Didn't realize this sold well enough to get a sequel. Played the first and, being a fan of the comic, looking forward to the second.

Yeah I'm surprised as well. First one was fun though and looking forward to this one also.

I enjoyed the first one at the time.  Not sure if I'm up for another round, but we'll see.

IN!

Got this as a rental and loved it.  If they can do more with the atmosphere while not making it a sandbox game, it could be totally awesome.  The MP of the first one was fun too...though I didn't play it that much.

This is kinda how I feel.  The first one was great at the time, but I'm not convinced I'd like it as much if I were playing it for the first time today.

If they've updated the feel of the sequel, then I'm in.  Otherwise, I'm cautiously optimistic.

the style is very hard to judge from the one screen they've released so far, but cel shaded would have been my last guess that's what they meant by 'visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique '.  I was thinking it meant cut scnes like Max Payne.

It's not being made by the original team, it's being made by the guys who made Dark Sector which wasn't very good.

I loved the first The Darkness, I'm cautiously optimistic about this one.

Nowhere near that long.  Definitely less than an hour, I think.

So far, the sequel plays and looks fantastic. Haven't tried the co-op missions yet but so far this is much improved from the original Darkness.

Gamespot review says the single player campaign is only 5 hours. Think I may just replay the first one, which I never did quite finish.

While I enjoyed the first overall, the scene with you and your girlfriend watching the movie was just an incredible gaming moment. I was so connected to the game during that scene.

Took me about 7 hours this morning to play the campaign.  Then there is also New Game + to do with more unlocks.  There are also 4 coop players to be run through an alternate campaign as well as some stand alone coop missions.  Definitely getting my money worth.

Too bad there isn't any day 1 dlc  ninja

Someone actually clamoring for DLC?

How was the campaign compared to the original? I haven't been following this, but I was a fan of the original game and it looks like they made some improvements to gameplay, and actually continue the story.

I'll pick this up eventually, but at what price I'll get it at will be based on fellow fan's reviews.
