The Cross and The Controller: The Darkness II Shines a Light on Religious History

Warp Zoned writes:

"On the face of it, The Darkness II, by Digital Extremes, simply doesn’t seem like the kind of game I should be praising for its use of religion. It stars a character, Jackie Estacado, who is, by all rights, a very bad man. He wields a living weapon known as “The Darkness” that hates God and light in order to maintain his control of his New York-based mafia family. The game features other demonic characters as well as brutal and wildly graphic violence." (PC, PS3, The Darkness 2, Xbox 360)
