There’s something about discovering a game that simply brings joy to you. The original Darksiders, for many, was one of these surprises. Developed by then newcomer, Vigil Games, Darksiders was part God of War, part Ocarina of Time. The combat was rich and the world was expansive. It was a near perfect experience. The hype for Darksiders 2 was palatable.
However, hype can be a double edged sword. Sometimes, you can get your hopes up so much for a game that, when it fails to deliver, it can break your heart. In the case of Darksiders 2, the hype is, sadly, too much, especially given how broken of an experience it is.
