Darkness II Demo

The Darkness II Website has word that the playable demo for 2K Games' shooter sequel is now available on Steam and PlayStation 3 after previously only being available on Xbox LIVE (thanks Gamer's Hell). Here's the deal:

Embrace the Darkness and download the demo now! In this specially-constructed demo, experience the gripping and brutal journey of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of a ruthless force of chaos and destruction known as The Darkness. Master the power of Quad-Wielding as you slash, grab and throw with your Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons.

Shitty FOV, hand-holding progression and consolitis aside, I found the demo pretty fun. It's also decent length as far as demo's go these days.
Using the Darkness is pretty awesome at times, even though the ragdolls of the enemies seem a little feathery.
Also, I love the art style and it runs smooth as silk on my old-ish machine.

There is something a little "off" about the gunlpay, though. It's got the same lack of punch that COD4/MW/etc seem to have. The guns look and sound meaty, but they just don't have that ooomph you're looking for in a shooter.
For a good example of gun punchiness, the original FEAR is where it's at in my books.
