    This is an allright game with a great premise and style, but it gets boring very quickly. It probably would've worked better as a 3rd person shooter rather than first person.

    The only things good about this game are the melee attacks and the art style. This game drops the ball on everything else. I felt like a was standing in front of one of those tennis ball lauchers during the entire game, every level just throws enemies at you. On top of that we have: terrible characters, crap dialogue, and absolutely "zero" soul. Worst game I have played in a long time.

    Solid and polished enough to please most enthusiasts and supernatural violence. The plot is nearly D.O.A., but we can forgive it. This game is fun. [Sept 2005, p.74]

    Darkwatch mixes its Western Roots with gothic horror and steampunk aesthetics, and the results are uniquely engaging...Just darned good fun while it lasts. [Sept 2005, p.64]
