    It's still an excellent game over three years removed from its original release, and having all of its content in one place here with spruced up visuals and tweaked loot distribution is nice -- but the graphical hiccups are a disappointment, although likely patchable. Still, for $30 or less, this is one of the best buys in gaming this holiday for anyone that hasn't played Darksiders II before.

    There are some framerate hitches to go along with the graphical and lighting overhaul, and there isn’t a whole lot new here, but if you missed out the first time, don’t let this one pass you by.

    When the game works, it certainly works. Getting past the camera issues and annoying padding is a fun game that’ll definitely keep you entertained. Plus, you can become a giant spectral reaper and pick apart enemies the size of a Transformer with a single swing.

    As a relatively underappreciated game from the previous generation, Darksiders II deserved a bit more in its revival to prove its worth on the PS4.

    Unfortunately the best Darksiders collection can still be found on the last generation of consoles.

    Darksiders II deserves a better remake on current-gen consoles. This Deathinitive Edition lacks some polish but still deserves attention from those who haven’t yet experienced the original version.

    For $29.99, it’s a good value for someone new to franchise and only veterans who aren’t expecting a “Definitive” Edition.

    this game is amazing. i truly feel like i am playing as death. the mechanic are amazing, and the playability is great. i played this game whenthis game is amazing. i truly feel like i am playing as death. the mechanic are amazing, and the playability is great. i played this game when it first came out on the xbox 360 and i loved every single second of the game. it has been almost 3 years since i played it, and now with the re release of this game, i am enjoying every moment as i did with the xbox version. i will say this, if youre not into puzzles, and high intensity battles, then this game might not be for you, but if you enjoy zelda, and love the god of war series, then you will enjoy every second of this game. if you have yet to play thisgame, then you should play it as sson as possible. it is a must buy.

The camera is broken and holding the lock-on trigger is ridiculous. How does a game this bloated with junk feel so empty? Puzzles are the only positive but they're too few and far between. Expand

However, the game is riddled with bugs, which makes the game crash several times. Even had it crash on me at the final boss battle. Expand

But I needed a long time to get "hooked" because the world looks so damn static and you simply don't care about the story. The characters with their scottish accent look so dull. It feels like playing an empty mmo.

    So I played for about 12 hours and then **** happened: A game breaking bug. I did reset the game, even reinstalled it but nope, game over.

    ARE YOU F*CKIN SERIOUS THQ??? This is a remaster, so your second shot at this one. The bug was well known in the community and there is no fix for it? Come on. I went to gamestop to trade this piece of trash in on the same day. Things like that really grind my gears. You buy a broken game, the developer knows the issue but has no intentions in fixing it.
