It doesn't take you long to be pulled into the story. The Darkness 2 does a great job of immersing you into the feelings and thoughts of the main character, which is a rarity in modern day gaming. Often you are very disconected from the story and the emotions of the characters. Lately, the only other game I have played that did such a great job of pulling you in, emotionally, was BioShock Infinite.
Beyond the story, which while nothing especially impressive, what is there is enough and is well orcestrated. The most impressive feat is the game's ability to put you in the shoes of the main character and really doubt what is real and what is not real (in the game).
The gameplay is top notch though and if you enjoy shooters where you run from one area to the next and have to clear all the waves of enemies, then this is a game for you. The gunplay is fun and has impact and the tentacles are well implemented so that they are not overpowered and yet are still very fun and exciting to use. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=304584465
I found myself using primarily guns but definitely had to use my powers frequently to stay in the fight. I was glad though that the powers did not dominate the gameplay so that you simply use the powers when you feel the need and are not forced to constantly use the powers. In some games where you have powers they dominate the other gameplay mechanics to the point that you find yourself only using the powers and nothing else. Fortunately, this is not the case in the Darkness 2.http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=304361429
The graphics are not impressive or special, but they make up for what they lack in the style, which once you've played the game to completion the style will make sense. A lot of people were surprised when they first revealed the first gameplay video of The Darkness 2 because of the art style they had used. But there is a definite reason for it and it only further helps immerse you into the world of confusion that the main character is living in.http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=304584504
The soundtrack is great and the voice work is top quality. All in all, it is a very fun game with a decent story that manages to pull you in and leaves you desiring more.
Would definitely recommend giving this game a spin! It is a great purchase and a great experience to play through once or even twice! In addition there are even some co-op missions to further the experience, so if you have a friend to play it with it will add a few more hours of quality gameplay.
