So, has anyone here played Area 51? Not the old arcade, but the new FPS by Midway.

A few minor spoilers start around here
Basiclay, a virus breaks loose in the base and a Hazardous Materials tea
goes in to check it out, but they go missing, so they send in another HazMat team to rescue the last one. You play as Ethan Cole, voiced by David Duchovny, the man who plays Fox Mulder on the X-Files, the team specialist. Before long, you realize this virus is mutating the hosts into monstrous mutants who live only to eat, kill threats and pass on the virus. And before long, your eam is picked off until you're alone, only to find the lost team, who are almost immediately destroyed by a gigantic mutant creature, leaving you alone. You are infected with the virus, but you do not become a monster, you're blood type has a certain trait about it that allows you to activate the virus at will, but at a cost. The virus could completely take over you at any point that you turn it on. Soon, you discover a deep, dark, evil secret: The Illuminati and Greys are working in conjunction to relese the virus on Earth, and develop a monster to use as weponry against the human populace so as to take over the world. You as the only survivor this deep in Area 51 must stop it yourself while keeping the virus under control.
End minor spoilers

Beating the game unlocks the hard mode. I'm working on hard now, but it's a great game. Throught the game, you can collect secret videos between the Illuminati/NSA's consultant to the Greys and the Nazi doctor brought here by Paperclip who created the virus and worked on the technology of the Greys. There are also secrets to be found lying in folders, PDAs and blueprints that give the conspiracy view of something, such as Bush being in the Illuminati, 1969 moon landing was a hoax, Philadalphia Exp., HAARP being a mind control (specificaly Animal mind control), and other things.

overall, the game deserves a 4/5 if you ask me, the only downfalls to it are the fact there only 6 weapons, you can dual wield only two of the same type and have no control over when you can if you pick it up accidentaly, and there are a few graphics mistakes, but besides that, the graphics are great, the storyline is awesome, and the sound is great. A definately must have for skeptics and believers alike!

Hello EBE,
sorry to be a party poop, but I love playing first person shooter games (Including half life 2 and CSS - Im in a clan as well - empirical assassin is my CSS name) but area 51 was a real real rubbish game.

4/5? Never in a week of Tuesdays! doom 3 / FEAR /Quake 4/ SWAT 4 ect ect ect were many times better than area 51.


But thats just my pennies worth, but hey, at least you love FPS as well!

But my favorite game of all time? Black and White. Classic.

I agree with GSA.... next to games like CounterStrike: Source... Unreal Tournament... Battlefield 2 etc Area 51 is absolute crap... i became very bored with it and had to put it down after 20 mins of play....

Well, if you say so. I liked it quite a bit. Many of the FPS I've played didn't compare to what I got out of it. I do have to admit that the first two levels are boring, but around the third it picks up some. The end really gets better though.

Have either of you downloaded and / or played the PREY Demo?

OMG is it totaly insane in parts - Theres a map where you have all four walls to walk on - a multiplayer where you can literally drive your enemy up the wall... Its is really some thing that you should have a look at EBE17 because the alien artifacts and weapons are literally out of this world.

It was fun....the first time around. After that it got really really redundant, along the lines of black. Pretty fun game though.

Halo, Doom, ect, some of the more popular ones. It's probably just because I'm so interested in this stuff, it just struck me as interesting.
