The Reemergence of the Darkness

In The Darkness II players are taken down the brutal and personal path of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction known as the Darkness. The Darkness II stands out visually with its distinctive graphic noir style, and it is the only first person shooter to feature quad-wielding: the ability to simultaneously utilize four different weapons (2 weapons and Jackie's Demon Arms).

It's been two years since Jackie Estacado used the Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend's murder. He's been unable to shake the memory of Jenny's death since bottling up his supernatural power and now the Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie's life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war and opens the door for the Darkness to reemerge. The botched attempt sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of the Darkness itself.

'Vendettas' Co-op Functionality

Vendettas, a co-op multiplayer mode for The Darkness II that can be played with up to four people. The story of Vendettas runs parallel to the events of the game's single-player campaign, and features a cast of characters with unique abilities and histories tied to the Darkness.

Key Game Features

  • Quad-wielding Chaos - Slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with the Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons, adding a new dimension to the FPS category
  • Harness an Unstoppable Power – Master the Demon Arms and summon the powers of The Darkness for even more explosive gameplay
  • Kill the Lights – The vicious powers of The Darkness manifest only in the shadows so use the environment to your advantage and watch out for enemies who will use light as a weapon
  • An Intense and Personal Journey – Experience a dark, twisted and gripping story written exclusively for the game by acclaimed comic book author Paul Jenkins whose credits also include The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine, and the original The Darkness game
  • Distinctive Graphic-noire Style – Graphic novel shading and color combined with the dramatic lighting of film noir pays tribute to the source material and brings the pages of the comic series to life. Inspired by the popular comic book series created by Top Cow
  • 4-player Co-op – The Vendettas co-op mode features 4-player support, as well as a separate story and unique characters with abilities tied to the Darkness

3.0 out of 5 stars Visceral Multi-Tasking! February 12, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ever wish you had another pair of arms? How about a pair of superhuman bloodthirsty demon arms that can rip a door off of a car or throw a metal pipe through a goon and stick him to the wall? That would leave your hands free to dual wield machine guns! With Darkness II, this is what you get.

Story: 7/10
This game picks up after the traumatic events of Darkness. Jackie, a mob boss with demonic powers deals with the loss of his true love. The game begins with a rival hit squad trying to take Jackie out. Critically injured, he must summon the Darkness to survive. As Jackie seeks revenge, he discovers that this is more than just a simple mob hit and it involves supernatural forces. Unfortunately, the story is told very deliberately and slowly. There are cut scenes within the missions, but there are also long segments of the game where Jackie is in his mansion and has to walk from 'family member' to `family member' and ask one question. This can get a bit tedious. Mansion aside, the story is fairly complex and moves well as you progress through the game.

Gameplay: 9/10
Jackie's attacks are pretty amazing. While he is in the dark, he's got enough supernatural powers to fill up 4 skill trees. His demonic arms can rip enemies in half, while giving you a boost to your (health, powers, shield, or ammo) and interact with the environment. The arms can throw fan blades, poles, heavy objects, or use car doors as riot shields.

Jackie also has two other types of magic attacks. He can summon a swarm of insects that distract and harm enemies. He can also infuse his bullets with dark energy allowing them to seek targets and shoot through walls. Both of these powers work on a cool-down timer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unleash the Darkness February 8, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had begun to forget how much fun videogames could be. Shooters especially. The genre is just so uninspired it seems. It feels like the market is flooded with Call of Duty clones and I don't see that trend changing any time soon. I really loved playing RAGE last year but even that was a pretty derivative game, no matter how tight the shooter mechanics were. The Darkness II is a beacon of hope. The shooter genre isn't doomed to endless, uninspired knock offs. Not yet at least.

Let me start by saying that I enjoyed The Darkness. I liked it but I didn't love it. There were some cool ideas and an interesting story to be told but it didn't grab hold of me and thrash me into submission. The Darkness II, I'm glad to report, is exactly what I would ask for in a sequel. The story of The Darkness II finds Jackie Estacado, anti-hero of the first game now the head of mob. It has been two years since Jackie last allowed the Darkness to crawl out of its cage and he has had time to mourn the loss of his love, Jenny. Out of nowhere a hit comes down on his head and Jackie is forced to unleash the Darkness to defend himself and those he cares about. The story of the first game was an origin tale, the explanation of how Jackie came into this evil power and why he uses it. The story of The Darkness II is a much more intimate experience, as Jackie lives through the guilt of what happened to Jenny. For a game with such hyper-violence it is really unique to find such a soft, sweet side. The player relives memories through Jackie's eyes and it's not difficult to see why he fell in love with Jenny to begin with. Jackie's dialogues in between missions are also very telling of his personality. He may be a cold blooded killer. But he has a heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars partly better, partly worse than the first March 26, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
first of all i absolutely loved the first 'darkness'. it is one of my favorite games. the story really drew me in, the gritty feel and mood and atmosphere felt just right, it was fun to play, and i even liked the soundtrack. i was very excited when i saw that part two had been released. does it live up to how i felt about the first one? well, it is different.

on the positive side, i love being able to use weapons and use the darkness at the same time. i didn't use the darkness as much in the first game, because i concentrated more on shooting. it was too much of a pain to worry about switching back and forth, so i stayed more with the guns, and there is probably a lot more i could have done with the darkness powers that i just didn't figure out. in part 2, i find myself using combinations of the two, and finding new ways to be even more powerful and destructive towards my enemies, and it is intoxicating. it seems like you can use your environment (car doors, poles, desks, wheels, etc.) more, and slicing an enemy in half by throwing a shield or a door, or impaling them with a javelin, is just awesome. there are also more different types of guns that you can use, which makes things interesting. the special execution kills you can perform are gorey and graphic and satisfying. i don't really miss some of the extra powers from the first game, like summoning the various little gremlin guys (now you just have the one, and that's fine with me, plus he has more personality and is funnier) or having the creeping darkness power (i found that kind of a pain to use. at one point in the story you do get a kind of similar power, but i won't give it away.) in fact, one of the positives in the new game is that you can earn credit towards customizing jackie with new darkness powers of your choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Less ambitious than the original, but still solid
A fun fps, if slightly by the numbers, especially in comparison to the first darkness. The strong story bumped it up to a 4 star, for me at least.
