ClickOnline.com - The Darkness II Review

ClickOnline.com Writes: "Rather than changing their approach in order to appeal to a more mass market group of players, Digital Extremes has instead decided to continue from where they left off, and The Darkness II is every bit as atmospheric and intense as the original – only this time they’ve really cranked it up a notch."

Really excited for this game. 5-6 hour campaign is a tad disappointing, but the unique/fresh elements of this game (art style, quad wielding, darkness powers) is enough to make up for it in my opinion.

5 to 6 hour is worth a rent in my opinion. Less it had amazing online or a lower retail price.

6 hour campaign is really putting me off tbh. The first Darkness was fairly lengthy. I've gone from day one to uncertain.

But if you think about it, the first game was only long because of the extensive (and tedious) backtracking. Even then, it felt like it was only 6 hours sans (or maybe even plus) side missions because of how empty the levels were and there were so few enemies to kill.

Yeah, to many other games commin in feb to waste 65 bucks on a 5 or 6 hour game. Rent it for 5 bucks, beat it in an afternoon. You'll thank urself later.

Man this sounds fantastic. I've been waiting for that game for more than 4 years. The first one is still one of the best games I've ever played. Sure it wasn't perfect gameplay-wise but the deep atmosphere is still one of a kind. The 6 hour campaign doesn't bother me in any way. Remember Heavenly Sword and it's 5 hour campaign? It was still worth 60€ for me more than some long games.
