Chad Smith: "Let me start by saying that despite never having played the first game, I was excited about being able to review Darksiders 2. I had heard good things about the first game. It wasn't a run-away hit AAA title – or even a critics' darling – but it had good buzz. It felt like more a hipster underground "you've probably never heard of them" type of good – a sleeper hit, or a cult classic sort of thing.
So I went in excited, but not exactly sure what to expect. After a little bit of confusion with the THQ sign-up to get my bonus weapons, I was off to worlds unknown. And I mean really unknown."
