Reviews for The Darkness II


Brutal, bloody and slightly surreal

First of all I should point out that this is best played with a controller as the controls are so much simpler when used with a game pad. With that out the way, this is an unusual shooter in that the guns are some what inferior to the darkness powers that you possess. As you may have noticed from the promo pics you play as a guy with two strange tentacle like arms protruding from his back. These are some of the most crazy and fun features that you will ever use in a game such as this. Honestly I have never before played a game where you can pick a guy up with a tentacle, spin him round and then swiftly tear him apart, which is some of the most brutal, gruesome fun I have ever experienced in a game. Amazing fun, definitely worth a try.
