Liked the game, brilliant use of atmosphere and the story was very good really drew you in but I wasn't to keen on the WW1 levels they were pants!!! Am hopeful for the sequel just hope that if starbreeze isn't doing it whoever does makes a good game as the license deserves it.

I loved the gunplay. There is nothing quite as satisfying as sneaking up on a baddy in the dark and getting one of those awesome execution moves off. The first time I did it I was in shock. "Did I just stick my gun in some dudes mouth and pull the trigger?... I think I love this game."

I also love how it was a super-"hero" game where you actually get to become a really badass super powered person by the end of the game. In most games the baddies scale their power with you, so you never feel overpowered. In The Darkness the baddies are always just human, where as you become an invincible death machine by the end of the game.

I didn't mind the WWI levels so much. They were a little bland here and there, but they had some cool scenery. I love the skeletons with no arms or legs who sort of razz you as you come near them. They reminded me of the Deadites from Army of Darkness.

The Darkness 2 announced by 2K Games
Sequel confirmed by publisher for autumn release

The Darkness 2 will be released on Xbox 360, PC and PS3 in the autumn, 2K Games has announced.

A sequel to the 2007 shooter has been rumoured for years, but as previously rumoured the follow-up will be developed by Digital Extremes and not original developer Starbreeze.

Players retake the role of Jackie Estacado on what 2K terms a "brutal and personal path". Jackie again wields the destructive power of The Darkness.

2K promises that The Darkness II "breaks out of the sea of conventional first-person shooters with its fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay". This allows players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with their Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. Again, just like the four-year-old original.

2K says that the game will be "layered with the use of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and engulfed in stylistic violence that is visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique that stays true to its comic book origins".

Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K commented: "The Darkness II is a well of dark and imaginative violence, and it's a stylized and beautiful nightmare. It continues the 2K Games tradition of delivering quality, innovative games that are filled to the brim with atmosphere and deep storytelling.

"The game takes a unique stance on fighting in the dark versus light. Combined with the arsenal of weapons at Jackie's disposal and the gruesome attacks of the supernatural Demon Arms and Darkness powers, we're proud to announce another title that delivers on our core values of creating games for gamers."

Will it be any good without Starbreeze though?

great news but i really hope that digital extremes do a good job with it. It will be unforgivable if they mess it up, but if they try and stick closely to the originals formula with a few new twists thrown in it should be fine, i hope!

Yep, also ditch the crappy unnecessary multiplayer while they're at it and they'll be onto a winner.

They did BioShock 2 which was good ... but not as good as the first.   :-\

They also added MP to a game that didn't need it so hopefully they'll remove the MP this time round.   :)

I wonder how much is the developer's choice to include MP vs. the publisher wanting a shiny bulletpoint on the back of the box.

BTW - I'm not a connoisseur of MP, but I didn't think that The Darkness or Bioshock 2's MP were bad at all, I guess it depends on how serious you take the MP, but both those felt like pretty chaotic fun, the times I've played them.

My only concern with MP is if it takes away from the Single Player, which in the case of Bioshock 2, it felt like it did, eventhough the MP wasn't developed in-house.

I preferred Bioshock MP to the SP.
