Darksiders II alone is $29.99 on Amazon and $49.99 on Steam.
Don't miss this deal.
P.D: All of the above can be activated through Steam. Also, the Abyssal Forge DLC is included in the Season Pass, activating Abyssal after Season will get you a warning about that item being already activated.
The combat is very satisfying. From combos to special attacks, it feels amazing. It is very simple combat on the surface, but the more complex you get, the more lethal your attacks are. There is all sorts of weapons and moves to kill the intelligent AI.
The puzzles are challenging but not to the point where you just give up. They are smartly created, and you feel pretty smart when you complete them without any help.
The difficulty is done perfect. Having played the first Darksiders on normal, I dove into DS2 on apocalyptic. The balance of difficulty is beautiful. Enemies can do lethal attacks that can kill you quickly, but you can come right back with your own just as deathly. The boss fights are mind blowingly good. Each has their own characteristic moves and attacks that you will learn and adapt to and slay them. Everything you do in this game, you learn from, and you feel very successful when you do it right.
It took 24 hours to beat the first game, not including collecting every item. Backtracking a level was a little annoying at times, but it wasn't overwhelming.
I am 15 hours into DS2 and dont think ive reached halfway. They are long games compared to most 10-12 hours campaigns of other single player experiences.
I really hope this franchise continues, do yourself a favor and buy these games. The adventure and story are very interesting. Nothing ever feels like its dragging along and nothing ever feels repetitive, or grinding. Its all great.
Immediately I started into Darksiders 1 only to realize that there is no way I am playing this with a keyboard and mouse. A short trip to Fry's later and I had my adapter to use 360 controllers on PC and away I went. Amazing gameplay, decent storyline, lots of gore, and I am definitely happy with this purchase! I am still very early in DS1 because I am taking my time on it but I am loving every minute of it.
That being said, you definitely will need to have some type of controller. These games are just not made to be played with a keyboard and mouse. I am sure it can be done, but it is just easier otherwise.
The controls are very similar to Devil May Cry or the recent Ninja Gaiden games, although nowhere near as complex. There are a lot of moves to remember but nowhere near as many and not the long combos (although there are still combos that can be done). You do gain additional weapons but your primary weapon is always the same - the other weapons are just used in conjunction. There are a lot of puzzles to solve (my least favorite part) and you may want to consult a walkthrough at times out of frustration. The main thing to keep in mind is that every time you gain a new weapon, the puzzles are going to require using it.
Overall, great games all in one package. Get a controller. Great deal!
Although Darksiders 2 hasn't been ported that well, it runs decent enough on my system (laptop with gtx460m 1.5g and i5 460 at 1920x1080), as long as I don't crank up the settings too high (read: pretty much low). Seems to me the requirements are a bit high seeing as it could play ac3 at medium settings beautifully.
Where Darksiders was a very straight and linear adventure game, Darksiders 2 has more rpg elements with a decent skilltree, alot of weapon customization and lots of sidequests. The combat is pretty fluid and it still has the same old zelda-like puzzles and overal gameplay.
Wouldn't have been worth it at $60 but all in all highly recommended if you can get it for under $20. great bang for your bucks!
