Summary: Good game, overall. Never read the comics, but the gameplay is quite enjoyable, the art direction is good, but the story is unmitigated pain and suffering for your character and everyone else in the game. Also, extremely short, I finished it in about 7 hours, about half the length of an average AAA title.
Summary: The story, the gunplay, the tentacle darkness, the blood, the gore... all plays into Darkness II. The story is so good, it entails the character (it looks like anyway) from the last game, Jackie, dealing with the Darkness and pursuing some bad dudes through the whole game while trying to keep his mafia group together. Jackie also deals with a lot of hallucinations... and you find out why in the game, but I think if you've played Darkness you probably know why.
Summary: I didn't expect too much from this series other than a shoot 'em up with super powers. In that aspect it was passable, lots of fun, a bit of too much fluff thrown in with the story line, and decent gun play. The biggest problem I have is that it's a bit short (I clocked 10 hours on hardest difficulty and decent amount of exploring) and that the super powers doesn't feel very satisfying.
Was not satisfied with this product. It was not compatible with a newer pc.

Summary: I bought this game for my son who played it many years ago when he was a child. He loved getting the old school game but when he tried to install it on his laptop it would not install. I did not realize it will not play on a newer system so now he cannot play it. He does not want me to re sell it but wants to keep it and someday get an old system to use it on.
Summary: I probably didn't make it much past issue #3 of The Darkness comics when it first came out. I didn't care for the potty humour and the violence and gore and I didn't care for womanizing Jackie. Darklings still fart and pee on corpses that the Darkness' demon arms have ripped apart in creative ways, but the major difference between comic Jackie Estacado and video game Jackie Estacado is that he's not a shallow womanizing jerk.
