  • Excerpt: I wish I could say that The Darkness bears one or two issues. That would simplify reviewing it, because then all of my points would flow from one or two ideas rather than form a list of arbitrary grievances.

21 October 2007
  • Conclusion: The Darkness is a mature game that completely lives up to its M-rating. Playing this game a second time definitely made me desire a sequel to visit Jackie’s dark world again. As of now there is no other game on the PS3 that is similar to this, so if you own Sony’s big black box it is highly...
