genuinely cinematic and utterly brilliant.,
This review is from: The Darkness (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Wow, I bought this very cheaply earlier this week and have been ploughing through it at nearly every spare hour I have. It is basically a first person shooter with a well scripted story, its not as epic as halo but far more personal. The graphics are excellent, dark but it is still possible to play without being too dark. The Darkness itself is an excellent gaming tool, it justifies super human powers and gives the story a strong narrative. I won't give away details of the plot, save for that , IT AIN'T FOR KIDS. this is 18 material through and through. The controls are well laid out and very smooth, the plot compelling and it manages to be cinematic without being too linear.
