Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Binary Domain is an original squad-based shooter by Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creator behind some of Sega's most well-known video game franchises, including the critically acclaimed Yakuza series. Campaign play in Binary Domain features a trust based system in which the maintenance of relationships developed with AI squadmates are crucial if they are to follow orders. The game also features full destructible robot enemies, a wide range of weapons and a robust range of online multiplayer options.

Who is Humanity's True Enemy?

Binary Domain puts players in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle for humanity against androids called the "Hallow Children" in 2080 Tokyo. Fighting through the derelict lower levels of the city, players control an international peacekeeping squad that soon starts to question their surroundings and the choices they make, especially as they realize that the androids appear to think that they are human and they witness the dramatic divisions within society. In the face of this struggle the question becomes, are these these robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?

Gameplay and the Consequence System

Gameplay in the campaign of Binary Domain is single player and mission-based, but uniquely interactive. Players assume the role of Dan Marshall, the leader of a multinational squad of commandos known as the "Rust Crew." The different characters of the squad each have different skills and personalities which must be exploited. Players are always Dan, but also command all other squad members, communicating with them either through a headset or via their controller. As players progress through the game they build dynamic relationships with AI squadmates based on the overarching cause and effect component of the game known as the Consequence system. Within the Consequence system, the player's competence in command, as well as their demonstrated understanding of their squadmate's skills, and even the way they talk to squadmates determines the amount of trust each has in Dan. Maintaining a high level of trust ensures that commands are followed, whereas a low level of trust can result in the opposite. Players can only take a certain number of AI squadmates into missions, and with some skills being exclusive to certain characters, maintaining relationships is crucial in the fight against the Hallow Children and the player's survival in the field. The Consequence system also affects the way that the campaign of the story plays out, with the use of different characters in different situations influencing events and outcomes.

Full-featured Multiplayer Support

Binary Domain 2-10 player online multiplayer support. Seven game modes are represented in this, including: Free For All, Team Death Match, Team Survival, Operation (government forces vs. resistance forces), Data Capture, Domain Control and a 4-player co-op mode. All modes feature the choice of five character classes: Soldier, Scout, Sniper, Heavy Gunner and Striker. Each has a different appearance and different weapons.

Key Game Features

  • Experience dual layered Tokyo with a run down and derelict lower city and a clean and technologically advanced upper city
  • In the heat of battle, motivate and build trust within your squad and test your ability to make real time, difficult decisions knowing there will always be consequences
  • Fully destructible and highly resilient robots adapt to the damage they sustain encouraging you to analyze each enemy, find their weaknesses and dispose of them in the most efficient way
  • Alongside a full armory of unique weapons, put emphasis on the skills that will benefit you to increase your resilience to attack, your speed and your firing accuracy
  • Beyond the 10 hour single player campaign, take your skills online and compete against others in various multiplayer campaigns that supports up to 10 players

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem for the ps3. Jan. 15 2014
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up this game from my PS plus account. I just finished the story today. Wow, what a great campaign for a shooter game. Awesome twists in the plot. It had a bit of everything.

Graphics are awesome. Gameplay is surprisingly a lot of fun. This is probably the best terminator type of game. The trust system and ability to play the campaign with multiple characters is a real advantage not many games offer.

Kudos to Sega for producing a great game...too bad nobody has heard of it.

I would highly recommend it to anyone.

You don't have an Xbox to play gears? Principle is the same ! Balanced third person shooter/cover game. Light story with a little bit of action including a voice recognition system makes it an interesting pick up. 20$ or less = take it

All I really have to say is that this game is INCREDIBLE. Coming from the same studio that made the Yakuza games, these guys really knew what they were doing on this one. The ONLY thing that makes me mad that gives this game -10% out of 100% (so 90%) is that your squad likes to walk into your line of fire SOMETIMES and that effects your relationship with whoever you shot. Other then that, deep story, good shooting, fun online and this needs more buyers! SUPPORT THIS GAME IF YOU'RE A FAN OF GEARS OF WAR. SERIOUSLY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Personality Over Perfection Feb. 29 2012
By Elias B. - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The "Yakuza" series is one of the most underrated franchises globally. It's story, character dynamics and renovations of typical brawler conventions are all amazing reminders of just how intricate and fun video games can be. With the franchise taking a shooter-style vacation this year with "Yakuza: Dead Souls", it's development team focused their efforts on a new IP with their signature flair for character and narrative, all on top of the increasingly-tired third-person shooter market. That new IP is "Binary Domain", and it's here to prove that Japanese developers not only can hold their own against Americans when it comes to action games, but surpass the gamut of them.

