Probably because of their fees, want too much money.

This will be a huge let down without Starbreeze onboard though.

Aspect ratio was not working correctly for 16:10/16:9 resolutions. But the game was ported to PC by another company, so it wasn't their fault.

I remember playing the Darkness demo on PS3 and thinking that the resolution was at something like 320x240. Damn it looked so ugly with aliasing everywhere.

Dark Sector was ok.

Darkness was a pretty good game. I hope they do a good job of porting this sequel to PC.

I wonder if Mike Patton will still be doing the voice, he was pretty damn good.

I really liked Dark Sector too and had no problems with it. Any game that lets me throw the blade almost strait out of Krull in slow motion to take out three plus bad guys is tops in my book.

I was having crashes with Dark Sektor in Windows XP (BSOD in specific areas with the error indicating a hardware malfunction). The game however worked like a charm in Windows 7. Simply lol at that

I hope this is good, it was such an underrated game. One of my favourites, a pretty unique game. I think i purcharsed it for about £15 about a month after it came out!

Travelling the subways got a little tiresome sometimes though.

Even screenshot looks bad. Seems to have somewhat a bit of cellshading.... Darknes1 had what I would call.. a go for realistic graphics. On xbox360 it runs 720p and 4xaa. Which not many 360 games do. It looks great.

I guess I am too sceptic about Darkness 2:P

I agree the original was very gritty in comparison....
