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!
A bigger game in both Scope and FeaturesEbo | March 21, 2014 | See all Ebo's reviews »
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.
Darksiders II is so much better than the first!kurisusutoraiku | March 18, 2014 | See all kurisusutoraiku's reviews »
Darksiders II is a massive overhaul of what the first Darksiders was, the combat is a lot better with a good RPG-like inventory screen which lets you choose what equipment Death can wear, and this can affect how your game plays out as you can spec into different playstyles to suit what you want.
The addition of free-running to navigate the terrain is a great idea as it gives you more manoeuvrability while making the game seem more open. The music in the game is really good and atmospheric, and the boss fights are amazing.
I fully recommend this game and if it is on sale, you should definitely pick it up!
A gret example of a sequel that improves upon the first gamesRolalas | March 16, 2014 | See all Rolalas's reviews »
This was a great game that I wish was getting a part 3. The story merges well with the first despite not being a sequel. The questing in the game feels exactly as good as it should be. The only shortfall in the equipment system which feels like every MMO I've played.
