This game is awesome!

The controls have that "Goldeneye" fluency to them, it has gore and awesome hit detection and damage, it's atmospheric.... got everything. Now THIS is my kinda game, Starbreeze have done it again.

I really don't like this game that much and the MP sucks ass. SP is ok but the framerate hurts my eyes. By the way im playing the 360 version.

Won't make a difference. The game is rendered 720p natively.

Awesome, awesome, AWESOME game.

My fave game on the 360 to date, it's that good. I like the interaction with regards to talking to random people, like you did on Riddick. Ringing people, making arrangements etc gives it a water down RPG feel, and it has that gritty Max Payne thing going on.

I hope this makes it to PC, it deserves a wider audience. Folks without a PS3 or 360 are seriously missing out here.

Enjoying it so far. It's a little buggy and the framerate can get awfully dodgy at times but it's a blast to play with some great humor!

360 version btw, so I guess it's not just the PS3 version that suffers the FPS issues.

GamerGuyX - Little off topic, and I don't mean to speak ill of the dead but I hope Chris Benoit burns in hell (if what I heard is true of course).

Just completed it and what can I say... WOW!

Best shooter since Max Payne, simple as. An amazing piece of work.

I love that gritty style and dark humour.

I love this game as well. Make sure you guys collect all those notes and complete those side quests. The extras in this game are great! I love the digital comic books and the available art work.

You mean magus's vague "better lighting" isn't shown? Gee thats funny.

Magus, on the other hand, except for the mention of the head2head that no one without a paid account could watch, you had no evidence did you. Because SS's certainly don't tell that tale...

The X360 looks washed out... Lets see how you spin this... go on and say how yours looks nothing like this, of course you have less proof then i since I have two videos that show a difference while you have nothing but your word.

Man, I love this game. I've now used the "I'm gonna shove my hand down your ****ing throat and pull a rabbit outta your ass" line countless times at work.

Well in all fairness when you first launch The Darkness on the 360 you have to set the games gama levels. If you think the 360 version looks washed out then that is directly attributed to incorrect gama settings.
