Darksiders II

1 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Although Darksiders II has been available on the PC, PS3 and XBox 360 since mid-August 2012, it is actually the Wii U version that the developers have probably spent the most time perfecting due to the innovative new gaming controls in this action adventure game.

Expert Review

17 January 2013
  • Summary: 2012 wrapped up with some interesting, and unfortunate, events in gaming. Against some pretty ugly odds the Wii U launched successfully, selling out in its first week thanks to a solid lineup of third party software.

  • Summary: I have become like Death, destroyer of worlds.
  • Pros: Art direction, musical score, Combat is visceral and satisfying, Death himself is a great character, Great Zelda-esque dungeons, Lots of optional quests and dungeons
  • Cons: Death is also an errand-boy, Easy to get sidetracked or loot-obsessed, GamePad controls inferior to Pro controls, Plot seems poorly structured

Darksiders II Wii U review

21 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Darksiders II puts you in control of Death, a Horseman of the Apocalypse who sets out to prove the innocence of his brother War. Apparently, his bringing about the end times early and destroying the entire human race was a big no-no, so Death strives to set things right by beating the snot out of...
  • Pros: The action-packed combat, Hoarding the massive amounts of loot, Challenging dungeons and puzzles
  • Cons: The Wii U GamePad functionality doesn't add to the overall experience, Graphical changes make some open areas bare, Lack of in-action dungeon maps on the GamePad is a missed opportunity

Darksiders II comes with a few extra technical foibles on the Wii U, but the fluid action and intriguing exploration are still front and center in this expansive adventure.

20 November 2012
  • Summary: The Wii U version of Darksiders II may suffer from some additional technical hitches, but this vast adventure is so absorbing, it's still easy to lose yourself in its oppressive world.
  • Pros: Role-playing elements give combat a great sense of progression, Clever environmental puzzles with a consistent learning curve, The promise of new loot keeps you pushing forward, A lot of content to uncover and secrets to unearth, Atmospheric presentation draws you in
  • Cons: Too many frame rate hitches and loading pauses, Most battles are too easy, even those against enormous bosses
