Awesome but not for everyone.

Lloyd T., Newegg
7 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because I was craving a strategy game like Valkyria Chronicles. I was very pleased with what I got except for the graphics and the camera angles. I suppose the graphics were to be expected since this was an earlier xbox game.
  • Pros: + Fun strategy + Fun take on WWII games (which I felt was overdone) + Anime style characters + Very challenging
  • Cons: - Very bad graphics - Unbelievably awful camera angles (seriously, sometimes it flips upside down) - Unforgiving as in you can make one bad move and it's game over - Get's much more difficult later on - Battles will start taking a long time to complete

Fun but aggravating at times

  • Summary: Very fun, if you can get over the cons, I think the pros outway the cons, but I would definitely advise downloading the demo before you buy.
  • Pros: Extremely fun
  • Cons: Its very annoying to be fighting for 30 minutes, push to far foward, and then the enemy calls in reinforcements right infront of your squad. All you can do is watch as the reinforcements all target the same person who cannot die, if they do its game over. Also the camera can be a major pain at ti...

  • Summary: I hated this game at first, why? Sucky movies like Rise of the Argonauts, but then 5 missions in the game grew on me...its actually really cool sans the once again Asian wannabe Hollywood movies. Listen Japanese market, movies belong to us..

  • Summary: Though I have watched my friends play SRPGs for years, this is the first one I actually thought looked good enough to play myself, and it did not let down! Awsome tactics, cool equipment, and customizable skill sets allow for almost endless gameplay options.

Best. Concept. Ever.

  • Summary: "Operation Darkness" is the first Japanese strategic role-playing game (JSRPG) to arrive on a Microsoft console and I say not a moment too soon. After all, is one of my favorite games of all time and OD is very similar in gameplay to that groundbreaking gem.

Just the demo

  • Summary: granted i only got to play the demo of the game but you do get to complete a full scenario. this game is one of the few games currently available on the 360 that fills some of your rpg needs. it's a tactical/strategic rpg featuring WWII.

  • Summary: In spite of what a lot of game sites proclaimed, Operation Darkness does not suck. It has issues, definitely, but overall, it's been a blast to play. Of course, SRPGs are not for everyone.

underrated!!!!

J. Swanson, Amazon
24 December 2008
  • Summary: This game is underrated. While the presentation is not the best, the graphics are outdated and the camera is terrible, the game is great fun for those looking for a good strategy game that is both challenging and has a very cool twist (nazis and the occult).

Difficult but at least it has story

N.O.W., Amazon
24 December 2008
  • Summary: I am a big fan of the tactics strategy type game but have yet to find one that has all the same thrills that classics like Shining Force and Vandal Hearts provided. Operation Darkness is as close as I have found on the consoles of today (ps3, xbox360, wii).
