Awkward

Tyler, Amazon

  • 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.

Unimaginative & Underwhelming

Dismal Angel "Ash", amazon.co.uk
30 November 2012
  • 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: Two years on from the events of 'The Darkness', mob hitman Jackie Estacado is now the boss of a mafia family. Haunted by the memory of his dead girlfriend, he has kept the demonic power he inherited on a tight leash. But when a shady cult come after his organisation, he unleashes this terrible power - of which he is merely a vessel - to exact vengeance, a rampage taking him once again into the depths of the New York underworld.

Disappointing

Have A Nice Day "Things Will Never Be The Same", amazon.co.uk
20 February 2012
  • 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.

  • Summary: Ich weiß nicht was ich dazu schreiben soll. Habe mir ein Gameplay angesehen und war von der Grafik fasziniert, jedoch war der Spielverlauf mir zu stressig und man hat kaum "Bewegungsfreiheit". Das Game hat etwas trashiges, was mir gefällt, aber es war nicht wirklich mein Ding. Vielleicht irgendwann noch mal neu antesten.

Gute Action in einer schlecht verpackten Story

Skulldragon, Amazon
21 September 2012
  • Summary: Nach dem genialen Vorgänger hatte ich natürlich große Erwartungen an den Nachfolger, denen das Spiel leider nicht ansatzweise gerecht werden konnte. Die Grafik: Diesmal hat man sich für den Cel-Shading-Look entschieden, sodass es näher an die Comicvorlage herankommt. Für mich ist der einzige positive Aspekt dabei nur, dass die Entwickler eine größere Auswahl an der Gestaltung der Splatter-Effekte hatten, die wirklich brutal und gut aussehen.

14/20

Mastroleop, Amazon

  • 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...
