Excerpt: Operation Darkness has been marketed as the strategy RPG in which you're pitted against Hitler's supernatural forces of evil–including Vampires, werewolves, and even dragons–during the height of World War II.
Excerpt: The truth is that all reviews are subjective. Critics, reviewers, and gamers all bring the weight of their experiences and tastes with them to every game they play. I point this out because Operation Darkness nearly overwhelmed my critical reasoning skills.
Excerpt: Growing up, Operation Darkness had big dreams. Like a small child exploring the world for the first time, it fantasized about being a third-person shooter. Oh, the excitement of becoming a respected member of the shooter community!
Summary: Operation Darkness starts like other any video game based on World War II: you play as part of a division of heroic Allies (British, in this case), and end up in a unit that specializes in behind-enemy-lines operations.
