This week also saw the release of The Darkness II on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC and we are now able to propose a few videos of what happens after the end of the game's demo. For the same price, you are getting three videos of the 360 version and one of the PC version. You should be aware that the latter is presented in 1080p and 60 fps but that its content may also shock the most prude among you.
After a first episode that had its flaws but which conveyed a great atmosphere, fans were a bit concerned about The Darkness II. There are probably several reasons for that: Starbreeze no longer was in charge of developing the game, the graphics had taken the cel shaded path and, last but not least, it seemed to be even more action oriented than before.
In the end, I think the art style works pretty well here, but that's probably a matter of taste. As for gameplay, it has been improved a lot since the first installment, the controls being more responsive and less awkward. You will also see in the videos below that Digital Extremes did not forget to add more peaceful sequences during which you can take your time to chat with your friends.
The game's atmosphere is still one of the game's strengths and killing bad guys is a lot of fun, with the mix of shooting and decapitating you'd come to expect from Jackie Estecado. There is however something quite disappointing with The Darkness II. The main problem is that it probably won't take you more than 5 to 6 hours to complete the main story mode, which is rather short even in today's standards.
on top of that it Chrome won't support the game launcher soon? (27 minutes ago)
cte signups for Hardline- I like how you need Premium to give feedback on testing their game for them. Goddamn these generations suck dick sometimes (32 minutes ago)
I'm happy that the President of the football asociacion here in Venezuela got caught on this. I hate that guy and he is one of the reason Football haven't progress here. (47 minutes ago)
@droezelke: That is why he is called Teflon Blatter. He always gets away with it. Still hoping that somehow he gets affect by it. At least UEFA is asking to postpone the FIFA elections. (48 minutes ago)
@rayy: Blatter is no suspect. He will be re-elected. That being said: he's as guilty as can be. Everyone knows it. (52 minutes ago)
at least something's being done about it finally. It's pretty public knowledge Fifa is fucked up (1 Hour ago)
@digi_matrix: I'm loving all this FIFA crisis at the moment. I hope Blatter goes down with it. (1 Hour ago)
