    Darksiders II is worth playing, but Deathinitive Edition is not worth the upgrade.

    Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition includes all the DLC's and the huge content of the original great game, but the graphical overhaul suffers from inexcusable stuttering and frame-rate issues that prevent you from really enjoying it.

    Old hit remaster doesn’t offer enough of a new content to justify its price. So you can consider DII: DE only if you have no previous experience with Darksiders II – and you should because the age didn’t hurt the game at all.

    Epic. Only word to describe this game. Combat is simply awesome and is on par with top notch titles like God of War and Devil May Cry.Epic. Only word to describe this game. Combat is simply awesome and is on par with top notch titles like God of War and Devil May Cry. Graphics are significantly better than the original release. Soundtrack is one of the best I have ever heard. While the story is just alright, the lore is excellent. The DLC integration is well done and Gunfire has made many minor gameplay changes which greatly refine the experience. Death himself as a character is just amazing and his sarcasm will appeal to almost everybody. Michael Wincott (his voice actor) should receive an award for doing such a good job. Oh, and by the way "THIS IS NO PLACE FOR A REVIEW". 10/10 Expand

The gameplayDarksiders II: Deathinitive Edition is another great game remastered. The story is fantastic, with a great background mythology. The gameplay with Death is very good, one of the best games of this style; Another good thing is the soundtrack. Visually the game has improved and does not have many bugs. In this edition, all pre-order DLCs are there, but otherwise has nothing special. Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition is a great remastered game that will please many players. 9/10 Expand

    One of the most boring games I've ever played. The feeling from slasher is ok, but the way the game is meant to play is awful. The whole gameOne of the most boring games I've ever played. The feeling from slasher is ok, but the way the game is meant to play is awful. The whole game is based on the "spaghetti" game play, when all you do is taking a quest, trying to complete it, then you're said that to complete that quest you have to collect smth, and for that you need to solve awful and annoying puzzles. I just dropped the game because I didn't have enough patience to cope with this poor game design.

    Though I've heard some complains about bugs and stuff, but I haven't seen many.

    P. S. The best part in this game is where you do parkour on the ship in the Kingdom of the Dead

    I played it for 20 minutes and got stuck. Well that was a good move by the developers. So far there is no reason why it is necessary to run onI played it for 20 minutes and got stuck. Well that was a good move by the developers. So far there is no reason why it is necessary to run on walls and roofs apart from 'someone else did it so we'll put it in our crappy game'. You run around kill frozen dudes and get stuck. $3 on Steam for 20 minutes of crappy gameplay. I'll try it again when I get my steam controller but playing it will mouse and keyboard with no way of really knowing what you're doing and so easy to get stuck in places because you have to run on walls and roofs.

    Pros: cheap if you get it on steam, would never bother with microsoft or sony systems. They'll rip you off.

    Cons: Needs both a highly descript walkthough just to play. Probably needs a controller. Boring, Linear, Poor controls, bland console port.

    Get it cheap on sale. The view and poor help in the game pretty much killed it for me. I don't know how they manage to attract new players to this game seriously as there isn't anything about it that really distinguishes it.

    My rating.

    Meh/10
