Acerca deste jogo

THE MACHINE AGE HAS BEGUN in this immersive and atmospheric squad-based shooter in which you need to regain control of a futuristic Tokyo from an emerging robotic threat.

Set in 2080, the story starts when Dan Marshall and his squad are sent to bring the robotic community under control as they begin to infiltrate society and slowly take over undetected, leaving humans redundant in their wake.

Thrilling encounters with highly intelligent robotic enemies require you to think tactically, make challenging, real-time moral decisions and build up trust with your team mates in order to guide your squad to safety and success.

Key Features:

  • A NEW TAKE ON FUTURISTIC TOKYO - Experience dual layered Tokyo with a run down and derelict lower city and a clean and affluent upper city.
  • THE CONSEQUENCE SYSTEM - Under the pressures of battle every action, every choice and every word affects everything.
  • PROCEDURAL DAMAGE - Fully destructible and highly resilient robots adapt to the damage they sustain encouraging you to analyse each enemy, find their weaknesses and dispose of them in the most efficient way.
  • WEAPON MODIFICATION AND SKILL SELECTION - Alongside a full armoury of unique weapons, put emphasis on the skills that will benefit you.

In a world where Terminators are mass produced, and nobody even knew they existed, your job is to find out who's behind this and put a stop to it...

Story: 8/10 SEGA... publishing a shooting game? WHAT?! Okay, first off, Binary Domain's story starts off pretty standard, Japan turns out to be producing human-like robots which violates the law, and it's your job to find proof and bring the distrubutor to justice, although along the way there are a LOT of twists and turns. It makes you think of what'd happen if we DO get to that point where man and machine aren't distinguishable from one-another... As many others say it's like playing a movie. It sort of drags you in to being the badass "Survivor" that everyone loves to hate. The world itself is pretty interesting, a futuristic Neo-Tokyo style, and pretty much all your enemies are robots! Or "Scrap-heads" in this case. I've just finished the story myself, and clocked in about 12 hours of Steam time with it. I may have to go through parts of it again because there are actually multiple endings. Whew, man things get heavy. The diolouge itself is kind've mediocre, but there are some good jokes and one-liners that'll make you chuckle, and the characters don't stand out too much, but this game doesn't take itself too seriously, and it makes it better for it.

Gameplay: 6/10 The gameplay can be frustrating if you don't set up your controller right, turn the sensitivity down a notch, make sure your buttons are set up, and don't bother trying to use a mic, just keep it off. It may be a feature, but it's poorly innovated in this game, sorry. You can give orders just fine with the buttons. But people complaining about the gameplay probably haven't fine-tuned their settings, if you aren't lazy, you can make this game just as playable as any other TPS. I hope you like assault-rifles though, that'll be your main weapon most the time but you can switch it up. The gameplay can be a bit repetitive, though there are sections that change things up a bit. (e.g. sliding down a wall, riding on jet-skis) Often times it felt like an off-rails shooter, since it's completely linear with a few hidden things to collect if that's your thing. The bosses are kind've interesting too, there are a few ones that switch things up from standard run n gunning, though most of them can be powered through as long as you don't take too many hits, they hit HARD! So it's a lot of evasion/cover running around trying not to get hit, while turning to aim and shoot back at the enemy. And just when I thought I haven't seen any new enemies in a while, a new type showed up to keep things a bit more interesting, it is kind of a thrill-ride wanting to know what the heck's gonna happen next, while being a part of the action to keep things moving. There are even multiple endings which are dependent on your trust levels with your teammates. Unfortunately, the online is dead, so if you're looking for the next multiplayer experience, you'd best move along.

Overall: 7/10 If you like Third person shooters, even if you aren't a fan of them, but you like things like robots, Japan, technology, you'll like this game, it's a fun ride, and for 15 bucks, it'll keep you entertained more than the story of the latest COD, that's for sure. I had to write a review because this game is actually pretty unique, I wish there were more like it, and more polished out there.

Let's turn the way-back machine to...oh..2 and 1/2 years ago?

http://www.the-nextlevel.com/review/360/binary-domain/
This was my review of Binary Domain on the X360. In my eyes it was one of the best third-person shooters ever made.

I finally got around to beating the PC version.
My opinion of the game hasn't changed much.

First off, the online-play is unfortunately quite dead (due to lack of players). It's not a huge loss in the competitive aspect, but Survival mode was pretty solid.

