I am totally taken aback by how amazing the production values are.

The music on it is quite good, especially in the opening level.

I owned the 360 version before this version, and let me say this -

Lossless audio (Wii U) > Dolby Digital 5.1 (360). Everything sounds so much clearer on the Wii U version.

Framerate is also better as well. I noticed hiccups on the 360 version when playing through the opening level, but in the same spots on Wii U, it's gone.

I dunno, the frame rate in large open areas seems pretty bad...

I think that echoes what Digital Foundry was saying. I have the PS3 version but I never finished it. They need to figure out that just because you made the areas larger doesn't mean that makes them better.

I got bored with the game and that silly weapon eating stuff. I might complete it some day.

lol, enjoy your menu.

When you get to the third large area, the developers forgot to add enemies and some textures, it's pretty laughable. The game completely drops off the graph at this point. They made 75% of a game.

On the Wii U version? I hadn't heard anything about this. That's like the whole Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver incident where they left out the last third of the game but didn't tell the gamers before they sold it to everyone. We were all trying to find the Vampire Queen, I think, only to find out weeks later that it wasn't even in the game. The devs finally fessed up. :(

No, on every version. They rushed the title out for whatever reason.

Sad that you'll likely never see another Darksiders.

I've never heard of this before. Are there any YouTube videos of this? I'll check. Someone would have posted this type of fiasco.

It's not gamebreaking but..

You need to play to the point in the game to understand, there's a 100% noticeable lack of effort at the third area. Quests begin to just say go here get this 3x and then do the same for 2 other people, move on. The enemies are sparse, the textures seriously are poor, it's like the areas were given a quick paint job.
