The Darkness Preview |

Eurogamer has a preview of The Darkness, which is based on the comics of the same name & it just happens to be another FPS!

It appears that you can regain your Darkness powers by avoiding lighted areas or if you’re in an area which has lights you can shoot out the lights to regain your Darkness abilities.

Another ability that was revealed is called the Black Hole:

To show it of, Mr Beardy shows us a room with a pool table and activates the black hole to deal with the approaching enemy. Immediately, the screen distorts wildly, and the guy disappears like water down a particularly vicious plughole, dragging anything not nailed down towards it, including chairs and various other items of furniture.

And here’s a nice touch to end proceedings, you can “cannibalise the corpses” of anybody that you kill, transforming them into “Darklings”. I don’t know if you will be able to control them & get them to target certain enemies or if they will just go on a killing rampage. They must be what those weird creatures are that appeared in the video surrounding your character Jackie Estacado or The Darkness as he is known.

  • Sounds just like the kind of game I like to avoid. 🙂

    It’s not my type of game either. If it had of been in a 3rd person perspective then I might be more interested but it’s another FPS & I prefer my FPS to be realistic.

  • In the last little while I’ve played Call of Duty 2 (PC), Battlefield (PC), Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal (PS2), GRAW (360) and Halo 2 (Xbox). I have fun at all of them, but I have to say I like the more realistic ones better.
