Darksiders 2 has some pretty insane combat, and nowhere will that really shine as much as in The Crucible.

The Crucible is an arena-style challenge that pits players against waves of increasingly difficult enemies and awards them with increasingly awesome prizes.

The catch? Every five waves, you can choose to bow out and accept a reward, or keep pushing on. But if you die before reaching the next fifth wave, you go home with a whole lot of nothing.

Watch out for our full Darksiders 2 review this week. In the meantime, what do you think about The Crucible? See yourself spending a lot of time there climbing ever-higher? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter.
