If you're itching for some quality FPS action, you might be interested to hear that the brutal yet highly entertaining The Darkness 2 is currently completely free. All you need to do is head on over to the Humble Bundle website and go through the 'purchasing' process, after which The Darkness 2 will be yours to keep. This promotion will only last for another ~37 hours, or until supplies last, so I would recommend you go and grab it as soon as you can!

As for whether it's actually worth the trouble, I would say the answer is a resounding yes. It's a little bit on the short side, but the completely over-the-top violence is so well done it's simply a joy to play. It's also important to mention that The Darkness 2 has been made by Digital Extremes, the folks behind the immensely popular Warframe, which should tell you enough about the how good the combat truly is.

And finally, allow me to send you off with the original launch trailer. It doesn't feature any actual gameplay, but it'll give you a pretty darn good idea of the tone The Darkness 2 is going for and why I consider it to be well worth playing. Enjoy!
