The Darkness 2, sequel to the cult-hit, will be available in the US and Canada on October 4th, with a global release coming on October 7th. I never played the original Darkness but I saw this game back at PAX East and was impressed by the game's surprisingly intuitive Quad-Wielding system, which lets players quickly switch back and forth between traditional weapons and your Darkness powers. Since the trailer won't give you much of a feel for the game, there are also a couple of screens here to help properly set the tone.

I picked up the original Darkness in the bargain bin a couple months back, for about 4 quid. I couldn't really get into it. Is it worth a another shot? I mean it did seem like a decent game, I just didn't take to it.
