This ars review of Blacklight: Tango Down is quite scathing. What caught my attention though was this paragraph:
Also note that the game also uses the Massive network to deliver advertising to the game, which means every billboard and poster is advertising a real-world product. The game has a futuristic aesthetic, and the ads stick out in an uncomfortable way. If blatant advertising is a turn-off, this is not your game.
No other review mentioned the adverts so maybe they didn’t turn them on until recently. I didn’t see them in any Youtube footage of the game either. Anyone else noticed the adverts?
The game has been out for a little while now. That initial “something new” glow has to have worn off by now. Is it worth the purchase price?