Secondly, the port does have some issues. Fixes are available (check the community hub) for most if not all of them. Still, off a fresh install with a 360 pad I had absolutely no problems. Well, aside from sometimes forgetting what button does what due to lack of controller prompts.

Typically when I "re-review" a game, I either make some discovery, some hidden quality I never noticed before. Other times I find some new flaws, or determine elements that have not aged well. Game criticism is a constantly-evolving process, and even the classics are revisited. Binary Domain isn't an old game, however it is something of a rare breed. A Japanese-developed 3rd-person mecha-shooter? The only other title that immediately comes to mind is Vanquish (also a great game, fingers crossed it hits the PC soon). On the other hand, it is a 3rd-person shooter, and shares many commonalities with a huge number of games released this generation.

All that said, I believe Binary Domain is a standout title. This is one of the few shooters I would pick to represent the best of its era. Aside from featuring a fantastic campaign, with great pacing, memorable encounters, and incredible mechanics, this game also delivers on the "sure...if it's good...then why not?" stuff like plot, characters, and music. The art and sound direction are also superb. The voice-recognition? Well...that definitely doesn't hold up. It was a cute gimmick at the time of release, but little more than that.

So it's like I said, my opinion of BD hasn't changed much. Maybe I should come back to the game in a decade or so, determine if the game can be considered a true classic. Some games actually get better with age. Aspects that might appear dated, actually give the game its identity, making it something truly special. But..eh...nevermind this is just silly.

Binary Domain is an excellent shooter.
It's usually dirt-cheap.
Hell, you probably already own it.

Just play it already.

I thought that the game was good. The story, the graphics and the voice command feature was done well. I thought the keyboard and mouse controls were awful though. The game seemed to be made with controller in mind. Buy it if you like 3rd person shooters.

Good 'ol Binary Domain, one of the funnest games i never expected. I you ever watched the film "I Robot" and wanted to be Will Smith's character, then this game is as close as you'll get. It has a great storyline, with really good visuals (THOSE cityscapes/characters!), wonderful ambient sound and music (lots of floating vehicle sequences!). It even has a little love story goin' on, with a little bit of a "Mass Effect 2 Shepard/Miranda" feel to it, except replace Miranda with Faye.

Overall, definitely recommended, even at full price.

I don't know what I expected going into this game. Maybe a mediocre game with laughable dialogue and good enough action to keep me interested. Instead, I think I got one of my suprise favorite games this year.

From the get-go, you'll realize how similar it is to Gears of War. Even the font looks the same for the HUD. And you'd be partly right. It does cover-based third-person shooting pretty competently. What I really enjoy is the story. Right from the get-go, it establishes the world with its "Hollow Children", and, oddly enough, it feels natural. Being the makers of Yakuza, a franchise well-known for its story, I'm not too suprised. Maybe what sells it to me is the voice acting. They could've sent any old B-Team dubbers to pick this up, but instead we get Grade-A performances from Travis Willingham, Laura Bailey, and Troy Baker. Really, there isn't a person I can pick that was awful. It's kind of jarring that they use Japanese dialogue for the police (Which I enjoyed) but switch him to English when he talks to the party. And Johnny Yong Bosch trying to keep an accent with that was kind of strange, but almost endearing.

But this is a game, right? You're not here for the story! You want to shoot lots of scrap-heads! And that is also a fantastic time due to the limb system. Having tactics to maybe shoot approaching robots in the legs to slow them down while shooting heads off another group to start infighting makes the fighting unique to the genre. You will fight a lot of the same humanoid bots, but there still is a suprising amount of enemy variety, not to mention the boss fights. I was not expecting so many different boss fights, but they are certainly enjoyable.

One of the main advertised features of the game was voice commands, but honestly I didn't use them. My microphone is garbage, so that might have had something to do with the game not recognizing anything. You can opt to play without it, and I didn't feel very limited. There's a simple command list for your squad that does it's job. The affection system is interesting, and I was engaged in trying to max out my teammates. That might eventually lead you to min/max that stuff, but I recommend playing it blind the first time to see what outcome you take.

On a port scale, it looks stunning. I don't know about PC controls because I'm casual scum who plays with a controller, but that in itself was an enjoyable experience. No issues with inputs and all that.

I didn't try multiplayer. I don't even know if the servers are still up at this point, or if it's local like Space Marine. Apologies.

I'm almost a little worried giving this a glowing recommendation. I went in expecting schlock (Which it does feel kind of B-Movie sometimes- in a good way), or an unplayable mess, but I got a really engaging story and really enjoyable gameplay. Pick it up, and decide for yourself.

