So much squandered potentialLorddyran | Nov. 28, 2014 | See all Lorddyran's reviews »
I quite liked the original Darksiders, but it was very awkward; it tried to cram a lot of things into a small space and it came out with a good game that didn't exactly know what it wanted to be but still had some charm.
Darksiders II took a look at the last game and said "What this needs is even more crap crammed in".
If you've ever watched a movie and just known it was focus-tested into a highly-polished, joyless state, you'll know the feeling this game will give you. Individual parts are quite, quite good; the ingredients are top-notch, and some of them go together well; and the idea as a whole looks and sounds like it should be amazing. However, by the time you've spent a few minutes with it, you find yourself feeling empty and disappointed.
one of my all time faves..bluedragon77 | Oct. 26, 2014 | See all bluedragon77's reviews »
I loved this game fro beginning to end.. They don't really make games like this anymore.. Epic, Really long quest, plus tons of side quests, great graphics and art style. But the story is what kept me interested the most. I wanted to see what happened until the very end.. And the soundtrack is up there with some of the best for me.. I can't really think of any flaws except sometimes it is unclear where you have to go or what you have to do, But go and buy this game especially if it is on sale..

the game improves a lot from the first. It is open world, and more of an RPG.
The game does feel like a port as it is best played on a controller. There are not many graphics controls, but that doesn't bother me that much.
The game play is really good combo-ing moves together, but the game never got very hard. There is a metroidvania fell to the game as there are places you can't go unless you have a certain item.
Overall, I had a really good time with the game.
Consolitis in its most basic formSolSys00 | Aug. 13, 2014 | See all SolSys00's reviews »
While being a more true open-world and rpg game then its predecessor, this chapter in the series still manages to fail by being a crappy console port. You don't have to play more then the first few minutes to spot the bad designs (which probably feel at home on consoles).
Among the most obvious would be the Main-Menu (can't get to it unless you start a game), annoying camera movements, uncomfortable controls and lack of more in-depth graphics/settings options in general.
As a whole, this series just proved to be a disappointment for me, but if you still really want to play this game then do so with a controller - or better yet on a console (that way, at least things will make more sense and less awful).
Better than #1lajvjjajajaaaa | July 31, 2014 | See all lajvjjajajaaaa's reviews »
It's better than the first Darksiders in all ways for me. In here you are Death and have new weapons, maps, mechanics and some styles of play. It have more open world feeling than fist one. This time you mission is to save war as you fight with the gods. It plays much smoother, the graphics are much better and the sounds are too amazing. Some RPG elements are in here but don't really infect the game. Amazing number of dungeons to explore. Death have much better personality than War. There are more weapons and armors. Some of the DLCs are useless, but I'll say to try them anyway.
