Summary: This review will not go into all the details of what the game is about as others have done that well enough. I will just give my perspective. I got this game for myself after playing the demo. I really liked the different dimension that the demon arms gave to the gameplay and the concept of the darkness and Jackie's battle against it. I am not a big gamer and will not win any online multi-player contests, but I am not a complete newbie either.
Summary: The world feels 2d. And no I'm not referring to the spotty cell shading. It's a lot of fun though. Right up until the unsatisfying finale. If you liked the first one pick this one up, just don't expect a worthy successor to Starbreeze's spectacular (albeit unfinished) first outing.
Summary: the first darkness is a cool dark gothic cult game the sequel is a shadow of its former glory its not so much the story thats the problem i knew he wouldnt be jackie from the block anymore but its the look of it instead of a game version of a film noir you have a cartoon splatterhouse a travesty really its like its been remade by baz luhrmann the only thing that saves it is of course the most fun killing system of any game although the stealth has gone!
