think it was 1996, when I picked up my first copy of the Darkness comic
book. The comic had just the right mix of action and violence to keep
things interesting. After playing the game for a few hours, I’m happy
to say that the game does an excellent job in capturing the “feel” of
the comic book.

Like the comic book, you start out as Jackie Estacado, a hit man, who
finds himself on his mob family’s hit list. As the story unfolds, you
begin to find out the ‘who, what and why’ of your situation. But the
real fun of the game is understanding and using the Darkness, a
semi-parasitic entity that speaks to you and gives you all sorts of
cool ways to do away with your enemies. Hey, there’s nothing like
ripping your enemies’ hearts and eating them to boost your power. But
you have to be a little resourceful, since attacks that use the
Darkness drain it. You’ll have to do most of your dirty deeds in the
shadows, since your power is automatically restored in darkness.

The first-person shooter aspect of the game is fairly good – you get
several types of guns, such as pistols and shotguns, to blow away the
bad guys. But as one would expect, the “wow” factor of the game comes
from using powers of the Darkness. However, where most games would stop
there, Darkness goes a few steps further and actually delivers a
gripping story line, combined with some truly awesome voiceover work.
Add all this together and you have one incredibly fun game that hits
the bull’s-eye for fans of the comic book and first-person shooter
games. -dark abyss
