User reviews for Area 51
8.3 / 10Combined Score
Lack of enemies, graphics not quite up to scratch and weapons a little under powered.

Well so far i love the game, i just wish i could find the friggin shotgun David Duchovny does a good job narrating the main character. Havent seen Edgar yet so i dont know how Manson is doing with the part. and i havent played on XBL cuz i havent had time to play on live, so far i think its alot more interesting then Halo 1 & 2, sometimes ur fellow Hazmats rely on u alittle too much, making u go grab something by urself and t...
