Summary: This first person perspective shooter is an interesting mix of history and science fiction. There is no printed manual. (one is included on the disc) The game installs easily, no online connection is needed. It is not a long game. It took me about 25 hours to play through but better players could probably do it in considerably less time. It was very stable. I experienced no freezes and only one crash. The game contains a large amount of f-words.
Summary: I would rate this FPS above average. The game play is enjoyable and refreshing-- a modern, full auto mg against muskets is pretty original. The only part of the game I didn't care for was the language but in today's world it will be ignored because, sadly, its so common. Other than that I would recommend this game.
Summary: This game is actually really fun. Reviewers are expecting some Halo/Cod, Rambo crap but this is a methodical historical, scifi, slow paced FPS. You need to have patience, and enjoy history. The muskets are fun, they make you actually aim, I guess people aren't used to having to be careful with shots or having to take cover
Summary: I was skeptical about a game that has such bad packaging artwork (and a clumsy title) but it turned out to be a lot of fun. The graphics aren't top notch but they aren't distracting either, and an effort was made in numerous places to add detail. Voice acting was often hokey but somehow endearing at the same time. What I liked most were the unusual settings -- Civil War, Pompeii -- and the old weaponry.
Summary: got the game for a good price and it was pretty cool.good shooter with that time traveling/modern weapon thing working pretty well.could have been more choices of time eras but killing rebs and romans with sub machine guns was pretty fun.
Summary: I won't go into the basics of the game--there are other reviews for that. This seems to be a game that some people enjoy, while other people really hate it. For example, some people really like being able to wield muzzle-loading rifles that take several seconds to load, but other people find it boring (though to some extent you can improve your guns between missions, including the reload rate).

Summary: A first-person shooter that uses Time Travel as its main gimmick, Darkest of Days is a solid game with a lot of potential that never quite gets around to really exploring it. The game casts you as one of General Custer's cavalrymen at Little Bighorn. After the famous ambush is sprung and your fellows are cut down, an armored soldier bursts from a time portal and rescues you from certain death.
