GamingUnion: "The ending of the first Darksiders game was a fairly risky move on Vigil Games' part. An unproven developer with a new, home grown intellectual property, it already had a lot going against it without a fairly epic cliffhanger ending. Thankfully we're getting the sequel fans of the original were hoping to see. Sadly, its story doesn't take place after Darksiders' cliffhanger, but wrenches control of War from our hands and puts us in control of Death, a new protagonist on a quest which runs parallel to that found in the original game. D'oh."
