Darksiders II manages to improve on it’s (already very good) predecessor in almost every way. It may not necessarily do anything new, but that doesn’t matter. If you like adventure games then do yourself a favour and pick this game up.

Darksiders II is in all respects a fantastic title. The issues I had with it are similar to issues I have with many big-budget games on the market, and they are a problem here. It is, though, mark of how much I enjoyed the game that I only rail against the problems within that I believe most high-end game franchises continue to struggle with, rather than poor camera or bad voice acting. This is a polished, well constructed gaming experience with few glaring errors. At a good 20 hours to 40 hours for the main storyline, Darksiders II offers quite a lot of gaming for those concerned with spending a premium $60. Add another 20 hours-plus up of sidequests and gamers have plenty of bombastic, illustrated, aural meat to sink their teeth into. The middle section does tend to groan on a bit too long, though that may be more a factor of the tricky puzzle design than any actual storyline length. Overall, this is a title well worth your time, energy, and gaming dollar.

Darksiders II is a huge, fun game. Vigil had a lot of expectations to live up to, and despite some design and technical issues they delivered. Whether or not you played the original it’s an excellent game, and one that I highly recommend.

Fort du succès du premier Darksiders, Vigil Games joue la sécurité avec cette suite qui s’avère très proche de ses origines. Malgré le changement de personnage principal, le gameplay a un air familier qui n’est pas pour nous déplaire. On retrouve la même action nerveuse et accessible bonifiée par un aspect jeu de rôle plus prononcé. L’exploration des donjons et les puzzles se font toujours avec autant de plaisir et la réalisation est cette fois à la hauteur des ambitions de Death. Amélioré dans tout ce qui pouvait l’être, ce second opus est un achat fortement conseillé pour terminer l’été en beauté.

Passé les premières impressions d'une copie de Prince of Persia, on se laisse entraîner par l'histoire et il est difficile de poser la manette une fois avancé. Cet épisode a su bâtir sur les fondations du premier et a résolu la plupart des problèmes de son prédécesseur malgré des décors parfois un peu confus.

What Darksiders 2 lacks in technical originality, it makes up for in style and fun factor. The original took the best parts of many popular action-adventure titles and rolled them into a competent game. This second edition polishes and expands on those things, while adding an ambitious amount of new features as well. This combined with an awesome soundtrack by Jesper Kyd makes for one of the better releases for this genre in 2012. For fans of the original Darksiders this one is a no-brainer, and it’s definitely something any fan of the action-adventure genre should keep on their radar to pick up as soon as they can.

Encore sous le charme du premier volet, on en attendait certainement trop de ce Darksiders II. Au final, ses petits défauts nous sautent aux yeux et nous empêchent de céder sans retenue aux charmes de Death. Ne perdez pas tout espoir, même si elle n'est pas à la hauteur de son aîné, cette suite nous propose une aventure qui mérite amplement le détour et qui ravira les amateurs de loots, de combats effrénés et de voyages inter-dimensionnels.
