"...I got the game on sale, and it's running beautifully... Great game!"

"This is honestly the best game out there for the mac right now.  Overall the game story is great, so is the gameplay.  It is on my top 5 games."

"If you liked the first game, then I would recommend this one!"

Inspired by the popular comic book series produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II is an intense first person shooter that delivers a twisted and gripping narrative of tragedy, modern crime drama, and supernatural horror.

Players will be taken down the brutal and personal path of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction known as The Darkness.

It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado used The Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He’s been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up his supernatural power and now The Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack by a mysterious organization known as the Brotherhood heralds the start of a full-scale war and opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, setting Jackie on a journey to hell and worse.

Customer Reviews

False Advertising. Don’t waste your money

Got this game on sale from steam and it had the yellow screen bug in it, so I ended up buying it for $20 on the mac store, which is supposed to be reliable and monitored. Considering the latest update said it had new support for OS X Yosemite, I bit the bullet and gave it a shot. I shouldn’t have. The app launches and there’s audio that teases me, as there’s no video. There are no visuals whatsoever. Apple needs to refund those who bought this app and clearly have the minimum requirements, because this game simply doesn’t work. That’s not okay. I wasted my money on something that blatently doesn’t work. Either fix this or give me my money back.

Works well with a few glitches

The game works well on my macbook air give or take a few glitches. The glitches include lagging video speed and points where the background goes completely dark. The game can still be played with these problems. If the black background makes navigation difficult, look up a walkthrough online and use it to help. Basically the game does function, although not perfectly, and is very fun to play.

Game won’t play

I bought a new macbook pro this year and re-downloaded onto it, but it won’t play at all. I stopped playing on my old macbook because of all the bugs. I thought they would fix all the issues that the game has had for years, but I was very wrong. Do not buy this game it doesn’t play and has TONS of bugs that make the lucky few to get play time frustrated. It’s more than frustrating that apple still lets games like this stay in the market for people to lose money on.
