Conclusion: Well, this is the best shooter I've ever played on Xbox. And I have goldeneye, riddick, medal of honor, even far cry instincts... Why? Because the graphics are AWESOME. It's original. Each weapon can be used as melee, and you can earn vampiric powers.
Conclusion: So, the game starts off in a nice CG cutscene, it's obviously a Western themed shooter because we're out in the desert robbing a train. Not sure why the train has spikes all over it. And once in the train, we go through a really fast tutorial and (quite) a few cutscenes. Nifty.
Conclusion: Better than your average FPS !!! To simple put it Darkwatch is a breath of air. Its really not doing anything new, its just doing the same old FPS thing better than most other new FPS. The story line is interesting and will keep you engadged.
Conclusion: I rented NCAA last Tuesday at my local BBVS. I think renting enables me to be less biased than if I plunked down $50. Reason being, once you've made that investment, you tend to convince yourself it was worth it.
Summary: I've never played a game like this before. It's very unique but good, you play a cowboy (Jericho Cross) who has been bitten by a vampire. You slowly start to become a vampire, your lust for blood starts with you sinking your teeth in your horse, turning it into the undead like yourself.
Excerpt: Dark Watch: Review Darkwatch is a western shooter mixed in with the supernatural element of demons, beasts, and most of all Vampires. This game stars rough tough, one eyed bandit of the west, Jericho Cross, and on one faithful night picked the wrong train to rob.
Pros: Interesting weapons, challenging levels
Cons: Repetitive enemies, used plot line, clunky controls
Summary: I agree with the other revies. This is one of the best FPshooters Ive played. Although there is some really great ones around this one can be played seriously or with fun. Believe me this is great fun. Yes, it is rather short but I played it 3 times in one week on different difficulty levels.
Summary: I remember when Doom 2 first came out on PC, I was single and had the money to go out and buy a new PC just so that I could play the game that the office staff were playing in their lunch hours.
