Introduction:

The Darkness II is an awesome and yet short game. Trophy wise, the list is very solid and straightforward. Most of it is either single player or Vendettas mode related. Although this is consider an offline platinum title. All Vendettas trophies can be done either alone or cooperatively online. This means you can play Vendettas as a co-op campaign, or take on the Hit List. Keep in mind that certain Hit List are only available online, while others can be played offline. It's completely optional and every trophy in this game can be obtain without ever going online.


Walkthrough:

Step 1: New Game Thug Difficulty

Although, there's a trophy for completing the game on Don Difficulty, there's no need to play it from the start; you will need to play this game twice anyways. Begin a New Game on Thug difficulty instead. You'll receive more Essence towards upgrading all of Jackie's Darkness Powers, which will make your New Game+ Don difficulty playthrough even easier. Not to mention that this game is very, very short. It'll take you about an average of about 5-7 hours to beat the story. Just simply enjoy the story and play the game as you normally would. You'll unlock every story related trophy as you progress. There's really no need to worry about grinding out the kill or combat related trophies. Almost all of them will unlock naturally for you without even trying for them. As you play through the game you'll unlock more Darkness Powers, which will help you clean up the remaining combat related trophies you didn't unlock the 1st time through.

There are a small few trophies that you should be aware of though. These aren't consider missable, as anything you do happen to miss can be clean up in New Game+ after you completed the game on any difficulty. They are "One Man Army", "The Bird is the Word", "That's Why I'm the Boss", "Romantic", and "Carnie Kid".

The last thing you should keep in mind is the Relics. There are a total of 29 relics and they are collectable "Darkness" items scattered across the chapters. I suggest using our Relic Locations Guide to help you collect them all. Also, if you have the Limited Edition of the game, you’ll have access to a free DLC code. This special DLC will grant you access to a new Darkness Power on Jackie's Talent Tree called, Relic Hunter. Relic Hunter helps you locate Relics much easier if you're close to their locations, provided you have access to "The Darkness". Keep in mind though that some levels, you won't have access to the "The Darkness", so this ability won't work. Still, you can see how many Relics are on a certain level by pressing the button. The DLC will also grant you an extra 20% more Essence for every heart you eat.


Step 2: New Game+ Don Difficulty and Clean Up

After you've beaten the game for the first time, you'll unlock New Game+ which allows you to start any chapter while retaining all the Relics, Talents, and Essence from your last playthrough. However, your current save game will be deleted. This step will be both your New Game+ Don difficulty and clean up playthrough. You should be very familiar with the game now and should know what to expect. Of course, it may be boring going through the same story again, but you can skip the boring dialogue as well as some of the cut-scenes by simply pressing the button. This can speed things up for you.

Keep in mind to finish anything that you still haven't unlock or missed. Collect any Relics that you missed and complete all combat related trophies during this playthrough. Lastly, Jackie will have all his Darkness powers in the Talent Tress fully max out by the end of the game. At the end of this step, you'll have all campaign related trophies. For tips on completing Don Difficulty, please refer to its trophy description.


Step 3: Vendettas Thug Difficulty

This is the 3rd phase towards your platinum, so at the main menu screen go into "Vendettas". Vendettas are basically side missions of the main story, but with its own plot. You can play Vendettas alone or cooperatively online as one of four characters:
  • Inugami
  • Shoshanna
  • Jimmy Wilson
  • JP Dumond
Each character has their own specialized Darkness weapon and tactics. It doesn't matter which character you select to complete the Vendetta Campaign. After you've made a decision on the character you'll be playing as. Be sure to change the difficulty setting to Thug by pressing the button. You'll unlock most of the Vendetta trophies just by playing through the Vendetta Campaign. Keep in mind to attempt to fully upgrade the character that you're using. You might not fully acquire all the Talents for that one character the first time through, but you'll purchase most of their Talents naturally.


