    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!

Sad to say not long after its release there has been a MASSIVE drop in players which is really disappointing if your looking to play conquest or assault.... you can still get a good game of coop.

I spent about 3 hours this evening playing the conquest mode with only one hiccup, but that was Comcast's fault. I really like that there doesn't seem to be even a single worthless weapon, and that even starting out fresh at level 1, if you're a more skilled player than someone else, you will kill them regardless of what equipment they've unlocked. It's always bothered me that FPS games as of late have all prescribed to the "find or unlock the biggest insta-kill weapon with the least accuracy requirement and spam it" methodology to firefights, and I'm very pleased that this game does not do that. It rewards teamwork, strategy, and creative deployable/orbit drop placement. The lock-on feature, while present, is not overdone or overpowered, as you can only lock on to a person for a very short period of time, and there is a cooldown between uses of the lock-on feature, and you cannot be killed by hit-scan weapons (from a single person) during the amount of time that the lock-on actually holds. Sniper rifles, rockets, etc which actually have a travel time will miss even while locked on if the person is actively trying to evade your weapons fire. Vehicles and the mechs are very tough to take out on foot, but since absolutely anyone can drop deployable turrets, they can easily be brought under control.
    The environments and characters are pretty, but not overdone, and it seems Timegate actually figured out that a good game is good because its easy to pick up, fun to play, and hard to be great at. There was one minor issue I did find with clipping while crouching, where sometimes (not very often) if you're in extremely jagged terrain you will get "stuck", though all you have to do to free yourself is stand up and move. All in all, if you like FPS games where actual skill matters more than what weapons you have and you enjoy a good firefight where target priority and tactics are important, you wont regret buying this (unless you don't understand system requirements and have an underpowered machine, and that is your fault, not the game's)

    The people who made this game weren't good at what they did. The fact that the studio has since shut down is testament to the fact.
