At its core, Darkside is a visually-polished, high-octane arcade shooter. The lighting effects are particularly great, and though the 3D gameplay takes awhile to get used to, it's a nice change to standard top-down dual-stick games. The free version offers exceptionally high-quality action, even if it's only through the arcade mode. Overall, Darkside is a gorgeous and thrilling sci-fi ride - well worth a buck if you're prone to putting a lot of time action games, and a great free option if you're just looking for a casual (and very pretty) fling.
