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. Binary Domain puts players in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle for humanity in a robot-invaded 2080 Tokyo. Fighting through the derelict lower levels of the city, players control an international peace-keeping squad that soon starts to question their surroundings and the choices they make. Are the robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?
Binary Domain's central theme of life is key to the way the innovative AI system is being developed. The highly advanced AI will make the battlefield a more compelling experience than ever before and players will have to plan their moves strategically and carefully in order to progress through the hostile environments of the game.

Graphics not as good as some shooters but the game is pretty well made with a consistent storyline. The game mechanics were nice and fluid. Over all, a decent shooter and definitely not 1 of the worst out there.
Yes, it´s a very funny game, more than i can say about most of modern games. This Japanese version of 3rd person shooters is really dynamic, it has good graphics and its atmosphere takes you to “I Robot” or “Blade runner” At this pricing is a great choice.
This is a fantastic price for the undervalued game that is Binary Domain. It's a third person shooter with lots of action.
Binary Domain is a great game for a great price. Thanks Zavvi!
Very good game, if a little short. Voice control feature quite good once you get the settings right.
Binary Domain is a good game at a good price. The only downside is that it is a little bit short.
Excellent Japanese take on the third person shooter with extreme humour and fun.
Binary Domain is actually one of the best third-person shooters in the past few years. The story, gameplay and character development continue to develop throughout the game. You start what looks like a generic shooter, with badass characters in a modest context. But as you keep playing, you realize there's more than just that. There's deep characters, multiple decisions, a great story and a better than average gameplay that makes Binary Domain one of the best options you have in the market.
Binary Domain is a really good game, everybody who likes third person games (like me) will love this game. There are cool weapons, and fighting with a group makes the game more fun. Recommended.
This TPS is a very good game and the price here on Zavvi is a great deal. If you enjoy sci-fi stories or you have read some Asimov's books this game is a must have.
Very cool premise for a game and always glad when Sega is successful. I would love to see Sega publish another title in the 'Condemned' series because it's been a while and Condemned 2: Bloodshot is a great game. If you're contemplating buying Binary Domain, though, it's definitely worth picking up.
Forget the reviews, this game is much better than advertised. Good story, good gameplay. Enjoyed it from start to finish.
Game tailored to the taste of science fiction fans and shooter, and one that deserves to be bought and played far more people than the 20-odd thousand in last March.
Binary Domain enters the shooter genre with solid gameplay and a focus on team comunication, either using pre made messages or using voice recognition. Visually, it excels on small details, especially the robots with lot of components in sight. Story-wise, the game takes players to a somewhat near future, with a lot of elements typical to other cyberpunk works. As a Nagoshi game, story and characters are important, but although the writing is solid, it isn't too complex, unlike Nagoshi's previous work on the Yakuza series. Important to note that actions during gameplay have some influence. Assisting and giving proper orders raises the trust level of the team towards the main character, and this changes a few events later in the game. Don't care about the team? Then they won't assist you or follow your orders when you need cover fire or help. Voice acting is generally good, mainly the main characters, and having NPCs talking japanese between themselves (the setting of the game is Japan) helps in the immersion department. However, when some NPCs talk to the main characters in english, these lines are clearly voiced by western actors faking an asian accent, making them sound horrible. Overall, Binary Domain is a great game and probably one of the best shooters around, with elements that are common for the genre, and with elements that only a few had until now, like voice recognition, upgrades on characters and weapons, and actions towards characters that influence trust levels and some events during the game. The main problem with the game is the lack of main story co-op, especially since it's squad based (but there is multiplayer).
Binary Domain is a nice game made by the producer of the Yakuza series with the same graphics. This is one for people that like games inspired by japanese anime.
Binary Domain is really a lot of fun. The story is reasonable, but the gameplay is quite good. While you may not have heard of this game before, I think it'd be unfortunate to overlook as most any first person shooter fan will enjoy it. I recommend any shooter fan to buy.
Binary Domain is a good, game although it's a bit short. There are a lot of different weapons and enemies, though. I didn't get chance to test the SpeechFX, but it seems like it could be very useful.
Binary Domain was split into things I liked and didn't like, for me. I liked the story, boss fights, and duration of the campaign, and I didn't like the robot design, their lack of personality, and the graphics, which weren't very good.
I recommend Binary Domain to everybody, as it has nice graphics, fun game-play, and a great story-line. The campaign is fantastic, with a significant level of difficulty. I've noticed the multiplayer has a lot of lag, but that could be down to anything. The offline mode is enough to get a lot of hours of fun from it, so I definitely recommend you buy it now.
