About This Game

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.

Binary Domain is SEGA's foray into the 3rd Person Cover Shooter genre. It is a roughly 10 hours long game with an enjoyable action movie writing and presentation. As Sgt Dan Marshall, part of a multinational elite anti-robot team, you will battle hordes of military robots and crazy mecha bosses while attemptint to stop a rogue corporation building illegal AI robots. The game is a thoroughly enjoyable affair that I would strongly recommend to gamers who enjoy the shooter genre in general. It basically takes the Gears of War formula, and improves on it with more gadgets, weapons, weapon upgrades, voice commands and a squad trust mechanic that ultimately alters the game's ending depending on which squad members trust you to what degree. This would also be a good point to note its shortcomings, I guess: The voice command system is rather problematic (but thankfully totally optional), the cover mechanics obviously needed a lot more polish (running into cover does not automatically lean you against it like Gears of War, and I found myself desperately trying to get in or out of cover more times than I would have liked), the enemies are bullet sponges (but that usually is not much of a worry because it has been handled well; they are armored and as you shoot you peel off armor plates, concentrated fire on specific limbs can result in dismemberment) and the campaign is a bit short. All in all, it's a great experience, a totally underrated game and a solid recommendation from me. Two thumbs up.

This game...Is surprisingly fun and plays around with some interesting concepts!
Don't get me wrong the gameplay is OKAY but the real gem is the story, characters are surprisingly solid and actually have personality and there are some twists that aren't completely obvious 3 hours before they happen. The world is quite beautiful. Because it's a given from the start, robots that think they're human experience emotion not even knowing they're robots themselves even sensing like humans and able to suffer. Tell me that's not an interesting topic to be centered around
Voice commands are an interesting idea but...yeah...they're quite bad

Dead honest I got this in a humble bundle and let it dust in the backlog, now I regret not playing it sooner
Definitely pick this up on a sale it's worth it

Oh boy this game has a lot of problems.
A lot of the mechanics are just janky und seem unfinished. Especially the voice-commands just make you feel ridiculous, when you start shouting at your monitor. Also the shooting tends to get quite repetetive after a while.

But, that said, it does have some interesting ideas, like the loalty-system, and a story worth checking out.
I think people who played "Spec Ops: The Line" for the story only can give this game a chance as well. Even though I don't think the game does hold up as well on the technical side.

I'd say get it on sale.

This game is F##king awful. At first you might think it's OK, good setting, interesting wepons. But then you discover the boring gameplay, insanely bad controls and non stop cut scenes and sections where you just walk.
Be amazed by missions such as shoot the ship but stupid flying robots get in your way. It never stops no matter how many you shoot.
You will be stunned by boss battles such as pick up ammo crates while i giant metal gorilla kills you (then you drop the ammo) only to be made better by a useless team member (stunningly bad AI) who says "Tell me if you need ammo, but there is no option to ask her for ammo ????

Never, ever buy this giant piece of crap.

Just take the concept of Terminator, and make it a lot more fun and interesting. Binary Domain is a game everyone should play.

Great graphics, amazing sound, really likable characters, intense gameplay, outstanding enemy AI and physics. And even addictive multiplayer.

A better question would be, why NOT to buy/play this game?

- Any last words?
- Yeah, tell your mamma I loved her

In short about the game
I was thinking should I buy this game or not, but It's so godd*mn worth it

Storyline
I can't explain how awesome it is, but campaing will never let you boring, so many unexpected moment, few ending, and a good choice of characters. Storyline written very good, and I will not mistake if I say, that the best story line I ever saw (I played a lot of games, as people saying "I saw a lot of sh*t")

Characters
I really like characters, everyone special, and charismatic.
There is a "trust level" for every character, wich is affect on walkthrough, so if you shot them, trust level will fall, if you will help them, it will go up.
(ATTANTINON,SPOILERS, DONT LOOK THERE IF YOU DONT WANT ANY SPOILERS)
I like that British guy, because of his accent, and I like Cain, really good character
(ITS FINE NOW, NO SPOILERS)

Gameplay
Nice battle system, hide and shot(maybe because I was playing on hard difficulty), I like a boss battles. But they all different, but battle tactic still the same.

Multiplayer
Well, I didnt play it, because it is dead(no one is playing)

Total, what we have?
Very good game with dinamic gameplay, and awesome storyline.

I'm glad to give it 11/10 excellent hours of playing this game.

Better than most of those revered AAA titles. Solid shooting plus a tad generic "i need a robot to examine my humanity" story.

This game feels like an unfinished Mass Effect. It has a great potential. To be honest, the best thing in Binary Domain is a story. The second thing that saves it is a humour. Gameplay feels ok, I hardly can find something to complain about. But controls are wierd.
Binary Domain became interesting for me after the first story video during the Chapter I. And while you can find a ton of strange things in events.. I can say that story is a strong part of this game. Also it has multiple endings and memorable characters.
Buy this game while it is on sale. As for a rating, I can give it a 7/10. Not a masterpiece, but a solid product.

The true objective of this game is to make Big Bo your Big Bro.

Also there's a robot that's French which is cool.

Good shooting with awesome destructible robots, great futuristic art, an intriguing story and the best robot companion in videogames since HK-47, highly recommended.

Ironically, for a game about the eradication of androids posing as humans, Binary Domain is itself a form of replicant. It convincingly apes the mechanics and behaviours of the best shooters on the market, but its augmentations feel noticeably forced and artificial. Having said that, shearing through robots in a Neo Tokyo setting makes for a nice change of pace within a genre typically populated by alien antagonists and Eastern European enemies, and in all but name this is essentially the best Terminator game ever made. The voice command and trust systems are interesting experiments that yield slightly underdeveloped results, but ultimately Binary Domain doesn't hang its hat on them even without the gimmicks this is an enjoyable albeit derivative shooter that any self-respecting sci-fi fan should check out.

A Very Enjoyable 3rd person shooter. Must buy if on sale.


It could be a little longer though, and I wish there was a sequel....


Oh, and forget the voice commands.

Great GREAT game. I really did not expect it to be a solid shooter. I had a couple of my companions die and will be sure to play through it again, to avoid the tears.

I killed a ♥♥♥♥ing Godzilla sized robot all alone, then my teammate complained that I did a very bad job... so I insulted her and now she don't trust me anymore...

Still an amazing game, if you liked the movie "I, robot" you should like this game too.

A very underrated game.
