The Darkness II Review
Author: Jeff McAllister
When the original The Darkness from Starbreeze Studios came out in 2007, the comic book inspired title appeared out of nowhere to surprise gamers with its over the top violence and impressive visuals. The mafia hit man, Jackie Estacado, and the supernatural powers that provide him the sentient powers of The Darkness, made for a title with a compelling story and features that were unique for an FPS. Skip ahead a few years later, toss in a new developer and a new graphical style and the sequel not only follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, but also improves on an already remarkable game in just about every way.
