At like 3/4th through Darksiders 2, I can say now that it is not as good as the first game, and is actually somewhat boring to a point where I'm just trying to get through it, skipping the side dungeons and stuff.
The reason it's so boring is because of the simplistic combat combined with extremely overpowered gear. Having simplistic combat with challenge is good, having overpowered gear with required combos/abilities to beat enemies is good, but both overpowered gear + simplistic combat = square square square square square R1 to dodge, square square square, with 0 fear of dying even on bosses.
The puzzles are also way too easy, yawning level of easy, makes me appreciate the first game more and more importantly, the Zelda titles. It's worth a rent, maybe even worth a buy if you were a big Darksiders fan, but as a fan I am very disappointed.
Once I finish this up, not sure what I will play. It's been sort of confirmed that The Walking Dead Ep 3 will be out this month, so hopefully that comes out around the time I beat it.
