Question: how is Darksiders 2?

Title. The more I look at it, the more interested I'm getting

Also, do I need to play the first one to understand the story?

It certainly helps. And both the games are great.

First one wasn't terrible, I could finish it. The 2nd was just dreadful. Talk about a game that has no idea what it wants to be.

The gameplay and level design in DS2 is stellar. The story isn't great though. It's definitely worth getting.

For the 5 bucks I paid for both bundled together it was a decent enough game. Wouldn't buy it off sale though

I'm inclined to agree. The first one was actually better.

Forgot to ask, but how are the PC versions for both games? How playable are they with KB+M?

Also, I've seen quite a few video reviews, but Death can only dual-wield scythes? I've not seen a video review of him wielding a scythe with 2-hands. Only hammers.

they controlled fine on K/M from what i remember.

as for the games i really enjoyed 1 more. 2 has better combat and systems, but it drags on WAY too long and 1/3 of it feels like pointless filler with one of the worst dungeons iv ever experienced. Its still good overall, but it overstayed its welcome by about 10hours. Story i also didnt find to be as interesting as the firsts.

Currently playing: Darksiders - Doom 3 - Dark Souls

Darksiders is one of the best modern series around. I would definitely recommend playing both, because they are in the same universe, but different types of games. Each game focuses on a different Horseman who have their own style, which is reflected in the game play. The original Darksiders (featuring War) is one of the best Zelda clones around, focusing on puzzle solving and a slightly slower fighting style. Darksiders II (featuring Death) is more platforming and faster action, with some Prince of Persia influences. It also features a satisfying loot system. Both games are worthy of a play through.
