Illuminating upon Blacklight: Tango Down photo
Illuminating upon Blacklight: Tango Down
by Ben Perlee

When a game makes a decision to be multiplayer-focused, there are a lot of risks involved. After all, any multiplayer shooter is only going to be as good as its core players, and every new entrant is going to struggle against the more established franchises.

That's what makes Blacklight: Tango Down so interesting. The first in a series of games, comics, and films about this new narrative, Blacklight: Tango Down is a multiplayer-only first-person shooter. While there will be a very short co-op mode, and you will see elements in the multiplayer that imply the conflict between the two different factions, the narrative is not going to be the strongest element. Blacklight: Tango Down is aiming to be a solid FPS for PSN, XBLA and PC, and not too much more.

Having spent time with the game, there are some very impressive elements to the title, and it could definitely be a contender for a game to keep an eye on this summer. Hit the jump for more.
