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.

I figured i'd give this version a chance after renting the first one, (because these games are definitely rental worthy at best...) and was still disappointed by the flaws the game has. Not only do you get stuck doing countless annoying maze like labyrinths but the gameplay is glitchy too top it off. Too many times after 'wall jumping' and falling only to have Death get stuck in a corner and having to restart from the beginning. Ended up not beating it and shipping it back. Another game failing to try and top the perfection that was God of War. If you liked Darksiders 1 and had no problems with it, then you will like this game as well because it is the exact same thing. Exact.
