Darksiders II - Zelda Has A lot of Catching Up



Darksiders 2 is finally here, I should have my copy by this afternoon. Probably my most anticipated game of the entire year, really can't wait to play it.

I guess the review embargo isn't up yet, because there are basically no reviews as of now, but it doesn't matter, I think we all know the Game of the Year for 2012 will come down to Borderlands 2 and Darksiders 2.

Features:
  • 25+ Hours of Gameplay on main campaign path. Almost doubled if you go for 100% completion.

  • 4 main areas, each as big as the whole of Darksiders 1

  • Loot: Defeat enemies and open treasure chest to find loot of all sorts.

  • Customization: Use the loot you find to upgrade and customize YOUR Death like YOU want.

  • Skill Trees: Darksiders II gives you 2 Skill Trees, the Harbinger (melee focused) and Necromancer (magic focused.) You can re-spec at any time.

  • Possessed Weapons: Very rare weapons that users can level up by feeding it other weapons you don't want. Stat increases depends on the weapons used to level up. You can name them too!

  • Kinetic gameplay: Both Combat and Traversal now feel more streamlined and faster.

  • Fast Travel: Go to your map and instantly teleport to any previously visited locations.

  • Easier Exploration: You gain access to your trusted horse from the opening moment of the game.

  • Nightmare Mode: Akin to Diablo 3's Hardcore Mode, one combat related death is permanent and you lose all your progress.

  • New Game+: You keep your loot, enemies are stronger and you have better chances of finding better equipment. Most powerful gear is NG+ exclusive.

  • Online Trading: The "Tomes". You can trade and share gear with your friends and also store up to 200 items.

  • Arena combat mode: The Crucible is unlocked later in the game and lets Death battle waves and waves of enemies. Each 5 waves, Death can collect a reward and quit, or continue and gain even greater rewards. Each reward is generated randomly based on how far you get. You will fight enemies, mini-bosses and even bosses. Some items can only be found in The Crucible. You do not gain EXP when fighting in the arena. IF YOU DIE IN THE CRUCIBLE IN NIGHTMARE MODE, YOU LOSE YOUR PROGRESS COMPLETELY!

I just bought the first one a couple of days ago. Not really impressed and it's kind of boring me.

In this genre of games, they never start becoming fun until about an hour in.

Ill keep going. But at this point I have so many games to play that if a game doesn't grab me the first 30 minutes I put it on the back burner.

Darksiders 2 is the first game this year that I had to make myself quit playing it, or I would have played it all night. I love it.

Lots of great reviews too, IGN's pretty much at the bottom for low scores.

i think ign's reasoning isn't all that bad

Quote:
"The thing is, if you're going to so blatantly derive material from such well-known properties, you better nail it. While Darksiders II provides a lengthy and entertaining experience for action adventure fans to sink their teeth into, in the end it never comes close to reaching the heights of the various franchises it so freely borrows from."
i think yes it doesn't 'nail it' but fuck, it's got different game's elements so it doesn't have to 'nail it' IMO, it just has to be close since it's putting great elements together in one game

I had the collectors editions pre ordered from Kmart and they cancelled my order today F'n bastards. Cant find it in stores now.. May have to wait for the WiiU release.

I finished the 1st one game is good. the 7.5 seems low from the other reviews i have read on the game..
Also IGN gave it the 2nd to lowest ratings out of all the review. averaged out at 84/100
