OXCGN's Darksiders II Review: Death Comes Knocking


"Death. The big sleep. The final curtain call. The inevitable. The end.

This is how Darksiders 2 begins.

Darksiders 2 is the sequel to THQ and Vigil’s mildly successful game Darksiders, which was released in early 2010.

It takes place during the events of the first game, with the most powerful of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Death, riding to clear the sullied name of his brother, War.

Instead of taking place solely on Earth, Darksiders 2 takes Death all around the outer realms, from Angelic Outposts to the Land of the Dead, and practically everywhere in between."

The story is too old to be commented.

I won't be taking the plunge with Darksiders II just yet, but I am glad that it's generally being well-received. For THQ's sake, at the very least.

Yeah they needed a hit.

I wonder how many games that are only mildly successful become popular the second time around?

Did Army of Two 2 do better? Risen 2? Two Worlds 2?

I only know of Killzone that started fairly poorly and got better and then more successful later.
