A gorgeously-written review from Edge magazine:
Digital Extremes has created a Frankenstein’s monster that actually works. Its mind is sound, its looks beautiful, its sutures invisible and its stolen parts functional in all the intended ways. It has no soul, of course, nor distinct personality, but that’s the nature of the beast...It's a shame the author is credited only as "Edge."
Easily dismissed as a pastiche, Dark Sector proves that grand vision is no prerequisite for sharp design and arresting play. But it’s a shame to see Digital Extremes, such an obviously talented studio, deferring still to the wisdom of others. One day, this skilled weaponsmith will find a story to tell.
