Very underrated gamestrumpsuit | July 15, 2015 | See all trumpsuit's reviews »
Darksiders 2 is absolutely gorgeous and an extremely well done game, one that I don't think really gets the recognition it deserves, along with the first game. The puzzles are intricate but not overly difficult (though they may leave you scratching your head at points), the combat is extremely satisfying and the storyline is just absolutely fantastic. Throw in really good mechanics, an excellent upgrade system and weapons that make you feel like a mother******* badass and you have a really great game. Would definitely recommend this if you've played the Darksiders 1 as it is a really great follow-up to the world and gameplay of the first game. If you haven't played the first game, get this one and the first one!
Great hack 'n slashMurderbot735 | July 14, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
This game is really fun. It's like a combination of Zelda (the 3D ones) and God of War (I think, I have never played it but the combat looks pretty similar). The "dungeons" are aesthetically awesome, and full of puzzles. The combat is fluid and responsive, and you feel really awesome. The game works well with a mouse and keyboard, but is designed for a controller. The music is also really good. The technical aspect of the graphics may not be so good though. The textures are pretty terrible, but the aesthetic part is as I said great. You should really get this game if you have any interest in hack 'n slash adventure games, at least if it's on sale.

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 :)!
An evolution in Hack n' Slash Gamingsycomantis1991 | May 14, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
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.
