A brother is someone you can rely on to help you when you need it. When your brother is accused of starting the End War and bringing about the destruction of humanity, you can be sure he needs your help. Released two years ago, Darksiders II follows Death, the leader of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, as he tries to prove War innocent of the crimes he has been accused of. This quest will bring Death to many worlds, meet many people, and uncover many secrets others want kept hidden.
Darksiders II has an interesting place in the Darksiders franchise as it is not a chronological sequel to Darksiders. Instead it appears to take place prior to the majority of the previous game. This can be an interesting point to keep in mind as multiple events in the two games are related.
Like its predecessor, Darksiders II is still an action-adventure title, though with some RPG elements added in, largely in the form of skill trees and loot. It also has the same Mature rating for violence, blood and gore, and suggestive themes. The first two are not too surprising for this game and the last is due to the somewhat revealing attire of some female enemies.
Shall we ride with Death to save his brother once more, or leave them both to whatever fate awaits them? Read on to find out.
