Darkest of Days (Xbox 360)

  • 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

  • Conclusion: Darkest of Days provides a unique and overall well put together single player campaign. Any fan of action games or time travel mechanics should give this one a serious look.

Darkest of Days Xbox360 Review

  • Conclusion: If there would have been a multiplayer part to the game then it might have been salvageable, but really it’s just not worthwhile. I’ve also got the PC version of this as well for review, and I’ll be taking a look at that shortly to see if there are any differences between the two versions, so here’s hoping right!
  • Pros: Excellent idea and premise, It is fun once you play it for a bit and get over the faults, Graphics are decent when not stuttering and tearing
  • Cons: Terrible and useless AI, Long load times, even from hard drive, Frame rates drop all of the time, screen tearing as well, Shot detection is way off, Game is short, No multiplayer, Bad acting

  • Conclusion: Путешествия во времени – практически идеальная тема для игровой реализации. Каждый из нас может легко придумать сотню интересных особенностей такого проекта. В какие эпохи можно летать, что там изменять, как сражаться. Я не преувеличиваю – каждый. Но что удивительно, разработчики, которым по службе положено выдумывать, игр про прыжки в прошлое или будущее не создают. Тема эта всплывает крайне редко и всегда проявляется не в полной мере.
  • Pros: интересная идея; частенько бодрый игровой процесс; много удачных находок.
  • Cons: обилие монотонных действий; тысячи недоделок; тяжелая психическая болезнь разработчиков, из-за которой они ввели в игру всякие «самонаводящиеся мортиры».
