The Darkness 2 scored 8.1 in PSM3.

"Although the Darkness II is a far-from perfect shooter, it does tell a compelling story that compares favourably to genre greats such as Bioshock, Half-life 2 and Resistance 3."

"No, it doesn't tell a delicate emotional tale the way the original does, but the ending will still leave your head spinning, even as the horrific executions have your stomach churning."

I'd be interested to read the rest of the review. That is pretty high praise to be comparing it to the stories of Half Life 2 and BioShock.

Thanks for posting.

Good news, I just hope the game isn't too short.

Also, kind of off-topic, but putting Resistance 3 next to Bioshock and Half Life 2 is crazy.

8.1 for a first review is kind of a let down. 

 

i wonder what their biggest problems with the game were.

For comparison sake, they gave Kingdoms of Amalur a 7.8 in the same issue, didn't they?

its not a bad score, its just relatively low for a first review.

 

for comparison the first review for the original darkness was a 9 IIRC.

The review says that it took 6 hours to complete the story on normal difficulty. They didn't say how long the co-op campaign was though. If you guys have any questions/concerns, then ask away and i'll see if I can find the answer in the review.

Thanks for the response.

 

Six hours is even shorter than I hoped, guess I'll wait for a price drop then.
