More a button-masher action title than an Adventure or RPG

Summary: The Zelda influence on this game was enough for me to enjoy it, and finish it. But the lack of precision in the combat, variety of attacks, and weak magic variety kept it from being better. Combat is button mashing friendly, combo-based combat, where precision is helpful, but far from required. Similar to GoW, but easier IMO, and not as varied. Magic is limited. Customization is virtually non-existent, and there is little leveling.
Summary: Let's put it this way. If you like to hack and Slash buy it. If you like to improve your weapons buy it. If you like a very interesting and Stray foward story buy it. A must buy if you want to have a good time. A good way to understand this tytle is to play it.
Summary: what a terrible game. Between the thousands of combinations of buttons to push to get anything done, the asinine puzzles, pointless weapons, random and occasional glitches, and the nonsensical storyline, i find little if any redeeming qualities to this game. Between all the God of War knockoffs, this is by far the worst.
Summary: This game is pretty cool after you get through ALL THE PUZZLES u have to spenda couple hours on puzzles and a couple minutes in fighting cmon man no wonder i didnt see any commercials for this game this game is perfect for action adventure puzzle gamers but action adventure gamers no if u wont a real game get these below
Summary: It seemed that little time was spent debugging, and testing Darksiders. The controlles were stiff and clumsy, though that didn't realy seem to interfier with game play. The puzzles were too simple up until the final castle. Darksiders did have a good story. The animation was average at best, but the writeing was probably the best part of the game. If they work these kinks out in the sequile, I'll play it.
Summary: It's a technically well-executed game with generally good graphic, art, detail... the bad guys are pretty scary. The sound is good. But these days "technically proficient" isn't quite enough, and other than an exaggerated drama based on some of the more psychedelic apocalyptic elements of Christian mythology.
No matter what anyone says this IS a god of war clone

Summary: I've read most of the reviews here, and the more recent ones are leaning towards a, "this isn't a god of war clone" review. I have to say, this IS God of War 3 with different characters. Just look at it, I mean honestly they didn't even change the animations much when you open chests, or when you glide, when enemies die, when you use the grappling chain thing, when you attack....
