    The game is a pretty simple shooter, mostly based in small environments. It promises a lot of fun by it's quick action, fast paced, except when loading and migrating hosts; issues with the online play by the lag, and the frustration when a room crashes as you receive nothing, not to mention that the aiming system could be improved. The weapons are just fine , and the graphics are ok; takesThe game is a pretty simple shooter, mostly based in small environments.

    Backlight tango down is basically a the multiplayer for call of duty with a little sci-fi mixed in. when it first was released I was all over it. The game is loads of fun, has great graphics (for a dlc title) and is full of unlockables that will take a lot of time invested to get. But looking back, this title was not enough to hold my attention for long.

    There are some genuinely slick moments to be enjoyed. [Feb 2011, p.104]

    While the learning curve is a little steep, the combat and weaponry has an extremely different feel and is well worth a look for the bargain price of 20 bucks. [February 2011 p81]

    Blacklight has shortcomings, but style isn't one of them. [Jan 2011, p.96]
