Death Lives

Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death across an expansive gameworld as he tries to redeem his brother, War, the horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.

Like the original Darksiders game before it, the second game in the series is primarily a hack 'n slash adventure. The game takes place across netherworld environments, including "The White city," an outpost where angels live, and "The Eternal Throne," a floating fortress where the Lords of the Dead stand guard over souls that need to be cleansed. Although Death is the most feared of the Four Horsemen, his physical abilities are very different than his brother, War. Death is far more nimble, and relies on a combination of melee and ranged attacks. In combat Death's primary weapon is his huge iconic scythe, with a wide range of other weapons and usable items that must be gathered as the game progresses. Weapons can be dual-wielded, upgradable armour can be acquired for protection and Death has access to a terrifying and powerful pale mount.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death Comes For All 25 Aug 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Darksiders 2, developed by Vigil games and published by THQ, is the sequel to the 2010 underdog Darksiders which got all round positive reviews, but never has the light shined on it and not many people noticed it. Most critiques bashed the original for stealing ideas and mechanics from other games, of course this was just plain wrong, but Darksiders 2 proves that the franchise does have it's own identity.
-Darksiders 2 runs in parallel to the original, but instead of following the horseman War, this follows Death's quest to undo the Apocalypse and reverse mankind's extinction. This quest starts with Death approaching the Crowfather, the 'Keeper of Secrets', so that Death may find out a way to restore mankind. The Crowfather's tower stands in Death's way, this is where you learn about the new improved combat, the new loot system and the highly improved traversal. The combat is much more fluid, the dodge can be chained and integrated into attacks and a large variety of sub-weapons have been added, these include huge, slow maces, hammers, quick bucklers and claws. The large amount of loot is also bound to the new levelling system, Each weapon and piece of armour has a level, you need to be a higher level than the one the loot has to equip it. This makes it so you do not only have to compare stats to decide whether to keep it, but you also need to keep weapons that you cannot equip yet, and compare them once you have levelled up enough. I also cannot stress enough the fact that this game has the most fun, fluid and skill based combat around. When you first look at it, it looks like a button masher, but once you start playing, you need to balance heavy attacks, quick attacks and dodges to defeat foes.

Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
The game in my mind is very good, despite the negative reviews of some sites. I really enjoyed it and think it was a very good extension from the first one and really good features.
The edition is top notch, the mask is amazing collectible item, the booklet is also very interesting. All in all for the price the package you receive is amazing.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A really great game, althoughnot truly a sequel.
the gameplay and graphics have stepped up since the first game.
there are many quests to do and the world is large with lots of characters.
rpg elements like loot and skill trees are included.
the combat is smooth and the traversal is great.
the story is good and the voice acting is brilliant. a must buy for any fans of darksiders and people who like hack n slash and puzzle based games.
