If you haven't played the first one I'll sum the gameplay up for you. Mix The Legend of Zelda with God of War, sounds great right? Well much to my surprise it wasn't that that bad it was just monotonous. If you like dungeon crawling RPGs it's not bad. I personally couldn't finish it, I thought it was way to boring. Do this, come back and receive and item. Do something else, come back and receive an item and thats it. It's unbelievably repetitive and I personally don't enjoy that.
Cons: Games a bit buggy had to restart a few times, never ending quest you never feel like you accomplished anything, a bit slow ranking up, to many of the same enemies, and the biggest negative thing i can say is there is entirely too much jumping and that's were the bugs play in a whole lot.

Okay just for clarity, i go with a pros and cons list with my reviews so lets kick things off with the good.
1) Excellent protagonist
2) Beautiful World and colorful graphics
3) Great voice actors and sound effects
4) Combat system improved
5) Nice level system and stat system
6) Amazing weapons and Armor
7) Unique Possessed weapon system
8) Great DLC
1) Tedious side quests
2) Pointless experience boost
3) Low potions limit
4) Lacking story clarity
Personal input and summery: As you can see the pros outweigh the cons and that is just the eight i could name off from the top of my head. Darksiders 2 is a true sequel to the first. The game world is stunning; i found myself just standing and staring for hours. I loved death being the protagonist; there is no one better fit. The voice actors truly felt like they belong to their character roles which is rare. Sound effect are tried and true and fit perfectly. The weapons are better and improved; speaking of weapons, you will loved Darksiders 2 possessed weapons.....but i won't go in detail about those....you will have to play and find out yourself. There aren't many cons in my opinion and overall they don't take much away from the gaming experience. I just wish the toned down on collective side quests....they take a lot of time away from the main story...which dampens the experience. But overall i give this game a 9 out of 10. I completely recommend you rent and or buy this game!!!!
