Superb paranormal mob story with run-and-gun action
16 December 2011
Summary: The Darkness follows a man on his 21st birthday as he uncovers paranormal facets of his life and tries to complete a hit for his mob boss. Of course, the hit encounters a hitch in the opening scene. The gameplay is slightly reminiscent of Alone in the Dark, another early PS3 game. Players run and shoot in a series of action-oriented levels. If you enjoy games like Alone in the Dark, I'd recommend this game to you. The story alone is worth the price of admission.
Summary: The Darkness is one of those games that's sitting on the clearance shelves of most retailers for under $10 that not many people know about. When released the game didn't get a lot of attention and sort of flew under the radar of most gamers. I decided to buy a copy since it was recommended to me by a couple of people. The darkness is based of a comic book series about a young man named Jackie who has demonic powers that are only usable in the dark.
Summary: I picked this up for around ten dollars and figured that it would be just an ok game. It actually is a lot of fun with cool graphics and good horror themes. I think the hardest part for me is the extensive amount of things that you have to remember. I mean this guy can do a ton of stuff weapon/darkness wise and remembering what does what was tough. I might have to write it down! All in all a great bargain and I still have a ways to go to beat it!
Summary: June 25, 2007 - In the '80s, the comic book industry turned its back on four-color supermen in favor of dark and gritty anti-heroes. That trend continued well into the '90s, with new superstars blending the line of good and evil. No more clearly was this seen than in Marc Silvestri's The Darkness. Jackie Estacado is a man cursed with a birthright that emerges on his 21st birthday.
Summary: Shut off the lights and jump into an amazing game. As a horror author, I can proudly say that this game manages to deliver an eerie yet enjoyable experience. Near the beginning of the game, you will gain THE DARKNESS. This consists of these demonic eel-snake things that come out of the side of you. They can run down streets, bite off faces, and even smash lights. There is a fantastic and gripping story to be had here, and plenty of side quests to keep you busy for hours.
Summary: Im a comic geek and love the Darkness...but...the game was fun for 20 or so bucks...graphics are nice...powers are so so. If you can get it cheap...under 20 Id recomend it...well if you havent played condemened Id REALLY recomend that.
Summary: This game is pretty fun. First of all and this is very important, the voice acting is superb. As a matter of fact, they spent so much on the talent, the characters lips/mouth movements for speech are very poor, but it does the trick. The characters are colorful and interesting and the protagonist is refreshing. I recommend this game to anyone that wants to try something a little bit dark, different and likes the whole mob theme.
Summary: I'm a casual gamer, and usually play for an hour or two before I get bored and move on to something else. This game had me hooked. The controls are easy to learn, and the game kinda leads you around to where you need to be. I've just beat the Easy mode and now will start the normal mode to see how bad I really am. I have not played the multiplayer mode. The game was really fun to play. The storyline may seem typical for expert gamers. Go there, retrieve this, kill that.
