What is the Darkness, you ask? In case you missed out on the original game... or your memory is fuzzy from 2007, 2K Games has released a three minute video that covers all the basics. You'll learn exactly what the Darkness is, and who Jackie Estacado is. You'll see how Jackie's relationship with the mob gets a bit messy to say the least, thanks to his demon arms.

Just be warned: the video is not for the queasy. Who knew humans were so... fragile?

In addition to summarizing the events so far, the video introduces a new jittery character from the forthcoming sequel. Johnny Powell, the video's narrator, will play a key role in the game, but it's unclear how.

The Darkness II will be available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on February 7, 2012.

      I liked the first one, it was a great 2nd tier game. It's defiantly one of those underrated titles. Too bad it never got a PC port.

      Looks a bit repetitive =/
