Ben of Xboxer360 writes, “It's no secret that I was a huge fan of Darksiders; an Epic action RPG with a rich storyline and some amazing gameplay, my time with War one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse was a grand time! The only problem was the journey unfortunately had to end. Never fear though as stories are never truly over, they just change shape or even perspective and this is where Darksiders II steps up.
Running parallel with the events of the original Darksiders, your story kicks off during War's imprisonment and eventual conviction; you control an extremely angry Death, next in line of the four horsemen. Knowing full well that his brother War is possibly the most honourable and incorruptible of the four, Death believes his brother to be at the centre of a mad conspiracy and sets out on a mission to find proof of his brothers innocence, travelling to the Nether Realms and beyond in order to do so, reaping the souls of anyone foolish enough to stand in his way.”
