Hello everyone sorry for the delay today I am doing my next game reviews on the two winners of the polls and this game has a pretty dark and gory which is awesome. So I will advise ahead of time that this game is rated M for Mature and its actually pretty gory while very well detailed about most of its fatalities well anyway onto the review here it is " The Darkness II"
The darkness II is about the main character Jackie Estacado has become the don of the Franchetti Crime Family. While certain people know he wields a evil power called "The Darkness" a very evil and vile force that has given Jackie untold power but lately Jackie has been able to suppress the darkness thats to one of his family members named " Johnny Powell " but after awhile the darkness has made a uneasy feeling around Johnny thus made him mentally unstable and he fled from the family. ( Warning there are spoilers ahead if you haven't really played the first Darkness so I am going to hint what happened from the last game in small details)
Jackie is still suffering from a loved one he lost which his power the darkness has prevented him from saving that person from certain death. Now after a couple of years after the incident Jackie has somewhat forgotten about the darkness and living his life as usual until one night going to his family restaurant and meeting some very beautiful women a sudden mob gang attack and as the car crashes right through the window setting the whole place in flames and gun fire while Jackie's leg is all mangled and beyond messed up.
After being pulled away by one of his family members saving his life, a sudden mysterious figure shows up and tells his men to continue attacking the building while all of this was going on the darkness was calling for Jackie to use its power and embrace the dark power. Which Jackie refuses to use it soon afterwards Jackie was caught in a huge explosion and slowly bleeding out as he crawls towards the dark figure Jackie accepts the darkness to destroy those that hurt his family as it stabs through the enemies in the alleyway threw the stomach and out of another guys chest. The Darkness heals Jackie's leg with its regenerative powers now he sets out to find out what this guy wants and does he know what the darkness is? and is there a way to control the Darkness along the way.
Now the Game play of the Darkness II is something that is very interesting what I call it is " Quad Control " you can fight most people in this game with either just your tentacles or just guns or both. This game allows you to be as destructive as you can to destroy your enemies and have the feeling like you are somewhat god like ( Or Demon like in this case)
Here is an example of the Game play and how it works in mostly your favor
The game is actually pretty good and wish there was another Darkness coming out to complete the cliffhanger they showed us at the end of the game. Maybe someday they will make a Darkness 3 soonish but for now I really liked the Darkness video game series and I have read the comic book as a fan I would give it a 9 but to be professional I give the Darkness II a ......... 8.9 for a gory game but with its few glitches it almost got a 9 but still a must buy for those that love the darkness comics or darkness in general.
