Description

Inspired by the popular comic book series produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II is an intense first person shooter that delivers a twisted and gripping narrative of tragedy, modern crime drama, and supernatural horror.
Players will be taken down the brutal and personal path of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction known as The Darkness.
It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado used The Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He’s been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up his supernatural power and now The Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack by a mysterious organization known as the Brotherhood heralds the start of a full-scale war and opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, setting Jackie on a journey to hell and worse.

Absolutely fantastic game by the same developers as Warframe, Digital Extremes, which is now an 11 year old game that's still going strong staying in the top 10 most played games on Steam.

The story, characters and controls are brilliant and truly unique. Graphics aren't lacking, as described by other reviews but if you read interviews with Digital Extremes they decided to use comic book style graphics and it's truly unique.

Give it a blast. It's cheap enough :)

  • Others say graphics but I disagree - it has unique art style!
I can only give this game a rating of 50 because it doesn't play well on OSX. The bottom half of the screen is yellow and there is no way to get rid of it. Apparently this has been an issue for a while so I doubt the devs are going to do anything about it any time soon. You should not have any trouble playing if you bootcamp or use a windows computer. For the few minutes I got to play the game, it looks very interesting
I absolutely love this game. What it lacks in Graphics it completely makes up with Gameplay and Story. The Story is funny the characters are great and you easily slip into the role of the characer you are playing. Unfortunately this game is greatly unknown which is a shame. Everyone should have this little treasure in the steam library.
