Review Round-Up: The Darkness II

The Darkness II, inspired by the comic book series, is the successor to the first game. It takes place a few years after the events of The Darkness where our hero, Jackie Estacado, has managed to become the don of the crime family and suppress his darkness powers. Developed by Digital Extremes, The Darkness II is a First-person shoot that uses the unique mechanic of quad-wielding. This allows you to wield two guns in addition to your two darkness arms that lets you grab and slash enemies and objects. Do these new mechanics add to the overall game, see what the critics have to say.
