Darksiders II the sequel to the great action adventure Darksiders is a great game itself that improves upon it's predecessor in almost every way. The combat has been made much faster than that of clunky War. Death is, despite his name, actually a likeble character and his fluid prince of persia like movements make him a joy to control. The developer has added a loot system, which at first I was sceptical about, but which works surprisingly wel for this type of game. The world has been expanded as well being much bigger than the first and the optional quests make it feel more like you are experiencing your own personal adventure. Just like the first one the graphical style is great at showing of Joe Mad's art style. The only negatives I found about this game is that although war is mentioned here and there, it doesn't really feel like you are helping war, we never see him in the game. And the end felt a bit abrupt to me. Lastly, a bit more variety in the 'powers' you acquire would have been great too. Overall however, this is a great action adventure.
