    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

    Great in all ways; this game will not let down most of the FPS lovers.

    The front cover of the game got my attention, all rental games were gone and I've bought it immediately. Not very smart but for once I took the risk, and I'm glad I did. Not many good FPS's come out these days but this i... Read Full Review

    Good game but it is jut toooooooo short

    Darkwatch is good shooter game, it is intense at times but mainly it disappoints. The idea of a vampire cowboy is fresh and imaginative but on the other hand it could have been better executed. The storyline lack some de... Read Full Review

    This shooter is a step out the ordinary. A break from typical first person shooters.

    Yeah, I know what your thinking, why should I buy another first person shooter that feels and plays the same way like others? Well this shooter isn't your typical shooter. The story takes pla... Read Full Review

    Darkwatch is good for people who have no interest in multiplayer

    I really liked the single player campaign of this game, being a vampire in the ld west is just plain awesome Gameplay - Excellent, controls are good, all the weapons feel useful, but not to overpowered. Graphics - ... Read Full Review

    A nice change and touch to the world of FPS.

    I've been aching to play Darkwatch since It came out, but I had too many other FPS games to play, get, and/or rent (Battlefield 2: MC, Cod 2: Big Red One). So it was a while before I finally got to play this. I rented ... Read Full Review

    This game is set in the midwest. I like how the developers started off the story and how they kept it going through the game. all around it was to short and leaves something to be desired when it's done. I find the mu... Read Full Review

    The unique setting separates Darkwatch from other FPS.

    Darkwatch is the first FPS I've played on the PS2. I am a veteran FPS player on the PC and was a bit hesitant about using a controller after years of keyboard/mouse shooting. Basically I decided to go for it because I ... Read Full Review
