In this PS3 game, whose story continues on from the first title, you play as Jackie Estacado a comic book anti-hero.

Following the murder of his girlfriend Jackie has revenge on his mind. He may wish that this was all he had to contend with but if you played the first game you will know that inside Jackie is a malevolent being known as the Darkness. New don't need to have played the first game as you are soon brought up to speed in this latest release.

Jackie has managed to keep the Darkness under control but after been attacked he releases it to defend himself and then the all-powerful Darkness becomes the dominant force and difficult to keep under wraps.

The game is a fun ride if not a little too short, the story solid and entertaining, and overall this game had me surprised at how much I enjoyed it as my first impressions were not great.
