    Section 8: Prejudice is a must-own XBLA title.

    While it definitely has a "something borrowed" gameplay and visual style, and a instantly forgettable, brief single-player mode, its invigorating and intense Xbox Live multiplayer at such a well-worth-it bargain price provides gamers more than enough incentive to enlist into Section 8: Prejudice's call of duty.

    Despite the matchmaking quibbles and the occasionally stilted friendly AI, Section 8: Prejudice is a tremendous package, one that easily keeps up with -- and in some cases surpasses -- the retail competition.

    Section 8: Prejudice offers a fun set of shooter mechanics, with a complete campaign and robust multiplayer package without costing you a full $60.

    Section 8: Prejuice is definitely a good online FPS, better than the prequel in every aspect. Single player campaign and multiplayer certainly have much to offer, despite many imperfections.

    Doesn't feel like a true upgrade to the original, and there's plenty of room for improvement. But with a lengthier single player campaign, action-packed multiplayer battles, and the promise of more game modes in the near future, all for the bargain price of fifteen dollars (and no need to waste gas to pick it up), there's certainly enough incentive to add it to your repertoire.

    It's only too bad this series can't get out of its own way at times, because there are moments when it's pure fun and others that feel at odds with the rest of the package.

The DCMs which are side missions that you can do to gain points to buy vehicles, turrets, and support items. The use of that changes the game entirely. You spawn by halo diving in anywhere in the map, which is pretty awesome, you can also land on people if you have a lot of skill. You can use points to drop AAs which stop people from spawning in that area. It is a cycle, an amazing cycle that works as long as you have a great team. Also executions with a mech is awesome Expand

The story is dumb, but the gameplay is fantastic, with lots of options for customization, jetpacks, mechs, tanks, missiles, and lots of fun variety of missions. Don't be fooled by the simplistic exterior -- there's a lot to see here! Expand

    Section 8: Prejudice improves everything in this thrilling sequel. Story, gameplay, loadouts, and graphics... Prejudice is something no fan ofSection 8: Prejudice improves everything in this thrilling sequel. Story, gameplay, loadouts, and graphics... Prejudice is something no fan of sci-fi shooters should miss out on. while the original Section 8 lacked ambition and came at a painful $60 price, Prejudice is a mere $15 and is only available through online download. And considering the content available; a 5 hour campaign, online multiplayer, and offline instant action, it is well worth it. The graphics for this game are astonishing considering that it is a XBL game. Whenever you overdrive through water, it splashes and glistens on the screen. The combat is a step up. You can not only choose your own gun, but also the type of ammunition. Same goes for your tools. As anyone who played the first game, you know that the campaign in the original was very lacking. A two hour game for an average gamer. The campaign in this is challenging and the voice acting sounds improved also. Overall, I can't recommend this enough to any FPS fan. While there have been a few crashes that I ran into, a patch was just released that took care of the general issues. Expand

    This game would be a 9 or a 10 if it wasn't for a couple of pretty major issues:

    1. Lack of a party system - The multiplayer part of this game runs just like on a PC, so it takes a little getting used to for the console crowd. It's basically hosted servers with auto balance enabled. So this means when you join your friends on a server it automatically puts you on the team with the fewest players and keeps the teams balanced. This completely ignores the fact that you want to play with your friends. You can switch sides, but only as long as it makes the teams even. Pretty annoying!!! We need a party system and the option to turn off auto balance.

    2. Crashing - The game crashes the xbox on average about once every hour or two. I'm talking a crash where you have to pull the power to the 360, you can't even press the power button to reset. It seems to be worse on certain maps, but is pretty consistent for both me and my buddies. 3. AA Spawn - mainly just a pet-peeve of mine, but if you spawn when no AA is in place then AA is placed you are guaranteed to die and there is not a damn thing you can do about it. If it's not there when you jump you shouldn't be able to be killed. Again not a major issue or bug but it's annoying.

    If these three pretty big issues were fixed this would be a 9 or 10 game easily. Its fun to play but can be annoying with the above issues.

It takes more to win this game then pointing the crosshair at your enemy's face and pressing the trigger (also described as "skill" by some people). If you don't wonna be seen, kill the sensor arrays. If you don't want to be locked on, drop a sensor jammer. Is your enemy using incinerate ammo? Upgrade your armor for more fire resistance! Are you constantly jammed? Jump into a mech and beat the crap out of them! Is a sniper sitting on a montain top guarded by an AA turret camping the map? Buff your armor with upgrades and jump on his head - problem solved. There are counter-measures for almost everything. Graphics are totally ok for a $15 game. I give it 8/10 because of AutoBalancing and the lack of a pre-game lobby. Expand

Chuck in a singleplayer and a horde-style mode and that is a game easily worth 1200 mspoints. The game does auto balance during play, but I think it's a necessary evil as it eliminates the cascade effect where losing players bail causing team mates to give up and bail also when they see their numbers drop (one flaw of BC2). Playing on full servers or with bots included makes this a rare occurrence. The "aimbot" is a counter for jetpacks and is a timed lock-on ability which has a cooldown timer, so only can be used sporadically. Expand
