This game didn't do it for me. Looking at the previews I thought it would have a cool story and be similar to God of War, but was I wrong BIG TIME!!! The story line was horrible and hard to follow the graphics were even worst then the story line!!! Game play was bad, but I only played the game for maybe 30 minutes or so and then it was turn off placed into the mailing sleeve and back to Gamefly it went.
I always like to finish my games, this one's hard.. as it's long and mostly boring.
If you enjoy pushing stones around, you may like this game. It's a bit like Skyrim meets Lord of the Rings: War in the North if you played that. But way more boring. And I think the controls are fairly bad. Graphics don't look quite as good as you would have hoped.
The story isn't very engaging, maybe just slightly interesting. The combat can be fun, it can also be frustrating. The loot system is one of the simpliest and easiest to use I've found though. Thank god for that at least.
Not what you're looking for if you liked the first

If you enjoyed the first Darksiders with War, you will regret playing this one. The only thing done right is the story but with boring and repetitive gameplay, even playing as Death himself can't save this game. Fans of a potential series should be extremely disappointed as the first one was great and this second installment will kill the prospect of a series. One can only hope that the developers of this game have been fired and embarrased by their product so much so that we will never hear from them again and allow competent game developers to wow us with more than concepts but rather entertaining gameplay and amazing stories living up to the hype.
