The lights are on
Reiner and I love shooters and comic books in equal measure, so an FPS based off Top Cow's The Darkness seems right up our alley. Find out how this second game fares in our 25-plus minute look at The Darkness II.
Be prepared for some gross-out kills, colorful bloodshed, and a lot of repetition in the video along with a few surprises. Once you're done watching, check out our many previous Reiner and Phil videos on our hub page.
This is great! I was wondering when the new Reiner Phil came out and the Darkness II seems like an entertaining choice.
mike patton is awesome
All of the enemies in the beginning look exactly the same; either Italian plumbers or convicts. I will now pass on this game.
i still want to play this. I enjoy the art style
Target had the overalls/jumpsuit sale the same time they had their Missoni sale.
On another note, the art style of this game reminds me of XIII. That game wasn't all that bad and I'd like to see them do a sequel considering how the game ended.
great episode fellas
I only played the demo... I thought it was pretty cool.
All those claiming to be a fan of the comic or original game and not wanting to check out the sequel: Check it out.
For a long time Top Cow reader just someone who appreciates story and artistic execution, this game is amazing. Definitely one of the better and more original games to come out in a while. Frankly, the demo doesn't give you enough of a taste to really get into the meat of the game.
i want to see a "Never Dead" Reiner & Phil, i think their reactions to a reportedly awful game would be hilarious.
Glad to see this didn't spoil anything (as long as you've played the demo). I love these looks at games.
Tried the demo and I found this game very interesting. Thanks for the gameplay video guys.
After watching the video, I kinda want to check out the first Darkness. I played the demo and thought it was VERY underwhelming, but really liked the demo for the second.
This game looks pretty good. Repetitious, but otherwise solid. I wish Digital Extremes had gotten rid of shooting out the lights, though; that got annoying really quickly in the first game.
The Darkness was kind of boring. And this game appears to be too linear for my tastes. Another bargain bin buy.
