The game sends you through time to participate in history's greatest battles, but the bland graphics, the cretinous AI, the dull, dull action reduce every scene to the same muddy, floaty, frustrating shoot-out; if you squint, there's nothing to distinguish one level from the last. The tedium is pervasive. It makes killing people such a struggle that I began to question whether it is fun to kill people at all. Probably because I played this just after slogging through that epitome of mediocrity, Wolfenstein, but I was rocked to the core by this existential doubt: if I don't enjoy killing people, then what is there to modern gaming? Suddenly I was deeply bored, frustrated, even annoyed by the entire FPS genre. I never wanted to kill a virtual person again. Darkest of Days did this to me.
