You mean you love the game? If that's the case, yeah Darksiders universe is amazing. And yeah, sometimes people consider the "requirements", but they are always a Bit higher IMO.

Sometimes the devs will overstate the minimum specs just to hedge their bets against angry customers who might just meet the minimum but still have trouble running the game. On the other hand, some devs report minimum specs that will barely load the game menu, and not really run the game sufficiently at all. That's why sites like GD are so valuable for PC gamers with older or budget systems.

Nope his face is not visible, he is wearing some sort of mask, to express shame for killing all the people of his own race, except his other 3 brothers :D

Adryan, I said Other 3 brothers, with Death that's four horsemen. And famine doesn't appear on Darksiders universe, it's Fury instead, and it's a female character :D so that would be brothers and sister

I am eagerly waiting this game since I finished DarkSiders I. Can't wait to see how Death Fights. I felt War was slow. Lets test Death by then :) Hope there is a third part featuring Conquest. !
Lets see how will be the graphics. and I am sure the game will be optimized hence the requirements we see.

Yea. From the gameplay walk-troughs, the graphic looks slick and Death's moves 'look' faster. And as Raystlyn said, the conquest is there and named Strife. With this, all your doubts are covered ;)

Death can't block like war, but he can do barrel-roll ;) and yeah he is a lot faster than War. There's a skill tree that enhances movement and speed as well.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II was also capped at 30 FPS for some unexplainable reason. Don't you just love it when game makers have no fundamental understanding of their customers?
