About This Game

Dark Void™ is a sci-fi action-adventure game that combines an adrenaline-fueled blend of aerial and ground-pounding combat. Set in a parallel universe called "The Void", players take on the role of Will, a pilot dropped into incredible circumstances within the mysterious Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself swept into a desperate struggle for survival, joining forces with a rebel human group called The Survivors. Trapped in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth.
Dark Void’s unique combination of jet pack-booster aerial dog fighting and third-person combat brings a thrilling new gameplay dynamic to the third-person shooter experience. Taking 3D action to a whole new level, Dark Void’s unique vertical combat system allows players to dangle from thousand foot drops as they take cover and hurl enemies to their doom, bringing a whole new sense of tension and thrill to the player. Will is also equipped with a powerful rocket pack which allows for fierce in-air combat, hurtling through the Void at blistering speeds while shooting down anything that gets in his path.
  • Sci-Fi action/adventure combines aerial and on-foot combat for a totally unique third-person shooter experience
  • Will’s jetpack delivers total freedom of movement allowing players to race against UFOs in high-speed chases and rain death from above onto unsuspecting otherworldly foes
  • Speed and scale unmatched by any other action title: send Will zipping through tight corridors and then out into immense canyons and futuristic geoscapes
  • Gravity-defying vertical combat system, where moving up is the only way to bring your enemies down
  • Seemless transition between jetpack flight, ship-to-ship dog fighting and third-person shoot-em-up action all exists within the same level - not broken up into different "areas"
  • Huge bosses that require fast reflexes and aerial barnstorming maneuvers to defeat
  • Developed by Airtight Studios, a new group featuring team members from the Crimson Skies series of video games

Overview: Third Person Shooter

Ok here we go, I can't wait to play this....

*installing directx*

No worries standard procedure

*installing Physx*

No problem,

*You must restart the computer for the patch to take effect*

Ok, I understand how this works,


OK NOW FINALLY, let's get started, I'm so excited

*This software must be authenticated online prior to use. For activation a valid SERIAL and an active Internet connection is required. Please visit our support homepage for additional information: https://support.securom.com/PAunlock/?c=3000*

What the...... Um..alright.... *clicks ok*

*Please enter your SERIAL in the supplied text area and press ACTIVATE to unlock. This will connect to the license server via the Internet and request an unlock license. Press CANCEL to abort.*

*Enters serial key*, I'm sure everything is in order, can't have just anybody playing the game, got to make sure those pesky pirates don't steal....

* Activation process has been terminated

The SERIAL was not found in the database. Most likely the SERIAL has been entered incorrectly. Press BACK to retry activating (please verify the correct input of the SERIAL) or press CANCEL to abort. If the problem persists, please visit our support homepage for possible solutions: https://support.securom.com/PAunlock/?c=1200*

What the ♥♥♥♥ is this? Ok so I'll just check for a solution online...here we go...

In order to get the game to work:
A) Create a support ticket http://shop.capcom.com/store/capcomus/Content/pbPage.CapcomSupport2
B) Provide them with your key and proof of purchase
C) Wait
D) Wait more
E) Wait for confirmation that they key has been added, and launch the game.


I don't care if this game is the best videogame ever made in existence, in order to get it to work, you have to contact either capcom and/or securom and provide proof of purchase to get a valid serial key. This is just pathetic, Valve should remove this game or capcom should actually fix the problem.

Just to be clear, I am not the only one having this problem judging from all the reviews and the discussions on the forums. If you buy this piece of crap you do so at your own risk.

-----------------Heads up before review----------------------------------------------------------
This game has an issue with Securerom where if you buy it, and try to activate it will show you "activation failed" and deemed your cd-key invalid, claiming it is not in their databases. That is because, it isn't. You have to contact Capcom and give them a screenshot of the cdkey, and proof of purchase (A screenshot of the email steam sends when the game is bought). After doing this, you wait a day or two and try to install it again and everything should work beautifully.

