They did it! Not only topped the first (sorry if you missed it!) but created the most incredible game ever! No Joke. The creator once said, "I took the best parts of the best games, and improved on them." And, he did, for sure. The climbing and story of Uncharted II, the fighting and large scale enemies of God of War, the dungeon/puzzle/collectables of Zelda, the quest style of Elder Scrolls and the online use of WoW. And thats all I can say, WOW!
Don't miss out on this one gamers. Well done THQ. Game of the year for sure!
I didn't play the first Darksiders so I am vague on the original story but I read up on it from wiki to get caught up.
The story is not slow or boring, it starts off with great action and compelling story of creators, angels, & demons. Mankind is wiped out, "Death" is all that can save us now!
Action is God of War style while being able to get 100x combos if fighting 4+ monsters. Multiple types of combos with power up abilities while maintaining a skill tree. I am only 3 hours in but hooked, probably going to end up buying this. Gotta love Gamefly for that.
Loot system is simple and not complicated or clunky.
Multiple dungeons to explorer with a Prince of Persia sense of puzzles & acrobatics (Zelda puzzle style as well).
