cover shooter
with score attack mechanics

not a lot of ways to play tactical but I do get the hunch that this is more like a blockbuster spectacle kind of thing going on and the game seems to not take itself too seriously.

I would suggest to only buy when discounted
