Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks upon a quest to restore mankind, and redeem his brother's name.

The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are back for another battle against the demoniacal corruption. In a savage battle against evil, and the original formula, we will see if Death can redeem what War could not.

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 managed to surprise me, and a good portion of the gaming community, when it released in 2010 and ended up being pretty fantastic. It?s unique art style paired with a fusion of The Legend of Zelda and God of War, and a more mature you versus the legions of hell plot stunned a lot of...

While the last quarter of the game kind of drags a little bit, it smoothly integrates a number of different elements and genres (there's even a portion that plays like a third-person shooter, and it works!). I had a very good time with it, and I highly recommend it. My Rating: 8/10 - great.

Darksiders 2 gets a slightly lower score than the original, because it doesn't take much of an effort to surprise players. The gameplay mechanics are, in fact, all-too-familiar, while the narrative takes us on a relatively predictable path.

Stunning art direction helps set the right mood for a game where Death takes center stage, enough gameplay variety for all gamers, Jasper Kyd easily delivers one of the best video game soundtracks we've been privileged to in a while;
In terms of gameplay and story-telling there are no surprises whatsoever, a few weird gameplay changes might confuse some players, such as having a no block button, annoying performance issues, some may even break the game.

Play as one of the Four Horsemen. Lots of RPG elements to explore. Smooth and enjoyable combat. Large open game world. Runs parallel to the original game.

Great story to follow ? Role playing features
Poor PC port ? Lack of puzzle variety

Darksiders II The word "derivative" isn't especially useful when talking about video games. While everyone working in an artistic field draws something from those who came before, video games can seem especially unoriginal, owing to their habit of drawing from a common pool of gameplay mechanics,...

Nailing the perfect sequence of scythe combos and dodges during a fight.

The first pack of DLC for Darksiders II is here. Do you need even more loot and dungeons to crawl?

+ Final boss is cool, + More loot
Fighting the same enemies, Doesn't feel very unique, Most of the loot was forgettable

Despite these flaws, Darksiders II is an accomplished game that comes highly recommended. Combat is impressive and a large improvement on the first game, the art design is stunning and the orchestral score compliments the action brilliantly, but most importantly, it's a lot of fun to play.

THQ and Vigil Games have released two new DLC packs for Darksiders II which include Argul?s Tomb and Death Rides Pack. Darksiders II was one of the best sequels of 2012, and the new DLC content doesn't fail to deliver on making an already enjoyable game that much better.

Absolutely love this game. I got it for a friend of mine who's a huge fan of the series, and he's already on his third playthrough. There are a few glitches in the game itself, but nothing dramatic or hindering. They're actually kind of funny!

Absolutely thrilled with finally adding this one to my collection! It looks awesome, I just hate I had to wait so long to actually get this since I was unaware of the Collector's Edition when this one released.

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).

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'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.

Darksiders is still a tale of when fantasy meets theology and it still has gaming tropes that feel like they're stripped straight from other games, but this time around the different gameplay ideas come together with great harmony to create a gaming experience that is not only superior to its...

Fun combat, epic bosses, cool art styles, decent storyline, overall great gaming experience. A worthy sequel to Darksiders 1. Highly recommend this game! And please play Darksiders 1 first before Darksiders 2 to better understand the story.

I found this game to be highly enjoyable, not too easy but just challenging enough. I found it to be similar to Tomb Raider, a great mix of adventure and exploring so it is now one of my favourite games. I recommend it, especially for the decent price.
