  not to shabby

| | See all dannyboy3101's reviews (5)

very good game nice and challenging in places, good story line and decent action scenes i picked it up for a tener and i can say i spent my money wisely. very much looking forward to playing the next one.

the only thing personally i can say i don't like about it is the non action parts of the game, for example walking from station to station and street to street to go and see other people in the game, i found these parts of the game pretty boring and sometimes confusing as most places look the same and are hard to find.

putting all that aside its a very decent game and for the price of 10 quid you cant really go wrong to be honest.

People who complain about graphics, or getting lost.....boo hoo. the graphics are fine, the story is brilliant its a really fun experience and you find your way eventually, if someone says find apartment 6 or something, its more realistic if they don't know where it is, that you don't have a marker! you haven't been there.....so anyway, this game is amazing, must buy!

  Top Notch Game.

Really pleased when i finished this game. It feels alot like Starbreeze Studios,The Chronicles of Riddick games. Based on a Top Cow comic book you play as Jackie Estacado seeking revenge against your sinister Uncle Paulie. Along the way you will travel back and meet your ancestors who also posessed the darkness. The powers you obtain are pretty cool as well like the Creeping Dark, Demon Arms and more. The ending is tense and powerful and it would be a shame if you missed out on this gem. I highly recommend buyin this game now.

this game is very good story driven fps with some very good
gameplay and graphics just completed it today and still thinking about the story. if your getting it for online is well don't because theres no one on there. don't let that put you off the single player is enough to keep you playing

  Excellent

Lets get one thing straight! the main character 'Jacky' belongs in a Goth Band and not the mafia!.... ok now thats out of the way lets begin. The Darkness really took me by suprise, i picked it up cheap and was not all that impressed..at first. But then the well written story grips you and you're on a rollercoaster ride to Hell and back, quite literally may i add. Before you know it you're tossed head first into an emotional headcase of game that includes Dark graphics, Family deaths, Revenge and a very awfully realistic adaptation of your characters Hell. there is a multiplayer mode to this game but i never tried it so i cant comment on that side, but i would recomend you try this game if you enjoy FPS games that are very story driven. one last thing, this aint no kids game! its far to violent with bad langauge and i would urge any parent to take heed to this warning before allowing your child to purchase this game.

  TRULY GREAT!

Honestly, this is one of my favourite games....

ok, GREAT story, can't express how great it is here. Needs to be expereienced!

Great graphics, great gameplay, loads of fun playing with The Darkness, good levels, enough 'side-missions' to have replay value,

Mike Patton (from Faith No More, Mr Bungle etc) plays the voice of the Darkness. He does a great jpb too.

All the voice acting in this game is exceptional.

Give this game a go, this is truly an exceptionally great game. One of my favourites.

  5 stars - great game and LOOK at the price!
