Summary: Did not live up to the excitement or thrill of the original. I think I got the game for like $15 and it was worth that much but if you cannot find a good deal on it do not buy it since there is only about 8 hours of play time. If that.
Summary: It's been a good while since I've played any game I could call truly unimaginative, but I have to say, this one just fits the bill. From the moment I installed the game to the moment the credits came up (3hrs and 13 mins to be precise) I was utterly underwhelmed by the complete failure of storytelling, the utter lack of features and the void of any real challenge and interesting gameplay whatsoever. The storyline follows two years after the events of the first game.
Pulling out all the stops doesn't necessarily make a great series greater

Summary: Like many fans of the 1st game, I couldn't wait to slip the CD into my PS3 and get down to a weekend of Darkness 2. It was a short weekend. The graphics of this game compared to the first are more amateur than professional. The outline of Jackie's hand and other objects you get a sense of a thick black outline line that is certainly notable. In the first game when you had access to the darkness you had a variety of powers to call upon.
Excerpt: "...personal, his girlfriend died in the last game, that was pretty personal. This time Freddy Krueger/Adolph Hitler wants to steal your imaginary friend that you’re actually not that fond of. So what’s the big deal right? Well it’s the sequel to an awesome 2007 videogame from the land of the Swedes now developed by digital extremes, who are Canadian. First off I am completely enamoured by the first game, it was cool, gritty, intense, realistic (as realistic ...
Pros: Cool comic book style, lots of gore and guns, overall good action .
Cons: Weak story, not as stylized, too short, not as dark and gritty as the last game, too cartoony .
Summary: Après le premier "superbe" épisode de Starbreeze, j'attendais ce deuxième épisode avec impatience, malgré le changement de Studio. Désillusion totale, attention, le jeu est correct, voir Bon, mais c'est tout! Graphiquement le premier est plus beau et pourtant j'aime assez le cel-shadding, mas pas ici; le jeu est très cour 5-6h pour ma part (alors que le 1, j'avais mis 15h), le jeu est hyper bourrin, seul la maniabilité et le scénario sont intéressants, mais ce dernier...