"Binary Domain"'s plot unfolds similar something by authors like Philip K. Dick or Harlan Ellison. In the early 21'st century, i.e. present day, humanity's downfall began. Global warming peaked and the economy collapsed, resulting in a one-two punch of cataclysmic events. The earth flooded, destroying three-quarters of the world's major cities. Only the corporations and governments with abundant resources could survive such an event, and conveniently, the most well-off ones were in the United States. This led to America becoming an international superpower by default. In order to rebuild the world which was now pretty much it's oyster, the government and technology corporations began to construct robots that could get the job done faster and more efficiently than the weary masses could.

However, this came with a price. Soon, the concept of intelligent robots who truly believed that they were human was brought to the table. This was an immediate threat, and thus the President of the United States put into motion the New Geneva Convention, which forbade any type of fully-aware robotic entity. But in 2080 a humanoid robot breaks into the building of the top robotics manufacturer in the world and attempts to kill the president of the company. That robot, known as a "Hollow Child", was built by a rival Japanese corporation, and was in violation of the new Convention. To put an end to this threat, the US Government sends two Special Forces operatives into Japan, which is being ravaged by these thinking machines. Their mission is to topple the corporation and take out any enemy robots along the way.

These two soldiers are the two most enjoyable protagonists I've played with in a game since I met agent Francis York Morgan in the 2010 cult masterpiece "Deadly Premonition." Their nonstop banter is very reminiscent of that shared between the protagonists of the "Army of Two" series, except in this game, the dialogue feels more natural and not overly wrought. It's like the best buddy cop movie imaginable, only set in the future and with armies of humanoid death machines out to kill said buddies. Killing wave after wave of enemies never feels tedious with these two guys around for chemistry and laughs.

Then again, the excellent dialogue isn't all that makes shooting these baddies special. Yakuza Studios implemented a damage system similar to the one found in the "Dead Space" series. Killing robots isn't only a matter of pointing and shooting, but rather a strategic and methodical takedown of each squad. Shooting the legs off of a robot stuns then, but they'll quickly crawl around and start shooting at you again, making a nuisance of themselves in a firefight. Blasting the head off of one fries their optics and brain, causing them to shoot at anybody, including fellow bots. Tearing through the chest is straightforward, but takes more time. How you handle each opponent is an integral part to "Binary Domain", making it more enjoyable than your average "Gears of War" clone.

What also makes each battle more enjoyable is the character relationship system, which not only affects dialogue, but character behavior on the battlefield as well. Depending on how you choose to react in battle, how you respond to questions, and your gameplay style in general, the AI partners will change accordingly. With other characters added to your party later on, you have to be conscious of how you treat your fellow fighters. One response may please a certain partner, but irk another. This will change their willingness to follow orders and help you out in the middle of a fight, so it's not just a throwaway gimmick to keep people interested. It's an important facet of the game, and one that more developers should definitely use in the future.

Visuals in this game are top-notch. While they never reach the level of something like, say, "Modern Warfare 3", they're certainly nothing to scoff at, something to be expected from a developer who accurately rendered contemporary Japan in the "Yakuza" series. The character models are impeccably rendered, and the scenery is fantastic after the first hour of gameplay kicks in. The futuristic Japan put on display is a true feast for the eyes, and a blast to barrel through and blast enemies in. Comparisons the aforementioned billion-selling shooter and other major action franchises are unfair, really, because "Binary Domain" has more originality bleeding out of it's designs than anything to come out of Infinity Ward, DICE or Epic Games.

