The Darkness Demo: Brutal

It's been months since an non-Halo FPS has immediately gripped my attention. The last was F.E.A.R., which unfortunately, none of my friend's list plays or you'd see me on there a lot more.

In comes the Darkness, with its unforgiving assault on the lesser-than-mature ESRB ratings. Heads getting smashed, necks getting saws, hearts being devoured from corpses, necks getting removed, impalement, kamikaze demons...get the picture? The gunplay includes in-firefight executions, getting trigger-happy, and making pie-holes neck-deep. Check out the demo if any of this seems enticing.

I grant the demo "perfect", just like the F.E.A.R. demo. A demo should make you want to go buy the game immediately, right? The Darkness succeeds.
