Okay, confession time: I've never played the first Darkness. I know there's this mob hit man named Jackie, who has (or had) a girlfriend, and an issue with demonic tendrils that won't hesitate to slice somebody up and eat their heart. That's about it. Hence, I was grateful that The Darkness II demo sort of eased me into the new story line. That is, until our fair Jackie starts hallucinating at the most inopportune times to see now dead (?) lady.
