Lucas Siegel: "You don't control The Darkness, Jackie. The Darkness controls you. Oh boy is that ever true. When you put The Darkness II into your console, be prepared to lose hours in one sitting, because the game will get its creepy tentacled fingers into you from the first cutscene. What's especially interesting about the way it accomplishes that goal is that it's a true multi-prong attack; I guess it's basically that just as you can quad-wield for four attacks at once as Jackie Estacado, Digital Extremes and 2K Games quad-wielded against gamers with this game."
