A polished diamond!DanielZo0 | June 11, 2013 | See all DanielZo0's reviews »
The Darkness II is like a good polished diamond. It has a great story with psycho elements, you can get confused easily. Gameplay is excellent, no complains here. You can tear enemy with your demonic arms, kill them with a gun, throw a bucket or metal strips to them, also later you can get more abilities, like use swarm of insects, use energy instead of bullets or drop vortex that will suck all around it. But that's not it, you can grab enemy to perform one of four finishing moves, which will grant you different bonus, like health, ammo, shield or faster restore your abilities. It's a nice bloodbath with good variety of gameplay. But I didn't liked the autoaim function, which works even on hardest difficulty and can't be turned off. It helps you when you use a controller, but otherwise it is a nuisance. Slow motion headshot are pretty damn cool, you get the time to looks around for the next enemy. Sounds are done nicely, not like in other games, where if you stand far from talking person you barely hear him. Also killing squishy sounds are cool and of course you will like the "darkness" voice, I can hear it even now! Through the game a darkling demon will help you in some situations, you can even get control of it in some parts of the game. It's about 5-6 hours of gameplay that won't leave you disappointed, the ending will make you excited. One con I found in this game is that there are too many names starting letter J - Jenny, Johny, Jimmy, Jackie, it's annoying. But anyway a game is worth of your time and money
Mob + Demonic = One of a kind gameicolson | June 8, 2013 | See all icolson's reviews »
The Darkness has a unique setting and premise plus having a fantastic graphical art style and very solid gunplay its a great game to recommend especially if you can get it on the cheap.
The guy who does the voice for the Darkness is great he will send chills down your spine as he talks and he seems like one of the most evil people ever so kudos to him.
I did get an occasional bug here and there but for the most part it was not an issue and it ripping peoples hearts out and eating them sounds like your kind of game then you have come to the right place.
Good game in my opinionkalil | June 4, 2013 | See all kalil's reviews »
Very good game, you might call a "Shooter" as the protagonist Jackie has an internal power was lost, That was the dark inner power, desvelaré a bit of this game with your first part to give an example of the dark.
We started getting off of a car, we are with our friend from the mafia "Vinnie" which leads us to the tables with two very pretty young, started talking to them and we can see from the window as they pass a car when suddenly you stuck the twin on the right side (depending on the orientation of the character, I mean Jackie) and then we see that a car through the window destroying completely and leaving leg immobilized, Vinnie finds us and gives us a gun, tells us that we will face all enemy that appears on the road while driving us after we complete this kitchen which is flooded gas and tell Thugs exploit so there were totally injured if we wake up and we move slowly until Darkness leave us free, which does not allow you die, and she is responsible for killing the enemies that were around and leg heals, there can acquire this power, the game is good. Jackie was killed his girlfriend "Jenny" which the, from history will hallucinating with her, the uniqueness of this game is that it is a little confusing because they sometimes have parties where we are in an asylum and all Characters in the history of mobsters appear in the madhouse, this confuses you a bit because you do not know if the Mafia and darkness is real, or a dream or part of Madness is real, or a dream, Jenny also "girlfriend" Jackie is a doctor.
Actually I really liked this game because I value to 10.0 missing something but I loved it, I also loved the part where Jackie telling stories appeared phrases.
You have the ability to use the two whips or Monsters that are on your Right and your left:
On your right you will use it for Hitting
On your left to grab things or Enemies or guns away.
The good thing also is that you have skills and you can find relics unlockable throughout the game, The Darkness II This I really liked this issue because its gameplay is very good, I congratulate you for this juegaso 2K GAMES.
The Darkness 2 nice arcade fps !FreakDeity | June 4, 2013 | See all FreakDeity's reviews »
A great game that is compensating for some of its flaws for a good story, brutal and addictive gameplay and last but not least for its distinctive charm. If you are bored to death by modern shooters with their constant flood of soldiers, tanks and other army-like stuff, and if you are tempted to get intoxicated with an effective obscure power of the Darkness, you should not miss The Darkness 2.

To start things of, yes, I do really love the Darkness game series even though both games are from different companies. What the Darkness 2 sacrificed from the Darkness is that of the semi-open world experience, which can be considered a positive or a negative. Whats good about it is that it can now be able to tell you the story clearer as compared to the Darkness due to its more linear structure. Gameplay wise it remains more or less the same with its quad-wielding mechanics with your character having 2 "tentacles" and having the ability to dual wield 2 pistols or smgs. Overall, highly recommended for its gameplay, story and the excellently narration for the collectibles, making them probably the only collectables in any game worth collecting that do not affect your gameplay in any manner.
