Binary Domain is a must-buy at £3 on PS3

For less than the price of two pints there are hours of fun to be had here with Sega's third-person shooter on PS3 via PSN.

The futuristic setting sees you take on a robotic army consisting of basic grunts as seen above and giant mecha-spiders. The procedural damage that each bullet inflicts is a gun nut's joy to behold as you tear chunks of metal from the enemy with each shot. You get to boss around a squad too, including a French robot. Don't ask, just get stuck in.

Binary Domain Review |
Binary Domain PC Price Comparison

I looooove Binary Domain. Maybe it's the outstanding damage modelling. Maybe it's the cheesy sci-fi setting, but with the added bonus of interesting characters andsmattering of choice and consequence gameplay thrown in for good measure. Maybe it's because it handles really nicely. Or maybe it's because it went pretty much under the radar (much like the also excellent Singularity) and it takes people like me shouting about it to get others to buy and play the damn thing!

Seriously, play it. It costs less than a burger. Thanks to Sir_bob @ HUKD!

Binary Domain | £5.98 | Zavvi | 360

Featuring some of the biggest boss battles we've seen since Vanquish, Binary Domain should be a part of any shooter fan's collection, especially at this price. The third-person shootouts see you taking on robotic troops and giant mecha-spiders as you uncover a sinister plot from a shady corporation. So, yes, the story is a bit old hat, but the procedural damage that tears chunks of metal from the enemy with every shot is destructive bliss.

Get Games' Sci-Fi bundle is a decent saving if you don't happen to own any of the games - and want to own them, more to the point. The brilliant Binary Domain is accompanied by the half-decent Aliens vs Predator, impressive RTS Universe At War: Earth Assault and the somewhat mediocre ARPG Space Siege. Each game retails for between £5-10 elsewhere.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best Shooter

It didn't matter if you wanted to play with or without company; if you were looking for an expansive, open-world bundle of gunplay, or a tightly focused corridor shooter; it didn't matter if you preferred your MP co-operative or competitive; whether you were a fan of the super-serious, or the terrifically tongue-in-cheek...2012 had what you needed, and it had it in swathes.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best Shooter

Binary Domain

Like the very best mad scientists, Binary Domain proved incredibly entertaining, stuffed with smart ideas, and occasionally got things wrong. But the very fact that it tried to innovate in such a relatively lazy genre was worthy of applause. Boasting some incredible boss battles, slick gunplay, and a cracking story, Binary Domain threw off any Gears-clone tag it might have attracted and became a barnstorming title that married the best East and West had to offer.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best Shooter

Black Ops II

As usual, Call of Duty delivered another comprehensive content package this year, with Treyarch making tweaks here and there to expand and enhance rather than overhauling. Reliably excellent fun as always, the simple -yet brilliant- revolution of giving players total freedom to tailor their loadout made Black Ops II a joy to play. Not many new modes to speak of, but existing party favourites, deathmatch options and shiny futuristic boomsticks made it a surefire online MP hit, with an excellent singleplayer campaign to boot. Another stunning content offering that saw Treyarch step out of Infinity Ward's shadow and become COD's premier dev team.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best Shooter

Borderlands 2

We described Borderlands 2 as "the best co-op shooter of its generation" and it still holds true to that accolade. Outstanding AI, superlative scripting, one of this generation's finest villains in Handsome Jack, and more loot than we knew what to do with, Borderlands 2 was a huge step up from its predecessor. Not that Borderlands 1 wasn't great, it's just that its bigger, badder, bolder brother was so very pleasing.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best Shooter

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 undoubtedly takes took the SP crown in the shooter category this year. Magnificently epic in scale, stuffed with things to do, and set in a living, breathing jungle, Far Cry 3 empowered the player to become the ultimate tropical predator, with a cracking story and lashings of immersion.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best Shooter

Halo 4

343 Industries were up against it, the pressure must have been huge. Yet, with Microsoft's biggest frnachise in their hands, they pulled off the incredible: not only did the match up to Bungie's predecessors, they even managed to surpass some of them. Halo 4's campaign was excellent, but it was in the multiplayer modes that 343 really pulled out all of the stops. War Games is still giving us tons of fun, with expanded loadouts and greater gameplay variety than ever before. And then there was Spartan Ops: yes, there were examples of some lazy content recycling, but we've simply been having too much fun to care. An utter blast.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best Shooter

