Darksiders 2

Release: June for 360/PS3/PC/Wii U

In the tradition of the Batman: Arkham series and, well, Zelda, Darksiders riffs on Zelda like it's going out of style (which it most certainly is not). Still, its blend of dungeon exploration with God of War-inspired combat and epic Biblical storytelling had us sold on the first game, and the second can hardly disappoint with freaking Death as the main character.
