The Many Ways To Kill In The Darkness II

The Darkness II is a grisly video game.

The bad guys nail the lead character's hands to a board. The good guy spikes people in the head with parking meters. One day, the mother of one of the game's creators looked at her son's e-mail inbox and noticed her son would be gathering with his co-workers to conduct a "corpse desecration meeting."

This is why I don't buy video games anymore. I have a huge Steam backlog and developers are gracious enough to offer their products for free. Fortnite is free, Darkness is free, lots of good free games. Thanks Humble

I had a blast with the 1st one. It was perfect. The 2nd not that much, was pretty forgettable tbh and the cell shading, although beautiful, was not my kind of tea

That said, if they make a 3rd one they should make it a bit closer to the original's...vibe and looks.

Its not even made by the same team, I hate when publishers do that.

I still enjoyed 2, it still kept some of the neat things from the first one. Having said that, the first is considerably better, I'd rather the 3rd (somehow) end up being made by machine games which seems to be where a fair amount of the darkness/butchers bay devs ended up.

chris2352432d ago

are we talking switch ports again or why is another lastGen game in the headlines?

ctrlxthroat2432d ago

I'm still hoping for a pc rerelease of the original.

I personally enjoyed this one more than first game (even though I think first one is good too)


The Darkness: A Greek tragedy for the video game age - G4@Syfygames

Matt Ferguson from G4@Syfygames writes "When I think of tragic love stories and star-crossed lovers, I can't recall a more heart-wrenching example than Jackie Estacado and Jenny Romano from The Darkness. What begins as a romantic story between two people from very different worlds ends abruptly in a horrific tragedy, drawing many parallels from the works of Classical Greek tragedians and epic poets."

I agree! That was a great game with well played characters.

Still own a copy of both of them. The Darkness III on PS4/PC/XONE would be awesome.
