The Darkness II

8.0 reviews

The Darkness II breaks out of the sea of conventional first-person shooters with its fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with their Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with the use of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and engulfed in stylistic violence that is visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique that stays true to its comic book origins.

Going into The Darkness II, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, especially considering the change of developers and the fact that the last game was released nearly 4 years ago. I’m glad to say that Digital Extremes has done a really nice job modernizing the series and following up where Starbreeze left off. So if you’re looking for something a little different from your typical modern combat or science fiction-themed first person shooters, The Darkness II is a great alternative.

The fact that The Darkness II is a sequel to a game with its roots entrenched in a fairly-twisted comic-book canon is irrelevant. There are no barriers to entry here, no homework to catch up with, just a fantastically pieced together tale coupled with a refreshingly creative take on the ever-staling FPS formula. It handles well, looks great, and sounds even better; The Darkness II is 2012′s first home console must-have and marks a promising start to the year for 2K and its upcoming onslaught of beautifully-crafted titles.

The more imaginatively you slaughter, the more you’re rewarded. A bit like primary-school art lessons, but with less finger-painting and more grown men screaming for their lives. Then the darkling turns up, and adds a new paintbrush to your art set. This (inexplicably) cockney critter works with you to distract enemies while you go to work on them, guides you through to the next area – and later in the game you can even control him and perform his trademark eye-gouging first-hand. The loveable scamp.
