The Darkness 2, is a Canadian developed first-person shooter psychological horror game by Digital Extremes and published by 2K Games
In the Darkness 2 Jackie Estacado - the players character, has taken over one of New Yorks biggest Gang/Mob. still suffering from regret over his girlfriends death, Jackie is trying to live a normal life. having learned how to control and repress The Darkness. but he is forced to unleash The Darkness after a strange cult attacks him and his friends.
To be honest,The Darkness 2 is petty cliche, Guy loves girl, girl gets killed, guy has flash backs of said dead gril, on and on, you get the point. the levels aren't breathtaking, or special. no, in fact most of it is a hallway shooter and it really never breaks that form. despite all this the game is still fun. and the reason is of The Darkness. you get to use this special power and its pretty fun to take out enemy with it.
but you will soon tire of seeing the same kill moves over and over and over. sure, the first time or so its pretty cool to watch, but by the 30th or 40th time of seen the same kill moves you'll get bored. still, later on in the Darkness 2, the story does get better, and it will sometimes have you wondering what is real and what is not.
in the end The Darkness 2 is nothing special, but it is fun the first few times you play it. even the gameplay suffers though. as on normal the game is only four hours, The Darkness 2 has a multiplayer mode, however its boring and dull. the Darkness is worth 15$ max and you will have some fun with it. but once you get done with the story you will probably never play it again.
