Darkness 2 review - 7/10 in Edge

Postby jdkoke » 07 Feb 2012, 17:02

Loved the first game but the demo didn't grab me at all. Will put it on my Lovefilm list anyway and I ken it's unfair to judge on a demo but it seems a massive step down from tha first game to me

You see what the media and media hype machine has done? If anything gets under a 9 these days,people don't want to know.7 out of 10 is a good score,it's above average.Also a 7 from Edge is high praise indeed.

When edge were a credible gaming resource then maybe i would have cared about this score of a 7 because as many of us know edge reviewers are brutal.

However since late last year when edge became the new Cosmo GQ hybrid for games i cant stand to pick it up, i swear i only buy it still just to keep my 100% collection of it going and nothing else, im waiting for next months issue where they should post the new ABC figures for it because everyone knows they took a hit on subscription cancellations.

Still on a more positive note cant wait for darkness 2, demo rocked, loved the original and glad to have a shooter thats not a yearly sequel with over the top DLC.... You wait now i said that they will annouce some sort of map pack at 11.99 lol lol lol

Why do people still read reviews? Haven't you figured out yet, I did, since they rated modern warfares higher than much better games. First modern warfare was ok, but only 4 hour campaign? The first Darness had a much better campaign than the 3 modern warfares together. Just try a demo and see how it goes for you.

This has gone on my buy list after playing the demo. Good, dark fun. Think I'll get a copy of part 1 first though.

Good plan. It's brilliant and pretty cheap in most places too.
