Blacklight: Tango Down has adverts?

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?

Blacklight Tango Down

I first read about Blacklist Tango Down a few days ago and it looked very interesting. It’s a first person shooter with customizable weapons, 12 maps, lots of game modes, 4 coop maps playing against enemy AI, who spawn in random areas. (hear that DICE?)

It’s out today on Xbox Live but they’re still working on a PS3 version. Hopefully there’ll be a demo on XBL I can try later.

Edit: Patricia has written about her first impressions of the game.
