Darksiders II is remarkably well put together, particularly in light of its impressive scope. Bigger doesn't mean better, of course, but this isn't a "more of the same, just bigger" kind of sequel. The game uses its expansive geography to cultivate a poetic tempo in which your intellectual triumphs are rewarded with the immediate pleasures of fleet-footed platforming and demonic brutality. In Darksiders II, Death is not an end, but rather, a portal to a memorable saga of snarling brutes and stolen souls.

A refined formula of the original will get its hooks in even deeper in Darksiders 2. Whether you enjoy basking in the spoils of your victorious battle, or get more satisfaction from completing a puzzle that’s been troubling you, Darksiders 2 gives you the best of both worlds, and it does so, beautifully.

Darksiders II is a brilliant game with little problems that ruin the overall game’s experience. Rather than sticking to one genre and its mechanics, the game borrows features, systems, and ideas from various genres and games to form an insane mixture of action, role-playing, looting, and more. Heck, it even has third-person shooting! Oddly enough, what could’ve been a recipe for disaster comes together to form a redefinition and refinement of what has come previously.
