I love this game! Some people talk about the monotony of it but I find it far from it why some elements may be the same the scenarios are all quite different being able to pretty much make your character from all the different items with each and every item having different properties. I'm only a level 10-11 right now and I can't get enough of the game. It's actually in my top 3 this year. So definitely check it out because I love it and the reaper animations at a bosses demise are classic!!!

Darksiders II was an all around good game. Not too short (took me 40 hours with side quests and trophy hunting for 1 playthrough on NORMAL), quick and responsive gameplay, and enough diversity that the button mashing feels more like Mortal Kombat than Streets of Rage. There are some quirks. For one, the graphics felt a bit 'cartooney' for the subject matter (One of the horsemen of the Apocalypse trying to save humanity...ahem). Also, there are parts where speed and timing of the controls are important (ala Uncharted), and after 10-15 deaths in a row with mandatory cut scene the stickiness of the controls makes you want to find the developer and make him play through it. Thankfully this issue is minor, though, and all in all it was a B+ in my book. Worth a rent or a used buy for sure.
