I had completely forgotten about the first game...
2K Announces The Darkness II For Fall
" PSYCHED! I'm worried about Digital Extremes being on the project, as they don't have the greatest of track records. Suffice it to say, the first game's overall gameplay was pretty stiff, but that's not why people played it. You played the first game because the story, narrative, and characterization were fucking PHENOMENAL, and the twist mid-game was goddamn brutal and emotionally charge. Here's to hoping for a bomb-ass game. "@jakob187: amen brother the first one in my opinion had one of the best narratives this gen
Well, I love the plot so far. i think thats a great approach to focus on the Darkness itself. The first was a real sleeper hit, and one of the more impressive games for its time. I hope this can live up to that, but its not going to have the shock value of "i really wast expecting this to be such a great game" going for it this time around. Its one of the better and prob underrated IPs out there so I hope they treat it like it deserves.
The 1st one was epic and was like playing the role of the main character through a gripping movie, The storyline and Jackie Estacado’s quotes were what made this game great! i still have the 1st game installed on my Xbox harddrive and i still play through it from start to finish!
Great news for the 2nd i cant wait and hope its just as good as the 1st one!
Original developers were too busy with eating meatballs or something?
Me being a Starbreeze Studios fan and having a recollection Dark Sector being not so good this news doesnt sound all that good eventhough Darkness II sounds good as I really liked the original. Hopefully this sequel will contain the minor diversions from normal fps action with talking to citizens and doing liltte sidequests for them.
" I still need to finish the first one. It's probably not going to happen with the backlog of better games I have to play. "I made it partway through the game, but I kind of ran into the double whammy of motion sickness (which happens occasionally when I play FPS games, but not with most modern ones), and some obnoxious bugs (for example, I left the game on when Jackie was watching "To Kill A Mockingbird" with his girlfriend, and I dozed off. When I woke up, we were on loop two... and Jackie's girlfriend had fallen asleep, and now Jackie couldn't get up from the couch.)
