Trailer of Operation Darkness

Trailer of Operation Darkness

Success today put online this trailer of Operation Darkness, all in Japanese. Many will probably just assume that this is just another WW2 game to be left in the shadows, but this one actually takes on a whole new genre (for WW2 that is). The video will explain it all, but it's a mix of action, RPG and strategy - something close to Advance Wars.

I'm going to buy this when it's priced down. I think I'll like it then.

[edit] DUDE! How this game moves is fricking amazing O_O, the anti-tank rocket firing looks awesome X_X

When it comes out outside of the best country of the world (Japan), it'll probably get framerate fixes.

Waffen SS, Zombies and Skeletons - wow, what an original and interesting mix of enemies ;-)

looks good. hopefully it comes to the states, although chances are it wont.

That was some of the worst current-gen graphics/animation I've seen yet. You'd think with it not being real-time that they could make it look a tad nicer.

Shame about the graphics because this looks pretty interesting to me.

Plus, is that some delicious huge boobed nazi girl? Awesome.

Definitly at the top of my wanted list, looks great.
Let's hope that it gets translated now (and I wouldn't be suprised if it got translated seing that even Senko no rondo i coming out in english).

this looks extremely interesting. almost like a cross between ring of red and shadow hearts II: covenant

Well it's definitely no AAA Title (B at most), the gameplay elements and military tactics make me very intrigued. While I dunno if i'll pick it up at full price or even at 39.99, it kinda reminds me of Front Mission just without squares and big mechs (excluding tanks). I'll have to keep an eye on this one.

Graphics are TERRIBLE for the 360. No doubt about that.


That's not important! Well, it kinda is, I mean it's inexcusable... But the game looks so unique and interest that I just don't give a crap. If we get it, it'll be $40 and assuming it is as fun as it looks, that will be a great price to pay. Hell, EDF is my favorite 360 game so far, so you don't have to tell ME about gameplay over graphics.

Looks like a yawn feast mixing the boring side of FF with the boringness of a WW2 game
Commented on 2007-04-28 15:35:54
Demons, summonings, magic, WW2, tanks, guns, swords, RPG, Strategy!


I like it though, the trailer got me interested.. Do you think they will release it in Europe?

Another JSRPG for the 360? So in year 2 that makes more than in the entire run of the Xbox?

About the game

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (4 Hours ago)
