Nostalgia at its finest...,
This review is from: Darksiders II (Video Game)
Let me begin by saying I've never written a review for a game regardless of how strong I feel abou it. I would of written one for Batman Arkham City, but enough fans and critics gave the game the credit it deserved--- Reviews are to help potential buyers make a choice after all. With the lack of user reviews so far about this game, I felt I should include one. I've only been playing now for about 3 hours, and I will say without a doubt, it is the best game of 2012....If Batman hadn't come out last year, I would say for the last 2 years! Most reviews are saying if you liked the first one, give this one a try--This obviously being true, even if you couldn't get into the first one, or didn't play it, this game will change your mind about the franchise. Its is much more fluid and responsive than its predecessor.
The "look and feel" of the game is taken straight from The Legend Of Zelda....Dare, I even say improves on it, as the combat is taken from God of War (which is a lot more exciting than Link's combat styles). That combined with the fact that the visuals are as though were taken from Lord of the RIngs coupled with the amazing score....'EPIC' is all I can take out of this game. One of the finest action/adventures I've played....and I'm just beginning.....

The Zelda and God of War comparisons are accurate, just as they were in the original. I've found this one borrows from another favorite of mine, Borderlands. The random items/armor/weapon drops are just one more thing to love! Excellent review!

I thought Dark Souls was the best game of all time. How does it compare to that?

The second part of your review looks exactly the same as the one IGN did, comparing it to those exact games and movie. I have to agree though, it's one of the best, if not the best, game of this year.
