'To me', it looks like a 'Left4Dead me too product' with bad cartoon/comic book style character/color additions.

What? It's a story-driven, single-player game where you play as a single character who has both guns and demonic tentacles. The co-op mode is just a bonus, likely tacked on because publishers demand that all games have co-op these days.

I can only confirm this. The Darkness (I) at least had really nothing with L4D in common, except both being first-person-view shooters...

This is unique, very dark and atmospheric story-driven single-player game with many cool moments and some great ideas (like the immortal end-boss without going into further details to spoil the scene).

Co-op? Not interested, this should be enjoyed as a pure single-player game.

I was just commenting that "to me" that is what it visually reminded me of when I first viewed the trailer. Nothing more than that.....

A PC demo? Not only that but one that releases at the same time as the console demos?

I'm impressed.
