    Overall, Prejudice is a vast improvement over the original with new modes to experience, polished controls and an even deeper customization system. If you're looking for a fun time alone or to share with some friends, for $15 you really can't go wrong here.

    Section 8: Prejudice has learned too much from the mistakes of its predecessor, but it isn't strong enough to become a clear choice in its genre. The game offers many hours of fun thanks to a fast-paced and fun multiplayer mode, but it still lacks of more depth, more options and a better use its potential. Anyway, it is a good example of FPS.

    As mutliplayer shooters go, it's hard to go wrong with Section 8: Prejudice, and while this game still won't live up to the Tribes name - turns out that there's nothing out there that can do that just yet - you'll still find a damn fine online shooter with plenty of depth, all in a low-cost package.

    Pure multiplayer action game. Low budget doesn't mean less fun if you're not looking for any added value. [June 2011]

For 15$ you will get a complete game experience, an about 5-6 hour long singelplayer with a standard story but it`s still fun and it teaches you the basics of the game.

    You will get a multiplayer that is full of memorable moments and adrenaline filled shootouts, but don`t confuse it with the ordinary "run & gun" gameplay because this game is all about teamplay and tactics. The multiplayer battles got support for 32 players and the game mode is called Conquest. You battle for 4 control points and for dynamic objectives to win the match, it`s very much like the conquest mode in the Battlefield games but with more things happening (like dynamic objectives). The objectives can be to kill a VIP player or to kill a bunch of players, but it can also be about protecting things or attacking things like a transport. Then you got a mode called Swarm, it`s a co-op game type which you can play either by yourself with bots or with up to 3 friends, the objective is to protect a capture point from enemy AI soldiers for 15 minutes, this game mode is very fun indeed. It´s like the survival mode in Left 4 Dead but with some nice tower defense added to spice all up. When you kill enemies you gain money both in Swarm and in Conquest and with that money you can buy vehicles and turrets, it`s a very important part of the game and makes it more tactical. All in all this is a great game which you should buy if your a fan of FPS games and for just 15$ dollars you aren`t exactly taking a big risk, and i bet you will like the game when you learnt the basics. I give this game 9/10 for it`s amazing price and simply because it`s a great game!

The game may have a bad single player, but that's because it was made for multiplayer. The spawning is unique to any game since you're just fired out of a ship in orbit ( air brakes optional : D ). The Class feature is VERY specific. My favorite build is where I just run around and run THROUGH people to kill them, but you can just mix and match until you get a build that fits you. Unfortunately for some people, strategy is needed to play this game though which makes this game challenging and overall AWESOME! Expand

It is now one of my favorite games to play online. Online is well balanced and addicting, and has a good verity of game modes. Camping is fun, but short and pretty average as the story is boring but the Multiplayer is worth the $15 alone. Get this game, you wont regret it. Expand

    Extremely fast-paced multiplayer. Entertaining campaign. Graphics are UT3 era-ish (no surprise seeing as it uses the UT game engine), butExtremely fast-paced multiplayer. Entertaining campaign. Graphics are UT3 era-ish (no surprise seeing as it uses the UT game engine), but still quite acceptable. Doesn't really bring much new to the FPS genre, but what it does bring it does well. I like the purchasing options during the game so no one can become too over powering right off the bat. Plus if you want the good stuff, you need to get and stay involved in the fight to earn money for upgrade purchases. Decent weapons load options too. Wish the weapons sounds had a little more "oomph" to them, but not that big of a deal. And for $15 bucks?? It's a slam-dunk deal. Expand

Yeah, the game looks and plays better than the originalWith so many FPSs on the market today, you've got to be really good to impress me. Yeah, the game looks and plays better than the original but it still doesn't go far enough to make me want to buy it again. The gameplay lacks that "I gotta do it" feel. Just feels rather plain, like a me-too version of every other FPS that is out there. Expand

    A portion of users are unable to play the game due to shoddy GFWL implementation.

They've known of the issue for over six months, but really don't seem to care. I believe no patch is coming. Other GFWL live games work on people's systems, so it's not that. Just know if you do buy this game, you may be out your money with no refund available. It's your call. Since I can only "play" the load screen, I can only review that much of the game. The load screen is pretty. The "Games For Windows Live Failed to Initialize" crash, not so much. Their forum hosts say that sometimes games won't work because of your configuration (i.e. their botched copy protection). So basically, if there's a problem they're telling you tough luck. Expand
