TTGamer - The Darkness Xbox 360 Review

Creepy Crawly Fun

Nathan over at TTGamer has spent some time checking out one of the latest FPS titles to hit the shelves for the XBOX 360, "The Darkness" from publisher 2KGames. Due to the lack of mouse support, a lot of people tend to steer away from FPS based games on their console, especially if they have a decent PC that's up to the task. However, reading over Nathan's experience with the game there is a good chance it could convert one from this line of thought.

It is said this particular FPS combines a unique form of gameplay with a very immersive and interesting storyline. Needless to say if you're already an FPS fan and spend countless hrs on your 360, this title appears to be an absolute must-have.



Let me admit something off the bat right now - FPS gaming on the consoles has never been a favourite of mine. After playing FPS's heavily on the PC for years, I could never get past the controls and general rigidity associated with console FPS games in comparison to the PC. I knew that if I really gave a console FPS a fair go I'd probably get used to the controls in time and warm up to the idea slightly, but to be honest, I never really found a FPS on the console that either didn't have a PC port which was better, or if it was console exclusive, wasn't replaceable for a better recently released PC FPS anyway. That is until I got my hands on 2KGames' latest release, The Darkness.
