Our government is taking flak not just in film, TV and music. Now it's getting satirized to great effect in BlackSite: Area 51. This fun shooting adventure mocks the unpopularity of the president and the Iraq war.

The storyline suggests that government doctors are fusing space-alien DNA with that of soldiers to turn them into super disgusting killers, who accidentally go on the loose. It's up to you, the player, to portray an elite American soldier trying to save our great land from...us. You shoot machine guns, rocket launchers and plasma rifles to take down DNA-corrupted U.S. soldiers and big, ugly aliens running amuck in a real Nevada town called Rachel.

Politics aside, the game is long and beautifully drawn, sending you scurrying to search and destroy through detailed trailer parks, Nevada neighborhoods and canals. Online, you can tap into death matches, capture the flags, and human vs. alien levels, where you try to slay alien-morphing humans before they corrupt you.
