Gamerbuzz: "The original Darkness was helmed by Starbreeze, the studio that gave us The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. Once I heard that their new title was going to based off a rather dark comic series, I was intrigued. Unfortunately, it didn’t match my experience of the previous game. Its shooting mechanics were sometimes dull, and the enemy intelligence were nothing, but generally standard. However, The Darkness 2, now in control by a different studio, seems to be shaping up into a great sequel that still stays relevant to the original."
