    First review of The Darkness

    The magazine Gamereactor has a review of The Darkness, I haven't scanned it though since I don't see any reason to, there are no new pics in it, and it's on Danish.

    But here's a little sumary of what they wrote:

    Pro's:
    Nice environments
    Good puzzles
    Great story

    Con's:
    Badly animated faces
    A bit too slow

    The only thing they write about the multi-player is that you can choose from playing it as an FPS or rely more on your Darkness powers. And that makes it feel different, they didn't write if they liked it or not.

    They gave it an 8/10

    Could be a good rent if it's not too long.

    Lets wait for other reviews.
    Yup I'm Back. If you wonder, read this. =)

    Oblivion has a good story...

    Now, I know you didn't mean to troll, but some members won't take it that way.

    And does anybody know how players there are online?

    well i guess some people might like it but to me it was one of the weakest aspects of that game, way generic and uninteresting. there were a lot of other good things about it that saved it tho.

    if im not mistaken, i think i read 12 players...or 16?

    Like I figured but I'll hold out full judgment for when I play the game.

    Still, you should be careful with your wording. There are some people on this forum only too willing to turn one sentence into a multi-paged argument. And I liked the storyline of the Dark Brotherhood.

    Well, I am... but I just needed something to cover 5 words.

    The review says it's a bit too slow? Can you elaborate on that? Slow paced?

    Also, bad facial expressions? Eh, I've seen videos that counter that, but whatever.

    He directly says it's too slow, while the dialogues are really well written they can sometimes be a bit (sluggish, slack, inert, slow. Don't really know wich word is the right to use, I had to look it up in a dictionary) And Jackie also moves a little too slow so the fights doesn't have the same "feeling" like in the comics.
    But he said that was really the only negative thing about the game.

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy it next week, it would have been nice if there was a demo of it, but I'm just gona hope I like it.

    I'm suprised JAck Tompson is not all over this game, but the rating will protect the buyer, ha ha.

    I would get this game for the executions alone. Although the tentacles kinda give off a hentai vibe for some stupid reason.
