Operation Darkness is a turn-based tactical RPG developed for the Xbox360 by Japanese studio Success and released in late 2007. It was licensed to Atlus for its American release in mid-2008. A fairly standard take on the tried-and-true mashup of World War II and the occult, the game follows a squad of SAS soldiers - the Wolf Pack - fighting the Nazis across the European Theater and eventually attempting to assassinate Adolf Hitler himself. The so-called Wolf Pack's membership includes Edward and Jude, a pair of infantry soldiers reassigned after their last mission resulted in the death of their platoon; Cordelia, a firestarter; James Gallant, the leader (and a werewolf); Keith, the point man; Frank, a close-combat specialist; Cynthia, a top-heavy Irish sniper; Herbert East, a medic and the only character who can revive dead soldiers; and, um...JackTheRipper.

Generally very poorly received by critics, the game has nonetheless found its cult following, most of whom will admit that it has more than its share of flaws (The nearly complete lack of any kind of tutorial, there's very little explanation of the effective use of cover mechanics, the abounding Narm) (that the entire main cast is voiced by popular professional VA's helps too) but remains enjoyable nonetheless as a result of its handful of unique gameplay mechanics and its straight-faced treatment of its decidedly ridiculous and somewhat Troperiffic subject matter.
