Game description

"_Series protagonist Jackie Estacado rampages through his enemies, ripping them limb from limb in a bloody dance. The way he bounds through environments, tossing parking meters, car doors and more this way and that, utilizing it to flaunt his destructive abilities is almost artful. _" -Gamespot.com

"A dark, violent comic book given light and heart. a ripping yarn that tears along as fast as you can tear through bodies."- PCGamer.com


The Darkness II is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 release The Darkness.

Unique FPS begging for sequel

If you're looking for a unique FPS experience then you need to look no further than The Darkness II. With a great unique setting taken from the popular graphic novel of the same name and the addition of supernatural powers and weapons this game is a great refreshment from all the military based FPS games that have come out over the last 10 years or so. The only issue is the short campaign (it only takes about 5 hours or so to get from start to finish even on high difficulty). The ending sets up for a sequel that unfortunately never came and most likely will never because the developers were bought up and no longer have the rights to the IP.

A Blast

I came to The Darkness 2 having never read the comics. I actually only found out it originated from a comic book after I finished it. I didn't know anything about anything in this world, but the game looked awesome and I had my expectations high. I was not disappointed. The Darkness 2 is a linear fps game, and it brings awesome new things to the genre. You not only control your standard gun (like in any fps), but you also simultaneously control two tentacles (which are the Darkness manifesting itself). Controlling all these three things at the same time is just a blast. The tentacles have plenty of different moves to help you (they can recover your health or ammo depending of the move you kill enemies with, for example). Now, I want to praise the technical side of this game. Not only it looks absolutely amazing (with an awesome art style), it is VERY optimized. And I mean it. I could play this on a potato with very decent settings so, even if you don't have a beast of a pc, just go for it! The Darkness 2 is an awesome game for people who have never read the comics and fans alike (from what I've heard). It's innovative and fun, but you'll finish the campaign pretty quickly (it took me 11 hours to 100% the game). Grab this one and have a blast.

Shoot, slash, stab, rip... repeat.

The Darkness II is an enjoyable FPS based off of the comic book series of the same name. I've had some experience with the comics, but not with the original game. I got this game as apart of a 2K Games Bundle, so didn't totally know what to expect going in. By the end, however, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the game. It's a bloody jaunt of revenge as you play a mafia aficionado trying to get back your beloved that was taken from you. However, you have powers of The Darkness that consumes and drives you, pushing you along to continue ripping shooting and kill all the things that are placed before you. The story was very enjoyable and held plenty of comic book charm. However, it felt much too short. After getting your upgrades for The Darkness and seeing all the weapons, it was basically over. There's a few nice twists I didn't expect that kept me excited about the game all throughout, as well. Overall, it's fun and enjoyable gameplay, but I can't say that this game is a must. It's worth watching through a let's play if you're curious, but if you enjoy The Darkness franchise than I would say it's definitely worth your time.

Bloody, Gory, Humorous

This game is different from all other games in it's categories. It is seemingly meant to be dark and scary, yet some things will definitely make you laugh like the little monkey demon that helps you on your path to total darkness. The controls are quite easy to figure out, as any other game. You are not limited to singular ways of killing people, but you are able to be tactical and destroy enemies in different ways. You can cause mass destruction with your demonic powers and completely destroy everything that comes in your path. The story line is very peculiar with a great setting and game play.

Come into the darkness Jackie!!!

The Darkness 2 is an extremely enjoyable shooter. It makes you feel like a god if you know what you’re doing. It is slightly more violent than regular shooters, but then again you aren’t playing a regular guy in The Darkness 2. In The Darkness 2, you play as Jackie Estacado, a man who wields the titular Darkness, an ability that lets you do everything from reenacting the chestburster scene from Alien to throwing black holes are your enemies. You get a limited number of weapons to carry and wield, but the number of Darkness abilities you get to wield more than makes up for this. In fact the abilities might even be more fun than the guns. The story is rather decent. There are no giant plot twists or anything, but it is still solid and sets the stage for a sequel, even though it is unlikely we will ever get one. Play The Darkness 2 if you are a fan of shooters. Or want something more fun than a gray brown military shooter. Or just want to play a game that knows how to be fun and serious.
