"The thing that most stayed with me after discovering all that The Darkness II had to offer was surprising. It wasn’t the ultra violence (although that’s pretty affecting to begin with). It wasn’t the excellent voice acting (but that effortlessly brings the characters to life). It wasn’t the fully featured co-operative mode (which is incredibly deep) nor was it the well thought-out ability upgrade system (which is very smart)."