If you went to Capcom, and nothing happens, try again, over and over until it does. It took me 3 tries but finally got the game to install. Below are the instructions to get your copy working if you run into the invalid cd-key issue.

1) Go to http://shop.capcom.com/store/capcomus/html/pbPage.capcom-support

2) Click on the "Contact Us" button under the search bar.

3) Explain your issue, something like "bought Dark Void, trying to install got invalid cdkey, etc"

4) Provide screenshots of your cd-key, and proof of purchase.

5) Wait.

If for some reason this method doesn't work, repeat until it does. Steam support can't/won't help you and the whole secure-rom team is probably crying in a room cause everyone hates them, so no point in trying to make contact for help.


Well I spent almost 8 hours playing this game, 3 which were spent trying to install it over and over due to the cd key issue. I don't feel like wasting more time on this so my review is short and to the point.

Graphics 8/10
It looks good for a game of 2010 (I am old, so it's weird to say it that way, but yah, for it's time the game holds up quite well)

Gameplay 2/10
You'll play the first level and that's basically it, no other elements are added to the gameplay maybe 2 or 3 different weapons and the upgrades for them and the jetpack. Overall the game is SUPER repetitive, making this game boring as hell. All the missions are the same "oh no, enemies, shoot them please" once the enemies are gone, that's it. Some levels have you running around for no reason only to trigger a "oh no, enemies again". If you enjoy repetitive gameplay, go for it, this game is for you, but you can just watch a video of youtube in loop, hold any sort of gamepad and try to play along like a child who is being tricked by his/her parents so they can go bone in peace. You'll save the money and won't feel as stupid as I do right now.

I played this game in the hardest difficulty by the way, and it was as hard as throwing a rock into a lake. So maybe sucking at games will raise the challenge for you. The last boss is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Seriously. I don't like to use the word ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ at all, and I am sorry for the last boss's relatives, but it was very disappointing, lame and just overall stupid.

Sound/Music 3/10
Umm... nothing memorable, just ♥♥♥♥♥♥ background music. Noticeable enough that you don't hear the sound of a piece of your soul dying while playing this game past lvl 1 and forgettable enough that you can actually sleep at night after the feeling of emptiness leaves your body before bed.

Story 3/10
I was going to give it a 1, but that's mean, and I've been mean enough already. The story is bad, just full of holes and the character development is nonexistent. The characters have names that you won't care about, there's a cameo of a cool scientist for like 2 mins total, and even then, they don't managed to properly include him in the overall development of the story.

I feel they hired dead fish to write this story, but since fish can't hold pencils or pens, they had to just wing it and interpret the smell of slimy scales under the sun into a filler story to get this game out there and ready to sell. If only they had hired a child capable of mumbling words this game would be entertaining enough to follow along till the end.

Replay value -1000/10
When you finish they game they give you an unlocked radar to find all the hidden treasures... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA omg. Nice one guys. That is the best April fools joke ever.

Overall - 3/10
This is not an average at all, I just felt like 3 is a nice number. ♥♥♥♥♥♥ enough to be under 5 but good enough to be above 2. At first I had the "don't buy this game cause you can't install it" review, but now I edited to say, don't buy this game cause it will make you dumb.

I mean it is entertaining for like 20 mins, so if you are ok with that, go for it. If not, please heed my advice:
Go outside and pick up a rock, throw it in any direction as far as you can, then close your eyes, count to 10 and go look for the rock. You'll have a lot of more fun than playing this crap, you'll play outside, you'll get some sunlight tan and who knows, you might hit a leprechaun or something and find some gold.

If the price of this game is $3.00 or less, buy it. I like to collect games, so why not. If you paid more than that, you are officially a sucker, like me.

Hey,at least you are not alone.

Don't buy this game. Don't buy it on Steam, because Capcom is honey-dickin Steam; the DRM that Capcom implemented is broken beyond being able to be used. Capcom put a broken game on Steam and is taking no responciblity, saying that "its Steeeeeeeeams fault because they are the retailer and thats how the law works". DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS, get a hold of it by some other means.