What some might notice, though, is that the shooting mechanics are rather basic. They're a more raw-bones version of the "Gears of War" school of TPS games, and while that's certainly nothing bad, it may come across as not "innovative" enough. However, keep in mind that everything works the way it ought to, and the shooting mechanics are perfectly adequate. Same goes for the upgrade system which is basic, yet adds more noticeable firepower with each weapon level than most other systems I've worked with. It's a nice little component to an already nice game. Basic mechanics being fairly typical is nothing to complain about in this day and age, however. What most gamers look for in a game is originality in concept, design and execution as opposed to distinct moving and/or shooting mechanics. By this standard, "Binary Domain" is a roaring success.

However, it should be noted that by typical standards, this game is not perfect. In comparison to blockbuster games, it's graphics could use more detail. When held up against major shooter franchises, the mechanics could perhaps be a bit more fluid. And when put up against writing by studios like Rockstar, the banter might come across as cheesy or contrived. But in spite of these potential minor gripes, this game is hardly possible to dislike.

It makes me disillusioned with the current game criticism system that a game like "Binary Domain" is awarded a 6 or 7, while a game like "Battlefield 3" is awarded a near-perfect score. BF3 has a campaign that is utterly dull, a contrived war story punctuated by explosions and firefights with mechanics that are aped from many other FPS games. The redeeming feature of the game is it's multiplayer, which in truth should be a knock off on a score, not *the* reason to buy a game. In contrast, "Binary Domain" has tight controls that aren't anything revolutionary, but makes up for it with sheer creativity in AI interaction, narrative progression and feasible visions of what a robot post-apocalypse might look like.

Instead of sticking itself inside of a box and doing one thing that everybody on the market is doing, Yakuza Studio threw dozens of unique ideas behind "Binary Domain." There is absolutely nothing else like it on the market; it's a wonderful experience, with breathtaking action sequences and moments of true humanity among the cast. With way above-average graphics and sound backing it, this excellent concept work hits every sweet spot that a game should. One of my favorite critics, Jim Sterling once said that a game should be judged on "how often it made you happy, how much you laughed or became excited, and how you long you spend thinking about it after it was finished." I could think of no better standard to judge "Binary Domain" by.

Score: 9.0

4.0 out of 5 stars This game is better than what it's been rated. March 19 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Every once and awhile a game comes out and leaves a person baffled, surprised, frustrated, but ultimately wanting more. These mix of emotions define what a game should offer to it's consumer base. Now while it may not be THE definition of what that current genre is about, such as and FPS or RPG, it does something different enough that leaves you satisfied and most importantly respecting the craft that the developers have made. Don't know what I mean yet? Well, let me explain.

Binary Domain is a game developed by Sega, a game set in the future of 2080. This game takes place in Tokyo, a city that is, much like every popular city during this time period, suffering from flooding due to global warming. You play as Dan Marshall, an ex-marine from the US. You are accompanied by your partner Bo and try to make your way inside the tokyo walls to discover if a man, known as Yoji Amada, is producing robots called Hollow Children and bring Amada in for questioning. These Hollow Children are robotic organisms that are indistinguishable by humans and have no idea that they are robots themselves.

You meet with other team members, and international group of people, one from China, Japan, France, and two others from England, each one having a distinct speciality, such as being able to snipe or using a rocket launcher to take down heavy enemies. The interesting part is that throughout the game, you can choose different allies to accompany you and help you carry out your mission. What's even more interesting is that the team you choose will respond negatively or positively to whether or not you do a good job as a player. If you help them out, they will respond well to orders you give them such as giving cover, but if you do a poor job, they'll do things themselves, and during boss battles, this can be very frustrating.

You'll be facing robotic enemies throughout the entire game, which is of no surprise. the most fascinating, and addicting part of binary domain is how you take these enemies down. If you shoot an enemy in the leg and it blows off, the enemy will limp towards you. If you damage the legs enough, the enemy will crawl after you. Shooting off the head will cause the enemy to target other enemies around it. Not only is the physics amazing to watch, the amount of detail that you get from shooting an enemy down, to the environments to the boss battles you'll be facing is just breathtaking. Not to spoil the story, but there is one enemy you'll encounter that moves almost like a Transformer from the movies and the share animation process will leave you in awe.

