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.

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.

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.

I got this game for the brutalness and the story, the game delivers but it is not worth $50-$60. I would recommend waiting until price drop, i got this game and got a $10 credit from amazon for preodering and still feel slightly ripped off because of story mode and online co op mode being so short. Also starbreeze who made the 1st game with so much amazing content(watching whole movies with jenny i you wanted in the apt) did not make this one so thats why it is alot of subtle changes most people will not notice. Again it is fun,but it has no replay value and alot of content cut from the 1st game. WAIT UNTIL ITS CHEAPER!!!!!!!!

This review will not go into all the details of what the game is about as others have done that well enough. I will just give my perspective. I got this game for myself after playing the demo. I really liked the different dimension that the demon arms gave to the gameplay and the concept of the darkness and Jackie's battle against it.

I am not a big gamer and will not win any online multi-player contests, but I am not a complete newbie either. I like to pay a variety of games and this one was basically a linear 1st person shooter with the added dimension that the arms provided. I like a good story in my games and prefer them to not be too difficult such that it gets in the way of the story. I was able to complete this playing a mixture of the two lowest levels, and in most cases it seemed pretty easy. However, there were times where I did get frustrated even on the easiest setting. I am pretty certain I would never get through it on the ultra hard level, although maybe I could on one of the middle levels. As I will mention later though, I will probably not ever find out.

I am sort of torn on this game, because I was interested enough in the story to want to keep playing, but after having completed the story and all of the vendettas and everything, I don't have a great desire to continue playing it. It is fun and the gameplay is more enjoyable to me than just another Call of Duty knockoff. In fact, I did play through much of it over again on a higher difficulty setting after my character was powered up, but I was mostly trying to just find the extra relics - which I did - but for some reason they did not count towards the achievement and now I don't have the desire to go back and get them all again - probably because of some of my other issues with the game.
