    B:TD is a great online shooter when it gets going, but an awful lobby system makes that way harder than it should be. [Nov 2010, p.72]
  2. Blacklight: Tango Down turns out to be too much fun for the slowness of the matchmaking system to prove too much of an obstacle.
  3. Depending on your patience, Blacklight could be the best fifteen bucks you've ever spent on a game, or a frustrating waste of cash.
  4. In the end, Blacklight: Tango Down is a good game with some lofty goals. For sheer amount of content it gets gold stars, and ideas like the Digi Grenade, which explodes into a brilliant array of blinding pixels, are admirable ones. Unfortunately, the game also likes to reward shady practices like spawn camping, and the health bar is pretty much useless.
  5. Blacklight: Tango Down is a decent, cheap multiplayer shooter for the budget-minded gamer looking for a change of pace.
  6. Despite a lucratively low price, Blacklight has no future. Modern Warfare 2 and Bad Company 2 are much better replacements if you want to just shoot at somebody, and if you're itching for some classic multiplayer gameplay, Counter-Strike Source is an excellent remedy for nostalgia.

    Absences of multi-player opponents and lack of any in-game improvements are the major disadvantages of this average first person shooter. [Issue#195]

For 50 percent off it was even better. However, the biggest problem I have is I can't ever find anyone to play with. I only end up with 2-3 people in a lobby, and the game can never start. When I could play it, it was pretty fun. I also agree with other reviewers. I don't have any clue why developers keep using games for windows live. It is always a pain. Expand

Lots of exploitable camping locations on maps that are literally impossible to sneak past at times because of how unfair some maps are. The wallhack thing implemented in the game (HRV) is kind of neat though, and the fact that you can't use your gun while it is on is a good balancing act. Singleplayer is pretty bad. Enemy AI is **** when they see you, they shoot; when they don't see you, they don't shoot. They use cover, but only because it's near them. Co-opping makes it more fun but only because you have a friend or two to make fun of it with you. I got it for the $7.50 Steam sale price. I would rather it be $5, definitely not worth the $15.

I might reconsider it if they release a patch to control hacking. But, if you can look over that, it's a mediocre game. Expand
