If you're talking about the change in cutscenes, they were changed to be more in line with Ryu's personality. I assume they decided that with the original, they made a wrong decision by making him so heartless.


Who needs some useless quick time events?

Also those Ayane missions and free Momiji DLC.

This is why all we get is spoonfed crap these days. Gamers are so ridiculously ignorant about anything to do with gaming, which is why every M rated game is for the toddlers here.

Anyways, a bad port has absolutely nothing to do with hardware. That's like using the Silent Hill HD collection to say the PS3 is weaker than the PS2.

Actually, IGN has stated that the graphics for not only Darksiders 2, but also ZombiU are not up to snuff with the other current gen consoles. That's not to say it's inherently the Wii U's fault, but it's naive to think it doesn't play any part.

Not to mention the general feeling regarding ZombiU is "meh."

^read the 9th paragraph for the graphics statement.

Did you read the "For a rundown of the Wii U specific features of Darksiders II, scroll down to the "Wii U Difference" section at the bottom of the review."

The review is a copy paste of the 360 review, here:

"Unfortunately, the graphics arenít quite up to snuff with the current generation of hardware. "

You're talking about TC, right?

versions for multi-platform games (such as Batman, Assassin's Creed and Darksiders II)

So in fact the Wii U is even LESS powerful than 6 and 7 year old hardware?


No, it just means reviewers need to stop being pretentious fools about graphics. If the graphics are in HD and at least Wii/GCN/PS2 quality or better, they have no justification to whine about it and need to move on to gameplay and story

No reviewer has said anything about the graphics.

And the Wii U Darksiders 2 review is copy pasted from the 360 review, so that part where the graphics were mentioned was from the 360 review.

I think it just has more to do with the fact that developers aren't as used to the Wii U's hardware as the 360's and PS3's. As such, they don't quite know all of the shortcuts they can use to make things work better on the console. Just give 'em time to get familiar with it.