The story itself, while familiar, is done in such a way that makes it feel completely original and almost shocking. By the time the story ends, you'll be left satisfied that you played this game.

This game also has an online feature, so even after if you get tired of playing the main story campaign, you'll get a few extra hours of gameplay with the online modes. There are only two game modes, versus and a co-op mode. While I was unable to get a game in of the co-op, the versus gameplay was definitely fun to play, especially when you play under the no re-spawn settings and have to be really careful about stickng your neck out when trying to plant a bomb.

So what's there not to like? Well...

The characters are a little stereotypical. While it was nice to see most races represented, the voice work and dialogue of some of the characters often made me want to shut out some of the dialogue. I often chose a select group of people just so i wouldn't hear the voices of the other team members. The voice acting isn't bad. It's really good. I just wish that there wasn't such stereotypes.

The gameplay can get a little repetitive, but the gameplay is evenly paced, so your not always blasting robots in the same manor.

Sometimes i think the boss battles are a little TOO hard for the normal difficulty. This isn't really an issue but more of a minor nuisance. For instance, lets just saying you or an ally gets downed. You ask to get revived or you try to revive your team mate. Sometimes the enemy will completely obliterate you and you'll end up getting a mission failed (not always) if you you don't revive yourself or your team mates while the enemy is blasting away.

Online definitely gets the criticism here. Loading times are WAY too long and it often lags in and out of gameplay. it's difficult to have fun when you shoot someone only to watch them teleport two feet to the left and take you out with a shot gun.

Overall though, this game was a blast to play and i enjoyed it very much. I hope that a game just like it, or a sequel, is made in the future.

Solid Game Play
Awesome Boss Battles
Very Good Story
Beautiful Physics and Environments
Pretty Good Voice Work

Lack of Online Modes
Online Lag and Load Times
A Little Repetitive
Stereotypical Characters

Binary Domain gets an 8/10

Forget all the reviews from gaming websites. This game is awesome! It feels so good to shoot those robots!

I am surprised by Sega's Yakuza series development team to create this hardcore TPS. I also imported Yakuza of the end from Japan, and to be honest; both games are just so amazing. Graphic is really nice from the moment u start; the control needs a little to getting used to, but u can change to COD style control the option menu if that is what u r used to it.

If you are on the edge of deciding wether to buy this game or Mass Effect 3... buy this one! ahah well, I ordered both. The shooting mechanics for this game is much better than ME3 in my opinion. I'm talking about Uncharted and Gears of Wars level fluid gameplay experience and shooting mechanics.

Don't wait! Buy it! NOW!

The scenario: fight against Amada's robot army in Neo Tokyo , which is divided into slums and sewers, and the rich and prosperous upper skyline areas.

Binary Domain's gameplay mechanics is really cover-based shooter, think Gears of War. You blind-fire, roadie-run, hop between cover... The controls are fluid and feel good. Add to this an attention to detail: armor shreds into scattered pieces of shrapnel, legs are blown off leaving enemies to drag themselves along. You destroy robots. Lots of robots. They include big robots, small robots, transforming robots.... you get the idea.

The makers of the game tried to include into this basic formula 2 new elements: voice commands (think Mass Effect 3, it does not use the kinect, but does it through the headset), and a relationship system between you and your squad mates. How you treat them will determine their performance in battle. For example, if you are at bad terms with one of them, he or she might ignore your commands.

There is no co-op for the story, and multiplayer offers the usual deathmatch, CTF, and such... nothing spectacular, but it lengthens the longevity for a bit.

Graphics and sound are on par with today's games so that's great too.

Not a bad game, but it is no blockbuster. I enjoyed it so I give it 5 stars. Buy this game if you have extra cash to spare and are done with other major releases.

Heard from a podcast about this under-rated shooter. So far I am loving both the characters and the satisfying dismantling of robots with various weapons. I highly recommend it. Just don't use the mic to control teammates.
