Very Very great sequel. This is how sequels should be done. Staying true the original story & mechanics while expanding perfectly in all directions. This game got a lot of love from the developers and it shows. I was not even able to finish the game in the many weeks Ive had it. It's that big and long. Feeding/upgrading weapons, fighting, loot. Its all there, its all awesome!

Got this last night in the mail. Played about 20 minutes and took it back to the post office this morning.

Great game but a Must Rent

I played and LOVED the first Darksiders. It was a fantastic hack and slash with great puzzles and awesome story and boss fights. Not much more you could ask for in a game like this.

This game delivers on all of those points once again...
and here's the big hairy BUT!

Too many puzzles I feel this time. I have put this game on the back burner after getting pushed into the about 5th puzzle within the first hour within this area. I feel like they added more puzzles this time more or less just to add time to the game.

Last time there was a perfect balance between puzzle time (30%ish) and straight combat/non-puzzle gameplay (70%).

This time I'm pretty confident its about 60% puzzle 40% combat. Still a great game but do yourself a favor and rent it and don't waste the 60$ especially when the replay value is just over 0 with possible DLC.
