The Darkness 2 is a game that features really fun and satisfying gameplay as well as a great story and excellent visuals and sounds but ends up being really short.
Gameplay - This game has your basic FPS elements like dual wielding and a number of guns to pick from but what sets it apart, obviously, is the Darkness powers. With the Darkness tentacles you can grab people and perform some brutal executions, you can grab objects to shield you or to throw at your enemies. Other Darkness powers you gain from leveling up are like a body armor, a mini black hole, a swarm of insects, and more executions that give you health or ammo.
Story - The story is fantastic creating a lot of tension and emotions as you play.
Visuals and Sounds - The colorful cel-shaded graphics makes this game look more like the comic books of which this was based off of. The sounds are amazing as well. You can hear the bodies being ripped apart by your tentacles. The voice work is also well done especially Mike Patton as the Darkness.
Length - The campaign is sadly short even for an FPS.
Story - Although the storyline is great, the ending is not so much well done as it was very predictable and it also left on a really bad cliff hanger.
Multiplayer - I felt the cooperative multiplayer was unnecessary to the game as they could've spent more time making the single player longer instead of spending time on this multiplayer. It's just a 4 player co-op multiplayer in which you shoot some enemies and do an objective.
