Product Details:

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 Cool game with a good story I actually really liked this game and I really loved the storyline. I actually like it better the first game, which I could not get into, no matter what. Thankfully, you do not need to play the first game to understand the story because it explains everything you need to know from tone first game, so confusion. The game , however, is only six hours long but it's very worth replaying because you get to find hidden items which very interesting story to them. The second thing that I'll mention is that the game has a frustrating ending to it but given but how much this game is, it almost doesn't matter but trust me, the ending is really frustrating. Most people complain about the graphics but I think it looks good cell-shaded as it is and it does look like the comics that games are based off of. The game play is worth your time and it comes to show that both graphics and game play are awesome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Repetitive gamplay and no storyline. After playing this game all the way through I came down to the conclusion that this game is nothing but slashing, bashing, shooting and guts with no thinking involved. The first part of the game was interesting and seemed like it had potential (That's why I bought it). After about halfway through the story, it fell apart. The gameplay was the same throughout the entire game, the storyline was about Jenny and the Darkness and all the enemies were the same. The storyline seemed as if it was written up in a day. Overall, this game was pointless and mindless. In my own opinion Darkness 1 was much better...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than the 1st!!!!! this game is way better than the first one,because of the quad-weilding gameplay to shoot,grab,slash and throw things at your enemies.overall,fantastic game sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!! Perhaps the most amusing game I have ever played. The graphics aren't great, but the cartoony style fits perfectly (less realistic, more cartoonish) the quad duel system is amazing. I love throwing stuff while slicing people up while either shooting and aiming or duel wielding pistols and machine guns.. The bloody shootouts and gross executions gushing amazing looking cartoon blood are great. The sound of the victims being ripped apart is great. Good guns, good talent evolving, etc etc. the game was short, but extremely replayable. There is also a co-op mode with interesting new characters that will keep me occupied for a while. Did I mention that it is very bloody? People who don't like splatter flicks might want to keep away....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An over all great game. I never played the first Darkness game so this was a mystery to me. it was a risk i was willing to take. When i first bought it it was the morning it came out so i got the Limited Edition Version. when i first played it and saw the graphics were not that great so i just thought they just had a low budget but then i figured out it was based on a comic and assumed they wanted to portray the design similar to a comic book. the game play was awesome. It had a great story and it was a little short but if you are one of those gamers who just wants to get through the story then it is for you. you receive points to upgrade your skills. And since this game has a New Game + you can start over and continue upgrading. Two different endings. May opinion is that it is an awesome game and i don't plan on trading it in or selling it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it was an awesome game i think this was an AMAZING game the action and gore are enough to keep you wanting to play it for the 6 hours of campaign and plus the awesome online multiplayer and would recommend this game i think it earned a 9.0 out of 10

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO! NO! NO! Put it back!!!! Thats right, put it back the way it was in number 1, so many things were missing from this game. I accidently came across number 1 and enjoyed every minute of that game, I waited on pins and needles for number 2 to come out, What a disappointment. first off, it seemed they tried to cram a lot into a little. you don't really get to interact with the mobsters, the demons don't slither anymore, you can't watch the t.v. sets, all you do is go from one place to another fighting., but you don't get to find anything really. It left something to be desired... like " Is that It?" I really was bummed and took it right back traded it for Silent Hill downpour, (another disappointment). Wow, games are becoming as bad as the movies they make.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was hasty but so glad I purchased it The Darkness 2 didn't seem like a good game. Boy, was I wrong. This game is insane. It has the perfect amount of gore, shooting, violence, romance, and story telling in one game. I have never played the darkness so I will be buying that soon. Yeah the game may be a little short, so play it again on the highest difficulty. Their is also coop so I will be playing that soon, and it's a whole other campaign. The Darkness 2 is great and I definitely recommend it!
