So Close...

Mcdudebob | Aug. 3, 2013 | Review of The Darkness II

I felt the game started off with it's best foot forward..... straight down a flight of stairs.

I only jest. I felt the game play to be thoroughly engrossing at the beginning with swift, almost improvisational combat and a dash of creative flare. but as the game progressed the enemies became bulkier, bullet spongey androids. this caused the combat to lose what had made is so special. the ability to quickly mow down enemies was lost, and with it much of the game's charm.

The game also dabbled in the use of mental health as a part of the story. while this was actually very engrossing at first, it was never really taken far enough. And, like the combat eventually stumbled over its self.

Don't get me wrong this is by no means a bad game. it this looks interesting to you, I would still recommend you buy it. Digital Extremes did a lot of things right. The game is simply not what it could be.

This is a game for the true stealth fanatic. With mechanics and immersion that hearken back to the good old days of thief, this game is a definite buy. The one major complaint that I can hold against this otherwise phenomenal game is that it favors a non lethal play through a bit heavy handedly. If you are an old time stealth player, or even if you are not, i recommend you lose yourself in the city that is Dunwall.
