After finishing Darksiders I, I went with Death on his adventure. (Spoilers free). It evolved atonishingly well, specially the puzzles. Also, the maps are bigger. The combat system is pretty much the same, but Death moves faster. It kind of reminded me less of GOW games than the first one, maybe because of this. Another thing to mention is that this game has a TON of DLC content, and most of them are worth the money, so if you're hungry for more, there's more!
A great follow up to the first gamegoro3d | June 14, 2015 | See all goro3d's reviews »
This is a great follow up to the first game and has gotten better with more weapons, armor, skills/spells and more and even a horse to ride to getting to other place quickly :)! Much like the first game things get tougher as you progress but still a great game and worth getting mainly while it's on sale. Some dlc's are useful some aren't but whatever you want lots of dlc's to choose from I rate this a 99/100. Worth getting :) I'm not saying much cause I don't wanna spoil what people wanna find from their own adventure so with that enjoy DARKSIDERS 2 :)!

Darksiders II is the tightest controlling hack and slasher I've played in a while. The combo system I'd great, the weapons and skills stay fresh, the dodging and blocking are implemented well and respond perfectly. The enemies are varied and look awesome, and the bosses have distinct and interesting personalities, as well as unique strategies to beat them. It basically plays like a mix of Devil May Cry and Zelda, with a bit of Dark Souls on some tougher bosses. The world is dark, yet has color and personality to it, distinct blues and greens highlight certain areas and some structures look absolutely awesome. It's a good thing it's so nice to look at, because one downfall is that you'll be backtracking a lot, and Twilight Princess-ing on your horse from area to area. It's a fantastic game, and the biggest shortcomings amount to minor irritants at worst. So yeah, it's good.

While many believe that Darksiders 2 is a sequel to the first title, it's not. Its an "interquel" (the actions of D1 and D2 happen in parallel). Death, the eldest & most powerful of the Four Horsemen, seeks to clear the name of his brother, War (the protagonist of the first instalment). It's still an action RPG game, but Death has different weapons, different abilities and different realms to explore. The storyline is quite interesting, taking Death through many realms, dungeons and side-dungeons. There's a main quite-linear storyline, and a lot of side-quests. One major improvement in the game is that you can "save" the progress you make in a dungeon, so that if you leave the dungeon, when you come back, you'll pick up the action exactly where you left. There's again, a lot of weapons to upgrade and use in different situations, there are a lot of puzzles to solve in order to gain achievements or pick some of the collectible items. Unfortunately, the game is plagued with DLC, most of which is useless. There are some good DLC, but I wouldn't suggest buying any of them, unless on sale. A good game, that makes hacking-and-slashing through thousands of monsters a lot of fun.

Darksiders II is an interquel to the original Darksiders. You play as Death, elder brother of War, and your job is to prove this guy’s innocent (The game takes place after the Apocalypse but before War was sent back to Earth). Travelling to severals worlds, Death will have to fight dangerous foes and explore deadly dungeons while helping the locals. Darksiders was a Zelda-like with a combat system similar to God of War’s. It’s the same here but everything has been refined. The combat are a lot better and there is a lot of platforming and climbing (Much like Soul Reaver) in this new game which improves the level-design a lot. Also, Darksiders II adds a new influence to the table : Diablo. Death can loot weapons and armors and gain levels and skills. In other words the combats are a lot more complex than in the previous game. Some people would say that’s not original at all and that’s true but by mixing all of those influences, Darksiders II manages to stay true to its big brother while doing its own thing. The game is really fun. The graphics are nice and the musics are pretty cool thanks to Jesper Kyd’s compositions. The only issue I have with this game is that the story doesn’t really move forward. We get to know new things about the game’s lore and we meet new demons but that’s all.
