Darksiders 2 journeys into the story of Death, one of the four horsemen and his quest to free his brother War. If you've played Darksiders before, you should know the story. If you're new to Darksiders, then it might be a bit confusing. However, Darksiders 2 offers a vast adventure and puzzles to quest through. The only issue is that, there are TOO MANY puzzles. Darksiders 2 can get really repetitive and a lot of the puzzles start looking more similar after the last puzzle you've just completed. I sometimes got lost and confused which zone I was in because the puzzle environment looked so similar. I want to say that its predecessor had more variety in puzzles and challenges than this one. The storyline is long and gets tiring easily. NPCs will make you do quest after quest after quest until you just become lost and confused. Also it doesn't help that each environment doesn't have much variety compared to the other zones. The combat style though is fun and doesn't get bored easily. If you're a Hack n Slash fan, you'll enjoy this. But I would say get the game on sale, because it isn't really worth at full price.

Few times I can genuinely say that a sequel is better than the previous one. Even fewer times when it comes to games. But, this game made it a reality. It's a great story with a really badass character and amazingly fun gameplay. I mean, how could you not love Hack N' Slash? When it comes to my mind a game to recommend, this is one of my first choices. So, if you're not sure whether buy it or no, simply do it.
PS: THQ forever.

Darksiders II is a good second game and can be enjoyed without knowing the story of the first.
The graphics are still good and the gameplay is a bit like God of War, kill them all with your skill. There are diferent weapons which you can choose for the best game experience. You can take a big hammer to crush the enemies or some claws to tear them.
It's also a puzzle game due to the diferent dungeons you may meet. The lifetime of the game is quite long because you can start again the story with your previous level and weapons.
So buy the game that'll allow you to unwind.

When I played the first Darksiders I thought it was truly a great game and that the sequel would be hardpressed to do better than the first. Well, it succeeded anyhow!
As Death you are trying to help your brother War, but the road to that is not easy. There is a long way to go before everything will be right in the world again and many epic battles and environments to see. And how nice they are to see!
The combat is even more fluid than in the first and the weapons a lot more interesting. I think even the animation is better since watching Death swing his mallets is truly breathtaking and the hits seem to have a lot of weight to them. Controlling Death is rewarding, too, because of the tight control scheme that just works. The lore is also expanded and very good.
Might be the best Hack and Slash game I know!

Darksiders was a great game that took many by surprise. Borrowing from titles such as God of War, The Legend of Zelda, Prince of Persia or even Portal, Darksiders made for an epic 15-20 hour adventure following War's exploits (one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse) to fix the damage he brought onto the world and prove his innocence (that he was in fact called to bring forth the apocalypse).
Darksiders 2 is that game's direct sequel and it takes place after and during the events of the original, this time following Death. Combat wise it's very similar but the scope is greatly expanded this time around. Enemies drop loot (weapons, armor and more) and you can customize death's appearance with various items of clothing. While Darksiders was more Metroidvania, Darksiders 2 is full on multi-region open world.
Suffice to say, Darksiders 2 is an enormous game and while not perfect (it loses its focus quite a few times), if you enjoyed Darksiders and wanted more, this is a must buy.
