Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition Review

GameZone
29 October 2015
  • Conclusion: Darksiders II is a good game, and at the budget price, it's certainly worth checking out, especially if you haven't played the game yet. However, the lack of a remaster of the first game makes the second one seem rather inconsequential.
  • Pros: Like I stated before and in my review , the game is great. The mashup of various gameplay styles from other popular video game franchises just plain works here. The combat feels quick and responsive, the traversal mechanics feel good too, and the environments are brimming with creativity., The vo...
  • Cons: Darksiders II is a key story that plays alongside the first game. Those having never played the first will be missing out on it. It's a shame that Nordic and Gunfire didn't collaborate better on bringing both Darksiders games to current-gen consoles as a bundle. It feels like having an incomplete...

  • Excerpt: Darksiders II , the follow up to the well-received original and the swan song of THQ, is a relic at only a few years old. A sprawling single player game that runs on fantasy and the rule of fun, Darksiders II has zero pretension.

There's a lot going on and it's all especially confusing because, when we left off, all the angels and demons were on the brink of another fresh...

27 October 2012
  • Summary: Once every so often an absolute gem of a title appears from nowhere; that title was the original Darksiders , heralded for its first class combat and pulling elements from a plethora of games (such as the likes of Portal, The Legend of Zelda and Devil May Cry ) into something that somehow worked as...

  • Conclusion: Agreeable hack-’n’-slash fare – the puzzling and platforming is lightweight, but offsets the roaming and robust combat well.

Review: Darksiders II (PC)

27 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Let me get this right out of the way now by saying I’ve never played the first Darksiders , so I’m going into Darksiders II cold. However, from Sean’s review of the 360 version , I didn’t need to have played the first, as this one is really running parallel to what’s going on in the first game.

  • Excerpt: You want the short version of this story? Here you go: There’s a weirdo in a hockey mask who’s got a giant pair of gardening shears and a goth rocker haircut, and he’s going to fuck up armies of skeletal hordes, demons, angels, and stone golems, on a quest to save his brother. Simple, no?
