If they do make a 3rd game I would prefer it to be more like the original.  I missed the free roaming elements of the original, the use of stealth with the creeping dark tendril attack and the realistic graphics.  Yeah! I get the fact that the game is based on a comic so the cell shaded effect seemed the natural choice.  My problem was that this was not used in the original so it didn't seem like a sequel but rather a different game based on the darkness, which is like the difference between the new batman game based on the movie compared with "Batman Arkham City". Continuity goes along way in  game and movie franchises.

  The darkness 2 was too arcade like for my taste.  Good story lines make epic games.  If the story line in a sequel is not as good as the on in the first game there is a problem.  If a developer doesn't know where next to take a character's story they should probably leave it alone.  A good example of quitting when ones ahead would be the "Uncharted" series.  Drake's story was told, Naughty Dog move to next project, "The last of us", Cole's story was told in "Infamous 2", they finish the franchise.  Sometimes developers just make game follow ups to make money of the success of the originals.  I didn't think Max Payne 2 had as good a story as Max Payne 1.  I lost interest in the Max Payne sequel's story in the same way I lost interest in the darkness 2's story.

i really really hope there will be a darkness 3 because i love both the darkness`s but the secound one is way better i really like how good and slick the controls are. my wish list for the darkness 3 is...

another amazing story as jackie 

multiplayer (super fast paced really gory and extream chaos)

a survival mode (you trapped in a room with waves of enemies coming for you and a ton of ammo scattered all around with lots of weapons on the ground and having all the darkness powers at your usage.) now that would be fun!!! 

 

i really hope the developers read my post and make a darkness 3 with the things i listed. =D

It was one of the best FPS games I have played in the past few years. Also, the game isn't really short if you count in the NG+ mode and the Vendetta's campaign AND the hitlist missions.

@Lotus-Edge I definitely agree with you 100% game was gr8 from start to finish and I must admit being a lover of the Darkness 1 I thought they messed up by switching the graphic but boy was I wrong one of the best games I played and the story was mind blowing to me.

Johnny Powell completely ruined parts of the story for me. He's the Jar Jar Binks of the darkness as far as I'm concerned.
