IGN Reviews "The Darkness" for PS3

IGN reviews The Darkness, on the PS3:

"The Darkness is a wonderfully gruesome adventure. There are some truly dark and even shocking moments in the story...It's too bad that the AI and gameplay mechanics couldn't be smoothed out a bit more to match the impressive visual presentation. The PlayStation 3 version is virtually identical to the 360, other than the occasional aliasing issues and sporadic slowdown."

As opposed to 7.8, but I guess at least the Margin between the consoles are narrowing come E3 it will Widen in the Ps3's favor

Some nice effect, but the touchy framerate hurts a bit. The Otherworld is particularly cool. The animations in general are weak, though.

I disagree. What makes you think it will widen in the PS3's favor??

I have the 360 version of The Darkness, been playing it for hours and it is one smoothe playing game. Absolutley zero slow-down, no framerate issues or AA issues. Makes it sound like the PS3 version has more problems.

The game is fantastic.. Great story, great acting and is one of the few games that really feels like your playing a movie. Starbreeze rocks! I can't wait to see their new Chronicles of Riddick. I think this game deserves at LEAST at 8.5 if not a 9. I question IGN's scores.

but a few slow downs in a game is hardly a big deal is it?

Guess maybe I am just used to gaming on the PC and it does not bother me anymore.

I think the game is fun as they come at this point. Its different and I believe thats what they were going for...Good job guys...

I might rent it. It sounds pretty short, and I'm not sure if I'm crazy about multiplayer in this game. I think I'll wait for Rainbow Six.

rainbow six beats the darkness in multiplayer
