Bought for a friend

  • Summary: I bought this for a friend and they enjoyed it. It was fun for a little while, but nothing I would personally play on a regularly basis.

Try before you buy

  • Summary: I loved the first Darkness game and was looking forward to this one. Luckily I rented it first. I did enjoy it and I even finished it (it's kind of short) but it was no where near as good as the first one was. First I know it's based on a comic book but it's too comic bookish.

Faster than the first, but not as deep.

  • 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.

Fun game - torn on the rating to give it.

  • 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.

Visceral Multi-Tasking!

Poisoned Blade, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: Ever wish you had another pair of arms? How about a pair of superhuman bloodthirsty demon arms that can rip a door off of a car or throw a metal pipe through a goon and stick him to the wall? That would leave your hands free to dual wield machine guns! With Darkness II, this is what you get.

Darkness 2 Review

Gabriel Monroe, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: The Darkness 2 experienced intense ambiance at it is heart; the dark areas of the New York City style roads created for a cold, lonesome and completely dangerous living while demon-armed mafia man Jackie's ancestry into a hellish World War II apocalypse mid-way via produced what felt such as the...

It's Okay

Brandon Zarzyczny, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: This isn't necessarily a bad game, it definitely has some cool moments, but overall I just found the annoying/frustrating moments to really outweigh the good. I couldn't help but think about how beautiful the graphics were in the first game at the time (I mean I'll never forget that opening scene...

  • Summary: This game was much better then the original I thought the graphics and gameplay were much better. The controls were also much better the only thing you didnt have was four darklings you only had one but you really didint need four being as powerful as you are.

"Gory and Enjoyable"

Alex, Mighty Ape
31 October 2013
  • Summary: If you enjoy the various forms of mutilation and decapitation from the God of War Saga, then you'll enjoy The Darkness II. The campaign lacks length but can definitely provide several hours of insane psychopathic killing sprees with a plot that keeps you thinking.
