The Demo for The Darkness II was already available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 but now it is available to play on PC via Steam.
From the Official Site “The Darkness II is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 release The Darkness. Inspired by the popular comic book series produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II is an intense first person shooter that puts you in the role of Jackie Estacado, don of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient force of chaos known as The Darkness.”

“It’s been two years since Jackie used his power 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 The Darkness and now it wants out. A botched attempt on Jackie’s life opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a brutal and personal journey as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motives of The Darkness.”
The Darkness II E3 Trailer
I never played the first Darkness game so I don’t know whether they are that similar but the game reminds me a lot of Borderlands and bit of Max Payne with its graphic comic book art style. Also the story seems like it could be quite interesting.
Try out the demo to see for yourself.
