    The concept would be great if it wasn't for the really really poor execution. Would be a great game if made with the COD engine instead of whatever they used.

    This a great game that could use more polish (not Polish, though that would be fine for WWI and WWII portions). No other game shows the dread of marching to certain death with your civil war brethren or the realistic use of period weapons. Gunning down dozens of rebs with a machine gun is a nice bonus. Lets hope for 1) a patch for the game's hiccups and 2) a better sequel.

  1. Those technicalities take a pretty good game and drag it down into the realm of mediocrity. Still, automatic weapons during a Civil War battle…it’s hard to pass that up.
  2. Gun-crazed gamers just looking for another run-and-shoot romp will find the plodding pace and home-spun presentation distasteful, but Darkest of Days offers everyone else enough fresh and rewarding gameplay to offset its worst problems.
  3. 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.
