Summary: One of my favorites as a kid. I just got it for old time's sake the other day and I can safely say that it remains amazing. The story is pretty intense, the gameplay is the best I've ever seen for PS2/XBOX, the graphics are obviously a bit dated but they are still great! The movement and the way enemies react in combat is absolutely amazing for a game of it's age. Definitely ahead if it's time.
Summary: wow darkwath is scary, intense, and really gets your blood pumping with exciteing gameplay, scary music that really adds on to the tension, and amazing graphics and you will never want to put your xbox controller down for even a second!
Summary: So I was browsing the other day and I saw this game. I figured it looked kind of cool and I like shooters so I picked it up. THIS IS A GREAT GAME. The controls are excellent, storyline is good, and weapons are cool as well. I like how you can dismember different parts of enemies in order to render them useless (think resident evil 4). Usually shooting games get boring for me after a while but this one wasn't bad at all. It kept me entertained the whole way through.
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. There are some things that I don't like in it, but every game has. THIS GAME IS COOL. You can use weapons like Crossbow, pistols, dual pistols, rifle, shotgun, mace, sniper rifle... It's just a shooter game.
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. The game now informs us that our pistol can be quick fired by holding down the trigger. Cool.
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. The AI seems different, better, more aggressive and the controls are very responsive to meet this new challenge. The graphics are nice and moody with audio that matches. I think the single play will be a solid adventure.
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. My first impressions when I popped it in were not very good, but they improved a ton as I got into it, to the point of where I would consider buying NCAA 06.
