Buying Decision:

From what we could derive from all these reviews and word of mouth from our friends The Darkness 2 is a must buy, day one purchase for Darkness zealots.  If you liked the first one, but weren’t a mega fan we recommend waiting for a price drop especially if you only plan on playing the single player campaign.  If you didn’t enjoy the first one at all then we recommend that you don’t buy the game period.  Also keep in mind that there is a demo so you can always try before you buy.
