Executioner, kin slayer, Death. Darksiders 2 tells the tale of Death, the second rider of the apocalypse as he attempts to prove that it was not War who caused the destruction of mankind early. The first game was great fun. It took some of the best elements out of some of the best games and fused them together to produce a gaming classic; it remains one of the best titles of 2010. However, as good as War was, he’s had his part to play; Death is the second horsemen and the driving force for Darksiders 2, one of the best sequels since Assassin’s Creed 2.