Step 4: Vendettas - Hit List Thug Difficulty

This is the final step towards your platinum. As mentioned above in Step 3, Vendettas are side missions from the main story with its own plot. They can be played alone or cooperatively online as one of four characters. However, there are certain Hit Lists that are only available online, while the others are offline. This time you'll want to go into "Vendettas" at the main menu screen and select "Hit List", which are standalone missions. While playing, be sure to use the other three characters that you haven't used yet and to finish acquiring all the talents for the one character that you first used.

Below is a complete list of the Hit Lists Missions you need to complete:
  1. Enter The Gauntlet
  2. All Clear
  3. Time To Take Out The Thrash
  4. We Interrupt this Program
  5. Storming
  6. Snatch And grab
Completing "Enter the Gauntlet" and "We Interrupt This Program" Hit List exclusive missions will reward you with their individual boss related trophy. Once you've finished your 6th and final Hit List mission you'll unlock the "You've Made My Hit List" trophy, which should be your last trophy for your platinum if you've been following our guide.

Conquered the Darkness
Unlock all trophies

You're the master of "The Darkness".


Free the Mind
Finish the game on any difficulty

See "Don of Darkness" for more information.


Don of Darkness
Finish the game on Don difficulty

See "At Home in the Dark" for more information.


At Home in the Dark
Finish all chapters in New Game+ on any difficulty

Don is the hardest difficulty setting in the game and is available from the very start of the game. I recommend playing through the game on Thug difficulty first before playing on Don difficulty. After you've beaten the game on any difficulty setting, you'll unlock New Game+. New Game+ allows you to start any chapter while retaining all the Relics, Talents, and Essence from your last playthrough. This will make your Don difficulty playthrough much easier since you've already been through the game and are very familiar with it. In Don difficulty, enemies will inflect more damage towards you, so take your time and eat the hearts of your victims. There will be a few hard parts you'll encounter, but nothing compared to other standard shoots. Besides, there are a lot of checkpoints and auto saves. Below are some basic Darkness 2 tips.

Tips:
  • Health: Always eat hearts to restore your health and to earn extra Essence. Holding will eat a dead enemies heart. Remember, hearts are only edible for about 1 minute worth of time, so when given the chance, move in quickly towards the dead and eat them before they vanish. You'll know when hearts are edible when they glow purple and can be seen through an enemy's skin.
  • The Darkness: Jackie's Darkness powers are his greatest weapons and they can be used to kill enemies, but can take some time to cool down after being used. Use "The Darkness" with caution during certain situations.
  • Essence: After you kill an enemy, you'll receive Essence. Essences are used to purchase Talents from the Talents Shrines. When you come across a Talent Shrine, you can spend your Essence to upgrade or add to Jackie's Darkness powers, such as new attacks or increased ammo capacity.
  • Lights: Jackie's powers depend on the darkness. The lights throughout the game can weaken and temporally render Jackie's powers useless. Some enemies carry light cannons and flash bangs, and certain areas will have lights that can severely limit Jackie's mobility. To get past these obstacles, shoot out the lights and stick to the shadows of the darkness. The enemies with the light cannons can be either killed or you can simply shoot out their light. Remember, some lights in certain areas cannot be shot out, while others can have their power source destroyed.
  • Vulnerability & Executions: With "The Darkness," Jackie has the ability to tell when an enemy is vulnerable to attack. When an enemy's heart and blood vessels are glowing, then that enemy is vulnerable, due to being stunned or simply being unaware of your presence. Once this happens, you can grab the stunned enemies with the Demon Arms just by pressing the button. While grabbed, you can do many things towards them such as throwing them at their allies, hit them with a melee or execute them. Executions are instant kills with the press of the button and then pressing any appropriate face button before time runs up to execute the grabbed enemy. At the start, you'll only have one execution, but will unlock Power, Hitman, and Demonic Executions naturally. Remember, executions can benefit in your favor such as lowering the cooldown time for other Darkness powers. Lastly, take advantage of being invulnerable during the executions. You can't take any damage when executing an enemy and it's usually best to eat the heart when executing.
  • Objects: Although you can grab enemies with the Demon Arms, they can also grab objects such as debris and turn them into a projectile or shield. Objects that can be grabbed have a purple glow on them, so keep an eye out for these objects and use them to your benefits. Some objects you’ll need to break before you can use them as an object. When going into a gun fight battle, using a shield is a good idea. You can make yourself a shield by ripping a car's door off and use it as cover while firing through the window. Not only that, but throwing a car's door is a great tactic as well and is capable of decapitating unprotected enemies. Other objects throughout the levels are propane tanks, pool sticks (javelins) and car engines. Remember, that throwing objects can instant kill enemies as well as save ammo.
  • Weapons and Dual Wielding: Like every shooting game, there are weapons that you can pick up throughout the game. It really doesn't matter which weapons you use to kill the enemies you face. They all get the job done, but it's always best to carry at least one or two automatic weapons on you. In addition, you can now dual wield weapons, but dual wielding isn't accurate and consumes the most ammunition. They're also not meant for long range combat.
  • The Darkling: The Darkling is an AI partner that is also an interactive object to some degree. He'll help you out sometimes along the way, but the interesting thing about him is that you can grab him and then throw him on to an enemy. This will automatically stun that enemy and sometimes the Darkling will kill the enemy you threw him onto. Some sections in the game will enable you to play as the Darkling. Just avoid the light at all cost while playing as him.

