    Another powerhouse from Vigil Games, Darksiders II is a must have.

    That's what Darksiders II is all about, exploration and an epic quest. I also applaud the team at Vigil Games for taking the risks that it did with the focus of this title and the scale to which it is built.

    There are no doubts that Darksiders II is one of the action/adventure games of the year.

    It is an adventure game through and through, and it manages to capture the feeling of fun and exploration in a way that few games can.

    It still isn't that original, it still isn't that deep and some bugs and glitches kept spoiling the fun. Still, Darksiders II is a massive adventure with an epic story and gigantic, interesting worlds to explore. An improvement on the first one and overall a game nobody should pass on.

    Play as Death, the fourth rider of the apocalypse and fight your way to victory. It's not very memorable, but the art style is great and there's a lot to collect in the big world.

    Whilst Death's entry in the Darksiders series certainly has better gameplay mechanics and a better style than War's, the story fails to make a mark and the game, for as big as it is, can soon become monotonous at points.

    Its kinda like "God of War" had sex with "Zelda", then they had a baby named "Zod of Zar". Meanwhile "Kingdoms of Amular" and "AssasinsIts kinda like "God of War" had sex with "Zelda", then they had a baby named "Zod of Zar". Meanwhile "Kingdoms of Amular" and "Assasins creed" went out drinking, got drunk, then banged with a busted condom. "Kingdoms of Amular" wanted "Assasins Creed" to get an abortion, but she didnt. This bastard child "Assingdoms of Creedular" then proceeded to slip a roofie in "Zod of Zar"'s drink one night, 9 months late Zod of Zar, birthed a monstrosity of a child and named it Asszod of creedzar.....This child reached the age of 20, cut off its genitals, changed its sex, and named itself darksiders 2. If that story sounded appealing to you, then you will probably like this game!

    This game is good....but it feels mediocore. It just lacks focus...it attempts to do everything, and it does everything well just not perfect. I really wanted to love this game because it looked good and played well, but I just couldnt really get into it. It just felt generic and a lot of the dungeons felt tedious and bland. Some parts were absolutely gorgeous, fun, and amazing....but it felt that I had to play through an hour long boring dungeon just to reach a cool part of the game. It is a very good game, but I traded it in after 15 hours....there are just too many other great games I need to try, and this game offered too much(which isnt a bad thing)....all the things it offered were fun, but failed to draw me in. If I had less videogame systems and wasted less of my money on videogames I would have loved this game! If you only have $30 and are looking for a couple good older games that dont have multiplayer, I would just get this instead! All the gameplay mechanics(climbing, combat, loot) are comparable to newer titles, so you should just try this game first because you could surely spend 100 hours with it. Just buy it at gamestop used, then return it within 7 days for a full refund if you dont like it.
