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?

1 Answer 1


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

  • I have not. But I imagine that Play.com and Amazon will charge P&P and the game will be a lot dearer, but I'll check now.
