  • Summary: Considering the age of the game and it's archaic combat, I was still extremely impressed with the atmosphere, immersion and storytelling. It's too bad the sequel wasn't quit as compelling.

  • Summary: I wish all video games were made with this level of care and detail. I am not really even much of a fan of first person shooters, and yet I love The Darkness! Definitely not a game for kids.

  • Summary: I've just started re-playing this again after watching the review for the second game (it's been three years already...wowzers!) and I forgot how much I enjoyed it. I guess it's like a lot of things in life - it's an acquired taste that you have to have for it.

  • Summary: Didn't really expect too much out of it when I bought it. But it was surprisingly fun. A slow start at the beginning, but gets better as the story unfolds

A beautiful, introspective poem of a game

  • Conclusion: The Darkness is unlike any other First Person Shooter I've ever played. It succeeded in evoking an emotional response from me, which rarely happens when playing a game. I was truly moved by Jacky's plight, his resolve to kill Paulie and master his own darkness.
  • Pros: When I got my copy of the Darkness for Christmas I balked. It had been out for years and for my sister to buy this for me for around $20 when I spent almost $120 on her gift felt like a slap in the face. Nevertheless I popped it in my PS3 anyway to see if it was worth playing and from that moment...
  • Cons: There were points where I wanted to summon Darklings but couldn't, having to back track to summon Darklings again. This was most evident near the end of the game in the Turkish Bath House and during Jacky's trip inside the Darkness.
