With nothing being released to speak of and great weather the gaming community has been kind of dead. Thankfully, a huge fall release season is coming up and the gaming world is alive again!
Darksiders II came out last week and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It is a semi-free roaming game with a fighting style and feel of God of War and a refreshingly long campaign. Most games in this genre tend to be very short but this one actually has some longevity. Furthermore it isn’t very repetitive. The difficulty is very appropriate for your progression and the bosses vary in difficulty and approach. What I mean by this is that every boss is different and none allow you to just attack mindlessly like most slice-and-dice games.
Where it does fall back is in the entertainment of some of the puzzles. Although they do make you think, you end up taking twice as much time figuring out how to open a door than you do fighting what is on the other side of it which is frankly the funnest part of the game. The fighting is very enjoyable and satisfying. The puzzles? Not so much.
Get it or Skip it?
Get it. This is definately a very enjoyable game and because we cant get God of War for the PC this fills that void.
