Operation: Darkness

A. Quinton — Mar. 27th 2008

Does the world really need another game that takes place in World War II? Probably not. But what if the ranks of Hitler’s armies were bolstered by vampires, zombies and werewolves? That’s the premise of Operation: Darkness, a forthcoming game for the Xbox 360. From IGN.com:

Operation Darkness puts you in command of a British Special Forces squad during World War II that has been tasked with taking out the Nazis and Hitler while fighting a host of supernatural characters like zombies, skeletons, vampires, werewolves, and even dragons.

To me, this concept sounds more lazy than it does interesting, particularly after taking a look at the lackluster graphics and gameplay at the game’s official web site. I think I’ll stick with my Wii, thanks.