Additionally:
On Chapter 16 - "Homecoming", you'll lose "The Darkness" within you. This is actually a difficult level in the game since you can't eat hearts when you regain control over Jackie. While playing through this section, simply take your time and kill the enemies one by one while taking cover. You'll regain health over time, but if you take too much damage you'll lose a certain portion of your health gauge which is limited to 4/4. If you lose 50% you'll be at 2/4 health, which might be a problem during the boss fight at the end of Chapter 16. Remember that you can restart the level over again by pressing and selecting to restart the level.
On Chapter 18 - "Revelations", there’s an option to stay with Jenny by pressing the button or to reject the Asylum by pressing the button. Select to reject the asylum. This way, you go to hell where the real Jenny is and will continue with the story. Selecting stay with Jenny is actually not beating the game and will not give you any difficulty trophies or even New Game+. Instead it just takes you to the credits and will return you to the main menu screen, so don't bother selecting it. You will unlock the trophies after you press the button to kiss Jenny


One Man Army
Kill 25 enemies while being dragged from the restaurant, without dying or restarting checkpoint

This trophy is only available on Chapter 1 - "Dinner Out".

If you're playing on Thug difficulty, then this will most likely be the first trophy that you unlock at the start of the game. You'll have to kill 25 enemies while being dragged from the restaurant, without dying or restarting the checkpoint. After shortly entering the restaurant your friend, Vinnie, will lead you to two Italian ladies. A Mob will then blast a hole through the wall behind the two ladies, which severely damage your leg. Vinnie will then try to drag you out of the restaurant and into the alley, while you cover him with the pistol he handed to you.

There are roughly 30 enemies that you can kill, but you won’t be able to kill them all. You only need to kill 25 of them as quickly as possible without dying or restarting the checkpoint. The greatest thing about doing this on Thug difficulty is that the enemies will die in 1-2 shoots. This is fairly easy and I suggest that you kill over 19 enemies while you have the one pistol in hand because Vinnie will eventually hand you another pistol to dual wield. This means that you won’t be as accurate as you were with the one pistol in hand, but will still have enough time to kill the last remaining 6-10 enemies before Vinnie gets you to safety. If you fail you can either press the button to restart the level or checkpoint, but you can only restart the checkpoint when the twins are killed. Once you gotten the dual wielding pistols you cannot restart the checkpoint.

The Bird is the Word
Avoid being run over in the parking garage

This trophy is only available on Chapter 8 -"Home Invasion".

