    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.

    Considering everything you get with this title -- a solid single player campaign, a diverse multiplayer suite, and just plain fun shooter gameplay -- Section 8: Prejudice is a steal at $15.

    It's not perfect, but we highly recommend this title to all FPS fans looking for something fresh to bide the time.

    The single player campaign is solid, but it's multiplayer that makes every cent of this $15-game worth. [July 2011, p.114]

    If you enjoy team based shooters you need to go buy this game now.

    There is a lot of game here for $15. Sure the controls could be a tad tighter (I do love the hoverbikes, though) and the graphics aren't in the same realm of other games in its class, even though this does lower the system requirements quite a bit, but Section 8: Prejudice is an excellent value and hopefully Timegate takes the revenue from this one and develops a new Kohan game.

    Section 8: Prejudice blows away most of the flaws of the first episode thanks to a good direction, a solid gameplay and a rich online multiplayer. Recommended.

    The campaign is nothing special, but you get more than your money's worth in the Conquest multiplayer mode. [July 2011, p.96]

    For $15, you get a campaign that's on par with retail games in terms of length and quality. You also get a solid multiplayer title with a good amount of maps and modes. All of this comes together with a solid technical package that combines some fresh elements with tried-and-true gameplay.

    Regardless of the unapologetically generic setting and aesthetics though, Prejudice's scale, depth and accessibility make it a very attractive option for some cheap multiplayer gaming. It doesn't do anything new, but it does old things well enough to be worth a look, despite a few niggles and flaws.

    Dropping into multiplayer battles in Prejudice's armored suit is a thrill, and its battles are never over 'till they're over. [July 2011, p.68]

    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.

    Little touches like the DCMs and base-building elements help keep the action fresh, and the frenetic Conquest mode offers plenty of replay value. For a budget title, Section 8: Prejudice offers a lot of content. It doesn't rank alongside the Call of Dutys and Battlefields of the world, but it's worth a look for FPS fans itching for a new experience.

    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.

    A big step forward for the brand, served with a funny single player campaign and a well balance multiplayer experience.

    It's a well done game and it doesn't cost much. The multiplayer matches are worth playing and the dynamic mission design makes for some nice surprises. The solo campaign is lacking, though.

    Section 8: Prejudice explores well-worn territory, but a smart campaign and volatile competitive mode make this shooter rise above its generic aesthetic.

    A budget game that delivers a budget experience. [Aug 2011, p.102]

    It took TimeGate two years to make a sequel to Section 8, but they never bothered to fully develop their concept of the orbital assault force. Only the moderate price tag and a lack of decent sci-fi multiplayer shooters keep it from burning out on entry.

    Prejudice certainly does a lot – it just doesn't do very much well.

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

    When I first saw the trailer for this game I thought it looked kinda good, but after seeing the price my jaw dropped. 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!

    Considering the price, this game is a lot of fun. I got the first section 8 last year and my only negative was that no one played it. Being jettisoned out of a dropship every respawn never seems to get old, and with the dynamic missions and how hectic battles can get no two matches are the same. I also like the variety available for different playstyles, with the different customization options for loadouts and various ways you can spend the in match currency (turrets, giant mechs, supply depots, etc). I would add that you shouldn't buy this game just for the singleplayer, as although it is improved over the first game it is nowhere near as entertaining as the multiplayer. Full Review »

    Overall I was disappointed by this game. The graphics are decent, but not particularly impressive. The gameplay is where it really lacks. The campaign is incredibly dull and uninspired. I can't remember the last FPS game I played that I got so bored of I quit after several levels. The weapons feel incredibly weak and bland; for a sci-fi game I expected something a little more interesting than the standard pistol, AR, Sniper, etc. and all of the weapons are very weak. Even with the Auto Lock On mechanic it takes a ton of bullets to kill anything. The drop in mechanic in MP quickly gets annoying due to AA preventing you from dropping on most areas of the map. The deployable weapons are rather weak as well, which quickly made them more of nuisance to deploy than a benefit. This game was not even worth $15. Full Review »
