Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition review
Meh
by iBarin

This is a good object of study: an example of an ambitious team that undertook to combine in one project visual style of Warcraft, scale of Twilight Princess, the DMC combat system, and revive Raziel from the Soul Reaver. Unfortunately, the studio Nordic bite more than could swallow and game turned to be huge and empty.




The game is indecently stretched. Precisely I can say in how many — 3 times! Because each mission involves searching for three parts of the key / artifact / group of characters. On the way to each part, we meet the obvious puzzles, which are rarely forced you to think, but only wasting time. I did not have the patience for additional missions, DLC locations and collectibles.
In contrast to the emptiness are beautiful locations. For the sake of them I probably beat whole game. It’s interesting to look at the worlds here. Ancient trees, Giant towers, Soaring islands and much more. Each wall is drawn so it can be used as cover of a metal album. In the air constantly floating fog or sme ashes. Unfortunately, such cool objects are well noticeable and when you sees the head of Gargoyle above the main gate as main element, and later its smaller version as a sewer pipe, it spoils the impression.
Story try to be epic, but fetch missions lower its volume. When Death at the end of the game says: "I do not know why I did all this" you share these feelings with him.

One of my Favorite Games. Yet all the crashes and bugs are just annoying. Still, I had a lot of Fun. The Story is so well, but I like The Diablo Style. Look forward to DS3 now and hope that has fewer bugs than this one.

One of the best Games for me. Have now bought the Game from Steam, but already know it via a purchased DVD version. Better than Darksiders and above all capable Programs. The Puzzles are demanding, the Fights fluid and the Game also has a nice Narrative (which most Games lack). There's really no Point I could criticise at the Game.

I'm full on the excellent Game. Class Graphics, super Sound, dense Atmosphere, beautiful Game world, strong Talkers, good Controls with Gamepad! Unfortunately, the Game still has a few Bugs that are annoying, but don't break the fun of the Game! I can recommend the Game to anyone looking for a first-class action Game On a large Scale! I give 9/10 Points!

Unfortunately, after Selecting a Savegame, it crashes. In this Form, it is not playable. There is probably waiting for a Patch. However, 6 Euros is a very fair Price for the Owners of the original Version. However, Larian with Divinity Original Sin and inXile show with the Wasteland 2 Directors Cut, which is also completely free. But Since the Publisher switched, Nordic Games is content, which they can make some Money from the improved Version, they did not benefit from the original Sale.

Well... Let's Put it this way: The Game is cheap In the Sale, there are collectible cards and it's also not too bad to make ends Meet in a Period of Boredom. Otherwise:-Climbing Mechanisms failed, but: Why not? -Music repeats itself and starts to annoy easily at some point, but what is Windows MediaPlayer for? -Setting with Death etc. I like and the Story itself is Ok-the Key assignment is really absolute very first Cream with Strawberries, which has lost nothing of its stunning Batting Creminess even after the umpteenth Walk through the Menus! (That was Irony)-after the absolutely busted Boss Fight against an Opponent 40 times the size of yourself, where the Camera enjoys hiding behind Grass or also lensing from below through the invisible Ground, you think to yourself : Now the SPiel could be finished. But no, nix there, it goes on with exactly the same Puzzle elements as before. Maybe an Advantage if you like something like that Well well, I'll recommend the Game, but you shouldn't expect yourself too much.
