About Darksiders 2
Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, embarks upon a quest to restore mankind, and redeem his brother’s name. 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 . . . Can DEATH really become mankind’s savior? The original Darksiders, released in January 2010, received critical acclaim including the Best Fantasy Game 2010 award from IGN. Darksiders followed the story of WAR, wrongly accused of starting the apocalypse, on a quest to reclaim lost honour and take revenge on those who wronged him.
There hasn't been a word about visuals on Wii U yet but Edge mentioned some framerate problems when heavy weather effects happened, sometimes into the teens...hmm. (0 minute ago)
@MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (18 minutes ago)
That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (25 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: Where arbitrary review scores fail is conveying any kind of context or comparison to give a sense of just how good something is. It's summaries like that that hammers the point home. (26 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: EDGE has always had a soft spot for nintendo anyway. (33 minutes ago)
