The Darkness II
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...
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.
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....
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.
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
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.
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!
Exceeded My Expectations.
Fantastic Game. After gaining all the achievements in the first game, I didn't see the second one living up to much. I was wrong. This is a great game, despite the short length. Compelling storyline, much improved graphics, and with the concept that kept the franchise moving. Great for anyone interested in ripping mobbers apart with demon arms, and easy achievements.
good story.....for 3 and a half hours of gameplay
Slightly better than the first one.It has a good story line with a good plot and twist.Yet,weather you play it on easy or hard.You can beat it in about three and a half hours.If they make another one the need to add more of a challange and more missions and levels.Overall it's pretty much " playing " a movie.
A Quick Buck for 2k
Basically, I paid $60 to push buttons for 4-6 hours. Yes, that is how long it takes to beat the game, twice. On hour-7 of replay, I got all the character perks you can get, and most of all the relics, or "hidden items." The game is, fantastic, I love it, and no-doubt you will enjoy it. But I have been impaled, realizing I actually spent $60 on this game, and I am upset. This game is worth $20 - $30 tops -- it is extremely short, and has little replay value (I could go on about that). I would highly recommend RENTING this game if you want to play it and you'll see what I mean.
