  1. Darkest of Days provides a unique and overall well put together single player campaign. Any fan of action games or time travel mechanics should give this one a serious look.

    I thought the game was really good. Yes the graphics aren't the best but I still hope they make another game.

    I found this game to be quite enjoyable, the AI is crap of course and there isn't as many time periods i would like and the graphics are moreI found this game to be quite enjoyable, the AI is crap of course and there isn't as many time periods i would like and the graphics are more of an early 360 game like Gun. All in all however i found it to be fun with an entertaining storyline and fun gameplay. My favorite battles were in the Civil War missions and the last mission. there really isn't another shooter anywhere where you can blast a Roman legionnare in the face with a shotgun. In conclusion at least rent this game or borrow it to see if you like it or wait until the price drops and if you do buy it because i want another one of these games to come out. If you are one of those people who just have to have good graphics you are not going to like it, but to me it was a breath of fresh air from all the CODs out there. Full Review »

    Dissappointed in these low reviews Scores. Its like orginality doesn`t count anymore and the gaming Industry just need needs to give us Copys Dissappointed in these low reviews Scores. Its like orginality doesn`t count anymore and the gaming Industry just need needs to give us Copys of the same overdone Concepts of old games to make a buke. I for one enjoyed Darkest of Days. A small Developer set out with a new fresh Concept, Homebuild Engine to deliever Entertainment and that it did, yes it does have some flaws but honestly every game nowaday has them. so I am given this a 8 because the engine may not look Mega Good but the graphic works for the setting, it uses lierally hundreds of units that act on screen, and i really enjoyed the small details like the the good use of the physX engine like the fog and weapon detail effects.
