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.

Game Informer Rating:

Rated 7.5 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from THIS GAME ROCKED This was honestly one of the best and bloodiest games I've played. The Darkness II is full of heart eating and body slicing. The game does a good job of combining both gun play and devil-ish arm slashing. The only fault in this game is that it is so short, I finished it in six hours and hated myself when I got to the end so quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gory, gritty, fun. The original Darkness was a fun game, but lacked any lasting appeal with the mediocre multiplayer. The sequel returns, and while the campaign is under the lofty standards of the original, the online co-op play is great. The story is one of the most intriguing aspects of the game. You are Jackie Estacado, and after two years, you still cry over your dead girlfriend Jenny. You have money and power, which holds you up a little. The Darkness is inside you, but you kept it at bay for two hears. When The Brotherhood lashes out to retake it, The Darkness comes out again to help exact revenge. All the characters are memorable, from the awesome granny Aunt Sarah, to the twitchy, anxious mess that is Johnny Powell. These characters are brought to life by gorgeous cel-shaded visuals and solid voice acting and soundtrack. Gameplay is aot of fun. As Jackie you control two Darkness arms, as well as two small guns or one large one. You have a basic attack, analog swipes, and a grab function that allows you to perform special executions. These get a bit repetitive, as there are only ten or so, but they are still worth doing to get extra XP to upgrade Jackie. The campaign is only 6-7 hours on Mobster difficulty, but the co-op gameplay is about 4-5 hours for everything, and each character is worth playing as. However, if you plan on playing as Jimmy Wilson, mute your TV. He is irritating to no end, and has no personality or reason to hate The Brotherhood, except that he thinks they are all English. Framerate issues and bugs mar the experience, but patches have been released that fixed some of those. However, the game leaves on a bad note, but the journey was way better than the destination. Friend me on PSN for co-op fun. ID: Zakhaev1998. Also friend me if you plan on buying Borderlands 2 for more cooperative action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Darkness 2 I loved this game. It was very gory and violent. If you havent played the first one i would play that one before you try the second one. You need to play the first one to understand what is going on. This game is just amazing. The guns are good and its just a very fun game. The darkness finishing moves are very brutal and gory but awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was good. It only took me a day to beat it. Ending sucked. There was no stealth kill. You cant summon other dark minions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved it. I recently parted with this game probably the most difficult decision, I pre ordered it back in january grabbed it feb 7th, beat it, Replayed it on ever diffculty 3-4 times. Loved it. I loved the story. It wasn't original but then again what is these days. The game was mayb 6-7hours but time well spent, I'm probably going to rebuy it but on Ps3, I'm a die hard xbox 360 fan but figure since i now have a ps3 i should purchase more games for it. Check it out, not meant for younger children, not scary no nudity, just a fun bloody game. Enjoy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Phenominal Gameplay, but not an original storyline This games graphics were very entertaining, with good action/shooting scenes that in my opinion are similar to call of duty's. The only thing i disliked about the game was that the plot line was ruined for me mid game because it is an exact knock off of the book and movie "Shutter Island."
