Summary: This is an excellent Civil War type game. If you are fan of civil war games, instead of purchasing any of the civil war games out there like the History Channel ones, this one offers more action and gore.
Playing this is like watching a B-Movie, in the best way.

Summary: If you like B-movies, you might like this game. It isn't a good game, but it is fun. The concept is a blast, but the gameplay, graphics, writing, etc. are all sub-par. That said, if you find yourself watching B-movies for fun, this is still a good game to play through.
A fantastic civil war game marred by the inclusion of pointless sci fi

Summary: Darkest of days is an interesting little endeavor- a first person war simulator that delivers battlefields with hundreds of combatants and lush, organic landscapes. The game is spread across several time periods, as the player takes the role of a time-traveling policeman of sorts.
Summary: This one looked like fun and started out well but am having difficulties in the WWI mode with the dang gas mask blocking my view of the necessary map to move to the next quest thing....so three stars it is til I figure out the issue on a later update......maybe
Summary: Developed by 8monkey Labs and published by Phantom EFX in 2009, Darkest of Days is a FPS that takes the player through time where you fight in historic battles in efforts to save key individuals from certain death.
Summary: What made me attracted to this game was the prospect of mass infantry battles, mainly the civil war era with musketeers. I wasn't dissapointed with that part, but everyone else is downhill. NOTE: CONTAINS WEAPON SPOILERS Pros -Epic battles, especially the Civil War era battles.
Summary: After a not so good expirience with the tech support for this game, overall it is not too bad. The problem was, that a .dll file in Vista, made it not playable and it took over three weeks and the loss of one of the support requests, to resolve this issue.
Summary: Brilliant concept, so-so execution. First of all the graphics are very sub-par for today's standards yet the thing still manages to lag like crazy on my phenom II x3 710, 9800gt 1gb, 4gb ram system.
Great story, but the AI and the graphics could be beefed up

Summary: The Good: The game delivers on the promise of the story of going back in time. The maps are quite large and with varried terrain and buildings. Players can use stationary weapons and pick up weappons they find. The game play is straightforward FPS.
