    The first impressions from the game maybe could be pretty good, but progressing in the game, you'll see many critical bugs; the gameplay lacks of fun. The aliens are ugly to see. It could've been a good game, but sadly too many things gone wrong. VIRTUALINN.IT

    DO NOT TOUCH THIS GAME! AT ALL! DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

    Ok enough Caps Lock ride. Now the game is advertised as a full game with 6 hours of content... what? 6 hours? Ok. Unfortunately you can beat the entire game and get all the bonus stuff in 4 hours. Top it all off you get shafted at the end by a horrendous ending! You won't believe me until you see it for yourself so here is a

    In retrospect Dark Matter should probably not have been released. At least not in this state. It’s a shame since there’s good stuff here. But right now it’s just an unfinished metroidvania clone.

    Promising, and if it had the time to finish, or even start, it could've been something fairly decent. Oh well. [December 2013, p.84]

    Inspired by a number of popular sc-fi properties, Dark Matter held the promise of offering an appealing mash-up of Metroid-style gameplay and Dead Space-like scares. While it mostly gets the mood right, due in no small part to its slick lighting and audio work, its other elements barely range from subpar to serviceable.
