    Darksiders II is Naughty Donkey!

    While I'm far from really getting into the "nitty-gritty" of Darksiders II, I can already tell that it's an amazing game. I know most will not share my opinion, but I felt the same way about the first Darksiders as well!... Read Full Review

    One of this year funniest games.

    I played Darksiders 1 and hated. Period. I thought the game was sucked from a WoW/GoW idea and I didnt have any fun with it. Now Darksiders 2 is a different game. First of all, your new character, Death, is awesome. N... Read Full Review

    Not quite as good as the original.(Possible spoilers)

    After spending some 60-65 hours on DS2, I can't quite shake the feeling that something was missing in my first play through. What was it? Read on and find out. Story: Darksiders 2 follows the story of the horseman "De... Read Full Review

    This is a great sequel to the original following a more interesting Apocalyptic Horseman

    First off, I would like to establish that I am a fan of this series. I played the first game as War completely and did all the side tasks etc. I don't care that it uses the mechanics of God of War and Prince of Persia,... Read Full Review

    Darksiders 2 is a necessary step in the story.

    Okay so I have been reading a lot of stupid reviews on this game and it's time somebody put up a real review Darksiders 2. I have been hearing things like, "Oh it's just a bunch of fetch quests!" or "the combat system i... Read Full Review

    Slow paced but if you like puzzles may want to try it

    Have played both darksiders 1 and 2. First thing you'll notice is lack of any type of game guide or explanation beyond basic moves in booklet or in game. You can guess if you been around games long enough what the stats ... Read Full Review

    Death resurects a series that was dead to me!

    When Darksiders came out I was greatly excited and then after playing it for a day or two the whole thing became monotonous and actually quite frustrating with some of the puzzles. In fact I sold my copy back to Gamestop... Read Full Review

    Could have been better.

    Darksiders II takes off at a good pace and starts with an okay story to pick up after Darksiders I. Unfortunately, there is just not good story maintenance throughout the entire game. Basically, the game drops the "story... Read Full Review

    Darksiders 2 is a sequel that does most things right.

    Darksiders 2 begins with a recap of necessary information about the first game. The Apocalypse happened ahead of schedule, and the Horseman War is blamed for the extinction of humanity. However, this game is a parallel... Read Full Review

    Didn't expect much from a free game - what a great surprise.

    I got Darksiders 2 for free when I bought a second Xbox 360 (wanted to have one for me and one for my wife, so we can both play games at the same time). Since it was a free game, I didn't expect much. I looked up a co... Read Full Review
