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.
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: Darksiders have a lot of things that we can see in the games mencionated above. Darksiders have combat style like GOW and TLoZ combined. The Dungeon and puzzle are like TLoZ style. The thing is that for me is not a bad thing cause GOW and TLoZ are two of the BEST GAMES ever created, so Darksiders just took the best form the best games and put together in this game. I personally recomend this to anyone that have play TLoZ or GOW or boths cause is a good game.
Summary: The story is pretty good and the action is fulfilling. The one thing I didn't like was the puzzles, puzzles just bore me and some of the puzzles in the game were very frustrating to the point were i had to look them up online(games get frustrating when you have to go online to figure out how to get something done), but if you're a fan of puzzle games and Hack & Slash you will love this.
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: I like this game, but its not original. This game rippes alot of things from the God of War/ Zelda series. You have the combos, melee finishers, and the puzzles are very simila to GOW. Darksiders also include Zelda like dungeons and weapons, and the events seem familiar like you used it before in another game. This game does include interesting characters, but the story is not all that interesting like God of War 3 or Zelda Twilight Princess.
