"I've been playing The Darkness a lot lately, and have to say that I'm really enjoying it. It's by no means the greatest game ever made, but I'm enjoying the way it's paced, and I think that the overall execution is absolutely top notch. That said, it does feel a little...familiar.
I mentioned this on The Darkness Hype Thread on our boards, remarking that The Darkness reminds me an awful lot of both The Crow, and 2K's last FPS, Prey. It seems that I'm not alone. In response, 1UP member Cykey PM'd me with a great list of all the ways that the two games are similar, so I thought I'd share them with you as it's kinda interesting..."
