    A blend of influences leads mixes to a clever platformer.

    I got Darksiders 2 for free on my Xbox 360 and again on my PS4 where I finally got around to playing through it. Darksiders primarily reminds me of Prince of Persia but also features elements of Diablo and God of War mix... Read Full Review

    So much for a wasted potential

    A much improved sequel but there are still issues

    Visually, It retains the same style the first game had while also providing unique environments throughout the open world. The bugs and glitches, which were a major, game breaking issue in the first game, are a lot less ... Read Full Review

    I replayed on my XBOX360 and I must say it's fantastic.

    This game is purely fantastic. It's a hack and slash with puzzles all around the world. In this game, you're Death and you fight to save redeem your brother WAR and save humanity itself. The game has so many puzzles, so... Read Full Review

    Death Comes Knocking Again

    Reviewer's note: The actual Darksiders 2 game is much better than a 7, but this review is based on the Deathinitive edition remaster. Darksiders 2 is one of the most underappreciated games of the last generation. It had ... Read Full Review

    Darksiders II is competent at everything it does but it never blows you away, or has the story to back it up.

    Darksiders II story takes place alongside the first one. War's brother and rider of the apocalypse, Death has heard of his brother's predicament and goes on a quest to revive humanity. Death is told the Tree of Life can ... 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
