Summary: Ds2 had the chance to be a great game and keep darksiders fans interested in the series. Unfortunately this game has more issues from freezing,glitches,characters disappearing to save files being corrupted by the auto save. I loved ds1 and was excited about ds2 but after logging twenty hours the game froze at the final cutscene and I can't finish the game. Plus the side quest of arbiters maze freezes every time you open the book.
Summary: Firstly i am a massive fan of the first darksiders. I have completed it four times and have platinumed it on PS3. This game in it's own right may indeed be good game. The graphics aren't bad, the music is good, the combat seems to flow continuously. however there are a few major points that make this a true dissappointment. 1)The game is no longer a hack en slash, they have made the world far to open, similar to that of dragon age or world of warcraft.
Summary: i waited like 2 years for this game to come out as i loved the original. i dont think i could be more dissappointed, this is not the hack n slash god of war style game that the original was. seems like they have tried to make it like prince of persia and kingdoms of amular. i just cant see why they felt they had to make it more rpg like picking up items from enemies dead bodies, why would death need to steal peoples weapons or armour???
