  • Conclusion: A stale and repetitive action RPG; that rare sequel that is inferior to the original.
  • Pros: Great aesthetics, solid combat.
  • Cons: Repetitive gameplay, awful puzzles, incongruous RPG elements, poor level design, fetch quests.

  • 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

  • Excerpt: Even Death doesn’t know when to call it a day Well, if the Mayans were right and doomsday is incoming this Christmas, at least it’ll be somewhat punctual. 2010’s sleeper hit Darksiders taught us that everyone beyond the realms of our own existence can be just as clumsy as any human could, with the...
  • Pros: GATRILLIONS of loot, Unexpectedly massive game racking up almost 30 hours, Great mixes of combat and platforming
  • Cons: Generic enemies that constantly repeat themselves, Combat system seems unfair on harder difficulties, Occasional glitches and awaiting patches

  • Pros: Improved combat, Random loot becomes an obsession, Side Quests, Challenges and New Game+ add replayability
  • Cons: Graphically dated, Boss fights are boring (dodge, stab, repeat), Ends with a wimper
