Darksiders II (Wii U) Review - GameRevolution

GR: By The Maker, Darksiders II is beautiful on the Wii U! The last time I saw the game was for a preview build earlier this year, and the game had had much more of a World of Warcraft look to it, lacking the desaturated tones and cool hues that now dominate it. Everything feels painted, like an illuminated storybook; it augments and enhances everything about the game, from the worldbuilding and character design to the icons on the weapon and wrath UI. (Darksiders 2, Wii U) 3.5/5

Wow, what a shame. Too bad THQ couldn't get it together.

Not that bad of a score.
Score isn't bad, 3.5 translates to a 7/10. I remember living the days when scores like this still mean a good game. I suppose this generation has change that though. An 8/10 for a game back then is a 10/10 today, and a 5/10 is a 7/10. Either that or every 10/10 reviews are just paid. What game out there is so perfect that deserves such a score? Anyway, I would never get this game on Wii U given how unstable it is. Just one less reason to buy a Wii U at this time. Call me where there is a Zelda game.

Assassin's Creed III deserved a 10 IMHO.

As for 7 being a bad game, it isn't on my scale and that's why I thought a 3.5 was good. Not great or exceptional, but good.

1 = Broken and unplayable
2 = Not worth the bargain bin
3 = Bad
4 = Worse than average
5 = Mediocre
6 = better than average
7 = Good
8 = Great
9 = Exceptional
10 = Perfect balance of fun, graphics, story length, overall play time, and future support.
