The Darkness II

The Darkness II breaks out of the sea of conventional first-person shooters with its fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with their Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. Score:


Our Verdict: The Darkness II's commendable mechanics are matched by numerous wonky moments, an awkward cast of characters and some wearying repetition. It's got plenty of heart, but it needs more soul.
