Darksiders

Square-Go
28 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The great thing about Darksiders having so many clear influences is you get to have what you love about a great swathe of games in one place; the visceral satisfaction from God of War , the balletic combat of Devil May Cry and the gadget fuelled exploration of Zelda .

Expert Review

  • Summary: If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Darksiders is flattering the hell out of the last few years’ biggest hits. Zelda’s dungeon-oriented structure, God of War’s combat, and even a portal gun (?!) all figure prominently into Darksiders’ formula.

Darksiders PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Both Zelda and God of War are some of gaming’s most revered of franchises; and as a result they’ve been imitated, but their mechanics have rarely appeared side by side as a concoction in a single game.

Darksiders Review

  • Summary: With " Darksiders " being compared to a number of other games it was always a danger that it could fall short having been unfairly compared to such titles. What Darksiders offers though is a very enjoyable game in it’s own respect backed by a solid story and some excellent visuals.

Darksiders Review

  • Excerpt: To say that the combat in Darksiders is much like that of God of War and its dungeon design is a near-facsimile of modern Legend of Zelda games would be a fairly accurate description, but there is much more to this game than only simple analogies.

  • Conclusion: While Darksiders is an undeniably confident package, it’s a shame the developers have fallen back on a succession of barely disguised facsimiles from proven classics to fill in the mechanics of their game.

Darksiders (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
13 January 2010
  • Excerpt: They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that’s true then the developers of God of War and Legend of Zelda must be blushing from all the compliments they’ve gotten from Darksiders.

Darksiders Review

PlayStation Universe
11 January 2010
  • Summary: Darksiders is an action game borrowing heavily from God of War and Zelda. While it doesn't compete with either series, the game offers a healthy dose of fast combat, gratuitous gore, and overly drawn out puzzles and dungeons.
  • Pros: The gory finishing moves, The opening sequence, The moment War turns into a giant fiery beast
  • Cons: The repetitive gameplay, The invisible walls, The lack of originality
