Will Darksiders II Best Its Predecessor?

Jorge S. Fernandez writes: "During its development, few gamers paid much attention to Darksiders, the first title created under THQ’s Vigil Studios. Now, the sequel is finally approaching store shelves, this time with an audience of converted fans prepared for its arrival. But was the first game’s success just a fluke, or will Vigil be able to deliver an even better experience that could propel its franchise beyond its current label as “the mature Zelda”?" (Darksiders 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Looks like it will. I am hoping it does enough to get the funding to allow them to continue. Would be a shame to only get 2 out of 4 horsemen.

On paper it sounds better but will it be?
In 1 week we will find out. Darksiders 1 was very good I hope this one will be too.

indeed, i was very impressed with the original, sadly i didnt even play it until just this year but i enjoyed it so much that i ordered the collectors edition which is something i havent done in years.

this is easily my most anticipated game of this gen

I'm currently playing DS1 for the first time. It's pretty damn good! Hopefully I will have it completed by next week so I can pick up DS2.

I think so, i thought the first one was really good until a little more than halfway through the game. I started to get bored with it. This one looks much better!
