GAME NAME: Darksiders 2
DEVELOPER(S): Vigil Games
GENRE(S): Third Person Quest
“Death, not as morbid as predicted”
Darksiders 2 is a follow-up game to Darksiders, focused on the character War, the first horseman of the Apocalypse. Darksiders 2 follows the second horseman of the Apocalypse, Death, as he seeks to redeem his brother’s actions which caused the start of the End Times in the previous game.
Larger open world, full weapon, armour and skills upgrade systems, a multitude of side quests and an astonishing array of new enemies and bosses almost make this game an instant hit with fans.
First 5 Minutes:
You’ll be riding your faithful steed, Despair as you start the game. You just need to follow the straightforward path until you reach the ruins, where Despair automatically disappears. While on horseback, you can “charge” and expend a block of stamina to give Despair a temporary boost of speed.
The game then walks you through basic moves. During this you also learn about “Dust” he is another of Death’s faithful companions. This crow will keep your bearings by showing you the way to your objective(s). Press the left thumbstick to order Dust to fly to the next objective. There will also be a tutorial on wall running, fighting, jumping and so on…. if you are a very quick learning, it is possible to get to the first Boss: War Shade in the first 5.
Multi – Player:
The game offers no direct multiplayer ability but does offer a player leader board so that you can match your skill to those of others.
Currently, one know DLC exists: Argul’s Tomb (Information by IGN Wiki)
Argul’s Tomb is the first DLC for Darksiders 2 and it places heavy emphasis on frozen environments and surrounds the tale of an older Dead King than the Lord of Bones. His name is Argul and he was betrayed by the current Dead King for the sake of his throne.
Ostegoth offers Death a reward in return for locating Argul’s Tomb (the source of Argul’s power) and destroying it.
In the end:
In the end, I think that Darksiders 2 is probably one of the good ones, definitely not a money waster and well worth the playtime that you will put into it. With a progressive style character both on weapons and abilities – the unique Deathly approach to a open world quest like environment pack with all around action will be appealing to most gamers that like this sort of game.
This is one that I liked. The story, the character, the weapons and most off all – being death…. whaaahaahaaaa.LOL. I would definitely recommend this as a game to have. Death, not as morbid as predicted.
