  • Cons: Lacklustre story, RPG elements may not appeal to all, Some frustrating control mechanics

  • Conclusion: Death undoubtedly represents the best of Darksiders so far. Vigil has worked hard on a game that, in all honestly, I don't want to spoil. In the epic journey across many lands, plenty of interesting characters are met, and titbits revealed.

  • Summary: More than just a "dark Zelda." Darksiders II is an expansive journey with deeper RPG elements and a more badass protagonist than its predecessor, and still retains the action roots that make the games in the series so enjoyable on a moment-to-moment basis.
  • Pros: Death meshes perfectly with the Darksiders world, New RPG mechanics are welcome, Vivid art design
  • Cons: Combat can occasionally be repetitive, Some underwhelming boss battles, Tedious camera at times

Darksiders II Review (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)

  • Excerpt: Darksiders II isn’t your traditional sequel; while it does share many characters and various gameplay elements with Vigil’s first Darksiders game, it is in fact a brand new adventure.
  • Pros: Death is a great character to play as, with combat to die for., It’s presented very well and the art style is wonderful., Boss battles are often very fun., Loot, such as clothing and weapons, adds another, brilliant dynamic to the game., It’s a much grander adventure than the first game, with lot...
  • Cons: Gameplay becomes tired and drawn out., The story soon wears thin, it’s really nothing special., For a game with such a large world, most of it feels wasted and empty., Poor pacing means that the game drags and becomes repetitious at points.
