IGN - Ultimately, it remains to be seen how deeply the story of the co-op campaign will impact upon the single-player experience. Based on the first two missions, the impact seems to be light, with the treasure hunt for artefacts being little more than a trail of MacGuffins, pushing you between environments, all rendered in the striking graphical noir style adopted by the sequel. Based on a couple of levels, it's difficult to say whether Vendettas will be an integral part of The Darkness II. If missions display more variety, and have at least some bearing upon the central narrative, it could be a interesting take on co-op. One thing at least is for sure: though some might find them tiresomely crude, The Darkness II's unapologetically caricatured co-op cast means you won't have to face the night alone.
