The Darkness II Review (PC/OnLive)

gamingshogun.com
9 December 2012
  • Excerpt: So a while back I asked to review a game for OnLive and they generously said “sure, have a couple” so I picked a second game called The Darkness II simply because I loved the trailer with a twitchy guy standing in the dark babbling about the game.

  • Excerpt: For those who aren't in the know, there were lots more comics publishers than just the big two, and a few, like Image comics, made several interesting and gritty titles, of which “The Darkness” was just one.

The Darkness 2

ActionTrip
12 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Delivering another action game to the market is a safe bet for most developers and publishers. After all, the genre has been tested and tried so many times and the public still revels in it. However, the real challenge is not making a mere on-the-rails type of shooter with a clich'd story.
  • Pros: Solid gamepaly ideas in this one, cool art, cool execution moves, interesting premise;
  • Cons: Single-player's too short, the multiplayer is not compelling enough to make you stay for long, we do miss the open-ended approach from the original game.

Darkness 2, The

29 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I've always had this theory. In the beginning of every year, there's that strange lull until we get new quality games, and perhaps it's a bit unfair, but those games set the tone for what the rest of the year will be like. Terrible games are released first?

The Darkness II Review (Windows PC)

Gamers Daily News
13 February 2012
  • Summary: The Darkness II is a good first-person shooter but for diversity of gameplay it is lacking. However, the quad-wielding system is interesting enough to run through the whole game and the Hit List missions and co-op campaign give some small reason to return.

The Darkness 2 review

PCGamer Online
7 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Four arms: it was so obvious. It must be galling for other shooter developers. They’ve spent decades since Doom trying to work out ways to innovate on the FPS model, to make shooting people feel fresh and interesting again.
