Based on the Top Cow comic, The Darkness is a mature, Mafioso adventure, set in modern times but steeled by ancient magic. Players take the leading role of mob hit man Jackie Estacado, who acquires supernatural powers known as "The Darkness" as he reaches his 21st birthday. Gameplay involves exploration and combat through interactive, destructible New York City environments. The plotline is balanced on conflicts between Jackie's ambitions and his family's underworld entrenchment, and on the conflicts between Jackie's own human personality and that of his supernatural side. The Darkness was developed by Sweden's Starbreeze Studios, which gained much positive recognition for its 2004 Xbox and PC game, The Chronicles of Riddick. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
