Are you playing on a normal TV or one with HD? Graphics wise, in HD they aren't bad at all but on a normal TV it looks like crap. The gameplay is not what it was hyped up to be. I do agree on that, atleast until you unlock pretty much all the abilities. The black holes and demon arm makes it a bit more interesting and it does get little bit more difficult farther along in the game. The main story however is what kept me playing the game.

I sm playing it on a 50" Plasma Samsung HD . I was still not happy with the graphics. And much agreed with the Story very interesting. Makes me want to go out & buy the comics. I beat the game in such a short time and maybe that also disappointed me also.

I loved The Darkness, I rented it for 3 days until I finished it and I have to say I'm pretty satisfied. The graphics aren't bad at all Killerhz, I don't know if we've been playing the same game but The Darkness definitely looks good, maybe some posters and objects don't look very good but the textures and the lighting effects are beautiful. I agree that not everybody will like the shooting mechanics of the game but I like it, I also loved the Darkness's powers, especially the demon arm and the black hole.

Story wise it does a fantastic job, the voice acting is top notch and the story line is excellent, especially the twist where you go to hell, that's pretty good, especially the 2nd time around. I love when the Darkness speaks to you, the actor who did that voice is the best actor I have ever heard, in a video and maybe in movies too.

Anyways, I'm just telling those who wanted to buy it or rent it that it's not a bad game, in fact, it's a very good game, one of the best games I've played this year.

Really, the screens looked pretty decent.

This game absolutely OWNED. I don't know how you can sit there and say it sucked, unless you just want someone to call you out on it so you can argue about it. The graphics are better than Gears of War, and the gore in the game looks just as nice, better IMO because in The Darkness you can actually look at the people you are shooting without having to duck for cover before you can see the damage you brought on.
Plus you can do stealth kills/up close kills, where you put your muzzle on the guys face and one in his gut and shoot which looks awesome EVERY time. You get to do it PLENTY of times too.

The gameplay rules, it's a third person shooter played from a first person perspective that works flawlessly.

Honestly, if anyone here is thinking about getting this game, do it, it is awesome. And this is coming from someone who won't touch a game if it gets less than an 8/10 from the majority of critics. I'm extremely harsh on games and this one thoroughly impressed me.
