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

UNPLAYABLE. DO NOT BUY. SecuROM DRM will not activate the game. The keys steam hands out are faulty, and both Valve and SEGA will give you the run-around. The best you can hope for is a credit from Valve, so best not spend the money in the first place. Wait for GOG to get it.

nil out of ten, couldn't even play - /10

This thread is an example the problems everyone has been having.

I'm actually pretty upset about this game not being playable. I had a copy of it for PS3 a few years ago, and it was mildly entertaining to fly around. The story isn't great in the least bit, but it has fun aspects to it. Well due to 3rd party DRM, I can't even play the game I purchased for nostalgia. 0/10 do not buy unless you plan on throwing away money.

Do not buy this game. I bought my copy back in September around the fall sale and to this day they have yet to solve the issue with the cd-key being invalid. Wrote to Steam, they told me they have no control over that, wrote to SecuROM they told me they have no control over that either, and finally wrote to Capcom and I have yet to get any sort of response from them. In the forums it seems some people got their issue fixed after a while, but there are still a lot of ppl like me who have contacted everyone involved and got no solution whatsoever. Beware of this game, and any other CAPCOM titles with secuROM.

I really like this game. It is a Fun 3rd Person Shooter and you have a Jetpack. This makes it even more interesting. The Story is not the greatest, but it is really fun to play. Totally recommend it!

Don't get me wrong the game is fun for what it is but the whole thing feels rushed to release.
The numerous amounts of bugs and errors I've encountered from the get go indicates the type of game it is.
The flying sections in the game are very enjoyable however the rest of the game such as gun to gun combat are almost pointless are you can simply run up to enemies and press E to one hit kill them.

I wouldn't recommend this game if you're looking for a good GAME to play, however if you like the novelty of flying like I do it's something you should consider looking into.

EDIT - I've recently finished the game and it feels very unfinished, the game ends suddenly with the final boss and plot of the story totally feeling cut off like they ran out of funding.

I'm loving this game. After a silly SNAFU with the securerom key that was fixed by capcom support, I can finally play it. It's like a hybrid of the new tomb raider and mass effect.

A game that is under-estimated! I maxed the graphics on my GIG heavy PC, played the game on my wall through projector; WELL, the results are good! They were wanting to make a film out of this with a few HARD HITTING names interested! Let's say so much, THEY liked it - so your curiosity MAY be stoked. It is SO good! I think I would'nt be dismayed with a sequel to this game! It's 3rd person, Nikolas Tesla is in the game (hello history). The story is deep enough for more-as I said earlier a sequel is welcome from my side! How does it play? Sometimes like a blend of SNIPER ELITE V2 or/and JUST CAUSE 2, only fantastical sci-fi (aliens in jungles with air-combat from ww1 and sometimes a little bit of the feel of TOMB-RAIDER [one of her weapons-the ak-47 like rifle] )!

Game on!

This game is horribly underated, sure the characters are dry and unemtional, but this game has something few other games have and that is combat freedom.

I could easily sum up the pros in one sentence: Verticle, and horizontal cover based third person shooter that can turn into an aircraft battle at the push of a button.

The reason it is so poorly rated is because it does have a feeling of being unfinished, like capcom started the game then abruptly had to sell what they managed to put together, which is dissapointing since it had so much potential.

Must say, that cd-key checker programm is poorly made by someone other than white man specie with untraditional sexual orientation. Can't even start that game. Expected better from Capcom.

I reeeeally don't know how I feel about Dark Void. Gameplay wise it's quite fun, it hasn't aged too bad graphically in 4 years... but Yahtzee from Escapist sumed it up quite nicely... Dark Void was the game that had disappointed him most in his reviewing career - not because it was bad, but rather because it was ambitious. In stretches it was very engrossing, innovative and fun, but in the end felt both too short and too unfinished, as if the developers had run out of money or time or will. It really is a shame, I really wanted this series to continue... Oh and the fantastic soundtrack (albeit pretty small) was composed by Bear McCreary, composer for Battlestar Galactica. I think I know where a great deal of the money went now... I only recommend this because I had fun playing it... it certainly won't be for everyone.
