We're still not particularly enamoured with Darksiders' art direction.

Make no mistake, the original was a fine game, but we're not really sure it's deserving of the praise that it gets. We think back to the game's art direction and want to cry. Ugliest game of the generation so far? We think so.

It's probably fair to say, then, that we're not the biggest fans of the Vigil Games developed series. But given our opinion of the original, we have to admit that this brand new trailer for Darksiders II is pretty darn rad. It's agonisingly light on details, but as a mood piece, it's fantastic. It's such a shame that the final game's certain to be about as subtle as a lobbed brick. Yep, we can picture the Iron Maiden record sleeve artwork already. Sigh.