Binary Domain's combat is pretty straightforward but surprisingly fun. Taking pages out of Gears of War and Mass Effect, Binary Domain has a very well-implemented cover system that you'll use throughout the game's various firefights. You can hop in and out of cover with a simple button push, and can use your surroundings to great effect as you try to get into a prime firing location. You'll have the standard gamut of weapons at your disposal, like LMGs, sniper rifles, etc., but you'll also have nifty gizmos like Decoy grenades or your assault rifle's alt-fire energy blast, giving you options on how exactly you can dispatch your mechanical foes. Your enemies will be robots of varying size, type and difficulty, which helps ensure that gameplay doesn't get too repetitive after you've blasted through your umpteenth tin can. You also can aim your shots and disable a robot's legs to slow them down or take off their heads to cause them to attack their allies. While for the most part you'll just be aiming dead center and blasting away, it's nice to see that there's a little bit of strategy available in how you fight. There are several rail-shooter sequences and a handful of quick-time events to break up the action here and there as well. You'll be thrown up against some rather large and imposing cybernetic beasts in the game's boss fights, each one so different from the other I started to wonder who exactly in Amada's R&D department thought building a huge robot super-gorilla was a good idea. Unfortunately one issue with the boss fights is they have a tendency to take most of the usual gameplay features, like the whole "taking cover to avoid death" business, and throw them right out the window. When you take on a colossal, spider-like mobile fortress or quad-engine airplane, you'll be dashing around frantically with your finger pressed down on the trigger or hunting down a heavy weapon in order to take them down. In a way, it does break up the normal combat routine you'll usually follow, but on the flip side it ends up leading to some particularly frustrating in-game deaths.
Even though the atmosphere of Binary Domain is not like the movie Blade Runner, the subject tends to be close to it. It looks like a simple cover shooter, but it is more complex and even more fun. I like the story and even the characters. If you want a nice game, to just offer you a great story and some fun shooting time, than you have to purchase this game. The price is more than right so don't miss out.
I must first confess that I bought this game for the french dubbing. It's so bad it's hilarious ! Never played a game with such a bad french version, we laughed real hard with my friends.
This is a very good game, I played the first demo from the PSN store and I thought it was a different type of shooter that was good fun to play, so I ordered and was not disappointed. it is great fun! shooting robots and it is funny! when you shoot the robots legs off and it still crawls towards you with gun in hand, and if you forget about one that has shot of legs that you left behind in your trail of destruction! it sneaks up and attacks! you. I would give this game 5/5 and would say graphics very good and feels like arcade type game, which you would expect from SEGA.
Firstly to say this third person shooter comes only second to gears of war may be s little unfair to Binary domain as in some parts it's better. The enemy AI is good, the story is funny and very good. The shooting mechanic is excellent allowing for distant pop shots. Unlike Gears it allows for squad selection and upgrades to nano technology and weapons. The robot bosses just keep getting bigger (and I mean big) and are fun to systematically dismantle. I bought this game after hearing and seeing online that this game is a GEM, and I have to admit I haven't been disappointed loving every minute of SEGAs silly Japanese shooter and playing it every night (which for me is rare indeed). At the reduce price this is a no brainer.
Binary Domain is a futuristic third-person squad-shooter, with a cover system that makes it look like its out of something like Blade Runner or Terminator. You can choose to use the optional microphone support, to communicate with your team, and all of the enemies have proper hit zones, and show damage as they take it. If you shoot their legs off, theyll crawl at you, again like something from a Terminator film. The gunfights take place in small areas, that are dressed up to look like huge environments. There's also epic boss fights, and the online multi-player consists of the usual variants on death-matches, capture the flag, and a Gears of War Horde-like mode, called Invasion. Overall, it's a great game, that I highly recommend.
Binary Domain is a nice Third Person Shoot em up. It's lots of fun with big fires and guns...perfect just to relax.
The perfect way to pass hours on a lazy weekend. The storyline can sometimes feel drawn out and may have you reaching for the skip movie button, however, it is worth watching and does extend the game considerably by some hours. Gameplay wise it uses all of SEGA's expertise. It's fast, fluid and excpetionally pleasing to the eye. If I could score it properly, it would be a 3.9.
Binary Domain is a great 3rd Person cover based shooter which has a unique story line and plot all mixed together, along with great acting during cut scenes. You take on the role of 'Dan', a United States mercenary who is out in Tokyo with a bunch of other mercenaries shooting robots, as the city has been taken over by these machines. The gameplay in Binary Domain is top notch. It basically requires you to take cover and shoot enemies at will. After completing the single player campaign, users have the option of taking part in the online multi-player, which features various co-op and versus modes. All in all I think this game is a great shooter, 4 Stars for me.
