  1. The production values, graphics, and especially the voice acting are extremely well done, and the game has non-stop action and never feels dull.
  2. While it’s not going to revolutionize the genre nor is it even a AAA title, it’s by no means a poor game and the ongoing action will really be music to the ears of FPS fans.
  3. If "Half-life" and "Serious Sam" were combined, I have a feeling that Area 51 would be the result.

    While there are problems--too cutscene-heavy, some lame objectives, and the fact that there are infinitely more zombies than little green men--Area 51 is more than enough to make a believer out of you.

    Unfortunately experienced FPS players may find they aren’t being offered anything new in the game.
  6. 75
    From its chaotic beginning to its clinically insane conclusion, Area 51 provides just enough classic FPS action and technical goodness to merit a great rating and honest recommendation.
  7. The name alone will bring many gamers to the shelves scooping this one up, but really it’s just another decent FPS. For the price it’s not a bad deal considering all the choices in this genre.
  8. One of the most intense first person shooters to be released this year.
