game where you feel invincible. I found it refreshing, as if Digital Extremes were looking at the back catalogue of those hardcore games we all remember playing at some point.

My hands-on time with The Darkness II's co-op mode painted it as a more structured Left 4 Dead. While Left 4 Dead randomised its encounters with the hoard, The Darkness II's enemy wave sections were entirely scripted, but I'm not convinced that it's a bad thing. There are various objectives to complete in each map, but they all propel the story rather than just minor variations of "get to the safe zone". Whether or not there's enough content within to stretch it out further remains to be seen, but from what I've seen so far, it's certainly a fair bit of fun.
