Calm Down Tom (Feb 13, 2012)
If you want to make sure you enjoy the end of the game, don’t watch the post credits scene which tries its best to ruin the whole game. It doesn’t succeed though. The rest of the game is too good to be ruined by this single misstep. The Darkness 2 is my favourite game of the year so far. By a distance. Its story is frequently clichéd, thoroughly B-Movie and occasionally incomprehensible. It is also touching, exciting and utterly engrossing. Combine this with some of the best over the top action in a first person shooter in years and you have a wonderful game. I may have played better games, but none have held my attention so fully over a concentrated weekend of play. I envy anyone who hasn’t played The Darkness 2 yet. You have so much to experience. Go on an adventure with Jackie Estacado right now. You won’t regret it.

Lo que queremos es arrancarle la cabeza a un enemigo más mientras vaciamos el cargador. Y una vez lo hacemos, damos un paso más hacia la oscuridad.

Digital Extremes has delivered the goods with The Darkness II, marrying story, action and great gameplay. It might be a little on the short side, but the story warrants multiple replays and co-op adds a little bit of much-needed longevity. So go on, embrace The Darkness. You know you want to.

Der Tritt aufs Bremspedal verleiht dem Spiel und seinen Figuren spürbar mehr Tiefe, was wiederum der guten Handlung zugutekommt: Das ständige Hin und Her zwischen Fiktion und Wirklichkeit, die dreckigen Illusionen der Finsternis, Jackies stetes Trudeln in den Wahnsinn - sehr cool! Man kann sich auch einfach durch das Spiel ballern, erlebt in dieser Variante aber einen eher normalen Shooter mit schlaffer KI. Besonders wird er erst durch seine Tempowechsel, den kreativen Umgang mit den Tentakeln und der Umgebung, nicht aufgrund der durchschnittlichen Action, die so typisch für Digital Extremes ist. Schade auch, dass uns die deutsche Version wieder mal einen großen Teil des morbiden Schnetzelvergnügens vorenthält. Aber auch so bleibt The Darkness 2 ein ebenso unterhaltsamer wie kreativer Shooter - im Gegensatz zu seinem markanteren Vorgänger wird er allerdings wohl keine tiefen Spuren hinterlassen.

Digital Extremes ably picks up where Starbreeze left off, crafting a satisfyingly brutal adventure that only rarely loses its way.

The Darkness II is a visceral and stylish slaughter-fest. While the single player content is fairly short it is so well done and, more importantly, a joy to play that I find it hard not to recommend it to anyone that is looking for a mature gameplay experience.
I haven’t played a game to completion twice in a single sitting since Portal 2, which should roughly hint at the quality of experience that awaits: It’s short and sweet, with a decent cooperative multiplayer side-story for added value. And by “sweet,” I mean you can hang a thug upside-down and rip their intestines out through their ass.

If you are looking to feel powerful and dark at the same time then the psychological thriller that awaits you in Darkness II might be what you are after.

While some might find The Darkness II to be gratuitously gory killing spree of a game, I found it fun. I didn’t need to think about an elaborate character build, I didn’t need to spend hours level grinding and I didn’t worry about collecting every single item or looking for hidden weapons (although if that’s your thing there are hidden relics to discover in each level). Pop in The Darkness II and go on your merry way cutting enemies down, eating hearts and — listening to mobsters crack wise. Eh, as long as you skip that last part, The Darkness II is a fun, albeit short romp through the criminal underworld and several sets of NPC innards that you’ll be glad you took.
The Video Game Critic (Feb 17, 2012)
The Darkness II has its flaws, but it manages to stand out from other first-person shooters, and there's something to be said about that.

Profondément différent de son prédécesseur, The Darkness II adopte un style plus classique et proche des standards du FPS actuel. Un revirement un peu déroutant puisqu'on passe d'un jeu à l'approche presque "cérébrale" à un titre quasi intégralement tourné vers l'action. Pas sûr que les fans du premier opus s'y retrouvent mais cela donne naissance à un soft extrêmement brutal qui a cependant su conserver quelques clefs importantes du volet original, à savoir ne pas oublier qu'il s'agit avant tout d'une histoire d'amour plongée dans l'horreur. Pas toujours très adroit et plus proche du remake hollywoodien que de la suite, The Darkness II saura à coup sûr séduire les amateurs d'hémoglobine.
