Rated 1 out of 10 by MKchamp92 Such a bore
Gameplay is slow the so called "stealth" is nothing but waiting. while some powers were kinda cool but its not worth the play through.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Engem Lame, lame, lame
There are two good things I can say about this game. The overall story was alright and a couple of the powers were good. Other than that, this was a massive disappointment.
I love a good stealth game, don't get me wrong. But the gameplay sucked. The "stealth" aspect was a joke. The voices were amateurish and talentless. The interface was pathetic. I would have expected to see something like this on the original Xbox, as an early attempt before they got it together. Considering how games have evolved, this was a definite throwback in my opinion.
If you really must play this game, for dog's sakes, rent it or at the very least wait and get it used.

A story with some interesting points brought down by poor performances bad dialogue and lackluster visuals. Is there a game salvageable from the mechanical mess that is DARK? The answer is yes. On the hardest of difficulties, it provides a challenge many games of today do not offer. Frustrating moments often result in chaos on the screen, and the misuse of checkpoints only makes things worse. However, there is something here, something in the DARK that drives you to want to see what is just around the corner.
Dark is not a technical masterpiece, nor a masterpiece of any kind. I do believe it gets stealth right. It does borrow from many games of the past. Not necessarily bringing them together well, but just enough to be intriguing and fun.
A simple leveling system that lets you get to the meat of it right away. In just a matter of finishing the first mission, you'll already have several upgrades. Becoming a force to be reckoned with. This feels good, but since everything is open to view before you even truly know what's going on, there are no surprises when it comes to the powers you'll have.
The artwork in the game is top notch. Maybe the best element of the game by far.
Controls are clunky at best, but they are manageable. I've not finished this game, and since I'm playing it on the hardest setting it may take a few days to do so. I do recommend this game for anyone looking for a challenging stealth game. If you can overlook the technical shortcomings, there is a frustratingly fun game in the DARK. I hope this is the start of something new.

Twilight pretty well destroyed vampires and supernatural creatures for me, but this game looks like it'll make them cool again. I like the sort of futuristic vibe that the game world has (from the videos), and the gameplay looks like a good mixx of classic stealth and some action, without going over the top on the action side. I read a preview that said it's like Sam Fisher being a vampire, so I'm pretty excited about that.
Rated 2 out of 10 by DjNotnice9000 the combat system
there's no combat system and the game-play is honorably, you just press the "A" button or for PlayStation "X" to kill someone, but i give them props because Vampires are awsome
Rated 0 out of 10 by fisher907 not impressed
When i first read about this game and I saw the words "vampire" and "stealth action" I was extremly excited. So i went to youtube and looked up the demo and it looked pretty boring and the fact that they are dropping the price to 50 dollars at launch worries me.
Rated 1 out of 10 by ScourgeWolf Worst Game EVER!
When you move the character around he looks like he is on a moving walkway at an airport. The graphics are REALLY Horrible. Actors should not be acting and start up a life of alcoholism. Sound is horrible and no lasting appeal. If your making a game don't use the graphics from 2002.

I am looking forward to this game. I been waiting for it ever since GI's article on it. I am a stealthy guy so I am defininetly getting this game because stealth is the only choice. That is a blessing and a curse, but it does make it a stiffer challenge. If you like Thief, you'll love DARK.

This game and dead pool are probably two of the best games that come out "early" (before October fest) which will hold everyone's attention and Interest till the more big popular franchise games come. Both look promising and possess different styles when it comes to an action RPG game.
Rated 4 out of 10 by wingerace Meh
Not too bad of a game.. Definitely not worth its price though. Cool abilities but thats about it. Still kind of glitchy on release. Sound messes up sometimes if you skip through some cutscenes... I'd give it about a 3.5 or a 4(generous) out of 10.
