I felt the beginning of both darksiders 1 & 2 were slow, uninteresting, and gave me no desire to keep playing. I continue through the clunky combat and get cutscenes that are terrible with terrible VO work. Every part of this game makes me upset, more so because people are comfortable saying its around a 8 when in fact it is more like a 5. If a 6 is considered an above average game, then this is a 5. I got about 40% of the 1st one done and maybe 25% of the 2nd for what that's worth. I simply couldn't stand it any longer.
