If I am honest I have never played the first game however I loved this game! I shouldn't have though but It doesn't do anything new or exciting - but what it does, it does very, very well. There are no groundbreaking controller schemes, input methods (quick time events, for example) or gameplay ideas and usually this would cause me to ignore a game. Which is what I did. Until I got Darksiders for free. It took a while but I got hooked, finished it and immediately ordered this one. The first game, for me, played as a God of War clone: lots of enemies on screen, lots of hacking & slashing. And puzzle solving too. DS2, is a hybrid (in my eyes) of the Prince of Persia games (wall running), God of War (arena-like combat with tons of enemies big and small) and even a sprinkling of RPG's as you can level certain weapons, etc. Sadly a sequel is not likely due to the fact that THQ/Vigil have gone bust!
