Darksiders 2 allows you to take control of the Horseman Death's destiny, setting the game in the same time period as the original Darksiders, yet from Death's perspective. You are one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and wield power known unto no mortal being, your name striking fear in to the hearts of men. However, such power will always come at a price, and you have set out to restore balance amongst the world and clear your brother War's name, who has been accused of prematurely bringing about the Apocalypse. Journey through and explore vast terrain whilst on your quest to restore your brother's honour, with a varied array of weapons and armour to aid you.
The features of this game have dramatically improved since the original, for the bigger and the better, with astounding and vibrant graphics. The maps within this game have at least doubled in size since its predecessor, as well as more articulate weapon and armour upgrade systems. Alongside this, there are more puzzles to solve, as well as more dungeons to challenge both your wits and strength. There are also more extensive customisations and upgrades to explore with your character, with skill trees to grow through to fully enhance your capabilities. To help you against this game's much more formidable enemies, fighting styles have also been improved. There are better combat combinations and weapons, such as your signature twin scythes which can fuse in to one given the right combo, as well as an alternative giant hammer to truly decimate your opponents. This is combined with your gear and gadgets, such as the Ghost Hook, which can all be used against your foes to bring about your ultimate victory.
Ride forth through the regions of Heaven, Hell and the Earth itself to restore balance and defend your brother War, at all costs. With Death, you could bring about the end... or the beginning. (Cat Emerson)

I bought Darksiders 2 (Wii U) without knowing a lot about it. I started playing it and now I can't stop! There's lots of quests, lots of loots and lots of fun! If you do all the secondary missions you can easily have 30+ hours of game play! It's greatly recommended!
Darksiders has always been a niche title, with a strange composition of adventure, RPG, action and platform game play. Darksiders 2 (Wii U) is even more strange! More RPG, but with a faster character that climbs better than Prince of Persia! There's a lot of secondary missions and dialog with characters. It's fantastic and the Wii U game play makes it much faster and smoother.
Darksiders 2 is a really nice game!
Darksiders 2 is a good game, and a vert nice price. Thanks!
Nice use of the wii u pad for the weapons selections and maps, it saves toggling main screens. Graphics are nice, gameplay is fun, so its one of the better titles available so far on the Wii U. It would have been neat however if it supported the usage of the Wii U pad as a screen for the gameplay, however it doesn't seem to support that.
Darksiders 2 (Wii U) is a wonderful action/adventure title. Its game play structure reminds me at many points of a Zelda game. It utilises very well the WiiU capabilities for game pad use only, so you can play it while watching TV. If you choose to play on TV (as a normal gamer would), information, maps, weapon select etc. are all controlled with a smart interface of the game pad. The only disadvantage is that the graphics are identical with the PS3/XBOX360 versions, meaning that I believe that they could push the hardware somewhat more. After all we are talking about a system with a lot of Ram and a better graphic card than PS3! Of course this is not a terrible thing whatsoever, because it is a beautiful title and a joy to your eyes. Also for those who haven't played the first one, they will not get puzzled because the plot of the main story is explained analytically from the beginning, leaving no black holes for you to figure out about the previous game.
Darksiders 2 (Wii U) is great. It combines RPG elements with a sense of progression, puzzles which are Zelda - style and a satisfying combat system.
Darksiders 2 (Wii U) is a nice game! I really like to play it!

Darksiders 2 (Wii U) is OK.
Darksiders 2 is a great game, playing on the gamepad!
I bought Darksiders 2 because there wasn't anything else on Wii U to play. I didn't have any expectations and now I can say this is one of the best games currently available on Wii U. And I didn't play the first part. I see a lot of people are comparing it to Zelda, I would describe it as combination of Assassins Creed, Prince of Persia, Devil May Cry and Zelda. But story is completely different from anything I have played. You are in a roll of Death one of four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Puzzles, fights and levels are not that hard. There isn't anything that will hold you up. The graphics look great and all of this creates a great game!
I bought Darksiders 2 as the first game for my new wii u console. I think its one of the best games for the wii u. The game has a good long story an very funny scenes.
Got this game and it was really worth it! Darksiders 2 has so much to offer and it's really fun! Recommended!
A lot of people are hoping to see a new 'mature' zelda title on their new nintendo wiiU. I'm a huge fan of the series and I want it badly as well... however, we don't need to wait any more. Dakrsiders 2 is a great game which will be ideal for every single Zelda fan out there, the game has a different feeling but it's clear that the developers were looking at Zelda series when created the game. It's got great graphics, good gameplay and it will take you some time to beat it especially since it features some additional bonus content which had to be downloaded in the other consoles version and which add you another few hours of game play... great value for such a bargain price.
Darksiders 2 (Wii U) is an excellent game for the Wii U. It's one of the best currently on the market!
