Summary: Yes, it is unrealistic representation of the subject matter, and it plays like a Hong Kong Action Theater take and blend of World War II and the occult. So, it can seem almost humorous that way, but it was just plain fun...
Summary: I had a lot of fun with this game. There isn't much I can say which trashcanman didn't cover in his front page review, which actually led to me buying this game in the first place. My first run through took me about 60 or so hours, and I did all the extra missions and got 900/1000 achievement points. There is a 100 point achievement tied to beating the game in a certain amount of time, I believe 35 hours, which is easily doable from what I've read.
Summary: For those of us who love strategy, Operation Darkness is the game to buy. Taking place during WW II, you find yourself in the middle of combat only to be seriously wounded. When you come to, you join the ranks of a special group of soldiers called the Wolf pack. Everything seems like regular war until you learn that the Germans have recruited a deadly army themselves.
Summary: This is the best SRPG (Strategic Role Playing Game) for the XBOX 360. Yes I hated the camera, but it does not break a turn based game (use the mini map when views are blocked). If you like taking your time before making a move and studying the board this is the game for you.
Summary: This game is like the original front mission (that's right, the one for super famicom). I loved that game intensely, and played it through something like 20 times. Everyone complains about the camera, but i didn't have any trouble with it at all, the only real problem i found was gauging the distance you had to move, combined with the range of weapons, it's hard to keep all that in your head when you're trying to control 12 different little people, making sure 8 or 9 of...
I had been looking for this game for years and didn't know it

Summary: To set the stage, Final Fantasy Tactics is quite possibly my favorite game of all time. If turn-based strategy/tactics/RPG is your cup of tea, then I think you can work through the problems with this game (which there are some) and will love it. The problems have been discussed in other reviews, so I won't go into too much detail. The camera is pretty annoying. Thankfully it's turn based so fiddling with the camera a bit doesn't really hurt you.
Summary: After the numerous negative reviews by video game authorities, I hesistated to purchase this game. The demo from XBL held my attention for a few days but I wasn't able to pass that level. When the price dropped to $30 I finally picked it up and regret not getting it earlier. It definetly has its faults (map,camera issues, not knowing which enemy goes next, etc.) but i think that takes very little away from the core of the game.
Summary: First off it's true the camera is bad. It's not gamebreaking bad, it's more of a flat camera than anything. Just hit Y and you bring up the mini-map and that helps a lot. The game is hard, but if you like difficult tactics games like Final Fantasy Tactics (PS1) you'll love that anyway. Overall I'd say the game is excellent. You get to fight vampire Nazis in WW2 with your Werewolf clan using WW2 weapons in a sweet tactical RPG game. It doesn't get any better than that.
