Section 8: Prejudice(http://warisprejudice.com/)  Rated T for Teen by ESRB.  Section 8 Prejudice is a direct sequel to the 2009 game titled Section 8. The game takes place in a futuristic society in search of new planets for Earth’s inhabitants to live on. The 8th Armored Infantry (the good guys) and the Arm of Orion (the bad guys) are two separate armies fighting against each other in this war for planets. The Arm of Orion are human, but mutated humans, nonetheless, whose original purpose was to purge planets of life for humans. However, now they’ve turned on their former masters and are out to get them. The characters in Section 8 all feature very advanced armor. This armor invokes special powers such as super speed, jet packs, and the ability to drop from orbit and crash right into the middle of the battlefield. The armor makes the humans look almost alien-like, as this armor gives an overall cover that is white and smooth and sleek: think Storm Trooper gear in Star Wars.

Graphics:
The graphics in Section 8 Prejudice shoot for the realistic approach. The guns, armor, mechs, vehicles, and spaceships all look very futuristic and slender. Everything looks technologically advanced, and very refined. The details in Section 8 Prejudice do look slightly dated, since they are not as graphically advanced as I would like. However, this is a DLC game on Xbox, and very cheap for PC too, so it does put on a pretty show for the price.

Sounds:
The voice acting in this game can vary, but is generally not very on point. The characters lack motivation, and just sound bored with their tasks, as if this kind of thing happens every day for them. But, this is the future, after all, so perhaps fighting aliens on distant planets is all pretty routine, after all. Section 8’s futuristic weaponry all sound stellar. There are even some ultra-realistic sounds as background noise. For instance, even as you’re falling from orbit to crash into a multiplayer game, you can hear the wind rushing past you, and finally end with the satisfying smash into the ground as you enter the fray. Sound effects like these help to richen up the game, and also help to compensate for the lack of thrilling, advanced graphics.

Gameplay:
Section 8 Prejudice plays very similar to a fast paced FPS, with some added goodies, such as jetpacks and deployable turrets. The game features an excellent boot camp introduction to bring you up to speed on how to play Section 8, as well as the special controls for the suit. It plays like a typical FPS, with the exception of the suit powers being mapped out to different buttons on the keyboard. However, they aren’t too complicated.  For example, all you have to do to get super speed is to hold the sprint button down for a longer duration. Pretty simple to grasp.

Although the campaign is fairly short, the multiplayer adds for endless hours of fun. Especially with more game modes on the way, Section 8 Prejudice is a looking to be very enjoyable online shooter experience. Mutliplayer is a huge aspect of Section 8 Prejudice. The online mode features a classic Red vs. Blue team deathmatch style of gameplay. You can customize your character’s abilities, armor, and weapons. The gameplay style is similar to that of Battlefield, where you have control points across the map you need to capture to keep your team’s points up higher than that of the opposing team’s. The team to first lose all their points, loses the game. There’s also a swarm mode, in which you and other players online use your skills together to defend yourselves from wave after wave of enemies.

Innovation:
Section 8 Prejudice is very much genre conforming to the FPS style of gameplay. However it does set itself apart in a few ways. One way is the ability to purchase vehicles, deployable turrets, and advanced weaponry right onto the battlefield in online games. The other way Section 8 stands alone is with its very unique spawn system : you pick where you want to spawn on the map, and simply drop from orbit and land on the battlefield. It’s a very awesome and innovative style of entry, especially because enemy AA guns can shoot you down if you try to fly into their base.

Longevity:
In the online game modes, you can unlock many weapons and different armor variants to use. These are acquired by gaining EXP, or experience points, from battle. Overall Section 8 is a very fun game, especially online. The singleplayer is nothing to tell all your friends about, but the online modes sure are. Section 8 Prejudice also has a very recession-friendly price, and is well worth every dollar. It’ll be sure to keep you entertained for a while, especially with new game modes on the way, and the excellent online gameplay it offers.
