20 March 2015
  • Summary: Curse of Darkness marks the first time a Castlevania game has appeared on the Xbox. It is a 3D game and definitely isn’t as good as recent 2D entries, but as far as 3D Castlevanias go it is easily the best of the bunch. The level design is a little bland and the combat gets a bit repetitive, but overall it is pretty solid.

  • Excerpt: Like most gamers in the United States, I first became aware of Starbreeze Studios with the 2004 XBox title “The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay.” “Riddick” was one of the first games to use “normal mapping,” a process that enhances in-game surface detail while exacting a minimal system performance toll.

The Darkness Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: There are plenty of horror games on the market, but few that allow you to play as the horror itself. However, the Darkness (based on the Top Cow comic of the same name) gives you control of Jackie Estacado, a guy with tentacles protruding from his back as well as the ability to control the demonic darklings, pretty much the definition of a horror then is our friend Jackie.

  • Conclusion: Puzzle Quest is probably the most expansive puzzle game of all time. The developers have done a fine job balancing the puzzle genre with the RPG genre’s customization aspect. This game appeals to just about everyone.

  • Excerpt: Generally, videogame adaptations of comic books are becoming better - the X-Men Legends series, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction , and Ultimate Spider-Man are good examples of this trend. True, there are still stinkers floating around, but the overall quality of comic book games has been improving for some time now. The same is true of movie games, to a lesser degree: on the whole they aren't great, but in general they are improving.

  • Excerpt: Date: 9/7/2007 Every so often a game comes along that hooks you right in from the very beginning. The Darkness is one of those games. Not only is the game's premise of a mafia enforcer undergoing a dark transformation under the influence of a demonic possession unique, but it is brilliantly executed as well. The game's graphics and environments make for some great atmosphere that is backed up by a compelling story and some excellent voice acting.
