Let me start this off by saying that The Darkness II is a gruesomely dark game that doesn’t hold anything back. I totally wasn’t ready for it, but by the end it just worked. We were given a demo by Tom Dalt of Digital Extremes, the developer of The Darkness II. He started the demo off by giving us a bit of background from what happened between the events of the first and second games. The Darkness II picks up two years after the events of the first game when Jackie Estacado, the protagonist from the first game, is attacked by a group of strange men.
