Excerpt: It’s Like… …I’ve kidnapped my colleague Adam Fleet’s review format. I’m a fan, what can I say. As for Darkest of Days… It’s Like… …an episode of Quantum Leap that keeps freezing up on your TV.
Conclusion: Darkest of Days is not only a game about time travel, it physically manages to transport the player 10 years into the past by delivering a gameplay experience that might have been acceptable a decade ago, but by today's standards, seriously falls short.
Conclusion: Darkest of Days takes the concept of time travel in an interesting direction, and then proceeds to fumble at every turn. Poor AI and slowdown lead the list of this game's problems, and with so many better shooters out there, this isn't worth the time and frustration.
Excerpt: Time manipulation is old hat when it comes to shooters, but time travel is still fair game. Darkest of Days tries to capitalize on this vacuum with an adventure that spans some of the most dramatic moments in human history.
