I am super excited for Darksider II. I loved playing through the 1st game as War (there's just something really cool about playing as one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse). I had a lot of fun with the first game, but 2 is going to probably even blow it out of the water! I read that one area/dungeon alone would fit into the entire map of the first game, which is way cool...plus graphics are sure to be better and the gameplay I'm sure is improved. Plus, you get to play as another one of the 4 Horsemen Death, which is really freakin cool too. Anyway, to put it simply...the first game was really cool, and the second game is going to be even cooler! I for one preordered this, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good action/adventure/open world type game!

This game is very enjoyable to play and visually appealing. The story captivates the gamer and puts you in the journey of Death. It was obvious that the combat system had a lot of time put into it, as it was the most phenomenal aspect of the game to me, personally. Not simply a button masher, but combinations of various techniques and specials customizable to your play style. The puzzles are another benefit to further engage the player. A couple obvious puzzles later evolve into brain twisters that put most players to the test. The only downfall I found throughout my experience with this game is the rare game freeze. I completed the game with a total of two freezes, however, with the games auto-save feature, little effort or time was needed to put me right back where I was. I highly recommend this to anyone who has played the previous game and anyone who enjoys adventure/action-rpg. games. You will not be disappointed.

It's unfortunate that the first game didn't get as much of a spotlight as it so deserves. I fell in love with this game through the commercials on TV, then the videos on youtube, and even further with the interviews on their website. The lore and story behind it is so fascinating, I couldn't help but pick up the first Darksiders, especially since it is so cheap now that it has been out for a couple years. Absolutely love the first game, and cannot wait for Darksiders II to be released! Pre-ordered, and pre-ordered the book as well. Fantastic. I ESPECIALLY look forward to any further content this franchise produces. There is so much to be explored within the Four Horsemen that it's getting me all excited just thinking about it!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by RaGa enjoyable "Buuuut"
DS2 was very enjoyable to play. The graphics are as great as the first, the mapping of each realm are very large and much more to explore than the first DS. there are many various primary and secondary weapons. Although (spoil alert) "do not read past this warning", as I played furthur into the game there seemed to be a bug during the arbiter's maze side quest i was able to play to level 4 of the maze cause i had not collect the 4th scroll but when i found it and went back to read the mystery book it froze on me, I had to manually restart my console and retried and the same thing kept occurring as in the same spot I hope they fix this bug. I really like this game though and how the story unfolds.
Rated 0 out of 10 by AC3Assassin Most Wanted Or Darksiders? (Darksiders)
This Game Looks Amazing Especially Being Able To Play As Death. Now That's What I Call A Good Game. xD Also The Looks At E3 Really Impressed Me, I Loved The Graphics And The Combat. It Looks Like A Very Addicting Game And So Far Has Need For Speed Most Wanted Beat. It Has Been A Bit Hard To Decide Out Of The Two But I Think I Am Going With Darksiders 2 To Add To My Game Collection, Some Other Recommended Games From Me Are: Assassins Creed 3, Medal Of Honor: Warfighter (Preorder To Get Exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta Access) And Lastly Black Ops 2, all Of Those Are Games that May Not Look Good To Some People But The Series They Come From Are Addicting!

Wow. Where do I start? I've played the first Darksiders and absolutely loved it. Got the platinum trophy and all, and I plan on doing this same in this one.Darksiders II has all the components you love from the first one and it's done even better. Death is an agile character and you can feel it. The one thing they majorly improved on is lasting appeal. This darksiders II has so many sidequests/things to do. They even plan on having 30day/60/day/90day DLC coming! Darksiders is a series I will always remember! Keep it going THQ!! I've played the Darksiders series so much I'm rank 1 in the "Highest Combo" Leaderboards -GoldFlare :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by SuperNinjaReject The Perfect Sequel
The world is so much bigger in this installment! After playing it for just a few minutes, I realized that there was so much for me to do! Now don't get me wrong.. It's not a full, hardcore RPG. It's open world with side quests and looting (new armor and weapons), but is still lacking some role-playing elements. This doesn't take away from the game at all because the story overpowers any of it's small flaws. The Legend of the horsemen can be so intriguing, and this installment hasn't let me down . Do yourself a favor and buy the first title, it won't disappoint.. War is a name to remember! Buy them both! They're worth it!

This game looks like it is going to be addicting! After I saw the gameplay from E3 I just knew this was going to be amazing like the first Darksiders. My favorite part thats going to be in this game is that you get to play as Death, no doubt he be epic in this game. Also I saw in the E3 gameplay that you get to fight War in the game, which is an epic fight if you ask me. So overall I think this game is going to be fantastic and im glad that I only have to wait one more month to get this game. I just know that Darksiders 2 is going to be a great game for me to play.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Dtruone This game is Amazing!
Just picked this title up and played it for the first time. I am completely blown away! This is the absolute first game that has incorporated some of my favorite features in today's games. I love how it has taken hack and slash elements from God of War and traversing elements from Prince of Persia and put them together. The audio effects send me to a different world and I feel completely emersed in the world that is Darksiders. I am looking forward to playing this game for the next weeks of my life. Thank you THQ and Vigil Games.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Guitarjeter DS1 is alot better
During my play of Darksiders 2, i found the game to be very poorly made. The graphics, im not a big fan of em but they work i guess. The dialogue was very bad, the music is very boring and doesnt fit with the game. Plus this game is basically a HUGE puzzle. The execution's aren't as great as the first one, you NEVER fight any angels or demons really your stuck in the valley of the dead the WHOLE game. I found it to be very boring. I was very EXCITED for this one, but it was a huge let down.
