Gaming Union: "Darkest of Days is a game that essentially shoots itself in the foot. The sections of the game that are fun are marginalised and the majority of the game focuses on boring period sections. It's a real shame, as the futuristic weapons are what defines the title and players seldom get the opportunity to use them. The presentation is also very lax and the story, despite having an interesting premise, falls flat. Darkest of Days isn't overly endearing and shows that tampering with history isn't necessarily a good thing."
