Enthralling Fantasy RPG for Older Teens
Darksiders II is an intense, dark fantasy role-playing game in which the player assumes the role of Death (in itself this is quite a dark notion) and attempts to save his brother War. There are lots of different enemies to fight in the game, some living others machine-like. The machine-like ones just shatter when killed while the living enemies spray lots of blood each time they are hit. In saying that, the blood is very animated, with a very unrealistic feel as opposed to games like Lord of the Rings: War in the North and Counter-Strike. Overall a fun game that is easy to play with and in depth story.
*NOTE* The Australian classification of Darksiders 2 is MA15+ for Strong Bloody Violence.
(Recent Edit: Increased learning potential to Fair due to the frequent puzzle solving the game requires, something i forgot to mention earlier. The game is only about 1/6 combat, the rest of the time is spent exploring and solving puzzles in dungeons, some of them quite mind-bending)
