Darksiders 1 didn't run very badly it was just quite tedious.

Metacritic says that each edition holds a critical review above 80 and all but the PC version holds a User score of above 8.
Mine arrives on Tuesday so I'll see then.

I'll take a good port over a good collector's edition any day of the week.

Before I spent a cent on this one I'm going to try out one way or the other to make sure it isn't another tomb raider clone as the previous one was. I really didn't like DS1 especially the parts you need to train your shit by killing X with Z sometimes in Y mins, they really could have taken those out, which imho was only there to stretch game play. it brings nothing.

There’s some bad news too, I’m afraid. To call the port half-assed is an insult to chopped up donkeys everywhere. The graphics options are minimal, and the menus are utterly insane if negotiated with a mouse. In fact, you can’t go “back” with a mouse at any point, despite the buttons appearing on the screen. The game doesn’t even offer a “Start New Game” option, instead asking you to load one of three saved games, all blank obviously. And that’s after making sure you’ve been warned that it’s going to auto-save, and not to switch off your PC mid-save, every time you load it.
There’s no option to switch between keyboard/mouse and 360 controls, so if you want to play without your controller, you’re going to have to unplug it before you start the game. That’s just abysmal. Although honestly, despite there being adequate options for traditional PC controls, it’s a game obviously designed to be played on a pad, and I strongly recommend you do.

Meh, it's not optimal but seems more or less the same as the original Darksiders, that didn't exactly have many settings. Also saying 'it looks like ass' is a bit silly. It's still going to look better than console. The mouse menu navigation thing is a bit concerning but good thing I have no intention of using anything other than a gamepad.
Putting down the entire game for some technical issue is rather drastic.
