They grind their enemies for fuel, fashion their skin into protective cloaks and create weapons designed to exterminate en masse, and they're the good guys! They are the Darkwatch, a mysterious secret society that has protected humanity from evil since the dawn of civilization. Their newest and most deadly agent is Jericho Cross, an outlaw gunslinger pulled into their ranks by an unfortunate close encounter with a vampire lord.
Jericho's only chance of regaining his stolen humanity is to pursue the Vampire Lord through an American Frontier overrun by evil minions. Along the way Jericho relies on his deadly gun-fighting skills and advanced weapons and vehicles created by the Darkwatch, owing as much to sorcery as to technology. As half-vampire, his superhuman abilities allow him to move, see and take damage no living man could. When he's in tight spot or needs an extra burst of speed, he can summon his demonic horse from the very ground he stands on, firing his weapons from horse-back or crushing the rotten skulls of undead opponents with flailing hooves.
To fight a monster, one must become a monster. Jericho Cross had no choice...but only he can save the West and his own soul from eternal damnation.
The graphics are superb, and the sound is excellent, but the game is so samey that, unless you are in the mood for a senseless blood crazed first person shooter, you will be quite bored after about 20 minutes of gameplay.
I truly enjoy FPS games and this really is a well made game, but after playing it for over an hour I just felt I was killing all the same enemies and it got very tedious.
As with all FPS games the weapons are superb.
A game to rent first or buy relatively cheap (like I did), but don't expect the best PS2 game as your hopes will be greatly let down. Not the worst game on PS2 by far. A good attempt at a truly unique game.
Repeat playability 3/10
As most would, i went out bought and played the game... and got bored very quickly...
The gameply is too slow compared to a number of shooters at the moment and the story drags.
Although entertaining to begin with, you later realise there is too much introdyuced from the start and not enough things left to discover later on.
Death watch is is awsome in all areas
