A Rough, Unpolished Game That's Still Enjoyable And Unique
3 April 2014
Summary: "Darkest Of Days," developed by 8Monkey Labs and published by Phantom EFX, immediately stands out as something completely unlike everything else. It centers around time travel where you fight in various wars throughout history, like the Civil War, WWI, WWII, and ancient Rome. Sadly, it's really rough around the edges in many areas, but it still manages to be engaging and nail-biting.
Summary: I got this for the PC. The controls are good. I have a Windows 8 computer with a 4 GB processor and the graphics are only slightly messed up (at times when there are a lot of guys on screen it glitches and a guy slides across the screen instead of running). I got the game mostly for the Civil war battles. The makers of the game did a good job on the realism of the battle scenes and that time period weapons.
Summary: Holey crap this game sucks a**! Don't even want to talk about this garbage! The graphics are ugly as h**l, the gameplay is boring, and the A.I., oh my god, its the worst A.I. I have ever seen in years! Plus the idea of using a laser sighted assault rifle in the American Civil War isn't really considered as "fun" to me, its just plain cheating! This game's just complete crap. Boy am I glad that I rented the game first!
Summary: A nice $10 title. Allows you to use futuristic weapons against Civil War and WW1 troops. Many opportunities to man machine guns in nests, zeppelins, towers, etc. Then you are faced with waves of attackers. One scenario gave the ability to call in artillary against waves of Germans. I don't like having to press the Tab key for the map all the time to see if I am heading towards my objective, a simple compass in the corner like everyone else would have been a big help.
Summary: This game was amazing. Never before has a company made a game that was as good for WW1 or the civil war. This game is for people who like large scale fighting, not the little side mission crap. So if you wanted a game where you get to charge into battle with hundreds of other people then this is the game for you.
