About this developer Zombie Studios
It is difficult to believe, but before "Zombie" made a series of game Spec Ops - the very one which now creates a wonderful sequel to The Line . If you look closely, you can find one game series Delta Force ( Task Force Dagger . Never heard of? We, too), two games based on the feature films "Saw" and a dozen lesser-known projects. We even feel sorry for "Zombikov" - a nondescript studio to present difficult.

brief story Blacklight: Tango Down
The most important obstacle that stands between you and the shooter with a strange name Blacklight: Tango Down , - a terrible emptiness in the game servers. In the PC-version of the multiplayer fun playing so few people that have unwittingly "adjust" under the North American natural time and wait for the night, when there are the first online players.
In Russia the game (so far) has not been formally published, so the only way - to buy her a crooked service Games for Windows Live, a full-fledged paying $ 20 (600 rubles). For the game, which boasts the West to its low price tag - not too much a budget option for purchase. Here, of course, blame the difference in pricing. "AAA shooter for 20 bucks! - Shout advertising slogans. - No, seriously! AAA shooter for 20 bucks. And we have a comic strip based on, and soon we'll shoot the film. Probably. "
A normal person who is waiting for a multiplayer only Tango Down a decent substitute if you do not Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 , at least, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 , probably at first will not be disappointed. Managing a comfortable, worn hero in terms of speed Predator, and a strip of "experience" is filled with pleasure in killing, and Headshots per help teammates - just like adults. Over time, however, you begin to suspect something.
First, why your team drove to the base of some one and a half and you always disabled, for the fifth time, kill as soon as you revived? The answer is simple: Zombie Studio slept through the last ten years in the freezer, because the game Blacklight: Tango Down , dear friends, the fixed spawn. It works just awful as it sounds: one team closes another at its base (several symbolic fortifications fixed turrets, from which no good), that is infinite and infinitely reviving dying - and you're lucky just to those who have time to quickly grab the initiative and go watch the enemy base. Lousy design cards that situation only worse. Incidentally, the levels for some reason, there are inscriptions in Russian (which symbolizes the plot, which, in archaic traditions, presented in the accompanying user guide).
Blacklight runs on the third version of Unreal Engine, which automatically means a very humane system requirements and a good picture. The main difference between the PC-version is not in the schedule (it is the same as on consoles), and the built-in service, Games for Windows - Live, not too well-known in the background monopolistki Steam. Who knows, maybe, come Tango Down on the more popular platform - does not suffer from it would then lack of players.
The most popular game situation in the Blacklight - screen out other players.
In addition to the inscriptions in Russian, is also present in the game hype of popular brands.
"Single", combined with the cooperative mode, without exaggeration, is terrible.
They took BRAVO
The most offensive that Zombie Studios is really serious about another important aspect of modern multiplayer shooter - customization. Variants of ammo - the sea, and each weapon can be upgraded. You can improve the quality of gunshot, hanging special charms that dangle ridiculous on the rifle in the game ... But here, the surface creeps imbalance: SMG-gun assault is much stronger and even sniper rifles (!), And from the regular gun to kill someone is almost impossible .
Could not even corporate innovation Blacklight , which distinguishes a game from a simple clone of Modern Warfare , - a special visor, which can be turned on, even through the walls to see enemies, ammo and medical kits. The problem is that, when activated by HRV (Hyper Reality Visor), the player automatically becomes unarmed and completely open to enemy fire. Experience - from the category of stupid.
YOUR TEAM LOST
The game has a lot of modes, but they are the most that neither is standard. Defmatch, defmach team, capture the flag, the battle for survival - all slightly disguised with new names, which at first confused. Of special note is peeped in Call of Duty Mode Black Ops, designed for cooperative transmission (although you can try it and it alone). Everything is very, very bad: stupid and weak enemies running out from around corners, shooting a monotone and no co-operative elements - there is, perhaps, timspik. Play the same in all of this one - a perversion, which bothers a few minutes.