While you're progressing through the parking garage you'll eventually encounter a car in slow motion that will attempt to run you over. Simply make sure you have two automatic weapons such as dual wielding two HK UMPs at once and quickly shoot at the car. If you destroy the car quickly enough, you'll flick them off with your middle finger as the car flips over above you to explode to their deaths. I also recommend that you have the Gun Channeling ability with you by this point in the game, which cost 1000 Essence. The Gun Channeling ability makes your shoots more powerful and doesn't consume bullets. Simply press the button to use the ability.



Carnie Kid
Earn a score of over 1000 in each of the carnival games

This is only available on Chapter 13 - "Fun and Games".

During the carnival level, you'll encounter flashbacks with Jenny of you trying to win her the biggest prize. For the trophy, you must simply achieve a score of over 1,000 in each of the carnival games. There are only two games for you to play and they're both story related games. If you fail to get 1,000, you can simply press the button and then restart your checkpoint. Below are the carnival games as well as some tips to getting a 1,000 score or higher:

Carnival Game 1 - Shooting Gallery (aka Duck Hunt):
This is an old school Duck Hunt game where the goal is to shoot as many ducks as possible for the highest score within the time limit of 30 seconds. There are a total of three duck colors each worth the following points:
  • Blue Duck: 35 Points
  • Red Duck: 50 Points
  • Yellow Duck: 100 Points
Shooting Gallery Tips:
Simply concentrate on the ducks in the middle and the top. The yellow ducks at the very top will give you 100 points, but are very fast. Still they are easy to shoot and the shotgun still has spread damage to hit it. Continue shooting the middle red ducks while you wait for the yellow ducks to spawn at the top. You can miss a couple of shots and still achieve the 1000 score. Also try to avoid shooting the clouds and grass as they shield the ducks from harm. If you fail, simply press and the "Restart Checkpoint".

Carnival Game 2 - Saloon (aka West Shooter Gallery):
This is a western style shooting gallery where the objective is to shoot as many wanted man as possible within the time limit of about 55 seconds. The wanted cowboys are worth about 75 and 150 points per a shot. Avoid shooting the Sheriffs or the bartenders that spawn.

Shooting Gallery Tips:
Simply make sure to not shoot the Sheriff or the bartender that spawns. Shoot all wanted man that has a gun in their hand. Also be sure to destroy the gallery's furniture for about 250 easy points. The furniture consists of bottles, picture frames, horns, and buffalo horns. If you fail, simply press and the "Restart Checkpoint".



Impish Delight
Kill 15 enemies while playing as the Darkling

The first time you play as the Darkling is during Chapter 6 - "Strong Silent Type", but you'll only have a chance to kill 3 enemies. The second and last chapter that you get to play as the Darkling is during Chapter 15 - "Rat in A Maze". In Chapter 15, you'll get to kill well over 15 enemies (17 total that you can kill) for the trophy to unlock.

While playing as the Darkling, simply press the button to execute enemies or you can use the standard melee attacks by pressing the button. Keep in mind though that the Darkling cannot survive in the light, so avoid it. If an enemy is in the light, ignore him as you won't be able to kill them. It's also worth mentioning that when you kill someone, your health will automatically restore if you're hurt.


Executioner
Kill 50 enemies with Executions while playing as Jackie

With "The Darkness", Jackie has the ability to tell when an enemy is vulnerable to attack. When an enemy's heart and blood vessels are glowing, then that enemy is vulnerable, due to being stunned or simply being unaware of your presence. Once this happens, you can grab the stunned enemies with the Demon Arms just by pressing the button. When grabbed, you can do many things towards them such as executing them. Executions are instant kills with the press of the button and then pressing any appropriate face button of , , or before time runs up to execute the grabbed enemy.

