The Darkness II was a wonderful surprise in 2012. The game’s story was equal to anything found in the Top Cow comic book series and Timothy Wynn’s score featured a few recurring themes that gave the game a sweeping, narrative feel. The game’s acting and soundtrack were what allowed such a wild, fantastical story to be a moving yarn not soon forgotten. Wynn has showed his ability to create moving stories with his sweeping scores before, but this game’s tight focus mixed with the character of the music brought the storytelling to an even higher level.
