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: 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: 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: 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.
Summary: Although Darksiders doesn't add anything new to the Action RPG genre, it does deliver what others have done right. The graphics are good but not the best the story is OK but doesn't cause you to burst into tears or scream in exultant jubilation. What makes Darksiders shine is the Game-play! It has been a long time since I have played a game I enjoyed playing this much. The controls are responsive and varied allowing for multiple play styles.
Summary: Yes, this game does remind me a lot of God of War, Dante's Inferno, and ect. however the storyline is exceptional. There were a few bugs as far as buttons not responding to commands and and enemy getting stuck in the environment here or there but it wasn't enough to make a huge difference. Loved the graphics, gameplay, and most of all...again the storyline. I'm hoping they make another one with his counterparts joining him for "WAR.
Summary: Pros Combat is fluid Beautiful graphics Wide array of weaponry to use and play around with Fun bosses Cons Story is thin and predictable Complicated control system Summary Although it does nothing new to the Action/Adventure genre, Darksiders does a great job at taking the combat elements of God of War and the exploration and puzzle solving and exploration from Legend of Zelda and putting them together in this game; only falling short when it comes to story.

Summary: Have you played any of the God of War games? Have you played The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time? If you said yes to either, or better yet, both, and liked them, then you will most likely enjoy this game. This game takes some of the strongest elements from each game, such as the excellent combat of God of War or the immersive puzzles and boss battles of The Legend of Zelda.
