Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in a weaving tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother War, the horseman who was blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Featuring a dramatically larger world, full weapon and armor upgrade systems as well as bigger and more challenging dungeons and vast array of new enemies and bosses, Darksiders II strives to improve on every aspect of the original hit.
Just as good as the 1st!
This review is from: Darksiders II: Limited Edition for Xbox 360
Pros: Story, tricky puzzles, fast paced combat, what more do you need! I was a huge fan of the original and this one has not disappointed. Death comes with his own personality, and is very humorous at times while being extremely deadly. I liked hitting hard with War but this fast past quicker style with Death suites the game better IMO. Story is nice and long, customization has really been a blessing vs the first.
Cons: I've experienced just a few glitches, like a quest character disappearing, or death not wanting to grab the wall i'm running at every now and then. not enough to take an egg off, but just a few hiccups. Also no more souls to absorb and give to vulgrim, I enjoyed that about the last one. Also, when your looting gold from enemies it doesn't auto loot unless your standing right on the gold, kind of annoying it should just zoom to you.
Other Thoughts: I'm a big fan of the apocolyptic story, while having revelation/biblical themes throughout the game. This series is a gold. If you are unsure of this game buy the original first(you can get it super cheap or even play the demo). You don't need to have played the first to play this one, but the story background helps.
