Black it the shelves back in 2006 to re-invent the dying FPS market. Criterion stated that they were to "do for shooting what Burnout did for racing - tear it apart". They certainly did.
Lets get started on what is obviously the greatest feature of this game by far. The incredible graphics. Black is often referred to as 'gun-porn'. The detail they put into each piece of weaponry is truly explicit. The way the environment around you blurs during reloading, putting the weapon in the spotlight... (read more)

Black is a full on action game, and you really get your money's worth because it takes so long to do the levels!! The graphics are great and help the general gameplay to live to its billing. The levels are long, enthralling and throw things totally out of the blue.
Although there is nothing wrong with hard games, there are minimal checkpoints, and that can really put the game down as you get so far, then pop up at the beginning again.
It is a great and hard first person game!! Great for... (read more)

Does anyone at EA Games know the meaning of the word easy? In this game easy is very hard and hard means beyond mission impossible.Some of the enemy with shotguns have amour like a tiger tank and on easy takes many hits to knock them down.The gun change/reload is a bit slow and this can be very frustrating as even on easy the enemy can spot a fleas eyebrow at 400M and they`ve shot you to shreds before you`ve got time to bring the gun up on aim. No multi-player unlike Black Hawk Down which I... (read more)

I'm back to review Black again!
I have had Black for a few months now and I have changed my mind about the game. I've played it a lot more since my last review and it isn't impossible to complete- I've done it on all the difficulty modes- and also I think the scores given in this review reflect much better just how good the game is. However, I still stand by what I said in my last review regarding the length of the levels- personaly I would much rather have twice as many shorter levels than... (read more)

Black is a great game- it's got good graphics and there is a lot of detail put into it.
However, there are 2 really annoying points:
The levels can sometimes drag for 50 mins, sometimes longer and the enemies in the game take to many bullets to die.
Aside from all that, though, Black is still a brilliant game to play and is well worth the money. (read more)

The quality of Black is at a high level, but the story board is too simple.
But you can use the elements of the scene to help you to kill bad guys
Enjoy it (read more)

When I first heard the name of this game Black, I thouht it was gonna be about gangsta's.
How wrong I was.
Its a boring shoot em' up, bordering on gun porn with the amount of details put into the gun animations and sounds.
Aside from that, this game is average, and offers nothing that we haven't seen before. (read more)
