  • 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.

Puzzle Quest

  • 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.

The Darkness

Video Game Generation
15 June 2008
  • 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.

True achievements
20 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Tiny maps, laggy game play and a shapeshifter mode which lets people kill you once and then hide on top of a building for 10 minutes until the game times out and they win. Horrible. Just horrible. No one plays this crap so you're gonna need to boost for the 1000. Overall No maps, Boring and slow game progression and a wanna be Spawn anti-hero are enough to have placed this game exactly where it should be.

On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode 2

Square-Go
7 March 2008
  • Excerpt: With the first segment of this four-part game series now firmly established on Steam, XBox Live Arcade, and recently the Play Station Network—and having sold like hot-cakes in each case—it should come as no surprise that the second episode is now available. And what a return it is! Continuing after the close of Episode One , you find yourself homeless, and once more left with no option but to team up with Gabe and Tycho in their quest to thwart the evil machinations of...

Darkness (PS3)

The Review Busters
5 March 2008
  • Conclusion: I'm glad that I chose The Darkness as my completely free game from Gamestop. I'm also happy that I didn't have to pay anything for this game because I really don't see much replay value after you go through it once. You may want to run through it maybe 2 or 3 times to try and find all the little unlockables if you really like the game, but I don't see myself playing it over and over like I did with Resident Evil 4.
