  • 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.

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.

The Darkness Review

Cheat Code Central

Demonic possession haunts first-person shooter.

Common Sense Media
27 March 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this bloody, mature game is over-the-top in both story line and imagery. Based on a graphic novel, it features extreme gore and violence (you can gun people down in cold blood) and strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t"). As you play, your character will morph into a demon-like beast that sprouts tentacle-like appendages to gouge baddies.

On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode 2

Square-Go
25 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...
