    Darksiders II, originally released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in August 2012 and remastered in 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and Windows, was recently released for the Nintendo Switch on September 26th, 2019. This game has been on my radar ever since its initial release and is even in my PS Plus backlog; however, I just never got around to playing this game. When the Deathinitive Edition released for the Nintendo Switch, I added it to my wish list and even planned on putting on my Christmas list for 2019, in hopes of finally playing this game I've heard many people say was a Zelda-like experience.

    First, can I say this game looks absolutely wonderful in Handheld mode?! That is the mode I have been playing this game in the most and have been enjoying every moment of it. Like I said earlier, Yes, it does have Zelda-like experiences, but for me, it also reminded me of God of War's Action-adventure, hack and slash style of gameplay; especially like the God of War games, I completed back in the day on my PSP. I absolutely loved those games, as well as the console games as well. I love these style of games because I can jump right in, hack-and-slash the heck out of the bad guys in the game, but also enjoy some light-RPG elements in it, like Skill Trees and Weapon upgrades, and following a little bit of a story while I am at it.

    Speaking of story, this is number 2 in an ongoing series, right? Well, I never played the first game and I don't really care at this point. I do want to know more about what War did in the past game, which this game briefly touches on, but I feel I can visit that some other time! I just want to get through these creatures getting in my way of helping my four-horsemen brother out, at the same time, wondering if the sequel will ever make its way to the Switch. Hmm … But - no time for that. I must stay focus on this game and see it to its end!

    So far, the story has kept me wanting to learn more about the lore of what Death has gotten into here, the characters within in the game are fantastic, again, reminding me of characters I've seen in the God of War games I've played, and the game-play is my cup of tea! There is even a choice in that too! I can button mash combinations of buttons to take down foes or learn specific button combos to do more damage; especially to the bigger bosses on some of these levels.

    Would I buy this game at $30 USD? You bet I would! And I should have played this sooner, but maybe it is best that I didn't because now, I can appreciate it more. Based on my 1st impressions, if you are into this genre and haven't played this game before, this is a must-buy for the Nintendo Switch - portable and fun hack-and-slash game that doesn't need a lot of thought to play, unless you want to! This game is great for gamers who play a lot on the game, in small chunks because (1) The story isn't that deep to where you would forget a lot of details if you step away for too long, and (2) it has an Active Quest list to help keep you on track in case you forget what you were doing. It even has a fast-travel feature, allowing you to bounce around the map for supplies or to go back to places you may have missed, or even go back to places you couldn't access before - (GASP) a little Metroid Prime elements maybe? Mmm - maybe...
