The graphics are way outdated, there are problems with the camera, and the controls needed work. Although these technical problems are noticeable, the game is epic, fun, and the challenges are addictive. Wasn't too impressed with the story, but it was worth paying attention too. The game is a must play for most, but just be aware of the problems mentioned.
To say this game was better than the first would imply that everything was better, which is incorrect. Darksiders 2 took a different direction on the previous game play that fans of the first might not enjoy. Heavy RPG elements have been implemented into the game to give it a more expansive feel, however, at times it feels like the game is just too over-saturated with items that it can just become confusing. At times the controls seem to be ill conceived and unresponsive, and the dodge system can seem erratic. The story and the graphics is where the game truly shines, fans of the first can appreciate how the two games intertwine by the conclusion, and the graphics are gorgeous. All in all, if you played the first you'll probably like and hate certain things about the game, including the elusive game crashing glitches still present. And to someone new to the story, if you like RPG's this could be for you. I for one, found myself horribly frustrated and pleased in the end. 9 out of 10.
