@YOUNG GAMER, In the case of the Starforce protection of the game, the latest official patch (patch version 1.1.89007) must be applied. This patch also makes the retail version DRM-Free. Regarding the interruption when installing, you can use this patch by following the instructions given in the link:
* It is important to note that this patch is for the 1DVD version. In any case, the first thing to do is to mount the disc image and then run the patch. Select the installation language and wait for the process to finish. Finally, the update patch (patch version 1.1.89007) is downloaded and the game is no longer protected by Starforce and DRM-Free.

To play the game now. Just download from ModDB free version of the game, and latest patch for retail version and extract patch content into free version.

This game brings back so many memories. it was certainly ahead of its time. As a child I didn't as much attention as I could have to the story but now I have the opportunity to relive this gem and get to know the "lore" if you will. The no install version seems to work fine for me even the jump function works as it should. I wish this had been more popular than it was.

Why no audio on the No install version? I played this game on PS2 as a child and sucked ass but I really want to get farther into it. Pls help :(

I share two links:
- The DVD image of the videogame ( ).
- The patch to install the video game in 64bits Windows systems ( ).

Tested on Windows7, 8, 8.1 and 10 x64.

I remember enjoying this one more than the Blacksite : Area 51 successor.
Great website!

Very good horror sci fi shooter! With David Duchovni!

For people having trouble getting the ISO to install:

With Area 51 Disc 1 in the cd\dvd drive, open a command prompt window. Type in the letter of the drive, followed by a colon and press Enter. You should now have a prompt starting with the drive letter.

Type in the following command line and press Enter:msiexec /i "area 51(R).msi" /qb

Also I had to change the compatibility mode to Win XP SP2.

Hope this helps someone.

This game was like the movie Terminator 2. Way ahead of it's time. A very good shooter, exciting and smooth running. This might also be the most realistic game that describes the actual Area 51. I honestly do not have anything negative to say about it.

mrg 2019-06-28 -1 point

it's good game but fov is bad gives me a headache.

Cain 2019-06-19 2 points

Some of the cutscenes are not working, the intro, the outro... all the cutscene that does not use the in-game ressources

Gidbug 2019-06-05 0 point

Loved this game as a kid, had rented it on ps2 and it was just fun to play through.

bhlaab 2019-04-23 3 points

Having a framerate in excess of 100fps breaks your ability to jump. Find some way to force 60fps to fix it.

sora 2019-04-10 2 points

I got the no install version, for some reason the jump action refuses to work? i can't get past a part because I can't jump. anyone have a fix on this?

DasAntihero 2019-01-26 0 point

I remember playing this in 2007 as a 6-year-old and my older brother was spooked of it. We revisited it years later, as our younger selves didn't get far into it past the mutagen part, and I have to say it holds up nicely. The game is rather difficult at times but is nonetheless an experience.

Is this the game where Marilyn Manson voices an alien?

BigBob 2018-10-19 2 points

This review refers to the No Installation version.

Area 51 is a FPS gem from 2005 that features high quality graphics and superb audio even when run on PCs with no video card. The visuals are realistic and enhance the game's immersion. Combined with its intense sound design, the results are exciting and creepy. One can hear mutants and other nasty bots stalking you through the corridors. Unlike most single player games, your squad's bots are fun to be alongside and useful during the many high energy fights through the underground facility. The campaign is therefore like a series of multiplayer matches. Best of all, Area 51 is a sci-fi and light horror title that combines the thrill of early shooters with the realism of Halo but with graphics that are respectable to this day.

The installer doesn't work, it gives the message that it was interrupted, but it happens as soon as you click the Install button and nothing has even started to install.

Trigun 2018-07-11 -1 point

When I try to install the files, it does not seem to work?

anon 2018-06-20 3 points

Pretty good game. I have it on OG Xbox.
