The Darkness 2 on 360

The Darkness 2 Screen Shots

The Darkness 2 is a Shooting game available on the 360. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.

The Darkness 2 is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.

The Darkness 2 can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.


The Darkness 2

The Darkness 2 continues the story of Jackie Estacado, a possessed member of the New York mob. It again works the same odd combination of mafia family wars and Satanism to create some bizarre, and strangely engaging, characters and scenarios.

The original Darkness was an unusual game. It told the tale of betrayed Mafia hitman Jackie Estacado as he confronted the man who set him up and killed his innocent girlfriend -- who also happened to be his uncle. Possessed on his 21st birthday by a demon that moves between the men of his family Jackie gained the power necessary for his revenge, while at the same time damning himself to a life of control by the evil Darkness (ed: just your cheery everyday tale then).
