The Darkness


Bigger?


I got my hands on a copy of The Darkness a few days ago and, naturally enough, I've been playing the hell out of it ever since. It didn't take long to finish and the story wasn't the greatest, but I have to say that the background game details were absolutely cracking! I spent hours walking around staring at the graffiti, which it turns out was designed by Swedish graffiti artists as the actual New York graffiti is subject to copyright issues... 0__o

My favourite elements, however, were the Darklings; little surprise there. Doing their best to cause as much havoc as possible, these cute little goblin-like daemons not only kill it and hump it but they'll piss on the corpse afterwards. Oh, and you get to dress them up too! It's just like the Barbie!

Anywees, I'm off to look at the lovely concept artwork, which you can unlock in-game by playing some of the side missions.
