I'm was about to start playing through this on PC (Amazon sale FTW). I own the original on the xbox 360. I dislike analog stick controls for shooters. Worth it to play through The Darkness (original) before I start a play through of The Darkness 2?
Play The Darkness (original) first?
The only major theme that carries over is your relationship with Jenny. So no, Start with II if you want, you will not miss anything terribly important. While I see a lot of people here talking it down, I actually thought II was much more straightforward and well put together. The first one made an effort to feel open world, but failed because of how empty it actually was. I like Starbreeze as a studio and I thought the Riddick games were good, but the first Darkness left a lot to be desired. The art style and animations were pretty great though.
