    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.

    I really liked this game and don't understand why it is getting such harsh reviews. I liked the ideas and the locations were interesting and somewhat educational. The WW2 section had some chilling moments and overall the game is fun and challenging.

    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 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 canI 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. Expand

    Holey crap this game sucks a**! Don't even want to talk about this garbage! The graphics are ugly as h**l, the gameplay is boring, and the A.I., oh my god, its the worst A.I. I have ever seen in years! Plus the idea of using a laser sighted assault rifle in the American Civil War isn't really considered as "fun" to me, its just plain cheating! This game's just complete crap. Boy am I gladHoley crap this game sucks a**! Don't even want to talk about this garbage!

  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.