This was bought on a whim, without knowing anything about the game.

What I got was a pretty run of the mill third person shooter.

I also got a surprisingly good story, with interesting characters and interactions.

This game is the winner of my 2014 worst PC controls award. I found multiple bugs before the game finished telling me the controls, and there was no obvious way to turn off mouse acceleration. Your squad commands are supposed to be given using voice recognition. All the convenience of QWOP, with none of the polish. 0/10 unplayable.

This game is really weird.
Well, it's SEGA we're talking about, so they DO know what they're doing. Non the less it seems like they totally didn't, at some stages of the game.
Most of it is really, and I mean REALLY GREAT, but on the other hand a lot of it is pure junk. just straight up garbage.

The controls are wonderful, for the most part.
you do get the occasional "I didn't mean to do that, you ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!" thing, but hey, all games have those moments. Besides that, sometimes you just wonder why they assigned certain movements to the space bar and some to the e' key.

The action is really fun and keeps you on your toes without being overwhelming with mess....but sometimes you are.

To me, the game went up a couple of notches after a few hours of playing. Took it quite a while to go from "OMG WTF?!" to "Ok, I'm really diggin' this!"

NOW.....the story and cut scenes........OH MY GOOOOOOOOD ARE THEY BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's like they picked up the book "Every movie cliche ever" and just went on a mission to mark each and every one of those cliches.
There are so many cut scenes and boring meaningless dialogues, I got to a point, quite early in the game, where I decided I won't bother with them anymore. they are SO plentyfull, long, boring and just stupid that it becomes unbearable. Also, it seems like a lot of the dialogues were meant to educate us and are derived from current events in the world, which is ok for younger players, I guess.

All in all, I totally recommend sticking to it through some of the worst levels I've ever played in a modern game to get to the REAL fun.
oh, and, of course, BY ALL MEANS, skip the cut scenes!

After you get over the fact that it can't tell you what all of the keys that you're meant to be pressing actually are, the underlying story is absolutely rivetting!

The gameplay will either charm or repulse you, but for me it's just what the doctor ordered. Its fairly easy going gameplay and survival techniques make it great for new players and professionals alike and the story with all of its plot twists will keep you coming back for more.

I love it!

Definitely worth playing especially since it's often on sale. The voice recognition is crap but the dialogues themselves are pretty good and the characters are interesting. There is a good replayability since you can replay the scenes with different sidekicks for a slight change of storyline.

I saw reviews of this game when it came out and thought it was pretty cool. After a while, I bought it on Steam and boy, what a game it is!

Binary Domain takes on the mechanics of classic Gears of War and throws in a highly-engaging storyline with some great character development and nice twists in a futuristic setting that Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke would dream up. It's got some great run-and-gun mechanics, annoying but challenging boss fights, and manages to switch up things pretty nicely every once in a while. You'll be shooting behind cover, then speeding on jet-skis, firing from a car, using an anti-tank turret, and even hack into one of the big robots to let all hell loose! The action is so intense that you'll constantly be on edge and run straight into fights with your adrenaline pumping.

The game suffers from a few flaws, namely the voice recognition system, certain UI peeves and a bit of stiffness with regards to controls. However, this is in no way a deal-breaker. What you have here is an extremely fun game that you will be looking forward to once you wrap yourself around some of its nuances and ignore a few of the systems.

I'd highly recommend any action-game afficionado to pick this one up either on sale or through a bundle. It's a game that you definitely will not regret adding to your collection.

This is a game to play more for the story than the actual gameplay. While it's not limiting, it is quite challenging because Sega thinks "Normal" difficulty is the equivalent to the hardest ♥♥♥♥ing difficulty for any other game at times. There are definitely some areas that need improvement, such as team AI and map layouts. At times the game can get frustrating, especially on boss battles because you're thrown into the fray usually without any heads up on what to do because they liked to have the game cutscenes and actual gameplay smoothly transition. Your team members often walk in the line of fire and get shot by you, causing them to distrust you(although later this doesn't really matter much because you get plenty of opportunities to regain it). However, aside from a few minor, yet aggravating details, this is a fun game to play more for the story than the gameplay itself. It gets repetitive after the first 1/3 of the game with the exception of boss battles slightly, however as I said this is a game you play for the story and not the actual gameplay itself.


In short, grab it when it's on sale, go for a quick playthrough for the story and enjoy one of Sega's few games outside of Sonic!
