I played and I must say that I'm a bit disappointed. The only things I liked about the gameplay were the executions. Other than that, I miss being able to turn the Darkness on and off and using Creeping Dark to take out enemies stealthly. The gameplay is too linear now.
I also did not like the graphics. I'm not against cel-shaded graphics, but I think it was done poorly for this game. The previous installment looked better, in my opinion.
The voice-acting is another thing I did not like. It's a shame they changed Jackie's voice actor; I thought the previous voice actor did a perfect job.
I haven't played the multiplayer much, but so far I'm unimpressed. Seems like an attempt at L 4 D
with Darkness powers, but not as good as that might sound.
