I feel a little queasy when I open the envelope of a letter from publisher THQ that reached us a few weeks ago. "Death awaits you in Rome" is written on a card. And while I still think: "But I'm still so young", I remember that there is every reason to look forward to THIS death. Because death is the brother of war. So … at least in the world of "Darksiders 2".

We have already trumpeted the fact that we are declared “Darksiders” fans in the GIGA editorial team in numerous podcasts, previews and video features. But we like to repeat ourselves again: "Darksiders" was "Zelda", was "God of War", was "Devil May Cry", in beautiful, unusually long and beautifully heavy. The sequel will top this in summer 2012 - if you want to believe THQ.
What you can do without hesitation. After his first visit to London, Tobi came back with the words "This will be awesome!", Now in Rome I was also convinced. "Darksiders 2" is one of those few titles that you can see their goodness after a few minutes. What should go wrong? To be on the safe side, developer Vigil Games would only have to repeat the formula of the first game anyway. What they don't do
By now you should know the basic features of the second part. Instead of war, this time death itself jumps through the landscapes beautifully designed by comic artist Joe Madueira, so to speak as a pimped version of his brother. Death is more agile, moves much faster across the numerous abysses and platforms. He also deals better, has more skills and in general - he is just death.
Another new feature is that Death collects experience points and can tap loot. The former invests in one of three skill trees that change the way he plays. Not dramatic, but at least. As a Slayer, he is going to hit, as a Necromancer he conjures up more, conjures up helpers or swarms of bats that do great damage. Finally, the Wanderer talent tree reveals even more underhanded talents.
The ingenious thing about it is the fact that death can put on different armor sets, which then support these talents. If you don't feel like magic anymore, change the mess house and thus your playing style. Vigil wants to sell it to me as a completely free character customization, which is not entirely true, but at least carries traits of it. It should definitely inject more depth and tactics into the gaming experience of "Darksiders 2".
What can already be seen is the design quality with which the predecessor already shone. Even if the graphics engine will hardly pull anyone off their feet, Joe Madueira's unique designs completely distract from it. Whether overgrown ruins with a waterfall or gloomy catacombs - the man can do everything in pretty. On top of that, a first-class soundtrack is already sounding out of the speakers.
