Eurogamer gives 8 to The Darkness

There are things about The Darkness that will have you gurning with frothing appreciation and leave you in no doubt that Starbreeze is among the most talented developers in the world. Its ability to consistently inject new life into a resolutely tired genre shouldn't be underestimated. Just as Starbreeze managed with The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, the pacing's exquisite in that the game twists and turns in new directions just when it's required.

That is unfair. First I thought 1UP is giving it too much but after buying the game hours ago, I now believe its much more than 9. 8 is a it too low for this game. Its a kool as hell, follows Riddick's quality standards and has TV shows and movies + Multiplayer!

You better buy this game.....please.We need more games like this!

that both 360 and PS3 fans will get to play it. Im tired of playing all sequels and its good to give Devs Props for making an original IP. Im picking this up for sure.

I agree with you MK_Red, Eurogamer can sometime be overly harsh on some of their reviews. Another good exemple is their review of RE4 for the Wii, they gave it only 7/10 while all others gave it 8, 9 and above. So as a result, Eurogamers' reviews have lost some of their relevance for me.

Wow, didn't know they gave RE4 Wii a 7. Gamespot gave Wii version a 9.1.
So if thats the case, Darkness could be much much better than 8 and I really hope so since I've been following this new game for months.

MOre bad news for Darkness, Gamer TV also gave it 8 (4 from 5):

I havent seen other review from them before. Waiting for Gamespot, IGN and GT reviews.

8 0ut of 10 or 4 out of 5 is not bad at all. no game has a perfect ten or i haven't seen one yet. all of them has some kind of problem. some complain about the chronicles of riddick before, (no multiplayer, too short) but i played it and the game was one of the best best game I've ever played , i don't ignore everything that i read in reviews but I'm careful and i check it out myself to see if i like it or not. thats why i like demos, cause it really helps me to make a decision . I'll buy this game asap.

Do you guys only play 10/10 games or something?Read the reviews, they all love this game.

It looks like a good game. I'm going to get it no matter what the reviews say because I'm itching for a new FPS for my 360.
