    Ive been playing this today and all I can say is "if you own a 360, you must get this game!"

    http://uk.gamespot.com/xbox360/action/thedarkness/index.html?tag=result;title;0

    Its a supernatural style first person shooter that plays like a movie. From what Ive seen so far, this is going to be a contender for game of the year. Apart from the great storyline (a mobster betrayed by his uncle, a mafia boss, seeks revenge while being used as a 'host' for a demon called 'The Darkness') the games visuals and sound effects are mindblowing (and thats not an exaggeration, they really are that good!) The game also has some great touchs, one of my favourites is feeding the hearts of your victims to the tentacle like creatures that are sprouting from your spine and the fact that the demon inside of you generates in the dark so you have to shootout any street lamps/striplights in the area...Im sure there are more things like this to come as you play further into the games (which I WILL be doing shortly lol)

    I hope this little mini-review is of interest to you 360 owners....now go and get it! :D

    Tell me about it. All my friends have one, but of course I put all my saved up money in the PC. Go figure...
