Darksiders II Review | Meodia

Meodia reviews Vigil's game, Darksiders II;

"What do you get if the Prince of Persia and The Legend of Zelda series’ got together and formed a love child? Darksiders II would be the results of that unholy union and it seems to have survived the birth without any major defects. Darksiders II isn’t only influenced by those games, but seemingly the whole history of video gaming up to its creation. It’s refined down the essence of a thousand iterations to create a game that feels oddly familiar, yet alien in its design and content" (Darksiders 2, Xbox 360) 79/100

not that 79 is a bad score but I personally thought it was way better than that, very underrated.

Huge fan of Darksiders 1 and 2.

Then 2nd, while it did everything the 1st did but bigger and better, it didn't 'feel' like Darksiders.
The story was more convoluted.

Darksiders 2 feels like a testing ground for what may be an awesome Darksiders 3 (going off of sales; not likely).

I'd give it a 7.5 or 8. Good game, but just fell short of greatness. Needed more polish.
