Darksiders II

Playstation Illustrated
10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Darksiders II has the same visual style set in the first game, but takes the player into a much more vast and interesting set of locations. These areas are as different as the lush greenery of thick forests to vast open deserts to frozen fjords and lava-filled caverns.

  • Excerpt: Darksiders II was not initially on my radar, and I got off the primary quest early in the game and attempted to defeat a boss that I wasn’t capable of beating at that point and was ready to shelve the title out of pure frustration.
  • Pros: Diverse gameplay, deep weapon system, diverse gameplay experience
  • Cons: Steep learning curve

  • Summary: With the original Darksiders being something of an office favourite here at Click, the arrival of its sequel was something that we’ve been looking forward to for quite some time.

Darksiders 2 Review

14 August 2012
  • Summary: The mix of ideas at play in Darksiders 2 could have turned out to be a disaster, but Vigil stitches it all together expertly. From the corrupted idyll of The Forge Lands, to the twilit expanses of The Land of the Dead, to the thin, broken line between Heaven and Hell, Death's grand adventure ranks...

  • Cons: Occasionally uncooperative camera, Challenging gameplay will occasionally frustrate, Some RPG components and features could use better explanations

Darksiders 2

GamesRadar
14 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Take a story based on the familiar mythology of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the lightning fast combat of combo action games, the item collecting of a dungeon-crawler, then give it the scope of a Zelda title, and you’ll have an idea of what to expect from THQ’s Darksiders franchise.
  • Pros: The new and improved, in-depth combat system, There is an excellent balance of combat, exploration, and dungeon-crawling, The challenging and rewarding dungeon puzzles
  • Cons: The performance stumbles without a game installation on consoles, Being forced into using the fast travel system, Tutorial pop-ups replace Mark Hamill's “Watcher” companion from the first game

Darksiders II

Auracore MediaWorks
14 August 2012
  • Summary: Like any good sequel Darksiders II builds and expands upon the original in every single way.
  • Pros: Beautiful, vibrant world; wide variety of weapons; lots of loot; variety of enemies to battle; intriguing story; consistently good voice acting; tight, responsive controls.
  • Cons: Sometimes aggravating boss fights; overly simple platforming; one incredibly frustrating level late in the game; camera can be somewhat problematic.
