Never played the first Darkness game. But i dont think i really needed to. Nor do you if you plan on renting this game, which is definitley worth playing. The fact that your character has 2 extra arms is pretty awesome. Other than the swarm of flies and black holes you really dont have too much special abilities considering this isnt that long of a game. But using these are awesome when your fighting. Avoiding the light can be difficult since it seems to pop out everywhere. I really enjoyed playing this game and i cant wait for the 3rd installment. Ooops! Hope i didnt ruin it for anybody.
For all of those FPS buffs who are tired of the traditional military FPS's this is a fresh new experience. You are in control of a mobster named Jackie who is possessed, a term I use loosely, by this thing called the darkness. It introduces quad-wielding mechanics that have never been quite done before. You also get a British monkey that gives you ammo ever now and then and who will attack enemies and bosses and you can throw him at other NPC's and one level you can control him to turn off the power. If you're a true FPS fan you'll invest 20$-30$ into this game series because Darkness 1 is pretty good to.
