Excerpt: This is not a good game, and I will make absolutely no attempt to hide that fact. Darkest of Days is a budget-priced game made by a small studio with a vision much too large for their level of experience. The idea by 8monkeys Lab’s production is solid—it’s hard not to grin at the thought of travelling through a few of history’s greatest wars—but the execution is so lacking that I find myself in horrific awe at how this game could be sold in its present state.
Pros: A strong sense of the player’s insignificance in a much larger conflict
Cons: Choppy frame-rate, uninspired missions, weak story
Summary: Overall, Darkest of Days is your pretty average first-person shooter with a very different kind of storyline. The game takes of to a slow start which may make you not want to play it anymore but furthering into the game and learning the storyline, the game actually becomes quite interesting. This game is nothing special and obviously was not trying to become the next big shooter but for at least a new approach on games, it's not too bad of a game for at least a rent.
Pros: Nice innovative approach and story for a game and some of the weapons are a ball to have.
Cons: Graphics are nothing to wow at, A.I. is sloppy, a few bad level designs, no multiplayer or co-op, an
Summary: Phantom EFX's Darkest of Days, using 8Monkey Labs' proprietary Marmoset game engine, is a story-rich, first-person shooter presenting an intriguing story of time-travel to some of the darkest periods in the history of mankind.
Excerpt: A passion project that takes a great game idea most of the way to the finish line, Darkest of Days scoops up a doomed bit player from Custer’s Last Stand just before he can eat that last arrow. As the saved-by-the-future Alexander Morris, you’re put to work as an agent for KronoteK, an organization that prevents history from being tarnished by ethically challenged post-modern meddlers.
Pros: + Large-scale period battles., + Cool blend of historical realism and futuristic death-dealing.
Cons: - Invisible walls; dim A.I.; mediocre presentation; shallow upgrade system., ? Were militia forces really so heavy they had to walk across the bottoms of rivers?

Summary: En annonçant leur tout premier FPS il y a déjà 2 ans de cela, l’équipe de développement de 8Monkey Labs croyait posséder quelque chose de gros avec Darkest of Days. Devant plus souvent qu’à son tour composer avec un manque de fonds, un laborieux développement s’en est suivi jusqu’à la récente sortie du jeu, au début du mois de septembre.
Pros: Concept nouveau et gameplay varié Alternance entre les armes et les époques
Cons: Qualités techniques inégales Intelligence artificielle horrible Très court Aucun mode en ligne
Summary: Darkest of Days — это некое подобие неплохо шутера, но явно не доделанного до конца. Конечно, здесь есть всё, что только шутеру, но плохая графика, не очень проработанный сюжет и не слишком хороший ИИ... И всё же она стоит своего прохождения...
