Darkwatch review

  • Firepower by the barrelful
  • Horsey-back rides
  • Solid FPS action
  • Not that scary for a horror game
  • Playing alone
  • Garlic

We all make mistakes while trying to make our way through this crazy world of ours.  So we can empathize with Darkwatch hero, Jericho Cross when his well-intentioned train robbery goes awry and gets him bitten by a Vampire Lord, turning him into a blood-thirsty creature of the night. It could happen to any of us.

What results is a high-octane FPS set in the Wild (Wild) West of 1876 that packs in kicks like shot of saspirilla.  We’re fairly sure that much of Darkwatch’s arsenal didn’t exist back then.  But in fairness, there probably weren’t many flying gothic maidens that could shoot fireballs around either, so we’ll grant the coders some creative license. Never knowing when a character is going to start spitting evil will keep you on your undead toes.
