Storyline

Ser Lev Arris wakes up in a hospital on the planet Crius and has no idea who he is and where he is coming from. He is told by a doctor that he had been frozen 10 or more years ago because he had a disease which was not curable then and that his starship crashed shortly before arriving at Crius star port. As he recovers in the hospital still without any memory he is hijacked by two men in dark uniforms and put in a starship where he looses consciousness. When he wakes up again, he finds himself to be on the planet Hermes. An adventure to find out about his roots begins... Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Karatikus is named after Caratacus, the leader of a British tribe who resisted the Roman invasion. The planet Bex, which produces Bex Beer, may possibly have been named after Beck's, the German beer brand. See more »

Quotes

Lev Arris: Don't you have your own agents for this kind of thing?
Hassan: Never know who to trust in this business, Arris. It's a dirty war. They got moles inside the CIS, we got agents in their organization. We give them the mushroom treatment.
Lev Arris: The mushroom treatment?
Hassan: Feed 'em shit, keep them in the dark.

Interesting engine, poor streaming video
15 December 1999 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

The first time I heard of this game the title was only 'The Darkening' and the preview of it interested me. When it got the Privateer label I thought it would be even better, but I was confused because the preview described a game that took place in a different universe than that of the Wing Commander series, which is where the first game is set.

Regardless, this game has an interesting and stylish flight engine which I thought was really cool--except the fact that you can't hyper-jump when enemies are around, forcing you to fight them (very annoying). Not to mention some of the cool landing cutscenes and interesting computer interfaces in port.

However, the video scenes are pretty bad and have poorly mixed audio--half the time I couldn't understand what anyone was saying.
