During a livestream I watched, one of the developers confirmed that there are secret achievements in The Darkness II. Xbox360Achievements also lists several secret achievements, so I assume this to be true, at least for the Xbox 360 version.

What are those, and how do I unlock them?

Since in the Steam version the developer can't hide achievements, it's clear what they are, see here: http://steamcommunity.com/stats/67370/achievements

The ones without description are the secret achievements.

I will list them here and update the answer when I know how to unlock them:

  • Cheque Please! - I Got this one when I got reunited with fat tony after the subway level. Doesn't seem to be more than a "story achievement"
  • I'm Just Getting Started - Find and interrogate Swifty
  • Escape the Brotherhood - Survive the interrogation
  • Storm the Mansion - Take back your mansion
  • One Flew Over... - Return to reality...?
  • Sweet Revenge - Avenge your Aunt Sarah
  • Allies in Strange Places - Escape the asylum with help from the inside
  • Date Night - Protect Jenny
  • Back in the Saddle - Rescue Jackie from the Iron Maiden
  • Step into Hell... - Defeat Victor

Xbox360Achievements actually lists their descriptions now, and I've unlocked them on Steam as well, so here's the deal.

The only true secret achievement is:

Decisions, Decisions - Refuse to cooperate with Victor in the Interrogation

At one point, you're forced to sacrifice either Frank or Eddie. If you don't decide by not pressing anything, one of them will be killed anyway, and the achievement will unlock. Not sure if it's random, but he killed Eddie both times I refused to pick one.

All of the other secret achievements are pure story achievements. If you play the campaign, you will get them, and going into too much detail would just spoil the story (which is probably why they're hidden in the first place). These are:

  • Cheque Please! - Survive the hit at the start of the campaign
  • I'm Just Getting Started - Find and interrogate Swifty
  • Escape the Brotherhood - Survive the interrogation
  • Storm the Mansion - Take back your mansion
  • One Flew Over... - Return to reality...?
  • Sweet Revenge - Avenge your Aunt Sarah
  • Allies in Strange Places - Escape the asylum with help from the inside
  • Date Night - Protect Jenny
  • Back in the Saddle - Rescue Jackie from the Iron Maiden
  • Step into Hell... - Defeat Victor

The last one is also a story achievement, but for the Vendetta campaign (more specifically, for finishing it).

Should Have Called 555-2368… - Survive the battle against the Hell Beast

The phone number is a reference to Ghostbusters, by the way. And, just so you know, there's a Hell Beast at the end of Vendetta mode. I bet I just totally ruined the complex and involved story for you.
