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.
Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death across an expansive gameworld as he tries to redeem his brother, War, the horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Like the original Darksiders game before it, the second iteration of the series is primarily a hack ‘n slash adventure. The game takes place across netherworld environments, including "The White city," an outpost where angels live, and "The Eternal Throne," a floating fortress where the Lords of the Dead stand guard over souls that need to be cleansed. Although Death is the most feared of the Four Horsemen, his physical abilities are very different than his brother, War. Death is far more nimble, and relies on a combination of melee and ranged attacks. In combat Death's primary weapon is his huge iconic scythe, with a wide range of other weapons and usable items that must be gathered as the game progresses. Weapons can be dual-wielded, upgradable armor can be acquired for protection and Death has access to his terrifying and powerful mount, Despair.

This was one of my favourite games on the ps3. I played it all, including all the dlc.s and got every single trophy! Please see my ps3 review for further details. I loved the visuals, the graphics, the characters, but most of all, the outstanding music!!! I put in many many hours of time into it, but loved every minute of it. Now its coming to the ps4, I can't wait to play it all again! I don't normally go back to a game once I've finished it, particularly if I have all the trophies, but such is my appreciation and love of this game, I want to play it again with the improved visuals and upgrades for next gen. If, like me, you loved Darksiders 2, I would highly recommend picking up this game and starting your adventure one more time. A definitive 5 stars from me.