Spec Ops: The Line

Providing probably the most striking narrative we've seen in the shooter genre for some time, Spec Ops: The Line was Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Coppola's Apocalypse Now relocated to a seemingly post-apocalyptic Dubai. As a pure shooter it was admittedly lacking, but excellent presentation, a storming Vietnam-era soundtrack, thought-provoking writing, and a barnstorming performance from a nearly unrecognisable Nolan North rendered it one of the greatest surprise packages of the year.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

We saw a number of franchises return this year, some older than others, with many taking risks to refresh and revitalise their good names. With the middle ground dissipating, and the current console cycle slowly entering its twilight years, it might have perhaps been understandable to worry a little over new IPs. Thankfully, once again, an indie sector blessed with even more ways of getting games in front of an audience delivered wholeheartedly.

And they weren't the only ones.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

Dishonored

Dishonored did better than simply revive the stealth genre, it made us wonder why the hell it went away in the first place. Arkane delivered a blank canvas in Corvo Attano, with a commendably mature approach to player freedom that asked much of you, and delivered ultimate gameplay satisfaction in return. In Dunwall, we had one of the finest video game worlds of this generation. Nothing short of astonishing.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

Dragon's Dogma

It was broken in places, and Gransys was one of the more forgettable worlds we've seen from an RPG, but Dragon's Dogma was one hell of an endearing game. Breathtaking combat, an innovative Pawn mechanic, and deep customisation options made it a firm favourite in spite of its flaws. Plus, the opportunity to take down a hole bunch of mythical beasts made it all the sweeter. Refreshingly mature.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

Endless Space

A sensational 4X title, Endless Space was absolutely epic in scope, but packed with dense, enjoyable features and boasted an intuitive, palatable GUI. Its infinitely customisable sandbox gave us plenty of toys and things to occupy your time, providing profound choice and variety at every gameplay level. As Douglas Adams said: "you just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is."

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

FTL: Faster Than Light

A bona fide Kickstarter success, FTL allowed us to take control of our own ship and live out our fantasies of become Captain Kirk/Picard/Reynolds/Hunt. In fact, the mod tools meant you could pilot the Enterprise, or Serenity if you really wanted. A little repetitive, and frequently punishing, FTL was nonetheless genuinely thrilling, hugely rewarding, and deeply satisfying.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

Journey

Gloriously life-affirming, utterly transcendental, Journey was one of those few games that not only provided a thoroughly unique experience, but also deeply personal one too. It didn't matter whether or not you considered it art, or even if you defined it as a "game", one thing was for sure: it was absolutely unmissable.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs was this year's little-big game that could. Dropped by Activision whilst it was still True Crime: Hong Kong, Square Enix snapped it up after a year in the wilderness and dropped it over the summer. Wei Shen's adventures provided the perfect antidote to the traditional sunny lull. Perfectly sized, utterly OTT, United Front Games refused to take themselves too seriously, instead providing an immaculately balanced open world game, stuffed with things to do, and supported with a near endless stream of cracking DLC.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

The Secret World

Funcom's loyalty to an archaic subscription model might have proven unwise, but that shouldn't take away from the fact that The Secret World was an outstanding game. Smart scripting, hugely imaginative world-building, cracking combat, and compelling content made TSW an attractive prospect...until you factored in the system requirements and the monthly payments, and a little game called Guild Wars 2.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best New IP

Vessel

Vessel was a truly superior puzzler and one of 2012's biggest indie hitters. Boasting quality, quantity, innovation, and impressive competence abound, as StrangeLoop provided one of the finest puzzlers we've seen since the original Portal emerged from Valve's vaults.

Binary Domain | £4.99 | Get Games | PC

Less than a fiver for one of this year's biggest sleeper hits is a great price. This third-person shooter sees a group of bickering mercenaries take on hoards of robot enemies in this sci-fi romp. You'll love the procedural damage as you see your bullets tear paint, metal and limbs from the Terminator-esque enemies. The optional voice-commands don't always work particularly well, but elements where you have to earn your team-mates respect to get the most out of them add some purpose to the action. Giant robo-spider boss fights are always a good excuse to sign up to.

Binary Domain happens to be an exquisite and thoroughly mental shooter with some exceptional set pieces and a brave stab at voice commands, so it's probably well worth checking out.

Be aware that you can get it cheaper on consoles, though.
