Darksiders II (Wii U)

Game Profile

Follow the exploits of Death, horseman of the Apocalypse, in a tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game.

This epic journey propels Death through the light and dark realms as he strives to redeem his brother War, blamed for inciting Armageddon and the eradication of Mankind. Awakened by the End of Days, Death, the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen embarks on a quest to undo Armageddon. Along the way, the Horseman will discover that there are far worse things than an earthly Apocalypse, and that an ancient conflict threatens all of Creation. Become the terrifying force which everything fears but nothing can escape. Death Lives in Darksiders II.

  • Play Death – Become the most feared of the legendary Four Horsemen, able to destroy entire worlds and battle forces beyond Heaven or Hell.
  • Epic Universe – Unlike anything the player has seen before, delivered in the unique style of Joe Mad.
  • Player Choice & Customization – Thousands of weapon and armor items, three diverse specialisations, along with customizable Harbinger & Necromancer Skill Trees allow players to create their own Death.
  • Replay-ability – Side quests, vast open world, endless equipment combinations, Skill Tree customization and leveling system offer compelling reasons to play through Darksiders II again and again.
  • Traversal – Death is a nimble and agile character capable of incredible acrobatic feats allowing the player to explore the world like never before.
  • Unique Wii U GamePad Functionality – Play Darksiders II like never before using the Wii U GamePad screen to instantly access inventory and abilities.

They can't get rid of this game in Cora even though they reduced it's price to 9 euro! How is it possible that game rated 8/10 just does not sell?
