  Area 51
Words from the company:
Area 51 is the only action-packed 1st person shooter set in the U.S. governments most secret and secure military facility. The U.S. Army has received a distress signal from Area 51 where a viral outbreak has just shut down the research facility and the automated quarantine procedures have locked all scientific and military personnel inside.

A small Special Forces unit led Specialist Ethan Cole of HAZMAT (hazardous materials) Division is sent to investigate. As Cole, players will delve into five massive levels within the confines of Area 51; discover a mutagenic side effect of the virus that controls the minds of those infected, as well as an ancient alien colony buried beneath the facility. With a multitude of human and alien weapons, players must explore chilling conspiracies such as the extraterrestrial crash at Roswell and the faked lunar landing, in order to solve the enigmas of Area 51 before the viral mutagen is released and irrevocably mutates all life on earth.

The Review:
For me this is probably one of the best FPS games I have played in quite a while. The graphics were amazingly done and the colors in many places of the game were stunning. The story line was incredible as well, your name is Ethan Cole and you are part of a Hazmat team that is sent into Area 51 to clean up the mess that has taken place. Upon arrival you see the horrors that have been covered up for many years by the government and work your way through areas with mysteries that they don’t want the general public knowing about. The arsenal that you get throughout the game is pretty awesome as well; Shotguns, Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles and some pretty cool alien guns.

I would recommend this game to anyone who is into or is a fan of first person shooters or alien\creature games, although I would not recommend this for the younger audience as there is a lot of swearing during the cut scenes and a few gruesome parts as well. I did not like that they did not include a save or quick save; you must get to the games checkpoints to be able to do this, and there were quite a few parts that I wish I could have saved at. I also had to turn to the Strategy guide about a dozen times or I would have been in those areas for quite a while wondering what to do. I had no other major problems with the installation or use of this game.
