This review is from: DarkBASIC (The Ultimate 3D Game Creator) (CD-ROM)
Those negative reviews here seem to be from people misunderstanding what DarkBASIC is, and what it isn't.
DarkBASIC will not allow you to create games which will be of commercial saleable quality, i.e. you will not see Quake 4 or H&D2 programmed in DarkBASIC. Similarly DarkBASIC, while much easier than programming C++, will not do all the work for you - you still have to program and you still have to have an idea worth programming.
But DarkBASIC is a lot of fun - you CAN create worthwhile games which play well and look great, games of near-commerical quality. ...In addition there is a thriving on-line community where you can pick up useful tips and share code. But you do need a decent system to run your games on - I wouldn't consider running a decent DB game with multiple 3D objects on screen on less than a P500.
Don't listen to the doubters but do understand you're not buying something which will make you the next Eidos. Then just have fun!
