Gameplay: 7
Graphics: 9
Sound: 9
Value: 6
Tilt: 7

Overall: 7.4

The Good: Really sharp audiovisual presentation; makes a great first impression; lots of glass to break.

The Bad: Not much reason to play through it more than once; gameplay feels stuck in a rut; disappointing story; often-idiotic artificial intelligence.

Read the full review here.

Sounds like they made it all shiny but forgot to add anything beyond visuals.

IGN Xbox: 8.6.

IGN PS2: 8.7.

The jist? Pretty game that goes by pretty quick, is pretty fun but is pretty bare on innovation.

You know what? Good for IGN. I'm happy they aren't giving games such crazy high scores anymore for medicore games. I bet a year ago this would have gotten a 8.9 or something.

Actually it looks like gamespots reviews is not really going to be the average. I preordered this and if gamespy and others rate it good, I`ll grab it. Otherwise, I`ll move that money over to Metroid for thr DS next month! So, any impressions of Black here???

After playing the demo more I have already decided that my downpayment money will go to GRAW or something else.  I just see this as a rent now.   I am looking forward to it, but with Fight Night almost here from Gamefly and Ghost Recon just around the corner, I see Black fading into...well, black.

I was planning on renting this all along.

Glad to see renting is going to be the way to go with this.

This pretty much confirmed my fears from the demo- I really need a decent variety of gameplay and a good story to get into a FPS these days.  I'll be cancelling my preorder and picking it up once it hits $20.

I think the game is awesome based onthe demo, but I see it getting old quickly AND at only 6-8 hours I will definately be renting this one.
