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.
@Moonwalker: did you get the new czarface album? Btw if you want any heads up on old school hip hop then just ask, been into this music since '84 :P (7 Hours ago)
Ofcourse now gangsta has become commercial and big business once the record business noticed there was money to be made. (7 Hours ago)
Hip hop started out from getting away from violence. Gangsta embraced the violent culture. (7 Hours ago)
They started out seperate from each other on east and west side of the US. Gangsta rap started from gangs and criminals. Hence the name. (7 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I'm not dissing on gangsta rap as an art form. But dr Dre, Ice T, ... were featured in the little doc. And they were bragging about it. Hip Hop is not related to gangsta. (7 Hours ago)
