I know I’m slow with this, but I finally have it and I actually have time to play it. So my first thoughts on Darksiders 2.
Throwing in online is weird. Darksiders seriously feels like a fully singleplayer game and any sort of MP is a weird concept, I haven’t tried it out. But if it has the other horsemen in some kind of instance or raid, that works. Could be a tacked on feature, but it works I suppose.
Fighting with Death is much more different to War. I like this one heaps. I just have to keep slamming the dodge/acrobatics button and I’m already halfway across the map. xD
The loot/item system is slow, If there wasn’t such a delay between the menu opening and closing, it’d be good. The system is a nice refresher from God Of War or Infamous and it is nice. Just as long as I don’t have to overbalance my items I’ll be fine.
THERE’S A BLOODY SKILL TREE NOW. THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER. Actually, I have no idea. But it is cool. I’m trying to go for more passive attack bonuses than summons. Because generally active techs are better than summon techs.
The Makers are all Irish/Scottish (Apologies, I can’t tell what’s what.)
Also final point, Death is kind of sassy. Not super sassy, just a bit of a smartass kind of sassy. xD
