Have we been here before? I could swear we’ve been here before. That name, Need for Speed Most Wanted, is so familiar… Ah yes, now I remember. Another open world racing game by the same name was released…almost eight years ago now. But the new Most Wanted stumbles off the line in ways its earlier namesake and many of its predecessors do not and is rather difficult to recommend because of it.
Far from hot on the heels of its predecessor, The Darkness II is a follow-up to 2007’s The Darkness, a first person shooter that launched to pretty favorable reviews due to its gritty, noir-esque presentation, good narrative, interesting characters and, of course, the game’s titular Darkness powers, which helped it stand out in the overpopulated shooter genre. With a new developer at the helm, The Darkness II builds upon its predecessor with a new presentation and a new set of Darkness powers in tow.
