Darksiders 2 Review | ActionTrip

ActionTrip:

Darsksiders, yes, well we all know that Vigil Games blatantly borrowed elements and features from other games and that was one of the main gripes people had with the original. However, we did not regard this as a downside because the folks at Vigil clearly poured their hearts into the project, creating a deep universe with compelling characters and a lot of beautifully designed locations to explore. Their motto was probably: "we steal, but we do it with style." So, who the hell cares, when it's essentially a good game? Darksiders 2 continues much in the same spirit as its predecessor, which means you're looking at a game that effectively combines Prince of Persia platforming and Devil May Cry combat. Of course, comparison with the God of War series is unavoidable, but again, this is something that hasn't bothered us much, seeing as the game still manages to retain its own atmosphere and that's very much the case with Darksiders 2. (Darksiders 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.5/10
