That said, if you’ve not played it before, I do highly recommend it. As a game, I still believe it holds up tremendously, having aged quite well and ably capable of providing a meaty action experience. It’s my sincere hope that, one day, we get an all-new Darksiders and the series eventually gets the attention it deserves. That day may never come, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Darksiders II was one of the more memorable titles from the previous generation, with breathtaking, mythical settings supported by interesting characters, fascinating lore, and snappy gameplay. This very decent Deathinitive Edition includes all of the DLC and commendably improves the assets and lighting effects, but it gets slightly cut down by our scythe of criticism for minor glitches and framerate woes.

Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition brings the original’s diverse world, interesting dungeons, and great loot system to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Sure, the story is dull, and there aren’t a whole lot of original ideas at play here, but the vast expanse of the adventure should please anyone who missed out on it the first time around.

You could ask for Darksiders II to be more imaginative, then, and it would be nice to see some sharper puzzles, tighter combat and loftier jumps, but for a game obsessed with revenge and murder Vigil has crafted something with a surprising amount of heart.

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition is best as a purchase for those who haven’t yet experienced the original version. The game remains a fantastic riff on adventuring conventions perfected by the Zelda series, and that it gets the imitation right is a compliment of the highest order. Still, the graphical upgrade here isn’t as noticeable as in other remasters, and the game remains a bit uneven in its performance. As a relatively underappreciated game from the previous generation, Darksiders II deserved a bit more in its revival to prove its worth on the PS4.

I appreciate how the DLC content has been integrated into the Deathinitive Edition rather than being separated as it makes the gaming experience seamless. When the plethora of DLC content that includes powerful weapon packs, stunning armor sets, and cool extra missions are added to over twenty hours of gameplay, the result is a great deal for newcomers at only $30.

Despite some minor issues, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition is a great PS4 re-release of an already fantastic action-adventure romp.

When it’s done right, a good remastering can breathe new life into a game like Uncharted: Among Thieves, but I question why a game like Gunfire’s Darksiders II: The Deathinitive Edition is needed.

Me alegra que Nordic Games haya tenido el valor de seguirle apostando a Darksiders, serie que merece realmente la atención de un público extenso y no sólo los que alcanzaron a jugarlo en consolas de generación pasada. Si bien la remasterización aporta poco al juego y pudo haber hecho más por el mismo, se ofrece a un precio adecuado a sus contenidos, algo que podría ser sumamente atractivo, sobre todo para los que no probaron el título en su versión original.

Darksiders 2 era una muy buena aventura hace tres años y lo sigue siendo con esta Deathinitive Edition, de eso no hay ninguna duda. Además, es la versión más completa de todas porque llega con los contenidos descargables, con un renovado sistema de looteo y alguna modalidad que añade dificultad extra. Pero la sensación es que tres años después, las mejoras son insuficientes.

Darksiders 2 war bei seiner Premiere vor etwa drei Jahren ein sehr gutes Action-Adventure - und ist es immer noch. Der Comicstil hat nur wenig seiner Faszination verloren und präsentiert sich zeitlos. Die Mechaniken ziehen einen zusammen mit der stilvoll gestalteten Welt immer tiefer in das Abenteuer und bevor man sich versieht, findet man sich in einem Motivationsstrudel aus Entdecker-Drang, Beutejagd und Charakterentwicklung wieder.

Cette Deathinitive Edition représente un bon moyen de découvrir ou de rédécouvrir le jeu dans une version complète, sans compromis du côté de ses différents DLC et dotée de graphismes revus et corrigés pour l’occasion. Si elle dispose d’effets d’éclairage retouchés et de décors rehaussés de nouveaux éléments visuels, la version ne dépasse toutefois toujours pas les 30 fps sur consoles et souffre encore des mêmes soucis de caméra que le jeu original.

Darksiders II è un titolo eccezionale che fa del suo combat system e della sua storia gli elementi portanti. Una storia che non ha molto senso di esistere se estrapolata dal contesto della serie e che arriva su next gen con maggiori problemi rispetto a quanti ne avesse originariamente su Ps3 e Xbox 360. Capiamo la necessità di Nordic di fare cassa e riportare in auge il brand ma questa operazione rischia solo di fare più male che bene a chi Darskiders lo ha amato veramente.

Diventa sempre più difficile valutare le rimasterizzazioni, specie quando si parla di giochi abbastanza recenti come Darksiders II: in questo caso, la conversione di Gunfire Games si è rivelata discreta dal punto di vista contenutistico e appena sufficiente sul fronte della grafica, ragion per cui non ce la sentiamo di consigliarla a chi ha già sviscerato l'originale.
