TechnoBuffalo: There’s a lot that’s remarkable about the Darksiders series. It’s a first from a new developer, Vigil Games. It’s a new IP from a struggling publisher, THQ. It sports high production values across the board with a unified art direction, strong level design, and solid combat.
And yet, why am I so bored?
While Darksiders was about the Horseman of the Apocalypse named War, Darksiders 2 is the story of Death and takes place before the first. War, having been sent to Earth under false pretenses to initiate the apocalypse, was imprisoned for a century. Death, during War’s imprisonment, aims to save his wronged brother.
