The Darkness II Is II Short And II Great.

It took me 5 hours to finish the game in the "Hitman" difficulty. I 'm saying that because this game is extremely short and costs 29.99 euros. That's not a fair price and that's bad because honestly the game is awesome. But 29.99 euros for a 5 hour game (in the hard difficulty) released 6 years ago are a lot of money. In my opinion buy this game on sale, but be sure to buy it because it's one of the very good FPS experiences out there.

You don't have to play the previous game to get into the story (i have not) and have a good time. But to be honest here the story is not that great BUT the story-telling and the gameplay is enough for me to give this game an 8/10.

Thank god that this game has new game+ because i want to play it again with all the new superpowers that I unlocked sometime before I finish it.

Let's hope for The Darkness III.
