Summary: Lots of puzzles, pretty standard soul currency and stuff like that, awesome enemies and awesome boss fights. Only thing I didn't like was there WAS a few glitches/bugs that were so big you'd have to restart the part of the mission to get it to work. Lots of ways to kill enemies (A few weapons, gear, special abilities), it's fun. Trophies are fun to chase, graphics are good for how old the game is, and is definitely a game worth playing.
Summary: This game is pretty linear and probably about 15 hours. You play as War, one the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse who is out for redemption. Call the gameplay a ripoff of God of War, but it's still fun. Hacking and slashing your way through hoards of enemies is awesome. There are also puzzle elements thrown in the mix that I didn't care for. I like puzzles, I just didn't think these were very good, but the combat makes up for it. The story is much better than most games.
Summary: After the point when i heard about Darksiders, i heard a lot of hate about the game as well. People said it was a God of War/Zelda ripoff, and some people even put Darksiders down for their opinion for worst game. I was a little shocked cause the game looked interesting enough, and with Darksiders II looking awesome, i figured this game can't be that bad. Now that I've played through it, i actually enjoyed it quite a bit.
Summary: I bought this game being somewhat skeptical and took the chance mainly because of the sequel that is due for release soon, but darksiders did not disappoint. The gameplay is smooth and responsive, the story is intriguing, the characters are interesting, the graphics are good. The only thing I didn't care for are the limited amount of different moves you can do with all 3 weapons. Hopefully they raise that bar in the sequel. Overall very fun game.
Excerpt: So I stumbled across the Darksiders 2 Death Lives CGI the other day and after spending all my time on FPS games I thought "This is exactly the change I need". So I went and bought Darksiders to test the formula.
Summary: Yes everyone has been comparing this game to God of War and Zelda. I agree. The combat is a mixture between the two, and puzzles seem to lean more towards Zelda. Now is this a bad thing? No, not at all! Darksiders is one of those games that draws heavy inspiration from past great games, and re-utilizes its most impressive features to its own advantage. All in all, Darksiders is fantastic, and I'll state why below.
Summary: Darksiders is definitely a great game flying under the radar. At the start it is your typical hack and slash game but as you get further along, you can see most mini-bosses and bosses have their own strategies to be beat and this is where the fun starts. The story is OK overall, but I liked the ending. The apocalyptic difficulty gets easier as you go along so if you're looking for a quick pick-me-up for around 20-25 hours, go with the highest difficulty.
Summary: Darksiders is a perfect game for those who enjoyed the same kind of game play as the god of war trilogy. The game story was a little less than original. The whole concept of he underworld against Heaven is somewhat cliche; although it brings a whole new story and character to the table. War, the apocalyptic horseman was accused of begging a war between heaven and the underworld.
Summary: This was a very fun game until I had beaten it and it was over. There is absolutely no replay value unless you want all the trophies. A very good action RPG lacking in unlockable or downloadable content. Play it once. No reason to play it again and for that I award it 4 Stars instead of 5.
