The Darkness II – Review


Comic books and violence, two things that always go hand in hand, much like Jackie and the Darkness. But is this game worth having your body invaded by a supernatural being? Or is it more just like administering a suppository?The first Darkness game,...

The Darkness


When New York-based mafia assassin Jackie Estacado is double crossed and blown up during a contract hit on the eve of his 21st birthday, he suddenly comes into a demonic inheritance when the evil Darkness possesses his body and leads Jackie on a trail...

There's little doubt that The Darkness deserves its place amongst the upper tier of current next-gen offerings, and that right is perhaps never more apparent than when marvelling at the game's character animation (be it through Jackie or just a...

The Darkness II review [Xbox 360/PS3/PC]


Every second of every day, for the last two fuckin' years, I kept myself in check. Gritted my teeth and kept it buried. Now it's back, and I can feel what it's doing to me…” Those are the words Jackie tells me as he sits on an exquisite chair, the...

The Darkness II Review


Since the release of The Darkness in 2007, Jackie Estacado and his comic book world have seen some significant alterations. Digital Extremes have taken over development duties from Starbreeze Studios, a move that paves the way for something a little...

The Darkness


A descent into The Darkness can resemble the well-known Five Steps of Denial to Acceptance … in reverse. All of the symptoms and stages composed of anger and resentment, bargaining, and depression begin a spine-locking backslide, starting with the...

The Darkness baptizes you in its unholy immersive waters, lingering in your memory well after you've shut down the console -- and well after you've shut off the lights. Its psychological horror, plus its polished performances, minus any mind-numbing...

The Darkness


Destructoid reviews games. The Darkness is a game. So we reviewed it. And, all things considered, it probably wouldn't kill you to read it. Within this hallowed post, you'll find the opin...

The Darkness


Thankfully, one thing Starbreeze took advice on after the Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay was to add a multiplayer feature. The multiplayer mode offers the typical combination of deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture-the-flag modes,...

The Darkness (PAL)


Excellent framerate ; Superb Graphics ; Great Gameplay ; Decent Story

Not Scary ; Dull multiplayer

So overall I loved The Darkness, not just is it superb graphically it also has an excellent story and a driving narrative throughout. When I first started to play it I felt that I was playing something fresh for the first time in months, it felt...
