The Darkness II Amps Up... Pretty Much Everything
Not a fan of cel shaded graphics. Loved the first game, it had its flaws but it did make you feel like a bad ass when enemies feared you as tentacles ripped into the chests of enemies and threw them around.
With so many great games coming out this year I doubt I will be getting this.
So what? if Nolan North is voicing anything in a game it immediately makes it bad? Come on man. This is a short teaser trailer, not an end of the world epitaph.
My favourite part of the first game was when you stormed the mansion at the end. I remember walking up with pathway, not shooting a single bullet, ripping hearts out and heads off left and right, whipping people and lights and wreaking havoc.
If this game can instill that sense of power, I'm sold.
Looks like they've got some capable animators involved, upon first watch it seems like they've brought a darn sight more character to the movements than many can manage. Exaggerated too, couldn't ask for much more from a comic book adaptation.
I really enjoyed the first game for it's atmosphere, it really didn't feel like an awful lot like many other games out there (this could be starbreeze's stamp but I haven't played any of their other games) and they made good use of the first person perspective in storytelling, something this one looks to continue.
Mark me optimistic!
I enjoy the art style, but the over-the-top nature of, well, everything is a complete put-off. I understand that this is a trailer, but the trailer's telling me that they've lost that wonderfully mature, dark tone of the first title in favour of... superheroism?
