Trivia

While wandering the subway searching for Jenny's place, a homeless man sleeping on a bench has a tv in a shopping cart playing the news. If you wait, after the news is an awesome heavy metal video show that shows actual videos from actual artists in surprising, if not tiny, screen quality.

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 »

Great game
28 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Jackie Estacado is a mafia hit-man that has turned 21 and is inherited with some kind of demon possessing him. Now I know this might not be everyones idea of a good game but this game is pretty good.

I love this game I love sucking my enemies into a black hole, impaling them with an anaconda-sized tentacle and devouring the enemies hearts... I will tell you for a survival horror I was impressed there is a reason that you're in the dark all the time, you have to be in the darkness to survive if not then I'll applaud you if you last 3 seconds.

All in all one of my favourite games but not for everyone. being I am a comic Book fan I will tell you I read the comic book after I played this and both of them are good.
