    I don't know what anyone see's in this poorly made game. The graphics are only average at best, the animation for charecters spells and what not are terrible. And the combat system blows! If this game was for a lower system I'd think more highly of the game.

  1. In the end though, this game feels like a throwback, or an experiment gone wrong. Die-hard ATL fans should rent this first.
  2. It's doubtful that it will spawn any new recruits.

    Darkness' molasses pace, cut-rate presentation, and simplistic throwaway quests leech any sense of drama or importance. [Aug 2005, p.113]
