Now the new The Darkness II Brothel preview has arrived and I got to try out the game’s talent system for the first time. For those who don’t know, The Darkness II is unique for its comic/cel-shaded look, over-the-top violence, and the ability to quad-wield. The game definitely has a lot going for it. The talent system is just another additional feature that makes The Darkness II such a rewarding experience."
