Darkness is one of those franchises made for fans by fans. Well, that does not mean an exclusive game address for a particular market category, Darkness 2 is one of those titles that you can love or hate from the early scenes. In the world of gaming, violence equals happiness, Darkness 2 with real prospect of success, although the first version was only for consoles. At this is added the fact that filmmakers cling to keep comic atmosphere, which we gladly recommend the universe presented here is quite faithful to the original story.
The main character, as in the first game, is Jackie Estecado. A son of a mad man with personal problems, leading mafia organization, with a girlfriend and a ventilated socket piece’s proud owner of Darkness. What is Darkness? Well, this being, if we call it, dates back about the genesis, the evil brother and the wife made of light, very angry with God because did not take into account the allergy to anything bright. Over the course of the game, you also will discover much more detail and background stories, which makes them from Darkness 2, immersive game just enough in this regard, the player can collect all kinds of objects that explain better certain aspects omitted in the game before.
Narrative speaking, the game is not exactly what I expected, frankly. Sure, there is certainty that exceed the first title, but the way it is presented and small kinematics insertions that can only create for the player a feeling of belonging. Another notable addition is that the game itself is questioning the mental health of our mobster shaggy, battle scenes are alternated with a sequence from an insane asylum where Jackie faces are observed, which makes you doubt by the wire of the story. Besides, there is an election system more or less moral, that influence how the story will unfold.
What is interesting is Vendetas mode. This can be attempted solo or cooperative and provides you with 4 new characters, remembered by Left 4 Dead, the characters in this way with its own tree of skills and unique game mechanics, players are sometimes quite intrigued by some of the game mechanics. Really interesting was the inclusion of alternative campaigns with them, possibly a separate narrative development, but we can not have it all. However, it is fun and highly recommended.
