I've always thought of Daredevil as the more mature comic book hero. Whereas Spiderman catered to teens that dealt with such complicated issues as pimples, masturbation, suicide, and homework, Daredevil dealt with issues that affected a more advanced audience. In reality, both of them were still targetted to the same age group, but Daredevil fans would stick with him throughout their college years instead of participating in underage drinking (yeah right).
Hot on the tails of the movie, this first-person shooter features Matt Murdoch. Our hero is a man who, due to a horrible nuclear waste mishap when he was younger, has been blinded but is given heightened senses of touch and hearing.
You start off in Hell's Kitchen, I'm guessing inside a building, but I don't know cause I couldn't see. Keeping true to the superhero's powers and storyline, you can't see a damn thing in this game. In fact, I can't count the number of times I lost my walking stick/cane/baton weapon by using the throw (Y) button.
The controller shaking is the best way to know when you're getting hit, that and the fancy red flashes on the screen. I've found that if you just start pounding the buttons, it usually ends up with you winning. I was pretty excited when I finished my first mission.
The cutscenes are where the graphics really shine during the game because the heads up display (HUD) disappears and you actually advance the plot. One of the most frustrating aspects about the game (aside from being blind) is that during one of the cutscenes, Elektra is getting hot and heavy with our demonic hero and you can't see anything. Boy can you ever hear it though.
Mission 8 was a toughie. I've found the best way to kill Bullseye is to circle strafe and spam the X button. If you do it long enough you'll end up winning. I don't even know what the X button does, but it uses a shitload of power so be sure to let it recharge and never stop circle-strafing.
My roommate, who is deaf, thought the game was really crappy. Fuck him, what does he know anyway? The sound effects in the game were superb, including the cocking of all the guns (your sign to start strafing and spamming that X key). "Evanescence - Bring Me to Life" wasn't there though, so the game as a whole was shit. They didn't even have a damn Chevelle song off the soundtrack in the game. How the hell am I supposed to play a game as a blind superhero if the music sucks?
FUN FACTOR: 5
TOTAL: FUCK THAT, THIS ISN'T MATH.
