Darksiders 2 makes some various improvements on the first game, which was a fun game in its own right, but the series really carves its own niche in gaming with this entry. The graphics are beautiful, not in the Crysis 2 sense with being graphically intensive, but the art style of the game is just wonderful to look at, with some great animation to boot. The soundtrack is subtle but very well done, the sound effects are satisfying, and the gameplay is just amazing. It takes the gameplay from something like Ocarina of Time and mixes it with some Prince of Persia and God of War type gameplay for the platforming and combat. The game is also a huge, lengthy adventure, it will take most players at least 40 hours to play this, so it has good length like you'd expect from an RPG.

The game did have some initial problems with the PC port when it first came out, but its had a few patches and it performs quite well, has more graphics settings to tweak than it did before, and the PC version is bar none the best version of Darksiders 2 you can play. The game utilizes Steam cloud to great effect for your save games, and has steam achievements too. Gamepad and mouse and keyboard support are both well done. If you like action or rpg games, Darksiders 2 is a must buy!

Well, now this is more like what I like. First, the installation went great with no problems. I noted the game set the resolution to match as closely as possible my monitor and it configured the X-Box gamepad perfectly. I started the game and there was a bit of a lead in and some background that gave you the start you needed to get into the gameplay. I fooled around with it and when I looked at the clock again, 30 minutes had passed and I didn't even know it! Game play was great and the graphics were very good even on my old system. What I really liked was the game sort of grabbed me and sucked me into it and I was really getting into it. Having both this game and the first one make for an interesting playing experience. Good one!
Update: 12/19/13: Well, I still give this game 5 stars, but it's really HARD to get by the bosses! I've been killed off 328 times at the latest count trying to kill the bosses. I'm stuck on the Guardian at this time and instead of having the sticky bombs to blow his arm off, after one or two good shots at it, they take away the bombs!! So I have no way to win the battle! Very disappointing. I really like this game and am very pissed off that there is no way for me to proceed. Well, messed up again!!!
Update: 5/1/14: Well got by the Guardian battle and continued on. Finally got stuck on a wall running ahead of a raising platform that kills you if you don't stay ahead. Ran thru that about 50 to 60 times and failed each time in Easy mode. So, once again what's "easy" to one person is "hard as hell" for another. Haven't returned to the game again to this time. Am lowering my rating to four stars due to this.

Darksiders II is not without its flaws, of course; the camera can be very annoying at times, and for some reason it turns very slowly when using an Xbox 360 controller. However the problems that the game might have with its controls is trumped by the simple and enjoyable knock 'em in the air and slash them into little bits action. The combat of the game isn't that complicated, yet it remains enjoyable. One exception would be boss battles, however; the first boss battle in the game was tense and full of very close dodges and precise attacks by the enemy. I've played about nine hours and the rest of the bosses I've met have all had a mechanic to them that didn't utilize the action that the first one did (the second and third bosses in the game is basically a "wait for a bomb to drop then throw the bomb at the otherwise invincible behemoth to make it vulnerable")

Darksiders II is an enjoyable action game, but some boss battles are a bit lack luster and you may have issues with the camera. However, the solid and fun combat will leave you satisfied after a long play session. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Plays like zelda, prince of persia, and god of war in a nutshell. Looks amazing. Also cheaper than buying directly from steam even though it still is from steam. Sound is great. Music is not annoying but really fits each area well and also has a well wrighten storyline. They put some time into it and it shows. Also it does take use of the xbox controller for some of us who don't like to use the keyboard.

Great game. I would have given it 5 stars at full price when it was new. At this price, you cant go wrong. The controls feel like they are built around a gamepad (probably are) but work just fine with keyboard/mouse. Death has become one of my favorite video game characters.

Gameplay: Feels like they too God of War and mashed to together with zelda. Added in a pretty good inventory selection and skill trees to keep Death growing and engaging.

It is a very good game. A couple years old, but nothing about it really felt dated. If you havent played it and like God of War, you will be pleased

this is one of the coolest games i've played in a long time. totally unexpected. the fighting action, the story line, the mental aspect solving problems to get through the world. The graphics and control of the character are exceptional. each quest and aspect of the game are intricate, challenging and just plain enjoyment. The weapons and upgrade of the character are unique and create different styles of action and fighting throughout game. one of my only five star reviews on games, this one is well worth it. shocking suprise and has play through mode.
