Binary Domain is a sci-fi TPS which has the basic gameplay elements of common TPS in it. It has also a few gimmicks which trys to improve the gameplay and mostly this works very well ( medi-kits, communication between team-mates, weapon & player-upgrades). But all in all this does not help a lot to improve the replay-ability. Gladly the games strength is the story-telling. It doesn't take itself very serious and it has a japanese touch in how it presents you the game. If you like old-school sci-fi movies like IRobots, Terminator or Blade Runner, this game is definitely for you!
Beside the campaign you get also a Versus mode, which no one is playing anymore. It wasn't anything special, so you did not miss anything...
It has also to that a co-op mode ( horde mode ). Which is one of the best parts of the game and my personal highlight of it. In this game mode you have to survive in teams (1-4 players) for 50 rounds. The further you get, the more important is Teamplay and Resource-management.
The game has also a few issues, like voice recognition but since you can turn this feature off it isn't necessary to count this as a contra point. There are also other issues for some user happening but they can be fixed by discovering Steam Forums or asking Doctor Google. There are also a few people complaining about a weird mouse-movement. it is true that it irritatates a few people BUT it is definitelly nothing that breakes the game and you can get used to it.
Let us sum up. You get an awesome story-line that sci-fi fans can enjoy very well, so long they do not take the story too serious. The Multiplayer is dead and the horde mode is for everyone who seeks for a challenge for himself and a few other players. If you are a sci-fi, TPS -fan or just want to experience a hard horde mode, GET IT!
Result: 4/5 - Over Average
