Darkness game Product Information
Based on the Top Cow comic, The Darkness is a mature, Mafioso adventure, set in modern times but steeled by ancient magic. Players take the leading role of mob hit man Jackie Estacado, who acquires supernatural powers known as "The Darkness" as he reaches his 21st birthday. Gameplay involves exploration and combat through interactive, destructible New York City environments. The plotline is balanced on conflicts between Jackie's ambitions and his family's underworld entrenchment, and on the conflicts between Jackie's own human personality and that of his supernatural side. ...See Full Description

Good graphics, great story line. In-game controls are virtually seemless. Everything flows together well.

||Great story & gameplay but too short|
Darkness has a great story although quite depressing. It's also very short, can be completed in 8-10 hours, maybe 12 hours if you do the side quests as well. It's somewhat remeniscent of the movie "The Crow". There's one scene where you can actually watch two full movies on a tv, one of them I beleive was "To Kill a Mockingbird". Graphically the game looks stunning and the gameplay overall is pretty good. You'll come to find out that the conventional weapons are fairly worthless except for blowing out lights and found myself using "Creeping Darkness" power a lot more than the weapons. The Darklings are fairly useless as well except for the one Darkling that runs around and blows out the lights for you. The Darkness powers are pretty wicked and the last one you get is could almost be considered cheap or cheating even. From what I have experienced in the Multiplayer option, it's extremely laggy and not very exciting. Gears of War multiplayer is much, much better. Overall it's a great game and if you enjoyed Chronicles of Riddick you should enjoy Darkness.

||like playing a movie|
the biggest knock on this game is its length, however short as it may, the story trumps 90% of hollywood movies these days. definately not for children, but a well-crafted, adult-oriented drama, very much like "the crow". gameplay takes little time to get the hang of. graphically as realistic as a game can get, and the voice acting is first rate. i'm unfamiliar with the multi-player and probably will never play it as i've heard the developers just through it in for fun. if you want a gaming experience that will emotionally draw you in, a completely realistic interactive first-person shooter, i highly recommend this game.

too complicated, boring, levels are just uninteresting.
