Massive disappointment story wise

So I just finished the game and while I really like the game play, I feel like the developers really fucked up with the story.

I had just replayed Darksiders before this came out and I really enjoyed the story, but Darksiders 2 does not have anywhere near as good a story.

To be honest I can't think of a single thing this adds to the story of the first game. I suppose it fleshes out the universe a bit and Death is a cool character but it's such a letdown after the first game. The last boss is pretty pathetic as well.

Overall I did like the game and I will probably play through again but is anyone else feeling like this?

@Tennmuerti: link is dead

@Heltom92: I thought the story was good enough for what it was. It's Death's story. Not the story of the Apocalypse, not War's Deaths. It's building up to something bigger (with Lillith and the Prince of Darkness, which got slightly more time than it did in the first Darksiders mind you and this conspiracy is what the overall story is for the series) and I'm ok if its doing that by giving me a different character to follow and their journey there.

The last boss did suck though.

@Scarlet_Rogue: Yea I came in knowing that it wasn't going to follow on from the awesome ending of the first game but I just didn't find the story to be engaging at all really. I don't like how rushed the ending felt either.

I don't know about the rest of the game but I just beat the first large boss and I am really struggling to continue. This game has entirely failed to grip me. Not sure why.
