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.

Key Game Features

  • Become the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, able to destroy entire worlds and battle forces beyond Heaven and Hell
  • Explore startling gameworld environments reminiscent of heaven and hell
  • Customise your experience with varied armour sets, weapons, and skill trees allowing players to create their own Death
  • Explore a vast open world, complete dozens of side quests and customise your Death with a full leveling system, skill trees and endless equipment combinations
  • Death is a nimble and agile character capable of incredible acrobatic feats allowing the player to explore the world like never before
  • Argul’s Tomb DLC pack offering extra gameplay content, including a whole new dungeon to explore, further extending the Darksiders II experience

5.0 out of 5 stars Where, oh where is the cake? 30 Aug 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Limited Edition with Argul's Tomb Expansion Pack|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Darksiders (PS3) was a good game, a good ol' hack and slash with a few good puzzles to tax the old noggin... Darksiders 2 is a VAST improvment on everything that was good in the first and a few more things thrown in for fun!

Graphically it is very similar to the first installment with the typical "second installment in a franchise" spit and polish although I do have to admit it that Death looks fantastic, much better than War did in the first game.

The controls are very easy to come to grips with and the obligatory tutorial/intro to the character/setting the story up nicely level is good, covers all the basics without being too easy and gives you a good feeling of Death's capabilities. Once you advance into the main game (which is pretty much open world btw) you get an idea of the actual scale of the game... its massive!

Characters are not too engaging, other than Death I never really cared for any of them (but then why would I? they are just there to give me the next puzzle/task/mission so I can progress). The missions are a bit.. repetitive but then its a hack'n'slash so what do you expect?? Weapons are plentiful and subscribe to the Borderlands school of weapon manufacture with various weapons offering many many stat boosts, not to mention special weapons, abilities, wrath abilities, time travel, oooh loads of stuff!! The only thing missing was cake.

Graphics - good
Controls - good
Death - really really good
Puzzles - good
Sprouts - Gross
Sounds - Good
Collectibles - Everywhere and annoyingly addictive to find!

This game reminds me a lot of the old Soul Reaver and Legacy of Kain games, Damn good fun, Puzzles that are so blindingly obvious (once you've solved them) in huge worlds that actually require you to go back to prior areas with your newly earned abilities.

Quite frankly get this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sequel! 2 Sep 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Limited Edition with Argul's Tomb Expansion Pack|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hi,

I'm only about 10 hours into the game so far but from my own experience this game's fantastic. Yes the graphics aren't spectacular, but certainly better than what those negative Betty's claim.

I was an absolute avid fan of the first Darksiders and have completed it 1000/1000 on the Xbox 360. While it has changed direction from the first game, game play wise it's still fantastic and I personally feel this was the right direction to go as having another Darksiders game play wise as the first one I feel would make it a tad boring.

Sorry this isn't the greatest review, but their are others out there who will write more in depth ones but my own personal opinion of the game is, if you're on the wall about this game, go for it it's certainly not a quick over the weekend 100% completed trade it in game. It'll easy take you a few weeks if you're a casual player.

Would highly recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy for evey gamer out there. 17 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Limited Edition with Argul's Tomb Expansion Pack|Verified Purchase
Deep character development, long game, tons of replayability value. For it's current price it's a no-miss oportunity. Recomended to buy along with the first part of the game to make the story whole and understand its context.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy the Death's Quest 21 Aug 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Limited Edition with Argul's Tomb Expansion Pack
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
OK, I played and loved the first game but at times, it felt that it was overly complex and tricky and left me wondering if I'd ever find a way out from some of the problems to which I was presented, yet even that couldn't stop me from donning the guise of Death and seeking a way to help War from his predicament.

What you get to do in this game is a start off in what I'd like to call a trainer world (The Forgelands) which will allow you to get to grips with the games hero as well as allowing you to update your skills from the training given. Its huge, has plenty of dungeons and of course plenty of things for you to scythe your way through like a hot knife through butter. The skills are adaptive and whilst some of the places will have you scratching your head you need to sit back take a look around and remember the skill sets that you've discovered as well as a few tricks to figure out the next path.

The game controllers are reactive, give you a good degree of control and also allow you as the player to have a lot of fun whilst not only building up the points for trading but also for giving you the chance to find some hidden gems to gain better bonus' later. There's an update all ready and waiting for you to either spend your points on or to download directly from online, there's also a few very tough enemies that will take you some time to figure out their weaknesses to defeat.

Add to this a huge amount of gameplay for your buck, newly developed worlds that will allow you to discover and mangle your way through that feels entirely in keeping with the original and all in this is a game with a ton of fun to be had. Finally throw into the mix good graphics, some amazing cutaway scenes and a huge set of vocal talent to help make this game something special and all in you've got a real treat on your hands.

3.0 out of 5 stars An amazing game with HUGE let-downs... 13 Oct 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Limited Edition with Argul's Tomb Expansion Pack
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start off by saying how innovative this game is. Although it borrows from other games it's still incredibly unique and full of personality. The characters are believable and the dialogue is fabulous as well. The graphics are also great as well as the fighting style.

The game really empowers you. You never feel week and you really believe you are Death.

Alas... the game-play lets it down. All it is is a HUGE FETCH QUEST. "go get three of this", "go get three of that". Literally. Once I was asked to get three of something then one of the three characters then asked me to get three things for them to complete the original task... It really frustrates me and really compels me to put down the game and never return to it.

The game had huge potential but they really need to rethink their game mechanic if they want me to buy any future sequels...
