The Darkness was not a good game at all. The films and video clips you could watch on various tv screens were the only good gimmicks, the rest of the game was a barren, boring, frustrating, underwhelming experience. I paid Ł5 for it and only completed it out of sheer determination, went and sold it within minutes of finishing it.
The darkness is a good shout - bought that for a 5er about 3 years ago. Really enjoyed the story. You could watch a whole film on that game! Forgot what it was...
