Cant even play this, live went down and this was only a multiplayer game... not worth a dollar.

This honestly needs to be taken down from steam, there is no reason why this should still be up.

Pros+
Graphics are pretty good
Clean Menu and Layout and Hud
Controls are simple and easy
Black Ops single player mode is pretty good
Nice selection of weapons
Decent Music and Gun Sounds

Cons-
No vs bots in private match mode
Game is dead for PVP
Only one PVE Mode avaible to play vs bots
No quick save for single player mode

...........................................

Bottom line: I recommend you get this game , its cheap price and fun for single player mode. Shame they didn't add more bot modes though. 7/10

Buy a candybar because this thing uses windows live gaming. I'd much rather hammer rusty nails into my forhead with a small tipped hammer than to try and link all the stupid garbage accounts you need to play this game, which isn't even 1/10,000,000% good. Infact, this game is linked to cancer causeing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ game devs.

Good game but no save feature. When you get close to the end of a mission, if you are not perfect you have to start from the begining, what a dummy move. It's only a dollar but a trip.(A scam like Res. evil rev 2 biohaz rev2. no fix)

Mostly MP with a sort of bot assault mode that can be played single player.

It was hard to get a game going even when the game was newer, and it's completely empty now.

Also has GFWL, which will be shut down soon.

Another dead MP game from which to STAY AWAY.

This game should not be sold any longer. It REQUIRES GFWL to do ANYTHING which no longer exists.. So.. no multiplayer, no co-op.. no single player.. nothing. Go buy some candy with your dollar instead, because you'll get no use with it here.

Worst FPS I have ever played. There was no one to play multiplayer with and the single player was extreamly boring and straight forward. Not to mention Windows Live. I would not download this game ever again and I recommend you don't too.

I brought it... I installed it.... I played it with a friend... and then I removed it.

It is alright to play it really is. You play with a friend, you run and gun and there is the fun but that is it. £3.99... More like £1 and worth it below but not above and I paid full preorder price so it is a major let down.

This offers nothing new on the FPS market, but a simple run gun game built on source... I am not sure if the game is but it really really does feel like a source engine game like counter strike.

Everything about the game is okay, nothing special.

Requires Games For Windows Live - a service THAT NO LONGER IS SUPPORTED AND DOES NOT WORK.

Ergo, this game can not be made to work and buying it is a waste of money. It should be removed from STEAM *ASAP*.

Game was okay. The game is ment to be played with 4 players but its pretty tough to find players when the game runs on GFWL. AI are pretty tough and have really good aim from the distance they are shooting you from. I would only get the game if you have friends to play with. Online mode is completly dead.. I would avoid the game and just play Black light retribution. Which is a really popular free to play game

Pros
Team work is a MUST


Cons
GFWL
To many glitches

A fast paced first person shooter with an unimanginable amount of customization. From stocks to barrels and sights to key chains that boost your character. Large amount of maps and game modes ( but the game mode people play is team deathmatch really) to have fun in.

This game pretty good if people play. The game is simple setup where you have x-ray vision for few seconds or just shoot people in face. Can also use emp style grenades to confuse enemy with x-ray. No female characters so x-ray vision has limited use.

Like I say this is a good game if people play. However, people not play. Server always dead really so you are spending all evening watching lobby. Sometimes I use pen to write pretend names on my screen but computer too clever. Game do not start unless real people join.

You can play coop mode with friends or more likely alone. This is not bad for a while but you only have limited number of maps, and enemies always same. After a while you find X Factor interesting. When X Factor interesting you need new hobby.

Although the servers are dead since the launch of Retribution, the single player function still works and runs very similar to how the minigames in the F.E.A.R. series.

It's pretty much a less refined version of Retribution without all the wallet warriors.

It's five ♥♥♥♥ing dollars, that's literally half an hour of my wage. Jesus Christ on stick, just ♥♥♥♥ing get it already. A single pack on Retribution is more than that.

Blacklight Tango Down is the first in the series of Blacklight games; currently there are two, and this is the prequel to Blacklight Retribution.

In terms of gameplay, this game is amazing despite multiplayer being dead. For $1 Black Ops; the semi-campaign mode of this game is quite worth it. The AI seems to actually be better than the AI in Blacklight Retribution's Onslaught mode and while it lacks the content of Blacklight Retribution, it is still quite a classic game. Only downside is G4WL, but other than that it's still a playable gem.
