The first Darksiders deserved more credit than it was given. All of this comparing to other games, when I only looked at Vigil's ability to create an involved story through what ever game play mechanics that were appropriate. In my mind Darksiders was one of my all time favorite games. Darksiders 2 is amazing!!! My only complaint I wish that they implemented a lock-on system to enable the player to really take advantage of the dodge mechanics. PLAY THIS GAME!!!!!
