Rated 10 out of 10 by Cartmen838213 great game, kept me doing till the end
This game was one of the best early xbox 360 games that i have ever played. I had just started looking for older games for the 360 and this and a few others were very highly rated. I checked this game and 2 others out. The first 2 i couldn't really get into but this one was interesting because things kept changing to keep my attention. I went from the subway in new york to the underworld. Killing everything from swat to zombies. I couldn't believe the graphics they were something u would expect of a new releasing game. This is one of the best games ive played for a while and i recommend it to anyone that wants a game that you don't want to stop playing, also to anyone that likes difficulty. Not saying its the most difficult but if you put it on hard your in for alot more time than if you keep it on normal. The sound affects were amazing, i could always hear the subway coming before it actually reached the station, tearing the hearts of your enemies out was also a good touch. It is a great game for everyone that likes role- playing games and needs something to do for a day or two.
Rated 9 out of 10 by natonjob for only $5 you cant complain.
The game is a very underrated gem. you basically get what you paid for. Your not going to play multilayer online. There isn't anyone playing it and the multilayer is mesh anyway so if your looking for a multilayer game look elsewhere. You wanna buy this game for the single player campaign. The campaign is only about 8-10 hours long but its a allot of fun 8-10 hours. The game has a very interesting story. Its a very dark, mafia like story. The graphics are good for its time. The voice acting is some of the best Ive ever heard in a game. The only gripe I kinda had with it was its automatic targeting system. Its much like Golden eye for N64 where you just point in the general direction and the gun will do the rest. Not to say that bad its just kinda takes away from the challenge a little bit. overall its a great game that everyone should check out and for only $5 you cant complain

This game is almost perfect in every aspect except for its length which is in no way bad but when it does end I at least found myself wishing that it hadn't. This game isn't to challenging since the darkness will actually bring you back to life any time you die but it has its sticky spots where you just have to try your best to get past the enemies. The graphics are top notch and I wish the 360 had more titles with this world of darkness feel to it, the sound and music were perfect the gun fire sounded as it should and the voices for all the characters were amazing, the music for every scene and situation matched perfectly and the controls are easy to remember and very well placed. The story line goes right along with the comic and you really feel the emotions that the character feels, I dunno about everyone else but I was VERY upset about what happened to Jenny and wanted revenge just as much as Jackie. This is definitely in my top 5 favorite games of all time I just hope the sequel is just as good. All in all, just go buy this game you will not regret it and for the price that its at now there's no reason not to.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Kiba's Shadow Can't beat it for the price
As a late adopter, I just picked up this game for the newly discounted price. The storyline is involving, and the graphics and sound are well done. There was only minor frustration with the targeting at the initial fast paced levels, but controls were very easy, especially after gaining your dark powers. One of the few first person shooters where the game is much more fun when you aren't actually shooting anyone. Finding new, creative ways to dispatch someone takes center stage. I also appreciated the dark humor applied to the darklings. My only complaints are it wasn't very long, but it was probably just long enough for the storyline to continue to be engaging, and not become dull and repetetive. Also the script could've used some tweaking and felt simplistic at times - think stupid mob hitman speak. Overall though a great game and worth playing.

When my i bought this game i thought it was going to another short and scary game. But i was wrong this game is great when you play as jackie and on his 21 birthday he got evil powers then you have to kill your uncle before he kills you. the graphics are great very clear on my tv and the sound is good. the length is kind of short. the only part that is hard is when you are in hell it is too dark and you have to eat the germans hearts in order for them to die completely or they will get back up and start shooting at you. and how it sucks your uncle kills your girlfriend jenny it was kind of sad. the monsters you create are pretty cool like the gunner and the bomber monster ( i forgot the name of it) and how you can use your darkling. so in my opinion this game is great but need to make it more longer and little bit more challenging.
Rated 10 out of 10 by xbox626 It was fun
I loved this game i could not stop playing it, even the demo was fun. the online was ok it was not great, it glitched way to much but every thing else was fun. I did not use my guns as much when i got to chapter 3, i only used the darkness, the guns just got in the way. At the no mansland it was hard but after some time i got it and it was fun. when you get the darkness guns it makes it much easier but finding them was a pain in the neck. i played alot of online and had fun the matched went fast and i got fist place in the first match i played. I would tell people to get this game it was very fun. the storyline was really really good. so i guess in all i give it 10 out of 10. The game play was really good and the controls were good. the end of the game was so sad.I had a hard time controlling the darkness after a lot of time i got it.

I have never heard of The Darkness comics before nor anything about it i saw this games trailer and really wanted to try it out so i rented it and loved it so much i bought it. I loved the storyline so much i started reading The Darkness comics and i am not a fan of reading but i still enjoyed it but back to the game. the darkness powers are very fun to slaughter your enemies with u can bite their faces off, impale them with i giant tentacle arm, shoot them up with your guns or the darkness's guns, and even suck ur enemies into a black hole. your minions or darklings are all so every fun to use especially the berserker when he gets his different outfits and weapons the fire man with the axe, the butcher with the machete, and the street worker with the jack hammer are my favorites. my over all rating for this game is a 8/10
Rated 10 out of 10 by Frunders A Twist of Darkness
At the time of my first purchase of this game I had already played through the second game and expected its predecessor to be a subpar generic action game despite thoroughly enjoying the sequel. I couldn't have been more wrong the main draw of this game to me is that I happen to be an enthusiast of Mafia and Gangster films and this has the elements of a great Mafia film with a twist of Psychological Horror which is something I've never seen done before. The greatest aspect of The Darkness is that the plot and characters are taken from a comic book series made by Top Cow and the video game adaption truly does it justice. Overall even now in 2014 this game holds up well and is truly an individual game not matched or comparable with any other game of the time.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DeceptiveKid17 A great game with a few flaws.
This game is a great steal for the price of $4.99. The graphics are good considering it came out 3, 4 years ago, but The Darkness is the best part about this game. By far one of the most unique ideas for a FPS. The AI is a bit weak, on even the hardest difficulty. (Don't expect much a challenge, especially when you inherit The Darkness Powers) And Jackie. (Main Character) Has extremely slow movements at times. (He doesn't really run, more so jogs) Minus these two things, the game is great. Very addicting and the storyline is really intriguing. My personal favorite thing about the game is the music. I can't help but feel like I'm in a city in Cyrodiil, or exploring a cave from the Oblivion. (At other times, the music just plays annoyingly for no reason at all.) Nonetheless, this is a great 2K Game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Nati A. Face " The Darkness "
ok basically i only bought this game cause i had several dollars left and and saw this game REALLY cheap. so i bought it not expecting greatness since i say " You get what you pay for " and man i was wrong.. This game was totally Amazing in every way, was pretty short, but the real good gameplay made up for it, was never repetitive, you can choose when you want to do your objectives. The storyline is definitely one of the best I've played so far. Using your darkness powers at first may confuse you, but once you get used to it, its hella fun to use. My fav is the Darkness Crawler thing hehe.. Controls for the game are easy to learn, especially when you get the darkness. Little note, this isnt a normal First Person Shooter. The guns are actually very realistic. When you reload, if you still had ammo in your Mag, you will lose that ammo. Sound Quality is great, graphics, real good, even for a game made in 07'. Cool thing about this is when you watch TV its the Full Length show! even when watching a movie haha. but yeah i completed this game and it was tons of fun. If you don't buy it ( seeing its like less than $10 ) you are missing out on an Amazing game. BUY THIS RIGHT NOW!
