But a recycled engine with a few added lighting effects and some updated textures all still in the dark atmosphere I hated in the original engine....i'll pass. Plus I also read it's extremely short.

Hour of Victory ironically is on the ue3.0 engine, not that I knew it when I played the demo. I just found the demo to be pretty fun, very arcadey, call of duty is fine and all, but it gets old, fast to me, this on the other hand had a gameplay-style that I wasnt sick of after playing the 3 missions in the demo.

I'm not a Unreal Engine junkie or anything, I just think right now, it's the most advanced engine out there, I am worried though, so many developers using the engine, I think in 2008/2009, a lot of games are gonna end up looking way too much alike. Kind of like back in 2001 when everyone under the sun was licensing the Quake 3 engine.
The game is called "The Darkness", I'd be disappointed if it wasn't dark like Riddick and Doom 3. Being in the dark is a primary gameplay element as well.
