  • 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.

Yes, for multiple reasons, The Darkness is a perfect name for this first-person shooter from 2K and Starbreeze, the developer...
  • Pros: Amazing voice work and dialogue set the mood right out of the gate, Stunning graphics, both technically and artistically, Darkness powers are a lot of fun to use again and again, Compelling, well-told story, Can press a button to devour human hearts
  • Cons: Most of the conventional weapons are useless, Enemy reactions and artificial intelligence feel a little too passive at times, Multiplayer feels a little tacked-on
