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.

A decent port of a good game let down by technical issues.

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.

A by-the-numbers remaster, and one that would've benefited from a bit more love. For those who just wanted to see what all the fuss was about on their Xbox One or PS4, however, it suffices.

Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition is the best way to play the game, but offers little reason for veteran players to revisit Death's lengthy adventure.

Might be worth a double dip — it's every bit as fun as you remember, and this version comes with all of the bells and whistles, as well as rebalanced combat, tighter controls, and better loot tables. There are some framerate hitches to go along with the graphical and lighting overhaul, and there isn't a whole lot new here, but if you missed out the first time, don't let this one pass you by.
