PlaystationMAG - Yeah, I probably shouldn’t be enjoying this so much. There’s a massive eel-like demon arm snaking over my left shoulder, with a struggling man hanging from it. Over my right shoulder, another tentacle writhes and snaps while I hold R1 to control it and try to decide whether I’m going to slice him from head to toe, or just gut him. I may have gone wrong.
In the end I flick the stick from right to left, whipping the demon arm across the screen and cutting the guy in half. I’ve been doing this for half an hour – grabbing, slashing, wreaking havoc and generally feeling like a rampaging monster in a horror movie. Which, in a way, I am. Welcome to The Darkness II.
