    It's not that bad as a game. Even though it faces some technical problems and some references in gameplay of Dead Space (Not so much actually) this game is not half bad. Not a complete waste of time either as the gameplay is pretty standard and fun for a third-person shooter.

    It can be frustratingly hard too: slog. [Aug 2012, p.77]

    It's a waste of some fairly pleasant graphics. [July 2012, p.105]

    It is great to see more games of this quality appearing on download services such as Xbox Live Arcade, as it shows that those platforms are viable for bigger and better games. Deep Black Episode 1 may miss step in a couple of places and have an extremely abrupt ending, but it is a competent shooter that is defiantly worth a look, if you enjoy the genre. Just don't expect anything ground breaking in terms of story.
