Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in a weaving tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother War, the horseman who was blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen embarks on a quest to undo Armageddon. Along the way, the Horseman discovers that there are far worse things than an earthly Apocalypse, and that an ancient grudge may threaten all of Creation. Become the terrifying force which everything fears but nothing can escape. Death Lives in Darksiders II.
Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death across an expansive gameworld as he tries to redeem his brother, War, the horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Like the original Darksiders game before it, the second game in the series is primarily a hack 'n slash adventure. The game takes place across netherworld environments, including "The White city," an outpost where angels live, and "The Eternal Throne," a floating fortress where the Lords of the Dead stand guard over souls that need to be cleansed. Although Death is the most feared of the Four Horsemen, his physical abilities are very different than his brother, War. Death is far more nimble, and relies on a combination of melee and ranged attacks. In combat Death's primary weapon is his huge iconic scythe, with a wide range of other weapons and usable items that must be gathered as the game progresses. Weapons can be dual-wielded, upgradable armor can be acquired for protection and Death has access to a terrifying and powerful pale mount.

If you haven't played the first game, I highly recommend it. Yes, the Post-Apocalypse does not have helpless fleeing from you at every turn like PROTOTYPE 1 & 2. However, the game stands on its own from controls to graphics to combat system and cut-away CG scenes that are very professionally voiced. I think the addition of two pets (Steed and Crow) are great; I do wish that you could upgrade them.
CONTROLS: If you have played God of War, Ghost Rider, or Castlevania, you will find them very intuitive. Additonally, if there is a move you can't seem to do ... just do not buy it from the Demonic Merchant. They are easy and intuitive which is NOT a rip-off; it is common sense.
GRAPHICS: As RICH as Fable, Kingdom of A: Reckoning, and God of War 2 with an focussed at EPIC SCALE scenery which is beautiful and detailed. IMO the graphics in Dragon Dogma and The Witcher are better but those are exceptional games.
CHARACTER GROWTH: There are 3 Talent Trees to invest your souls into (Assassin, Reaver, and Necromancer) which is makes is necessary to know what you will want to make in the long run for effective playing as the challenge ramps up.
STORY: It is grand and full of conspiracy, nothing short of what you would expect of a mid-grade Dark Fantasy for Teens 9-16 or those young at heart.
Enjoy the ride.
Same fighting style, same quest, new caracter.
If you like the first one, go ahead and buy it,you won't regret it.
