Dark Sector thrusts players into the role of Hayden Tenno, a covert operative sent on a dangerous mission into Lasria, an Eastern European city on the brink of ruin that hides a deadly Cold War secret. In the midst of this mission, Hayden is attacked by an unknown enemy and infected by the Technocyte Virus, a brutal bio-weapon that twists its victims into mindless killing machines. Surviving this attack, Hayden finds that the Technocyte virus has granted him powerful, inhuman abilities unlike anything he has ever seen. Now, he must evolve with his powers, survive and become a hero.
All new, all original action-shooter - Throughout the course of the game, players will witness Hayden's transformation into something more than he was as he fights against the Technocyte Virus taking over his body and the effects it has on his psyche.
Evolution powers - Hayden gains incredible superhuman powers - including the deadly, bladed glaive that he can grow from his arm and use and throw with deadly accuracy. Hayden will grow with these powers as they evolve and become more powerful throughout the game.
Cinematic and immersive experience - Through the use of no HUD, intuitive controls and a 3rd-person over the shoulder viewpoint everything about Dark Sector is designed with the goal of keeping the player immersed in the game.
Innovative multiplayer component - Dark Sector features an innovative and exciting multiplayer gameplay that will allow players to utilize the skills they have learned in the single-player game to excel in a competitive environment

Dark Sector reviews and comments

Translated by

Really... It doesn't give anything to say your "WOW", it is a decent game, it is like Gears of war, but with the protagonist with a sparky more of charisma, a Russian bastard in every rule, apart, after almost 300 hours cast to Warframe, you end up hooking the story and "those little details" that Related to the game said above, highly recommended if you like Warframe, if not, try Pillartelo cheapie, to Destress (Or not, because there is every situation...)

PIECE ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ One has the Experanza that after having played warframe dark sector will be a jewel because often error eh seen games older than dark sector with a good quality in terms of weapons and a more or less decent precision but this makes me completely mad , bad controls buff could follow but almost I prefer to spend my time more on warframe than doing this review, does not deserve its 10 euros price at least 5 or even less and honestly not that it can cost them to improve it considering that every player who Like Warframe Acavara buying it regardless of whether they listen to me or not. On the other hand the lore seemed very poor I trust that in some future in which TO think ' ' Ummm we will improve the dark sector total we lose if apparently we are already lined ´ ´ the best I do not recommend it now well if you do not mind dealing with a contro Les de ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ and an aim that seems to have twisted the barrel of all the weapons you use, go ahead play it

Dark sector is the prequel to one of my favorite multiplayer WARFRAME a new Action game and Shooter. Let's Start by saying that their mechanics as a game are very poor and scarce, glaive and little else, except almost the end of the game that give you a couple more. On the other hand the controls are Incomodisimos and tedious, on more than one occasion I had to close the game by the controls because I was getting very nervous. The same weapons, super scarce and boring, without anything special or make him stand out. Graphically very ugly for its time, the Spanish dubbing stinks, voice acting ridiculous and the sync with the mouth completely failed. It is noticeable that Digital Extremes has wanted to camouflage this game because it is a potato. The story annoys me, I am annoyed that seeing the immense universe of Warframe and the incredible lore that has because this is so bad, could have made a good prequel in their time and... This leaves a lot to be desired. In conclusion that is very cool to see the first Exoarmadura Excalibur, the glaive and Lotus Emblems out there, but as a game leaves a lot to be desired and remains far from being a decent game. Note: 5/10
This game is full of paradoxes. The fighting is dull and uninspiring, but at the same time you have various unique powers and upgrades. The visual style looks great sometimes, but the graphics are dated even for 2009. I’d only recommend this game to Warframe fans who would like to see more of the lore. If you are not into Warframe, then skip this one.
