    Great, original shooter.

    I had anticipated darkwatch since it was announced in 2003, so i may be a bit bias. Though not the best shooter ever, Darkwatch give shooter fans something new instead of constant military and sci-fi games. Darkwatch is ... Read Full Review

    "BloodRayne" meets "Halo". Gory fun.

    This much hyped "Vampire Western" first-person shooter is finally out and I'm glad to say that it's a pretty good one. "Halo" it ain't, but "Darkwatch" does borrow a few things from Microsoft's masterpiece. As mute outla... Read Full Review

    Despite it's weaknesses, this game is oh so cool!

    On paper Darkwatch is a pretty standard first person shooter. In practice it is so much more fun; simple, straightforward, mindless, action packed fun. Set in the old west, the story behind the game is fairly weak. A ... Read Full Review

    Mowing down hell's finest in the wild wild west is oh so satisfying.

    If shooting up average, uninspired soldiers in a dismal jungle is getting a little too old for you then grab a copy of Darkwatch. This game presents original ideas and solid gameplay to boot. Its a thrill ride of the und... Read Full Review

    Its fun, but there are a few draw backs

    Darkwatch is a first person shooter with a western theme tied with a horror/vampire theme. It sounded weird to me, but it worked and it worked well. It has a great plot and it actually feels like you are watching a B mov... Read Full Review

    Wild West, Vampires and Rose Mcgowan....
