  • Summary: It arrive early, a little damage to the disk box case thing but the CD was new so it still was good. I'm happy with it.

Nice game

Solidsnake081180, Amazon
10 May 2013
  • Summary: A really neat tactical strategy RPG. If you liked Vandal Hearts, Shining Force, or Final Fantasy Tactics then this game is for you. The story is about a special forces squad during WWII. To make it a little interesting there's werewolves, vampires and zombies in the game. Each battle can range from up to 30 minutes to a couple hours. The camera functions were a little strange at first but you get used to it.

Great Game, Bad Cam.

Jay Jerome, Amazon
5 March 2013
  • Summary: Anyone who likes ATLUS (Ogre battle fanboys like myself) will enjoy this game very much. The cam is a HUGE problem. All the controls for it are weird and inverted, and you can't change that. THAT is unacceptable and the only reason it isn't getting 5 stars. The gameplay itself is deep and unique.

fun game

  • Summary: I find this game very fun. It is challenging to find the most effective way to progress through a mission. It requires you to think about where you leave your troopers, and how they should react to enemy troops. The graphics are ok, the sounds are ok, but the challenge of the game more than makes up for it.

Great and Rare Turn-based Tactical Game for Xbox 360

SSanLee "IU HPER", Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: I am a turn-based strategy/tactical game fan. I realized that it is very difficult to find this genre of games for Xbox 360. Operation Darkness is a typical turn-based tactical game and the only game based on World War II in this genre, as far as know, for Xbox 360. However, some fantasy stuff (e.g., Vampire, dragon, undead) is also mixed in the game story.

Difficult but at least it has story

TheSupahBeast, Amazon
22 October 2009
  • 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). If you can get past the difficulty of the game, and the bad camera controls, the game is pretty decent. The story surpasses my expectations and I liked the voice acting.

underrated!!!!

  • 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 While the presentation is not the best, the graphics are outdated and the camera is terrible, the game is great fun for those looking for a good strategy game that is both challenging and has a very cool twist (nazis and the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). If you are a strategy fan looking for a challenge, and not afraid of substance over flash, grab this!

Werewolves? Where? Wolves?

J. Onorato "blzbub", Amazon
2 March 2009
  • 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. The premise is a cool mix of Nazi / Occult / Werewolves / Vampire lore and after a while, your crew develops some pretty interesting powers. However, getting to that point is half the battle. First, the camera is really annoying.

Just the demo

Deena Williams, Amazon
17 August 2008
  • 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. Well it was all normal until i took control of a character named Gallant and he had the option to turn into a werewolf. The main characters all have special attack moves that do a great deal of damage. Much more so than their guns.

WHY ALL THE HATE?

G-FRESH , GameStop
4 August 2008
  • Summary: Ok yes, Operation Darkness is UGLY. It's one of the UGLIEST if not THE UGLIEST game on the Xbox 360. But then you know what I always remember? GRAPHICS DONT MAKE THE GAME, GAMEPLAY DOES, and I personally think that this game is very fun. I won't go into a huge summary of what the story is as I'm sure most everyone already knows what it's about, but I will say that I think the story of Hitler being an occultist and using zombies and vampires during the war is incredibly...
