The Darkness II is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 release The Darkness. Inspired by the popular comic book series produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II is an intense first person action game that delivers a twisted and gripping narrative of tragedy, modern crime drama, and supernatural horror. Players will be 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 game that features Quad-Wielding: the ability to utilize four different weapons independently and simultaneously.

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.

All in all, great game, totally worth it! But like the box says, NOT FOR CHILDREN OR THE SQUEAMISH! (Although, the 'strong sexual content' is only in one game area, which is only open for a short while, and the ACTUAL content is hard to find)
The Darkness 2 is a good-great game on its own without being compared to the first game. It is your typical first person shooter with the twist of controlling two monsters while shooting at he same time. It works so smoothly that u ain't gonna believe it. In addition to that, the graphics are cell shaded, but unlike the other cell shaded games hat look cheap, The Darkness 2's look so smooth and of great coloring filters that would change your opinion about cell shading. It is that Good.
Now, when compared to the first game, th sequel has a lot of serious problems IMO.
-The game is so linear compared to the semi open world system of th first game.
-It stays totally true to the comics that ruined the original game's story
- its campaign is barely 6-7 hours long.
- The soundtracks are so generic and boring
- The Co-Op mode is boring
If u loved the first game, u have to get the 2nd even though u might hate it. If you are never into the first game, I think u should get both.
My only problem with the game was that it was way too short. They have side missions that you can do with other characters who also have darkness powers, and these extend the gameplay, but not significantly and are very loosely tied to the main plot. Game-play time is also extended by the "New Campaign+", but it's just a replay of the same campaign, but you'll still be building your skill tree and learning new darkness powers. If you buy the game for under $20 dollars, the amount of play that you get from the game is well worth it
I didn't like was that the sequel has a more restrive, less free-world atmosphere. Also there were huge differences with your darklings. First of all you only get one, and it has zero customization. There is a short level where you can control your darkling, but besides that the only thing your darkling does non-storyline related is randomly hold down an enemy and your can throw him at an enemy and he will claw him to death. Also I thought that the alternative shooting realm section (similar to when you went to WWII in the original) was way too short and less emersive and more linear.
I really hope the make a third Darkness games, as I am a huge fan of the series. If they do make a third I would like to see more story-based gameplay, more darkling functionality (maybe something like how you use your minions in the "Overlord" game), a more emersive alternitive realm section, and a more open-world design. These feature that were lacking in "The Darkness II" combined with the great gameplay and wonderful story-telling that was present in the sequel will make for one fun gaming experiance.
Bottomline is that this game would be great for those who enjoy shooters, but would like to experiance something that doesn't follow your traditional run and gun gameplay. It would also be a good game for people who liked the first Darkness game andor enjoy a great storyline. Basically this game is for a gamer who wants a quick, fun, unique, and entertaining and is looking for a discounted and cheap experiance. For $20 or less, this game is worth every penny.
