"offline MMO" pretty much sums up Reckoning with the notable difference being combat isn't a hotbar fest. Gears of War it is not, but it's a step up from your average aRPG in terms of combat.

Presentation wise it's completely generic, which is something awful when Todd Fucking McFarlane was supposed to on board as an artist. The score is passable fantasy fare but not much stands out.

Game compares strongly to Two Worlds; lot of humdrum content kept afloat by copious amounts of combat, loot, and leveling up. For fans of the hack'n'slash it's good for $30-$40.


Darkness II, on the other hand, I am quite taken too. It's a solid (but short) shooter, presentation is rock solid (Hollywood score across the board, great voice acting), and is a welcome reprieve from all the pseudo-realistic military bull shit out there. I really loved the art direction in particular... it's basically as good as cel shading can get.
