Reviews for "DarkBase 2 - the Hive"

Good game!

& yes I agree, its even better than the first & so its worthy of a ten! But I can still point out some things that were a hinderer in the Game. First off, it seemed to be a little glitchy. When you'd hold down the fire button then move the cursor accidentally out of the screen, the gun would continue to shoot or the directional keys would get stuck until you would click on the window again so you could move or the direction your mouse is pointed would clear up the stuck view- all while a group of aliens is still tearing you up. & one last thing, The intro music? Its totally gay, lol. I'm not meaning to harsh your mellow, its just a suggestion to clear it up, maybe just put up an acoustic version or something.

Concept was good, but there are things lacking

Story: 7.0 / 10.0 I like how you went with the whole "who am i" amnesia route when starting the game, and how we (the players) later find out bits and pieces about our previous mission. But i must say, if you ARE going to go with that, don't just suddenly have a "eureka" moment just because she looked at the computer screen, gotta build up to it. The storyline was good although short (only saying this because i tried to play the bloody game multiple times on multiple computers/IE browsers and keeps freezing in the whole "the door closed behind me i'm going to die but i'm going to take them with me!" scene after i kill everything and the screen goes white and the sound loops.

Graphics: 7.3 / 10.0 Not exactly the most eye catching game out there, even though it's a flash game. The graphics mainly reminded me solely of "diablo" with the character sprites and all, the similar color scheme corridor after corridor, but it served the game well in it's atmospheric purpose, but again, as i've said, not the most eye catching graphics.

Gameplay: 8.5 / 10.0 Everything i wanted to do, it did. plain and simple. I wanted to headshot the bugger, i did. If i wanted to change weapons it did. The list goes on, the only complaint i had though was. The other guns besides the pistol were close to if not completely useless. I beat the game solely on pistoling, the machine gun although plentiful in bullets is horrible when it comes to mobs and the shotgun was almost useless unless close range which will result in a few bites and scratches along the way. (I have beaten the game with all 4 and pistol was by far the most useful.) And as many have mentioned, don't have dialogue when we're in the middle of fighting, i was ready to shoot the bugger when the aliens first dropped down but was frozen in place due to dialogue and once i clicked it away i was struck. There is a time and a place for it, like when she's alone (like how you did it with the computer screens that was perfect.)

Overall: 7.6 / 10.0 It's very good i highly recommend it, it shows you put a lot of effort into it, and i'll be waiting to see more works from this author.


You know I cant really find much to fault it for. Maybe a a slightly better color scheme. This is over all a very good game.
