With this kind of setup, you may be expecting a full-on shooter, and while that description isn’t terribly inaccurate, The Darkness features more downtime than you might expect. Moments like taking the time to sit on a couch and snuggle with your girlfriend and visiting your aunt remind me more of something like Indigo Prophecy than anything you normally see in shooters, and the open city requires you to spend a decent amount of time traveling through different parts of town using the subway system
It doesn’t quite have Riddick’s pacing, due to the open city that asks you to find your own way through, but it presents a better feeling of accomplishment and familiarity by the end.
It’s easy to forgive. Overlord may remind the more experienced gamer of a mass of things, but it’s only so identifiable as they’re conventions which relatively few games have used successfully. And when a few quick clicks send a spindly-limbed wave heading over to cause havoc, it’s its own thing. As much of a monster as you are, when you see a powerful succubus flying through the air, covered by your little green guys, holding on with one hand and stabbing desperately with the other, you end up feeling… well, a little parental.
Aún así, no se dejen levar por el «Jaip». Hasta que nosotros no lo decimos, los juegos no molan.
