Playing a demon never felt so right! This game adds a new element to evil and easily fills the darkness in us all.
Pros: slithering Serpents , stakes through chest, ripping out hearts, black holes that even suck in the light! Very good storyline, decent side quest, and an overall great appetizer leading to hopefully a revolutionary sequel.
Cons: Minions can be very dumb, but humerous if you ever get to see them execute someone. Side quest need more depth. The Black Hole, although the coolest power, can be a bit too powerful. Also, game is way too short.
Overall, no game is perfect. However, this game is a definite must play.
When i first heard of The Darkness, i thought it was just another mediocre game that is part of an already poor PS3 game set list. However, i was wrong, very wrong. The only reason i bought the game was because i like horror and the reviews did seem to praise this game. Anyways, i bought the game and let me tell you, i loved it! Lets start with presentation. The presentation is top notch. Although, the concept of the story is not very deep, it was told very well and it really grabs your attention. The graphics need work, but they are not bad either. The character models are great, especially Jackie and his lover. However, everything needs work. Gameplay is what makes this game start about. The game is not intended for you to use guns as other FPS do. You are intended to use your darkness powers. These powers are very fun to use, but when you get your final power, Black hole, there will be no use for the other three. It gets quite annoying you have to destroy the lights after lights, but still, it adds to the uniqueness to the game since the dark makes you stronger. This game is a must own for any horror fan. The story is told and presented well and the gameplay is unique and fun. Some aspects needs work, but it doesn't effect the game at all.

This game is one of the best fps to come out in a long time. The storyline is amazing, and the darkness powers add so much fun to this game. The downside is that you can beat the story mode in about a day or two. Based on just the single player mode, I would say rent it. It is a good game, but there really isn't much to do after you beat it.
