Some of the gameplay is annoying as strawberry float (I'm thinking the WWI sections) but the narrative through-line is amazing. Has to be one of the best stories in gaming and not because of any twists or gimmicks but simply because the characters are so real.
Im probably alone in this but the atmosphere of those sections was so good that i didnt mind them at all. Also i love anything about WW1
which helped alot. But just the whole thing really felt like hell, no evil demons and brimstone, butbeing stuck in a war that never ends, the soldiers literally being stitched back together to fight, and never being able to die,
it was strawberry floating amazing. Yeah the gameplay wasnt great in it (and the darkness guns were actually bloody useless), but it was one of the most nightmarish things ive ever seen in a game.
The Darkness is one of the few games I really, really enjoyed that I've never replayed, and I think those sections are a large part of why. Not because they were so tedious to play (even though they were) but because they're so horrible to experience from a conceptual point of view. They're genuinely disturbing. I didn't enjoy
them in the same way you don't enjoy
the rape scene in Irreversible, but the experience of suffering through it makes the experience of the whole that much better
strawberry float, that sounds really weird.
