The Darkness II

Game Over Online
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s no getting passed it — as much as I enjoyed The Darkness back in 2007, it was a heavily flawed game. For every thing it did right, it had an equally as debilitating flaw. The combat was fun, even if the gunplay was a little unpolished; the level design was varied and often stunning, but the...

  • Conclusion: The Multiplayer will add some replay value but only for a tiny bit. The Darkness II for Xbox 360 is a fast paced game with a short campaign, good soundtrack and memorable characters wrapped up into a decent little package.

The Darkness II (Xbox 360) Review

411mania.com
19 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The Darkness II takes place 2 years after the events of the first Darkness game. Villain protagonist Jackie Estacado wields "The Darkness," a not-so-nice entity that thrives in -- guess where -- the darkness, granting him murderous tendrils, an underling that does his bidding and regeneration powers...

17 March 2012
  • Excerpt: To be honest, the original Darkness sat on my shelf unplayed for more than three years. Amazon.com gave it away for free with the purchase of BioShock back in late 2007 and I snapped it up. Since I was going to buy BioShock anyway, why not get a freebie, right?

The Darkness II (Xbox360)

5 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The thing that most stayed with me after discovering all that The Darkness II had to offer was surprising. It wasn’t the ultra violence (although that’s pretty affecting to begin with). It wasn’t the excellent voice acting (but that effortlessly brings the characters to life).

In the grip of The Darkness II

Quarter to Three
28 February 2012
  • Excerpt: “Corridor” used to be a dirty word in shooters. Time was I thought a linear corridor-based shooter was a lost cause. Thanks Calls of Duty! But then along came the Bioshocks, and games that did such nifty things with the shooting that I didn’t mind the corridors: The Club, Resident Evil 5, Lost...

The Darkness II (X360) - Review

VGChartz
28 February 2012
  • Excerpt: It's fair to say that Jackie Estacado is not a happy man. Consumed by an all-powerful, dominating force known as the Darkness which he has managed to control for now (you'll never guess what happens), he is in constant mourning for his girlfriend Jenny, murdered during the last game.
