We had a play of The Darkness II at the MCM Expo, and had mixed opinions, however with the terrific story driven shooter promising just as emotional a ride as the original, we can’t help but get a little excited.
Since the end of The Darkness, time has been well for Jackie, he is the head of the Franchetti family, and he’s managed to put all of his troubles with Paul, Jenny and most importantly The Darkness behind him. However, life isn't happily ever-after for Jackie, after an almost successful hit on his life; The Darkness is reborn within him, and before he knows it, everyone is out to get him, and he's begun seeing Jenny once more.
