Darkwatch

I got Darkwatch last weekend - wanted to buy Sniper Elite but they didn't have the Xbox version - and I've been pleasantly surprised; there's nothing very original about it but IMHO it's one of the best FPS games I've played on the Xbox:

- production values above average, decent Havok physics

- fairly novel setting - you're a vampire cowboy...

- fair checkpoint system

- straightforward, fun run'n'gun action.

Most importantly, I think most of the weapons have a lot more feel and kick than many console FPS games. You know, where you spray enemies with bullets - which have no real discernable effect - until they keel over.

My only concern is that it's pretty short. I've been at it for less than 10 hours this week and I must be right near the end. One advantage to that length, though, is that I'd be prepared to go through it again on a higher difficulty level.

Anyway, IMHO worth at least a budget buy or rental.

Played up until the geezer on top of the train, thought it was shite.

I was pretty much ready to return it after the first few levels. I gave it one more go, got a bit further, and that's when I suddenly started liking it. It gets a lot better (IMHO of course) later on.

Still, horses for courses etc

It does get a lot better. It's still not-brilliant, but it turns into a nice Serious Sam-with-vampires type of thing.
