Humble Bundle free game “The Darkness II”

Humble Bundle offers another game for free, this time Digital Extremes‘ dark FPS comic adaptation The Darkness II.

I still remember playing both the original and this sequel without having read the comic series it was based on, and it was a great experience. Being Jackie Estacado whose rise to a mafia boss with supernatural powers is as badass as it can be, even if the second game is much more action-focused and less tragic and emotionally draining than the predecessor. Still, going against the mysterious Brotherhood results in a war that is full of dual-wielding gun-fights, explosions and mutilated bodies, making it quite a thrilling adrenaline ride.

What sets the game apart from other FPS is the use of the powers The Darkness puts into the hands of Jackie, and with the ability to send minions against enemies or rip them apart with tentacles is a sight that’s not for the squeamish. This might explain why there are so many cuts in the German edition. Of course I imported the UK Xbox 360 version, and it was a blast to play through it. Even if the story isn’t as compelling, it’s a spectacle only the best of AAA games can offer. Being able to download it for free is even better. Of course Steam also means region-specific versions, so if you live in Germany, you still get that horrible low violence version, but if you’re not, then you’ll get one of the most violent and fun shooters around for free. However, the offer only lasts until tomorrow, March 28, 10 a.m. Pacific time.
