Goofs

It's well known that light is the major weakness of the Darkness. When Jackie goes to rescue Jenny from Uncle Paulie and Captain Shrote, the Darkness grabs Jackie and pulls him into a brightly lit room to see both men holding Jenny hostage. Instead of being weakened from prolonged exposure and disappearing back into Jackie, it manages to remain in the light and keep a tight grip on Jackie. See more »

Quotes

Jackie Estacado: This place reminds me of a guy I knew. Joey Polanco. He had this bad habit of killing the wrong people all the time. Dumbest fucking hitman in history. My Uncle Paulie, threw him under the train down there.

The Darkness makes for a rather good first person shooter with a bit of a twist.
11 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

It took me awhile to finally play this game because I always got mixed reviews on it, however upon finally playing and completing this game I have to say I rather enjoyed it. It had a good story, I loved ripping the hearts out of my enemies and the graphics were rather good to for one of the earlier Playstation 3 titles. It does have its assortment of problems too, some times it is hard to control your snake thing when sending it on the attack, your darklings get killed rather easily and so forth. However, those problems need a little addressing don't they cause if you have not played this game you are thinking "What?". The game is about a guy in the mob named Jackie who is about to have the head of the family against him. Yes, Jackie has fallen out of favor with his uncle Paulie and at the start of the game you and the two guys you are with are infiltrated by the many crooked cops who basically work for Paulie. This is Jackie's 21st birthday, however, and he is about to gain a special power, or you could say a dark power is about to control Jackie. This power is the Darkness and it manifests itself around Jackie in the form of two snakes and tentacles. So you have your basic shooter combat where you kill with guns, and on top of that you now have the Darkness powers which can be used to kill very efficiently such as sending the snakes out to do stealth kills, using the tentacles to move cars and kill people, and later in the game manifest black holes. You also now have the ability to summon creatures called darklings which sometimes they can be effective and sometimes not so much. So using Jackie you now must take your revenge against your uncle Paulie and Eddie Shrote the crooked captain of the police as they do something that really ticks Jackie off. You also have to try and control the Darkness, though that seems to be a losing battle. As I said rather fun game, just needs work in a few areas, however ending is not one of them, very good emotional ending to this one.
