  1. A better game than a Skittles-licensed game has any business being.
  2. Hands down, this is one of the weirdest games I’ve played this year. But it’s also the funniest.
  3. 60
    It's a short-lived adventure that experienced gamers will pass with flying colors (pun) and little intrigue.
  4. 60
    Filled with some of the finest script writing and voice acting in a game. No joke. While some games like "BMX XXX" make weak, flailing attempts at humor, Darkened Skye consistently pulls off laugh-out-loud dialog.
  5. Game Informer

    Sky's laundry list of quests is strangely solid in both its simplicity and repetitive challenge. [Dec 2002, p.130]
  6. The script for the game is very well written and the voice acting is superb. However, the rest of the game ranges from average to downright boring.
  7. Everyone who plays Darkened Skye should at least love the save system. You can save anywhere, anytime, even right in the middle of a boss fight after you've got your opponent's energy half way down.
  8. Nintendo Power
    50
    A dizzying camera scheme and a frustrating combat system put a damper on an otherwise enjoyable experience. [Nov 2002, p.224]
  9. Play Magazine
    60
    Underwhelming from a graphics standpoint compared to today's top adventures, but still worth a peek if you're fond of a good parody or just really like the backside of a shapely female. [Jan 2003, p.76]
  10. Cheat Code Central
    50
    Suffers from an unoriginal story and uninspired gameplay.

    I'd give it an 11 if it were allowed, quick wit and tongue in cheek humor made for more thought than brawn and i like that! All the I'd give it an 11 if it were allowed, quick wit and tongue in cheek humor made for more thought than brawn and i like that! All the controls were customizable so people who complain about the controls you've got options people! Also the skittles made it a little more fun and less guts....i like less guts! Full Review »
