Darksiders II Review | Destructoid

Jim Sterling writes: Darksiders II takes the best elements from many games and blends them into a seamless, wholly satisfying package. With a unique protagonist, killer art style, savvy level design, and ferocious combat, there's little left for an action fan to want, while the role-playing elements have been enhanced to such a degree that the overall experience feels deeper and more compelling than before. If this game is not a success, then truly the world doesn't know what's good for it.

I enjoy Jim's reviews and he almost always puts forth a compelling case for his review score.

I always consult Jim's and Ben Yahtzee's reviews before buying a game. They review games for their gameplay value and their reviews never sound like they're just copy-pasting the sayings on the back of the box.

That said, I don't ALWAYS agree with Jim (unlike Ben), and this will probably be one of those exceptions. I was only mildly impressed with the first game and haven't seen anything to convince me that this is an evolution of the series. But I'll see.
