The game The Darkness uses the darkness literally along with its manifestations as weapons to battle with the enemy. The player can call on and control an army that comprises Darklings, which are demonites with hilarious and impish behavior that commit several unspeakable acts. Since the shadows make the Darkness stronger, it will depend on strategy to remain near shadows. The player finds himself underneath New York City and at the kingdom of Darkness. Players can also play as Darklings on multiplayer modes.

Review Summary

The Darkness is the story of Jackie Estacado, a 21-year-old Italian gangster residing in New York. The game opens on his birthday in a fantastic car race that you have never seen before. As per the story, Jackie inherits a wicked and horrific family gift, a set of demonic powers known as The Darkness. These powers can only be used in the darkness. The Darkness powers are introduced progressively as the story unfolds. You will always be equipped with plenty of firearms; The Darkness powers are the ability to summon “Darklings” to your help, “Creeping Dark” power enables you to reach unreachable spots or to tear the hearts from far-away enemies. Other powers include the ability to spear enemies with a long tentacle, move heavy objects and summon deadly black holes designed to evaporate the bad guys Please note that The Darkness is quite violent and shocking. The graphics created for The Darkness are excellent with an incredible creativity and attention to detail. The voice acting is also good and goes well with the monologues of Jackie pondering on his grimy family history. Reviewers find it to be the most ambitious and impressive games that fans of any type of action game will enjoy. But be sure that you are strong enough to handle the violent content. The darkness is a tale of violence, love, and family betrayals that will intrigue and delight gamers.
