  • Summary: I was utterly fascinated with the concept of a time traveling shooter and eagerly picked up Darkest of Days. Right out of the gate my hopes got a quick reality check.Darkest of Days tries to put you in the middle of the battle and does a good job when it forces you to play the part you've "jumped"...

Fun Game

JONATHAN F., Newegg
9 March 2010
  • Summary: I like this game and have played it through a couple of times. The hardest part for me "Stairway to Petrovich", where you're in a Zeppelin getting peppered by Germans. I can't get through this on hard mode as the thing invariably blows up.
  • Pros: This is a fun game, but not of the caliber of some of the most recent games out there. The concept, going back in time with modern weapons is what drew me to the game. In that respect it worked out pretty good, and overall it's an OK game (for about $20.)
  • Cons: Voice acting, with the exception of Dexter, stank. It has a very closed in feeling; a very linear progress that worked OK but cheapened the experience. The period guns are neat, and the modern weapons work out OK, but probably could have been better. The AI is somewhat lame, though they will all ...

Interesting concept, poor construction

Samuel Johnson "Sam", Amazon

  • 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.

not that great

  • 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.

Bad start with support, game not too bad.

Herbert Freeman, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • 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.

Interesting premise but a mediocre FPS overall

Media Man, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • 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.

A fantastic civil war game marred by the inclusion of pointless sci fi

Moviedude, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • 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.
