Very Good

Good all around

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.

The game is a vast improvement on the first, however the possessed weapons, the artifact that makes blank possessed weapons, and the stats of some clothing you can stack up.... just makes the game incredibly broken mid/late game.

I would suggest playing on hard if you are any good at managing stats on this game.....

By the end of the game I had a near 100% crit chance and had some where in the range of +300% crit damage.....

The final boss lasted all of like 3 mintues. x.x

The game was great but, it seemed to get stuck sometimes, and a couple of glitches heir and their other wise it's all good.The story is great and I like the fact that you can upgrade your weapons and gear.