At the start, you'll only have one execution, but will unlock Power, Hitman, and Demonic Executions naturally. There's no need to grind the kills as you'll unlock it naturally and all kills carry over from previous playthroughs. Remember, executions can benefit in your favor such as lowering the cooldown time for your other Darkness powers. Lastly, take advantage of being invulnerable during the executions. You can't take any damage while executing an enemy and it's usually best to eat the heart when executing.


The Swarm King
Kill 50 enemies who are swarmed while playing as Jackie

The Swarm is a new Darkness power that allows Jackie's Demon Arms to spit a green cloud of flesh eating insects engulfed in the energy of "The Darkness". First, you must purchase the Swarm ability at a Talent Shrine for 1,000 Essence.

Once you have the ability, simply press the button to use it. It'll cling to enemies and damage them overtime, immobilizing them briefly. Once you've used the ability against enemies, kill them however you wish. You'll know you gotten the Swarm kill when "In the Cloud" pops up on the screen. Upgrading the power can allow the Swarm ability to hit more targets longer and increase damage overtime. There's no need to grind the kills as you'll unlock it naturally and all kills carry over from previous playthroughs. In addition, this move can harm and inflict massive damage towards bosses, especially once it's fully upgraded.


The Old Gibber
Kill 100 enemies with Gun Channeling while playing as Jackie

Gun Channeling is another new Darkness power that enables Jackie to channel "The Darkness" power into his own weapons. Thus, increasing their power and overall damage output, but first, you must purchase the Gun Channeling ability from a Talent Shrine for 1,000 Essence.

Once you have the ability, simply press the button to use it. While using the ability, you'll have infinite ammo for a limited time. You'll know you performed a Gun Channeling kill when "Gun Channel Kill" pops up on the screen. Upgrading the power can allow the Gun Channeling ability to auto hit targets while dual wielding, increase damage, and allow Jackie to see and shoot through walls or other things. There's no need to grind the kills as you'll unlock it naturally and all kills carry over from previous playthroughs.


Suck it Up
Kill 50 enemies with Black Hole while playing as Jackie

The Black Hole is the final Darkness power that enables Jackie to create a black hole, but first you must purchase the Black Hole ability at a Talent Shrine for 1,000 Essence.

Once you have the ability, black holes will occasionally become a dropped item from defeated enemies in place their hearts. Once a fallen enemy drops a black hole, simply press and hold the button to pick it up. You can then throw it like a hand grenades at enemies by pressing the button, creating a black hole. Enemies sucked or affected by this will be automatically killed. You'll know you gotten the Black Hole kill when "Black Hole Kill" pops up on the screen. There's no need to grind the kills as you'll unlock it naturally and all kills carry over from previous playthroughs, but be careful when you pick up a black hole. While holding a black hole, if you walk through lighted up areas, you will drop the black hole, making it a waste when you could have carried it over towards a group of enemies.


Cut and Run
Kill 50 enemies with the Demon Arm Slash attack

The Demon Arm is a power from "The Darkness" that enables Jackie to spawn tentacles from his back. With them he can impale, grab, remove debris and destroy lights. The + stick will Demon Arm Slash/Melee at enemies. Doing so will kill enemies, although it'll take more than one slash to kill them. There's no need to grind the kills as you'll unlock it naturally and all kills carry over from previous playthroughs.

Ready for the Big Leagues
Kill 50 enemies with thrown objects

Although you can grab enemies with the Demon Arms, they can also grab objects such as debris and turn them into a projectile or shield. Objects that can be grabbed have a purple glow on them, so keep an eye Fout for these objects and use them to your benefits. Some objects you’ll need to break before you can use them as an object. To grab an object, simply press the button and then tab the button again to throw it. Other objects throughout the levels are propane tanks, fans, pool sticks (javelins) and car engines. Remember, that throwing objects can instant kill enemies as well as save ammo. There's no need to grind the kills as you'll unlock it naturally and all kills carry over from previous playthroughs.


