Okay so I'm playing Darksiders 2 now. First the seeds were so low it took me half a day. Then I realized there is also a Deathinitive edition with better stuff and dlcs. I had already started the regular one so I kept going at it while deathinitive downloaded. I could barely run the normal game at 60 fps and I didn't know deathinitive has graphical upgrades, so I couldn't even get stable 30fps. Well back to normal version.
I have to say this feels nothing like the Warmastered from 1. The visuals are very pretty, traversing the levels are fun and music is so good it doesn't match the tone of game. It really feels like a fantasy adventure game. Combat is slicker, though I don't get frequent the weapon drops of just changed stats, which serves only to fill inventory and sell later. I do feel like movement and controls could be more polished, animations look janky at times. Enemies need more variety, and so far I'm seeing normal hammer wielding enemies, normal crawling lizard enemies, driller boss which become a normal miniboss later and big bosses. Please tell there are more variety.
Sidequests are just go there and fetch this, im not expecting a full rpg type quests. Dungeons? I think its the right word, are beautiful and wonderful to explore, but am not finding secret areas, just these wooden ring hooked onto walls which I think I will get a tool to grab onto. Death is also a very cool character, I like his voice.
