The Darkness - hands-on

Hands-on with this spring's most gruesome game

Your captor walks over to the wall, casually plugging a handheld drill into an electrical outlet while he curses your name and tells you exactly why you deserve this. Before you know it, the drill is being thrust into your head, bits of blood and flesh splattering outwards as the screen shakes violently. This is the world of The Darkness %26ndash; gritty, degenerate and malevolent. It%26rsquo;s a strikingly beautiful, disturbingly intense game, a first person shooter descent into the world of mob violence and a cursed superpower.
