The Darkness Review (xbox 360, Ps3)
Dark modern crime drama and supernatural horror with intense first person non-linear gameplay scores well with averages of 83% for xbox360 and 85% for Ps3, from Metacritic.com
Xbox 360 Summary
The Darkness delivers on every level.
The game's biggest problem is all the filler between the reasonably exciting combat sequences.
A remarkable action game that tells a compelling story from start to finish.
Worth checking out for its unusual ideas, twisted gameplay elements, and uniquely dark atmosphere. Draconian just-one-save system,
It's a stunning achievement, it's too bad that the AI and gameplay mechanics couldn't be smoothed out
The best bits of mafia and war films, producing one complete, intriguing experience
The Darkness will keep you enthralled, even when the gameplay lags a little behind.
It’s like a great amusement park ride: fun while it lasts.
Some core problems hiding in the shadows, like underlying structure and play that just don’t completely congeal.
Amazing narrative, believability of characters, and the twisted joys that come from being a slave of a demon, impressive visual presentation.
