Darksiders II really is a great game. It just has an unfortunate tendency to break; little annoying bugs and glitches are all too common.
However, the fans were vocal about such issues and developer Vigil Games has listened. According to a new forum post by a THQ community manager, a new update patch for the highly regarded sequel will be coming soon . Ideally, we'll see it this month.
As you can see, the changelog is full of bug fixes, such as Death accidentally falling through the world during boss fights within Argul's Tomb, and various issues that involve Death, Constructs, or Construct balls getting stuck. Reading through the list, it's clear that the game suffers from more than its fair share of infuriating problems; I'm familiar with a few myself. One of the most vexing involved a puzzle in The Nook; you drop a couple spike gates to allow a Construct ball to come down a ramp, which you then use to open a door. …sadly, I had no ball.
There were also multiple times when I very nearly got stuck or the game almost froze or something downright silly happened. So yeah, this patch is necessary. Game still rules, though.
