Review: The Darkness II

Unboxing The Darkness II with a badass Darkling statue

Hands-on: Quad-wielding with The Darkness II

2007's The Darkness was a fun, albeit flawed first-person shooter. The Starbreeze-developed title followed the exploits of Mafioso hitman Jackie Estacado on his 21st birthday as a hidden demonic power awakens inside him and he becomes a rel...

Feast your eyes on The Darkness II demo walkthrough

If there's one thing I love more than blasting holes in the heads of my enemies from fifty feet away, it's ripping them in half from crotch to sternum with my giant demon tentacles. Fortunately for me, both of those things are possibl...

Meet Jackie's co-op friends in The Darkness II

Jackie Estacado wasn't somebody I would have wanted to meet in a alley even when nobody was watching his back. Now he's teaming up with a batch of hombres to take down The Brotherhood and that nervous guy who narrates all of these trailers...
