Totally Surpassed My Expectations

I have to say that the reviews I read about the game had some influence over my initial view of the game. At one point, after reading a prominent gaming site review, I wanted to take Operation Darkness off my list, but it was too late as it was already being shipped to my house. I'm glad that it did ship here because it completely blew my expectations out of the water. While the camera is a bit of an issue, you quickly get used to it, and what you've got left is a great game. A brilliant strategy rpg that mixes fantasy and sci-fi elements with the real history of World War II. If you like strategy rpgs like Fire Emblem, Operation Darkness is definitely for you. It's a more mature srpg with an engaging tactics system. I can't get enough of this game.

Break down:
Graphic's 6/10 (only saving grace is no glitch parts)
Game Play 10/10 (Remember front line's TBS? this is its cheap cousin)
Story,Plot 9/10 (Bombs? Zombies? Vampires? Heitler?)
Controls 7/10 (View point view point the no)
Replay 6/10 (Has points were replaying it wouldn't be to bad)

But or Rent = Rent

This was a very nice TBS with decent player customization and a very good story line as well as solid easy to understand game play...

However certain features such as a hard to control view point camera and the not up to par graphics compared to other game that come out now a days give this one a shaky score.

Over all the game is great with balanced weapons and AI units as well as a good story line, who wouldn't want to kill a Naze zombie? or a gestapo vampire? That is once you can find him with your camera... The game its self i found pretty easy only dieing accidentally if i forgot to bring enough Rocket propelled grenades or panzerfausts . If you are not a good strategist you may have a issue with dieing... all it takes is to loose 1 main member of your party to achieve disaster (game over) You will find yourself going ........ when you adjust your camera as well, but after a third of the game it will get much easier.

The story in this game will capture your attention. Once i got used to the camera controls during the battles, i thouroghly enjoyed this game. Save often, The AI is sometimes more inteligent than in other battles you will encounter in this game. I kept this one for 2 weeks, the replayablility is good on this one.
