Bonus: Mike Patton

In the first Darkness, the eponymous entity gives Jackie his demonic powers was voiced by Mike Patton, the growly, snarly, vocally acrobatic frontman of Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, and more bands than you can shake a shadow tentacle at. Unfortunately, The Darkness didn’t say all that much over the course of the game—and what he did say wasn’t terribly interesting.

The Darkness II is a rare second chance: Patton has returned to voicing the creature. We only hope that this time around, the opportunity for greatness isn’t squandered, because it has the potential to be one of the more entertaining voice performances of the year.
