4.0 out of 5 stars Death rides again...just mind the speed bumps. 10 Jan. 2013
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Darksiders 2 is a worthy purchase for anyone with a Wii U but its not without a few problems.

Story

The plot has you taking control of the most feared of the four horsemen of apocalypse, Death, as he sets out to clear his brothers name of prematurely bringing about the apocalypse in the original game. The game's story runs alongside the originals game and ends just before the ending of the original. The quality of story is rather good, if a little confusing at times (it can be hard to keep track of all those biblical names). So far so good.

Gameplay

The gameplay here is solid as a rock. It blends a mix of God of War combat, Zelda exploration with Prince of Persia's acrobatics thrown in for good measure. Don't get me wrong, there is enough here to elevate Darksiders 2 above clone territory, it very much holds its own identity. The combat is very satisfying and works in tandem with a light rpg levelling up system that allows you to unlock skill points which are used to unlock skills, naturally. Traversing the game world is mostly enjoyable, there's always collectibles to find, but I found some of the map unnecessarily large with nothing to look for. You can summon your horse, Despair, at any moment which is always handy.

Sound

The game has a fantastic soundtrack which is fairly memorable. The general grunts and screams are all well done as are most other sounds. The voice acting is what shines, particularly Deaths, and helps create a real sense of immersion.

Performance

Sadly, this is what lets the game down. The game has screen tearing issues in abundance, noticeable pop up and I experienced several game crashing bugs.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game. Easily matches the Zelda feel and should tide you over until that elusive Zelda is released. My issues with the game is the bugs in the software - several times the system freeze and you have to turn off the Wii U from the mains as the buttons freeze. Also, the graphics are a wee bit buggy as well - frequent frame rate drops and screen tears. Then there's the sluggish control at times... But the game is GREAT!

Huge vast worlds, loads of RPS-like qualities, all the depth you desire, loads of side quests, great voice acting, it really is a good game. Unfortunately, since THQ went bust, no updates are being made to fix the issues... It's too bad as this game could have easily been a solid 5 stars had there been a fix for the issues.

By the way, I am NOT a pro gamer! If you want one of them reviews I would suggest that you look to the review sites. Well worth the current price as well - I paid a bit more and it was totally worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Death rides in 1 Mar. 2015
By MB
Brilliant game. I was rather hesitant about buying this game to say the least, given the mixed reviews. Eventually I caved in and bought it, before it is no longer available! It looks great, nice colors within a vast open world (somewhat like Zelda). Sure there are a few glitches like climbing a rock, when there is no rock there, but not witnessed anything too major (yet). Game controls are a little confusing, as too is the the game-pads use, and the manual does not really explain it very well. That being said the story is good and interesting, lots of collectables, side quests etc and the use of the game-pad as a map and to select weapons etc is a bonus (once you understand how to use it!), and it can be used for off TV play, another reason why the Wii U is the No 1. games console. All in all, the game plays and looks good, there is lots to do, although it can be frustrating at times, particularly getting use to Deaths powers/abilities etc. I would definitely recommend this game, but you may need to Google how to do certain things.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game 13 Aug. 2013
By emg
Verified Purchase
Decent game, impressive set pieces and some intriguing puzzles.

Pros: death controls smoothly, the game looks good has a nice dialogue interface the combat is mostly intuitive.

Cons: Dust (the guide) can be rather vague making it very easy to get lost, the menus can be awkward to navigate. The camera sometimes needs adjusting right in the middle of combat.

Good game with top reviews ported to the wii u very well. Pleased with its game play and overall a really good game with a few glitches here and there but well worth the budget price tag.

Good game made better with the wii u game pad... also the dlc completes it and for the price (given the day light robbery Nintendo are charging for wii u games atm) its a good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks nice, good idea but it's not engaging
The graphics are crisp but simplistic, the sound is good, the voice acting is superb (the best part of the game but underused). Those are the good sides. Read more
