Finally i finished this game just now, its kinda short, fortunately there are new game plus mode and co-op up to 4 players if you want to complete the achievements.
This game tells a story about a demon-infested mobster Jackie Estacado, who being attacked by a group called Brotherhood who want to take The Darkness (the demon inside Jackie's body). First time i see Jackie, its kinda remind me of Tian, a character from manhua Feng Shen ji, cause Tian have 2 dragons on his back, just like Jackie does.
And this Darkness thing is a badass, its really fun playing with it, we are not just shoot the enemies with guns but it can allow you to perform variety of gruesome executions (its really gore, decapitate and dismember the enemies) with things surround us like poles, car doors, even trash bin. lol
We can upgrade the darkness for several power up like black holes, more health, extra ammo, shield, flies swarm etc. yeah its kinda overpowered when we have several extra limbs to fight with enemies but it still has a weakness, light, when we covered with light the darkness will dissapear immediately.
One thing that keep me playing is the story, the story make you keep curious and interested, the loss of jenny (jackie's girlfriend), his father and the struggle to control the darkness it the main plot in this game. the moment i loved the most when we are at asylum and they said Jackie are sick and delusional, with all characters at the asylum with their roles and several clues like The Darkness comics book, picture on the wall, its make you really think which one is the reality, is Jackie made things up? is he really a patient or a leader of a mobster?, is the darkness really exist? its make me play this game till finished it.
Overall this game is good, not so special but if you like something dark, violent, brutal, gore and fleshy, this FPS is worth your time, probably wait for some discount. 7/10.
