What Gamespot Users have to say about Operation Darkness

  • User Rating 8

    <br /> It's a Niche Game for SRPG players whom enjoy the WW2 genre..with some twists and turns along the way.

    Greetings ! I purchased Operation Darkness recently and put in about 30 hours of play, and I love it so far, yes the Camera angle isn't great but from what I understand the Game Dev's never inten...

    An operation worth taking if you can get past a few flaws

    Operation Darkness is the latest title from Atlus, the company behind Persona 3. Here you're a member of the Wolf Pack, a British special forces group that at first appears as your everyday unit fight...

    Wow. 25 years of gaming and have never seen critics miss their mark this badly.

    Although I give credit to gamespot. They have come quite close in their review. It is spot on save the gripes about the camera. It is not nearly as bad as they say. If you hit the Y button you get a c...

    Great game with a wonderful story!

    Rated on July 15, 2008 by jase2005

    Although crude by today's standards there is a very enjoyable game and entertaining story to be found in Operation Darkness. I'll be straight to start out. This is a WWII era turn based strategy R...

    A unique Strategy Role Playing experience, similar to Final Fantasy Tactics.

    Rated on July 21, 2008 by SkeletalKnight

    I'd been excited about Operation Darkness from the moment I saw the first preview of it. I'm a big SRPG fan, and I'm also a fan of some of Atlus' other games. Now that I've actually played the game, I...

    Sometimes frustrating, but anyone can enjoy Operation Darkness

    Rated on July 28, 2008 by godofhell2

    This tactical Role-Playing is a frustrating one and not exactly friendly to beginners but can be really good for some. Positive - Wonderful story - Strategy is decent - Add some interesting thi...

    A solid 7 Atlus title. Like most Atlus games, it's fun but contains frustrating bits that make it good, not great.

    Rated on August 03, 2008 by BillyAngst

    I'm a sucker for Atlus games (and shiny limited editions), so regardless of how goofy this game looked or the zero press i'd heard about it, i picked it up. And couldn't believe how awkward the combat...

    A good set up, that never really follows through.

    Rated on April 11, 2010 by MoeFo_Jowler

    A squad of elite Werewolf commandos armed with magic and machine guns duke it out with a bunch of Nazi loving vampires. Sounds awesome, right? Well it is, at least for a little while. The game ...

    Rated on September 11, 2008 by airsoftmanic

    Xcom UFO Defense in a Surreal WWII setting. Must buy for turn-based junkies :)

    Rated on October 08, 2008 by one11

    A game sole purpose is to be enjoyable. Decomposing the game in areas (graphics, sounds, mechanic) is pointless IMO. It's about the sum of its part AND the core demographic the game is aimed at. Ev...
