Remember back in 1996 when Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails fame did the music for Quake? His music in the launch trailer for The Darkness II sounds pretty much just like that.
I don't think it's that Trent Reznor hasn't grown significantly as an artist in the past 16 years. Knowing Reznor is a big-time gamer, I just figure this is the sort of song he hears in his head whenever he's kicking virtual ass, and when someone needs a video game theme it just naturally sounds like this.
That, or Trent Reznor hasn't grown significantly as an artist in the past 16 years.
But hey, how about that Darkness II CG? Isn't Jackie's former love interest's hair amazing?
