Default The Darkness Review

I'm still on the fence about this game. Maybe if they put out a demo and I like it I'll buy it.

9.0/10 from 1up.

Thanks... funny because I wasn't really interested in the game at all... but when I found out it was coming close to being out, I figured I would rewatch some trailers and no I am semi-hyped for it... was waiting to see a review... probably gonna preorder today or tomorrow... hopefully I can get the Darkling figurine .

Given the riddick for the 360 had good reviews I'd expect this to be at least on par, the graphics in the screen shots look pretty nice. These days however I download the demos on xbl before buying as I always have too many games to play and play testing first helps me decide if I will play it.

It uses an updated version of the engine they used for Riddick (the Starbreeze engine), not UE3.

It will be soon. They're doing a remake along with including a new chapter or something along those lines. They also renamed it to something else.....sorry I'm not much help. haha

I'll probably get this one just to support Starbreeze but I'm a little concerned about a "dark" game when I'm sitting a few feet from the screen.

Are you sure? Cause in the newest xbox magazine they interviewed the developers making the 360 version and the editor made a side note that riddick for xbox would never be added to the compatibility list, the only way to play riddick was through the new release on 360 with a few added effects and levels.
