You know, it's always frustrating when you are playing a game that had all kinds of hype behind it and is a sequel to a really good game, but ends up being a piece of junk! Such is the case with Darksiders 2. I really like the first one so I figured the second would be good, but I have to say that I was terribly mistaken. The graphics suck almost to the point where it looks like an old PS2 game and the controls are far from responsive. I play tons of games and I have been playing since I was a kid and I know the difference between a really good game and a rushed attempt at capitalizing on the success of the first in a series. If they continue the series, I really hope they get back to the basics of the flow of the first game.
I had a lot of fun for a while but the game seemed to get repetitive and just really really drawn out. A little to slow at quite a few parts as well. It was not a bad game however, just a little too long and slow.

I didn't play Darksiders 1, but this game is amazing. This game wasn't really near the top of my gameq, but I'm happy I got it. It is a lot longer that I thought and it somewhat challenging, which makes it a lot more fun. I would definitely recommend getting this game.
