7.5 / 10.0

If you haven't played Darksiders 2, the Deathinitive Edition is the best way to do so.

It's not original, and it's often unfocused, but Darksiders II remains one of the better Zelda clones – even if this slipshod remaster does it few favours.

I appreciate how the DLC content has been integrated into the Deathinitive Edition rather than being separated as it makes the gaming experience seamless. When the plethora of DLC content that includes powerful weapon packs, stunning armor sets, and cool extra missions are added to over twenty hours of gameplay, the result is a great deal for newcomers at only $30. However, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition doesn't offer much to attract anyone who has played the game before. For anyone who hasn't played the game, there's no better time than the present.

Had this been bundled with a remastered version of Darksiders, the package would be perfect. As it stands, it's just a slightly better version of an already brilliant game.