Dark Akimbo
Kill 100 enemies while dual wielding 2 different guns as Jackie

Dual wield weapons are when you are holding weapons in each hand. To dual wield you'll need to press the button. There are only two types of dual wielding weapons which are the pistol/revolver and SMGs. To use the left gun simply press the button and press the button to use the right gun. For the trophy, however, you'll need to use two different types of guns. For example, a pistol and HK UMP will get you the trophy. Dual wielding two HK UMPs will not give you the trophy as they are the same weapons. In addition, you're able to attack enemies with the Demon Arms power at the same time while dual wielding. There's no need to grind the kills as you'll unlock it naturally and all kills carry over from previous playthroughs.


That's Why I'm the Boss
Impress Dolfo in two different ways

This is only available on Chapters 3, 5 and 12. Dolfo is one of your loyal henchmen and can be found on the first floor of the balcony of your mansion. It really don't matter in which chapter you choose to start this trophy at, but if you're playing through the game for the first time and are doing his challenges along the way, you'll unlock the trophy during Chapter 5 as long as you did and completed his first challenge in Chapter 3. If you do miss them during any of the chapters, you can always use chapter select to go back for them. Or you can wait until Chapter 12 where you can do both of the challenges at the same time just by pressing either the or buttons when interacting with him.

Dolfo has a total of two different challenges that can impress him. When you're facing Dolfo to interact with him, simply press the button to select the challenge. You can impress him by clearing his challenges with the best score you most achieve. Below is a listing of his challenges and the requirements to clearing them as well as tips:

Challenge 1: Enjoy some fine beverages with Dolfo
For this challenge, you're given a pistol with infinite ammo. Simply shoot all 13 bottles on the ledge of the balcony as quickly as possible. You must do this within 10 seconds in order to impress Dolfo. If you fail, simply talk to him again and retry by pressing the button.

Challenge Tips:
Press the button and go into "Options". Once in "Options", select "Display" and adjust your brightness all the way towards the right. This will help make the bottles easier for you to see and line up your shoots. You can also adjust your sensitivity to better your aim. When shooting the bottles, you'll want to shoot them from left to right in perfect order without missing and you should auto reload only once, then finish shooting the remaining bottles without missing. If you missed a single shoot, chances are you failed the 10 second mark.

Additionally, you can manually reload your gun instead of automatically reloading. Manually reloading will not cause you to lose your aim, unlike how auto reloading will sightly cause you to lose your aim. With manually reloading you can miss about 4 shots and still make the 10 second mark.

Challenge 2: Teach the pigeons a lesson with Dolfo
For this challenge, you're given a shotgun with infinite ammo. This time you'll have to kill 20 out of 24 pigeons within the time limit of 1 minute and 30 seconds. You'll have to run around and carefully look on the ledges of the balcony to find and kill the pigeons. You must also go down the stairs to killing the remaining pigeons as well. If you fail, simply talk to him again and retry by pressing the button.

Challenge Tips:
Very simple, just run towards the pigeon while shooting at them with hip fire. When they fly off, don't give up. Surprisingly, the shotgun has some range to it and is capable of killing the pigeons that took off far away from your range of sight. Once you've killed a group of 3 pigeons, reload your shotgun before heading towards the next group. Be sure to try and kill all 3 pigeons when given the chance. Don’t walk around looking for too long or you'll waste your time limit of 1 minute and 30 seconds.


Auto reload version:


Manual reload version:


Karma's a Bitch
Kill a shielded enemy with his own shield

Throughout the chapters you'll encounter enemies with shields. These are Darkness Demonic shields wielded by members of The Brotherhood. You'll first have a chance at this trophy on Chapter 8 - "Home Invasion" when you focus on a shielded enemy killing one of your men on the balcony. First, you must shoot the shield until the Demonic energy vanishes off it. Then grab it with the Demon Arm by pressing the button. Last thing left is to weaken the enemy until they're vulnerable to be killed and throw the shield at him by simply tapping the button. You'll most likely unlock this naturally.



