Great game + Includes pre order weapons

CrazySteve88 | March 16, 2014 | See all CrazySteve88's reviews »

First off I just want to point out that you DO get access to the two exclusive pre order DLC weapons "Dark Talons" and "Skeletal Axe of Rending". So if you're wanting to collect all of the DLC for this game then Good News Everyone! you still can. If you didn't know it's currently impossible to buy these two weapons by themselves, you have to get the limited edition.

As for the game itself well... I could review it but chances are you already know how good it is.

As a PC port it's pretty good. Back when it first came out there were some complaints about the lack of PC options but this really isn't a big deal. Anti=aliasing was added in a newer patch and anything else you could force in your graphics control panel.

Despite the lack of options the game's nicely optimized. I had a GeForce 9800 GT 1GB which would play this game perfectly at 60FPS. I never had any issues but I've heard some people did. Chances are if you have a fast enough GPU with at least 1GB then you can play this just fine.

If you liked Darksiders then chances are you'd like the sequel. It's a lot more open with a LOT more content. It's also pretty long compared to the original. I recommend picking up the limited edition and maybe the season pass. Also if you don't have the original you might want to pick that up if it's on sale. Honestly I thought Darksiders 2 was more optimized then Darksiders.

Enjoy!

Good acrobatic combat with Death as your character

Darksiders II must be one of the craziest ideas in gaming ever, as you get to play death itself. It seems like a great answer to the God of War series - it's all about fighting, with your character, Death, being swift, nimble and athletic. You can equip yourself with a variety of weapons and armor (even more choices are possible after purchasing some DLCs) and jump, roll and smash around for some excellent acrobatic fighting scenes. And in this limited edition you are getting an extra expansion, titled Argul's Tomb. The game alone remains interesting for long hours of gaming, and then you can get even more from additional expansions and DLCs. Some are more interesting (storyline, quests) and some offer only new equipment, but you don't need them at this point, as this limited edition is good as it is.
