TechnoBuffalo: Darksiders 2 Review – Don’t Fear the Reaper, He’s Not That Exciting

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.

thats a damn shame. its an amazing game far better than a 6.5.

Yeah, it's a great game. I can't see how anyone could give it less than an 8, it's one of the best games released this year.

How is the game not selling much when it was the best selling game for the month of august? Great game, not as good as the first. Found it not as interesting character and environment wise and a little rushed at the end (a little more lilith and Samael would have been great), but still a great game overall.

I pity you that you're so unable to think for yourself that you'll believe someone elses opinion and take it as fact and absorb it into your own thoughts as if it were your own conciousness, when you probably don't even know the guy writing the review.

the game is great, one of my favourite games this year, great combat, good puzzles, great dungeons, an amazing art style and unique world to explore, and lots of gameplay, but it's ok, you miss out on a great game because some random asshole with no taste said "i give it a 6.5"

Eventually a truthful review for once!

One 6.5/10 review...or the multiple 8+ reviews...looks like a 1 against 50 to me.

The combat is a joke.

You do the same 3 moves and then the jumping spin sword attack.

Over and over and over and over and over again.

At least that is what I get from the game play videos.

So your opinion is basically worthless and uninformed...

MrAnderson2181d ago

there's like 15-20 different moves you can do as soon as you start the game, another 15-20 you can buy, then about another 5 you can get through skill trees, aswell as multiple upgrades to give them elemental damage, healing, critical bonus etc, you know nothing, and you're a jackass.
