Darksiders II is a tomb raider

Darksiders II is a tomb raider

Darksiders II is about to welcome its first DLC next week. On September 25, Argul's Tomb will be available on Xbox 360 and PC while PS3 owners will have to wait until the next day. Let us remind you that this new content is completely free if you have purchased the Limited Edition or the Premium Edition. For the others, it will cost you 560 Microsoft Points or 5.49€, which, considering it includes a whole new area, two new dungeons, new enemies and exclusive legendary items, is not that much to pay.

As much as I like the game, the freaking puzzles and dungeons are pissing me off badly.
I have minimum patience to deal with this stuff because its way too huge to be done with them and it bores.

Its sad since I want to continue playing it (which I will from time to time to finish).

Thats the one thing i'm liking about it atm. When i first started it i was like "this is shit" the moment the puzzles came into play i was loving it. Still think it's pretty mediocre overall tho, much like the first one.

Im not saying they are bad, its just they are way too long to the point i just lose patience to continue and stop and have to go back hours or days.

But that's why you play Darksiders in first the place, or not(?) Sweet puzzles, nice dungeons. I actually found most of the puzzles to easy (and on the other side one my XBL friends needed an walktrough and raged during the 3rd dungeon, lol).
The combination of Zelda, RPG, action-combat and free roaming is so awesome. I love this game.

Lol i'm not a big fan of puzzle games as well. Liked Darksiders 2, but after Kingdom of the Dead the game get's shitty.
Not to mention the amount of bugs i have encountered. :S

I have a code for this dlc, so maybe will try it.

The game's way too big, way too epic, way too much loot but it's still my favorite game so far, this year. Combat's great, the puzzles are good, the navigation stuff is good and I love the art style.

Anyone that thinks this is a "mediocre" effort doesn't really know the meaning of the word. Stretched too thin, maybe, but "mediocre" is an insult to the fine people that made this game of which there is no contemporary parallel.

Oh and the above screenshot doesn't make me warm and fuzzy for the DLC. It looks like the start of the game, which is the shittiest thing in the game. All bathed in teal light and muddy looking. I hope it's not all like that and is more like the Doom-throwback look at the end of the game. Or ... anything BUT that nasty look at the start of the game.

    Moonwalker @alimokrane: They are certainly going for a much more realistic look. I just wonder why Michel Ancel all of a sudden starts to show these. (31 minutes ago)
