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: I haven't payed darkness 1, but this game is really good, despite me hating demons. A really good story, a mix of different things, like romance, action, drama. I think the game turned out to be what it had to be. I don't know if there will be continuation to this game, but I would look forward for it!
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.
Summary: I bought this game because it looked pretty interesting. From what I got from it, you play as the "bad guy", killing people who get in your path. I thought this game was pretty fun for the most part. Each character in the game has a unique style of fighting and it took me a while to choose which one to use.
The Darkness II is not the revelation its predecessor was, but ripping up occultists with your demon arms is a blast anyway.

Summary: The Good -Demonic arms + solid gunplay = fun times -Unusual, creepy story that's more than just cheap shocks -Skill tree gives the action some diversity -Excellent voice acting and sound effects. The Bad -Incredibly short campaign -Linear levels and second-rate AI make for predictable encounters - Run-of-the-mill co-op missions lack challenge
Summary: The main character of the darkness 2 is a major downer. However, the actual game is filled with a colorful cast that manages to make up for the main character, provided you don't spend too much time trying to get to know them. Several sequences were even laugh out loud funny. The game play is gun play with darkness powers; if it looks like your kind of thing, you'll probably love it. But, if you don't like blood and gore, this isn't a game for you.
