My 2 Yr Old Loves This Game

My 2 yr old brother loves The Darkness II. He loves using the demon arms to slash enemies in two and laughs at the splashes of blood across the screen; he really enjoys gutting his foes (cue entrails fall out, which he finds hilarious) and he thinks the dual-pistols are amazing! He loves the sections in the brothel and the opening when SPOILERS! two bikini-clad girls are bloodily executed by a sniper. I say, buy this for your kid and he'll love every bloody, gory, shooty second of it.

OMG!!! Epic game but not for kids.

Im ten years old and im getting this game for my birthday and have played the demo. Great game but super violent and gory mixed with sex (no nude) and language (well you would swear if youre getting your face ripped off by demon arms) BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!

Just wondering

anyone else find it funny that kids say that kids shouldnt play this game... but the kids themselves play the games.

The Darkness will consume your soul.Literally.

Yo people,just got this game and have been playing it at least 5 hours a day for the past few weeks now.Ive completed the game and so can confidently say,THIS GAME IS NOT FOR KIDS.Bloody violence and gore is splashed at every opportunity and you fight gruesome enemies,with a huge amount of weapons like Demon Arms which are my favorite weapons in the whole game.Profanity,heavy but kids will get used it,sex is mild but lots of implied references.Take that to get off under 16.

fun to play

A lot of my friends talk about this game and how inappropriate it was. I have seen the game. Kids on this site only say it's not for kids only because they are following exactly what esrb says.Some games can't be judged by what the back of the box says. There is a lot of violence but there is violence everywhere now. Some profanity but not much. If the parents say that you can play it than go for it. Overall a good game.

Great game but very graphic

Very well made game, but mainly for older teens and adults. The reason is because of it's strong violence as well as language. You can graphically dismember and shoot your enemies with gory results and this is throughout the game. There is non-stop language that is graphic as well. There is some strong sexual content such as strong implications, but none of them contain nudity but are still fairly strong. Not for kids or people sensitive to violence. Suggested MPAA Rating R: Strong Bloody Violence and Gore, Grisly and Distributing Images, Pervasive Language, and Some Strong Sexual Content

the sexual content is it really that bad?

during the brothel scene u can barely see anything except if you purposely try and look into the crack in each of the doors in the brothel and you can barely hear it as long as you as well stay away from the cracks in the door, if you just carry on with the mission you wont see anything. the only sexual talk in the game is when the main character is talking about having sex to make a baby. most 12 year olds in school already learn about sexual intercourse as it is taught in the 8th grade and most 13 year olds nowa days already use strong language trust me i used to come from a school where even the 7th graders where already using stronger language than f..k you, mother f.....r, b...h a.s hole and so forth
