Default Darkest of Days

I downloaded this unpolished, ugly looking game demo from XBL the other day, and I must say it was interesting, regardless of the low production values. As a closet timecop fan, going back in time with uber powerful weapons really hit that spot where no other FPS did before. I fully expect to see this for $9.99 or less by xmas, which is how much it's worth.

But man, were those some low resolution textures...

I saw some very bad reviews for this game. Neat concept, flawed delivery.

Well I got a chance to play this recently (thanks to my brother and his quest to own every game ) and it well & truly sucks. Much like Turning Point, it's a fantastic concept but terrible game.

Agreed with others up here... Neat concept. But shitty game with neat concept is still shitty.

I will say it was utterly (admittingly, not intentionally) hilarious that they gave me an automatic rifle during the American Civil War. Shooting them dirty rebs was a cake walk.

The only reason I would EVER play this is to get the achievement for killing a horse by punching it.

Why did no one tell me that there's a Civil War campaign.
Some instant buy now.

I want to kill some bloody, over-industrialized, undereducated, Lincoln loving, warmonger yankee scumbags*


*defeated you, due to amount of swear words.
