Darksiders II Review: THQ and Vigil Look For Salvation in Death | MediaStinger

MediaStinger: "With the company falling on hard times due to financial problems, it’s safe to say that THQ and their development studio Vigil Games have a lot riding on the success of Darksiders II. The sequel to 2010’s breakout hit is far bigger than the original with a new lead character and a vast amount of improvements --but is the second coming of the Horsemen enough to keep the struggling publisher alive, or do repetitive gameplay elements and glitches ruin the riders' return?" (Darksiders 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/5

The game is definitely NOT better than the first one. At least for me, I enjoyed the first one from beginning to the end, while this game has a lot of issues. I did not like the leveling system at all, as well as the equipment/weapons system. I think that when trying to make it much bigger they lost a little focus on a lot of things. There should have been an easier, faster way to access the map too... Also, I think the first one had more action. This game is just chores with tons of bosses, but doesn't feel like an action game.

Something unforgivable though was that you can't use the D-Pad on the menus. That is a MUST in every single game from every console!

Even though I did not enjoy the second one as much as the first one, I really hope there is a third (and fourth) to be able to play with the other horsemen. It is a great concept and I wish THQ has a success with this one. Or just have Sony (or anyone) buy them and release the next sequel

I'm not disagreeing just to disagree but I really like the first one more than most people it seems but I really do love the second one more.

I actually love the leveling, loot, story, gameplay and music more than the first.

Everything from the first was good but that and all the new stuff in the second are just great imo but I know it's just a matter of taste so I respect your opinion :-)

Its just a matter of opinion, really, I personally like this way more than the first, but with other games like arkham asylum and city I like asylum more than city for some odd reason, or I like uncharted 2 alot more than uncharted 3
