Manufacturer's Description

The Darkness II is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2007 release, The Darkness, and features an original story by acclaimed comic writer Paul Jenkins.

It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado, now Don of the Franchetti crime family, 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 which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for The Darkness to re-emerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of The Darkness itself.

Key Features:

  • Quad-Wielding Chaos: Slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with the Demon Arms while simultaneously firing weapons, adding a new dimension to the FPS category
  • Kill The Lights: Vicious, flesh-eviscerating supernatural powers only manifest in the absence of light so use or create shadows for a strategic advantage
  • Gripping Interactive Storytelling: Intense and personal story written exclusively for the game by acclaimed comic book author Paul Jenkins whose credits also include The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine and Hellblazer
  • Distinctive Graphic-Noir Style: Graphic novel shading and colour combined with the dramatic lighting of film noir make it feel as if you’re playing a graphic novel
  • Co-Op Campaign: Play as one of 4 unique characters, each capable of wielding weapons infused with Darkness Powers
  • Based on the comic book series created by Top Cow

Product Description

The Darkness 2 is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2007 release, The Darkness, and features an original story by acclaimed comic writer Paul Jenkins.

The Darkness 2 breaks out of the sea of conventional first-person shooters with its fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with their Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with the use of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and engulfed in stylistic violence that is visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique that stays true to its comic book origins.

The Darkness 2 will feature award-winning comic book writer, Paul Jenkins, who will provide a tightly integrated narrative that weaves dark humor with hardcore tenderness

5.0 out of 5 stars the darkness returns... 13 Feb 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i played the original darkness back in 2007 and very much enjoyed the whole game, but it's been a long wait since then, and 5 years on the darkness has finally returned. i'll admit, it's a little different than the last game, but still remains a great first person shooter. the original developer starbreeze studios didn't produce this game sadly, so the unreal tournament developer digital extremes and now in charge.

you're still jackie estacado apart from a new voice actor (i prefer the original actor). jackie is struggling to come to terms with the death of his girlfriend, jenny, he refuses to use the darkness, but that is about to change. the game starts-off with a bang like before, armed thugs from an unknown organization come looking for you and begin attacking a restaurant as he sets down for dinner, suddenly, the restaurant becomes an entire war zone and jackie is badly injured, outgunned and fighting for is life. you most survive their onslaught, use the darkness and escape. i will say no more about the story due to spoiler.

the combat is a vast improvement over the first game, and now controlling the darkness is more involving and extremely satisfying. you are now able to grab enemies from afar with the demon arm and torture them in so many evil ways, you can throw anything, from cars to dustbins at enemies and it's even possible the grab bins and use for cover as you walk while in a gunfight. there is so many ways you can kill, and i've spent quite a few hours finding new ways, so, its certainly very vast. the darklings also make the return.

like in the previous game, you eat enemies hearts to gain darkness power, but this time it brings much reward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game 23 Feb 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Im gonna get over with the reason i havnt given this game five stars. The first is that its kinda short, i played it on the 4th difficulty level and talked to everyone until they repeated dialog, while hunting down every relic and i'd say it lasted around 8-9 hours for me. The second is the vendettas thing feels tacked on and basicly...it sucks.

Okay now why its AWSOME! The characters and story are incredible, it manages to go from funny to heartbreaking and pulls both off better than most games. The voice acting is fantastic and i meen FANTASTIC! please make sure you talk to everyone and listen to everything they have to say. The story is the main star of this game and like the first game manages to be better than the comic book (and iv read most of them) its just so amazing how everything fits together and it just works.

The action is also on par with the story, the usual shooting style of fps games but with the darkness powers on top it makes a very original and brutal game. Shoot, slice, tear apart, rip spines from diffrent places it all gets very very messy :D

Its not as good as the first story wise but it is better gameplay wise and at the end of the day this is a game and one i fully recomend.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been many a year but it finally has returned and it plays better than ever. you are in far more control than last time so the way you take down anyone is limited only by your imagination.
the graphics look better in play than the trailers show, however because it's focused on the comic look it looses the gritty edge it's predecessor had.
concerning stuff to do... there isn't much. you have a "hub" (which is jackies penthouse/mansion) where you can interact with a few people and then go off to your mission, the side missions from the previous game are gone which is a damn shame.
the story won't last long either, it's very short indeed and the end feels slightly rushed however you'll enjoy everything about it regardless.
lastly the multiplayer. it's a half hearted co-op affair focused on 4 characters that "compliments" the main story, it's fun for a quick blast but don't expect anything long term... it's literally there to satisfy the people who only buy games if theres multiplayer.

a classic case of a great game that should of been fantastic, worth full price? definatly but don't expect the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Come to the dark 23 Sep 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Darkness is considered a cult classic and a breath of fresh air by many, the long awaited sequel has not reinvented the wheel, but it is still fun to play.

As a continuation of the first Darkness game (which is based on Top Cow's long running comic series, same universe, slightly different continuity) Jackie Estacado is still wielding the power of the Darkness and is still wielding the burden of grief from the loss of his girlfriend Jenny Romano who the Darkness is still using as an illusion to torment Jackie throughout the game.

In this sequel, the Brotherhood have arrived and they are a sort of secret religious sect, who know what the Darkness is, what it can do and how to get it, so they begin to hunt Jackie down and attempt to take the Darkness away from him.

The plotline for the "Darkness 2" is easy to follow. But it is well written and characters come to life with the sharp and occasionally witty dialog which is throughout the game. (Such as the Darkling, with various phrases as "God Save The Queen" and "Lets crush some heads")and the excellent performance by the entirety of the cast especially Michael Yurchak who gives a cracking performance of Aldolf in the Asylum sections of the game (all will be explained when you play)

Whilst watching E3 footage of the game before it came out, I had fears about the Cell shaded comic book look of the game as opposed to the realistic, dark and gritty approach of the first one, but as I started to use the Darkness to rip apart bodies and eat hearts, I had the feeling that a real approach would have turned people off from the game because of the graphic violence of the Darkness's powers. But the Cell shadedness makes it feel more like a comic and more immersive than say a real approach.
