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.

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

8 February 2012
  • Excerpt: If I was allowed, I’d be swearing right now. ’ I’d proclaim in the type of angry, grown up voice which usually wears a leather jacket and isn’t really as adult as it pretends to be. ‘ That’s what I’d be saying if I was The Darkness 2, sequel to the cult hit-and-miss comic book shooter of 2007.

The Darkness II (PC) Review

zConnection International
5 March 2012
  • Conclusion: As disappointing as it sounds that The Darkness II is missing many of the original’s features (including the full-length movies that were playable on nearby televisions), the core campaign is actually a richer experience for it.

Review: "The Darkness II" (PS3)

gamingxp.com
2 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Mafioso Jackie Estacado kehrt nach rund fünf Jahren wieder zurück auf den Bildschirm bzw. Fernseher. Hat sich das Warten auf das Comeback des Italo-Amerikaners Jackie gelohnt? Die Antwort finden Sie in unserem Review.
  • Pros: Verbesserte Steuerung, Fähigkeitssystem, Blutrache-Modus, Kultfigur Jackie ist zurück, Düsteres Setting, Brutale Inszenierung, Cooler Comic-Look, Relikte als Sammelobjekte, Darkling als unterhaltsamer Begleiter & Helfer
  • Cons: Bosskämpfe etwas enttäuschend, Ende lässt Fragen offen, Kleine Schwächen bei der Optik, Gegner KI mit Luft nach oben

Memberrecensie: The Darkness II

InsideGamer
13 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Darkness II is een erg leuke game om te spelen. Ik heb me goed vermaakt in de game. Het heeft me ook erg meegesleept in het verhaal. Wat jammer is, is dat de game maar vijf tot zes uur duurt om hem uit te spelen.
  • Pros: Veel brute actie, New game, De Singleplayer, maar dan met anderen online en offline speelbaar in Vendettas, Mooie cartoonachtige sfeer, Experience systeem, Goede voice-acting, Goed verhaal, Veel vette eindbazen
  • Cons: Twee lullige endings, Einde van de game in de onderwereld voelt gehaast aan, Darkling missies zijn erg eentonig, Singleplayer is aan de korte kant, Vendettas en New game + voelen als slappe pogingen om de game uit te rekken, Vendettas is als Multiplayer van de game aan de erg korte kant

The Darkness II

PC GURU
23 May 2012
  • Excerpt: A múlt hónapban már közöltünk egy hosszabb írást a The Darkness II egy korai verziójában szerzett tapasztalatainkról, azóta viszont megkaparintottuk a végleges változatot is, és tesztünkből most kiderül, hogy a játék beváltotta-e a hozzá fűzött reményeinket.
  • Pros: Hihetetlenül élvezetes akció, démoni képességek, egyedi látvány, valóban élvezhető kooperatív mód, nagy szavatosság.
  • Cons: Az ellenfelek helyenként nem jelentenek nagy kihívást és a játék vége kicsit össze van csapva.