2 guys 1 Pole
Kill 2 enemies with one javelin

A javelin is any pole that can be thrown at enemies. There are multiple places in the game where you can attempt this trophy. The very first chance though is during Chapter 2 - "Payback" after you killed the guy in the barbershop and grabbed the pistol. Kill the guy who opens the door and search for a pole on the ground or toll meter. After picking one up, go to the right and try to line the two enemies up together. Using the button to aim the pistol can help you line them up more easily. Eventually they'll line up, so throw the pole at them both by tapping the button and if you nailed them. Your trophy will unlock moments later.


Another place is Chapter 4 - "Q and A". Same thing, just grab a pole and kill the two guys at the back pole table.


One last and final place to get the trophy on is Chapter 16 - "Homecoming", right after the ballroom fight. Grab a pole in the ballroom and take it with you. In the other room, go up the stairs and look down the hole on the ground. There will be three enemies down below. Throw the pole at two of them as they're already lined up and won't even notice your presence.


Versatile Killer
Kill enemies in 5 different ways within 30 seconds

Not as challenging as it sounds. In fact, you'll get this without even trying for it if you're killing in different ways. There are plenty of ways to kill enemies and you just need to do 5 of them within 30 seconds. Below, I'll list a few ways that can kill an enemy:
  1. Execution - with any face button of , , , or
  2. Headshot - requires a firearm such as a pistol
  3. Weapon - normal weapon kill (no headshots again though aim for body or lower)
  4. Impaled - thrown pole kill against an enemy
  5. Sliced - thrown object such as a car's door against an enemy
  6. Demon Arm Slash/Melee - Slash an enemy in half
  7. Explosives - Propane tanks or red barrels to explode an enemy
  8. Black Hole - A Black Hole thrown like a grenade
  9. Gun Channeling - Darkness bullets with
  10. Swarm - Darkness insects with

Remember that these kills can be done in any order. You just have to be quick and there has to be least 5-10 enemies around for you to get it. Still, chances are you'll unlock it naturally.

Skeet Shoot
Throw an enemy into the air and kill him with gunfire before he lands

This is a very simple trophy, and can be done anywhere. Just grab an enemy with the button and throw him into the air high above you. Now kill him with gun shots before he lands on the ground. The easiest and quickest way to get the trophy is to wait until you have the Gun Channeling power and an automatic weapon. Throw an enemy into the air and then quickly press the button and the guy will get killed in one shot.

Talent Show

Throughout the game, you'll come across Talent Shrines. To upgrade your powers you'll need to use Essence. After you kill an enemy, you'll receive Essence. Essences are used to purchase Talents from the Talents Shrines.

Other ways to gain Essence is by eating hearts or collecting Relics. In order to fully max of out all of Jackie's Talent Trees you'll need a total of 36,800 Essence.

Relic Hunter
Find all 29 Relics in the single player campaign

Relics are items of "The Darkness" that are scattered throughout the single player campaign. There are a total of 29 Relics that you must collect and find. Each relic you collect will reward you with 300 Essence. If you have the Limited Edition of the game, you can purchase the DLC Talent power called, Relic Hunter. Relic Hunter will enable you to locate certain relics that you're close too, but won't work when you don't have your Demon Arms activate or while playing as the Darkling. Still, they're easy to find and are well worth the effort to collect them all. Each Relic that you discover has a very long history behind them that are all read to you by Johnny Powell. Refer to our Relic Locations Guide as well the video guide to find them all. Also, you must reach an automatic save point for the relic to save in your inventory forever. If you get killed when you’ve collected one of the relics and didn’t reach a save checkpoint, you’ll have to recollect that relic over again.

This guide looks good, I'm on the fence on whether to rent or buy the game.

So does this game have an online pass, and does the online or coop make the Platinum significantly easier? If it's easier/better online then I may buy if, if not then I'll probably borrow it and do it all offline.

Thanks.
