| One of my favourite games on the PS2
I have just played Blacksite: Area 51 and it got in the swing of alien blasting games. After an hour of scrabbling through my room, i found it, Area 51. I started from the beginning, and after that, I could not stop.

The plot I thought was very deep, and the secrets that you uncover are something that should be kept hidden from the public.

The plot revolves around a Hassmat team sent in to clean up after an alien virus is set loose in the base. It may not be much, but the story contains every conspiracy theory in the book, the moon landing, aliens, government corruption. It does this well and makes you think if this could all be true, it is very well played out.

The game play is good, the controls are easy and the weapons, even though are fairly standard, are put to good use in this game. The alien weapons are very good, and are extremely useful against the aliens The graphics are a very good standard considering this was brought out a while ago, the blood and goo go flying every where and some of the stuff you see is very unnerving.

The sound is very well used, the mutants screech and the voice acting is very good, Marilyn Manson is beautifully cast as the big grey and adds that extra creepiness to the game.

The inside of Area 51 is very well created and is like the game names it a 'Dreamland' A very good game that I love replaying and gives the idea of a good old fashion FPS with loads of goo and guts.

The reason I gave it an 8 is because it still feels like your typical FPS that you've played a hundred times, it's the way that it is presented and unfolds that makes it fun and interesting and gives it more of and edge in the FPS market.
