Binary Domain is an original squad-based shooter by Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creator behind some of SEGA's most well-known video game franchises, including the critically acclaimed Yakuza series. Binary Domain puts players in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle for humanity in a robot-invaded 2080 Tokyo. Fighting through the derelict lower levels of the city, players control an international peace-keeping squad that soon starts to question their surroundings and the choices they make. Are the robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?
Binary Domain's central theme of life is key to the way the innovative AI system is being developed. The highly advanced AI will make the battlefield a more compelling experience than ever before and players will have to plan their moves strategically and carefully in order to progress through the hostile environments of the game.
Binary Domain takes you to Japan in the year 2080, where you'll need to regain control as a robotic threat threatens to take over, leaving humanity obsolete in this intense 3rd person squad based shooter from the brilliant mind of Toshiri Nagoshi
As Dan Marshall, you and your squad must rise to the challenge and stop the mechanical menace before it's too late. But when is too late?
You'll encounter highly intelligent enemies that will have you thinking on your feet as they try to outmanoeuvre you at every turn as they try to stop you and your team. You'll need to think fast and shoot faster as you guide your earn through real-time moral decisions and earn their trust in order to lead them more effectively.
Tokyo times: You'll see two very different Tokyos, the run down and decaying slums below and clean and wealthy new city above
Consequence system: Even when you're under fire, you'll need to make moral decisions that will affect the outcome of mission
Procedural damage: You'll need to find your enemies weaknesses to take them out more effectively as your enemies will adapt the way they fight as you damage non-essential areas of their bodies
Weapons and skills: You may have the most advanced weapons, but without the right skills you won't be able to use them effectively
Complimenting Binary Domain's Single player campaign you'll find an impressive multiplayer with different modes and Character classes available for you to sink your teeth into

A very solid 3rd person shooter with a memorable story and cast of characters. Tearing up robots with your assault rifles is endless fun that never gets boring and the story takes plenty of turns through interesting and memorable scenarios to make the whole thing a pretty worthwhile ride. There's a lot to like here, so if you have the time and the cash, and setting appeals to you, dive right in.

A solid third person shooter. Binary Domain is set in a bleak future in Tokyo, where humans have taken to war against robots. The game is a squad based shooter. As a result the gameplay has some tactics to it as you have to make decisions that will effect the rest of your team. Do right by your team and they will do the same for you (and of course vice versa). The enemies are varied, the set pieces are quite good. The story is a little over the top, but entertaining nevertheless. The multiplayer is competent, but the single player is the games real strength. Good fun for shooter fans.

Very Underrated game, nothing like blowing the head off a robot and watch it attack other robots. Played through it three times, Its a steal for the price.

Binary Domain is a fairly traditional 3rd person shooter combined with a fairly crazy Japanese story. Combine that with a quite strange team loyalty mechanic and you have a recipe for an entertaining video game. The mechanics are quite tight, the action is frequent, the polish is not as high as it could be. Over all, still recommended.

Binary Domain isnt the most polished game out there but this game has it moments you may not like most of them but there are things that will stick with you even after you complete this one and it has a pretty decent multiplayer obviously the most fun part of this one but at its price its pretty good all round
