Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I don't have anything earth shattering to say but the other threads for this game are like two years old so here's a new one.
The Darkness looks only slightly better than a PS2 game, the shooting is a little clunky and it took a while to get my bearings in the game world but there is a really good story in there. All the voice acting is convincing even the bonus phone calls and Jackie was a very likeable anti-hero. There are no monster closest scares just a very dark atmosphere and a very creepy tentacle monster to keep you company with its sinister threats. You can be very creative with your darkness powers but you do feel a little too powerful because honestly, when you can slither tentacles around to eat faces and summon black holes on top of groups of enemies dying comes from being careless rather than the game being challenging. The monsters you can summon can be good fun but their AI is too rubbish for them to be very useful.
Overall a good way to spend 15 hours and about £10, you could certainly do a lot worse. I liked the ending and I hope Starbreeze get to make a sequel.
