CAG - I’m ashamed to say that I never got around to playing the first Darksiders. I have no excuses. It’s been sitting there on the shelf for years and for whatever reason I’ve never played it… even though it’s always sounded like a game I’d greatly enjoy. I even told myself I’d get to it this summer in preparation for the release of Darksiders II. It didn’t happen. I’m confessing all this so you will know that I’m coming into the series fresh. That said, is Darksiders II a good place to mount up for newcomers to the apocalypse?
