  • The Darkness II gets "M" rating from ESRB

    ESRB has revealed its rating summary for The Darkness II. The first person shooter from 2K Games received M for Mature rating due to contents relating to blood, gore, drug reference, intense violence, strong language and strong sexual content.

    The Darkness 2We have the complete rating summary of The Darkness II from ESRB. You can check it out below.

    This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of Jackie Estacado, a mafia boss possessed by a supernatural force called the Darkness. Players use pistols, assault rifles, shotguns, swords, and axes to kill human enemies and demonic creatures; the frenetic battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, screams of pain, and large splashes of blood that stain the surrounding environment. Players can also use snake-like Demon Arms (attached to Jackie's body) to impale enemies, collect human hearts, and perform “execution” moves. These executions depict several “over-the-top” instances of violence: tearing enemies' limbs/heads from bodies; slicing characters in half; removing characters' spines. In some sequences, players have the ability to attack and kill bystanders or unarmed adversaries. During the course of the game, players can enter a brothel and walk through its halls. A few instances of sexual activity can be observed in the brothel: a woman performing fellatio on a man (e.g., camera depicts the woman's head moving up and down); a man pushing up against a woman's posterior as she is bent over—sexual moaning and slapping sounds can be heard, though nudity and close-up depictions of these sex acts are never shown. The dialogue occasionally references drugs (e.g., “[H]e was too busy snortin' coke off a hooker's a*s.”) and includes the words “f**k,” “sh*t,” “c*nt,” and “a*shole.”

    The Darkness II is schedule to launch on February 7 for PS3 and Xbox 360. Earlier today 2K Games revealed the demo date for The Darkness II, you can check out complete details on it HERE.

    J.P. DuMond: A former doctor from New Orleans, DuMond is burdened with guilt for using a form of Louisiana Voodoo to heal his patients.
