Blacksite Area 51 piqued my curiosity when I was a new Xbox 360 owner in 2007, and I had seen it on the shelf too many times in visits to my local Gamestop to pass it up, so I finally bought it. What I got when I played it was a dull, lifeless, and somewhat ugly looking first person shooter that didn’t hold up at all next to the recently released Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
With its gimmicky “squad tactics” that added absolutely nothing to the game, and constant frame rate issues and loading issues, this game was destined to be a bargain bin title within months of it’s release. Behold our first episode of Bargain Bin Reviews, on Blacksite Area 51.
