With scythe in hand, Darksiders II slices apart the soul of the original by adding a little more of everything. Good or bad, Darksiders II has become some sort of hybrid action game with borrowed concepts from a variety of popular games.

improved graphics with more diversity, smooth gameplay - plays like butter, combat retains is simple, fun and rewarding, if you're into it, lots of loot, loot, loot, hybrid style gameplay has something for everyone
a muscle bound version of death, pfft, say what!, the story, characters and world isn't overly interesting, navigating is often dull and tedious, still a painted up, copy-of-a-copy, lacks a decisive direction

Darksiders II was not initially on my radar, and I got off the primary quest early in the game and attempted to defeat a boss that I wasn?t capable of beating at that point and was ready to shelve the title out of pure frustration.

Diverse gameplay, deep weapon system, diverse gameplay experience
Steep learning curve

As expected, each dungeon requires that you puzzle out how to get from one point to the next. At first, this involves scaling walls, throwing the naturally occurring bombs you stumble upon, and pulling a few levers.

Fluid, colorful action that evolves over time, Clever, progressively more challenging environmental puzzles, Allure of new, cool loot pushes you onward, Expansive adventure, with lots of dungeons to explore, Great audiovisual presentation sets the right apocalyptic tone.
Performance issues and execution foibles, Disappointing bosses, especially the final boss.

Like any good sequel Darksiders II builds and expands upon the original in every single way.

Beautiful, vibrant world; wide variety of weapons; lots of loot; variety of enemies to battle; intriguing story; consistently good voice acting; tight, responsive controls.
Sometimes aggravating boss fights; overly simple platforming; one incredibly frustrating level late in the game; camera can be somewhat problematic.

Darksiders II has the same visual style set in the first game, but takes the player into a much more vast and interesting set of locations. These areas are as different as the lush greenery of thick forests to vast open deserts to frozen fjords and lava-filled caverns.

With the original Darksiders being something of an office favourite here at Click, the arrival of its sequel was something that we?ve been looking forward to for quite some time. Following Death , one of the Four Horsemen and brother to the last game?s protagonist War, Darksiders II aims to take an...

Drawing inspiration from the story of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the first Darksiders title, from 2010, placed the player in the role of the tenacious roughrider War and displayed an assortment of gameplay styles that ranged from heavy, muscular hack-and-slashing reminiscent of Devil May...

Darksiders II follows the story of the previous title as players assume the role of the horseman Death trying to clear his brother War's name. In the first Darksiders War is blamed with prematurely starting the apocalypse and wiping out all of humanity.

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.

The original Darksiders was a fun romp, though for those well acquainted with the action RPG genre, most will agree that it didn?t exactly break new ground gameplay-wise. Compared to its predecessor, Darksiders 2 is a much more ambitious experience that goes beyond a mere improvement.

Grafics have made huge progress compared to Darksiders 1. Music is great also. Story is ok but with little links to the predecessor. You' ll play the horseman Death instead of War. Fighting system and controlls are much better now with RPG like weapon upgrades and looting available now.

Easy To Learn, Graphics, Great Sound

Boring. Put simply, this game is boring. The game is often compared to god of war, but i actually got a kick out of those games. This game reminds me much more of Soul Reaver. Although, at least i enjoyed Soul Reaver.

This one certainly isn't for everyone, but I've played it more than any other game. Gorgeous art style, great voice acting, amazing combat, compelling upgrades, menacing enemies and tight controls in a massive environment that is fun to explore for its own sake.

I've been waiting for months for this game and I am so happy it's finally out. This game has gone above and beyond my expectations. Really hope there's a third one.

This game builds up on everything that made the first one good, largely due to the RPG elements implemented (loot system, customizable gear/weapons, skill trees, big maps with plenty of side quests). As a result, it is less linear and it encourages exploration a little bit more.

In the followup to Darksiders 1 where the user played as War, this time, you play as Death. Trying to save his brother after being condemned by the Charred Council as a traitor. This is good idea to get the ball rolling but we don't actually see what happens to War, where he is or a little cutscene...

Good storyline, good ideas
Too many things have changed, the simplicity of the puzzles

Good game fun to play and pass the time. However every part of the game is stolen from a different game. For example the platforming is obviously from prince of persia the combat system is god of war and the list goes on. But still these are good games so it it should be good?
