This game’s story starts with portraying Jackie Estacado as the protagonist who is the boss of a Mafia Family,he is also the host/wielder of “The Darkness”. The darkness is an evil entity which aims to take over the universe and is slowly eating away its hosts sanity and ability to control himself.This darkness makes Jackie an invincible force in a fight and he is literally resistant to death.
Previously,most mafia families became wary of Jackie’s powers and as to get him pinned down and to gain an upperhand took Jenny(Jackie’s Love) hostage and ultimately killed her in front of Jackie,Jenny was Jackie’s only reason to live and she was the only thing keeping him sane but soon after this event Jackie ravaged almost all responsible and took a huge burden on him(He blamed himself for her death). finally after all this Jackie was able to press down “The Darkness” keeping it locked inside him and not losing control,but as we will see things are not going to go so smoothly forever.
