Usually I am not a fan of games copying parts of other games instead of trying to do their own thing, however Darksiders is the exception to this.
Moody, don’t give a damn main character (with all his combat skills also) like God of War – Check! Gameplay of a Zelda game – Check! Portal gun from… well Portal – Check! Various movie/game quotes – Check!
All this adds up to one of the best games I have played for a few years, the 4 horsemen/heaven/hell type setting probably helps as it keeps things interesting but the gameplay keeps the game flowing and with only a few annoyances this game should of probably got more praise than it has.
If you are looking for a hack n slash adventure game (and even if you aren’t) then give Darksiders a go as I cannot rate it highly enough, I am glad to see there is a sequel coming… even if it is due in 2012
Playing ‘War’ has never been so much fun! Bravo Vigil Game, Bravo!
