The Darkness – Completed
One day Moose and I went to his house for lunch so he could let the dogs out and I could check out his PS3. He was raving about this game and wanted me to play the demo. After about 10 mins I had fallen in love with the concept. You are the evilness plaguing the world, you are the beast tearing the hearts from his victims.
The story centers on a mobster on his 21st birthday. He basically dies that day and the darkness brings him back to life (think ghost rider the movie). The city that could almost be considered a mini-sandbox is your playground to find your foes and enact vengeance on them. The story in itself has some depth to it and plays out well with everything going on.
The game is a FPS, with a twist that seems to be more common in games these days. You have a darkness that you can use alternatively to regular guns. Through the game you develop different types of the darkness in which you can unleash. Each situation you find yourself in can be approached with different styles, sometimes brute force works and other times its better to use a stealth tactic.
The game for me was 9 out of 10. With the controls seemingly perfect and the game play looking smooth and well done, I can’t not recommend this to any who has a 360 and enjoys a shooter. It could have been just a few hours long and made the game perfect.
