Do I need to play The Darkness to understand what's happening in The Darkness II, Or is it as easy as reading up on the plot?

Is highly recommendable to play the first game before. You will comprehend and appreciate better the second one. You will know the characters, the world, and so on. Besides, Darkness 1 is a very nice game and you will enjoy it.

But is not necessary: At the beginning of the Darkness II you have a really complete prologue that will tell you all you need to know.

It's like impossible to find the darkness online too. Steam doesn't sell it. And the only shop that does is like 60km away from me xD – Charkz Jul 10 '14 at 9:53
@Charkz have you looked on Amazon? – SysDragon Jul 10 '14 at 10:02
I have not. But I imagine that and Amazon will charge P&P and the game will be a lot dearer, but I'll check now. – Charkz Jul 10 '14 at 11:16
@Charkz It was afaik never on PC, that is why you cannot get it on Steam. – user28015 Jul 10 '14 at 14:37
