The Legend of War
24 November 2013
Excerpt: "The Four Horsemen: it’s a topic that hasn’t much been explored in games, so it’s nice to see that 2010 title Darksiders focusses on such a unique area. I bought the game years ago but, unfortunately, I restarted it several times, struggling to get into it. I recently tried it once again, and it turned out to be a lesson in patience. Get past the mediocre first hour or so and you are treated to a glorious and enticing world with great gameplay. It ...
Pros: Unique concept; brutal and satisfying combat; challenging puzzles; superb graphics and sound .
Cons: Mediocre start; maybe a bit too long; no New Game + .
Excerpt: "This is a great game if you enjoy others such as God of War, Dantes Inferno and Devil May Cry. You play as War, one of the legendary Four Horsemen, who has been tricked into coming to earth and this triggering the apocalype. The council accuse War of causing the apocalype and as a result, strip him/you of all your powers. The game basically evolves around War trying to regain all his powers, whilst at the same time trying to figure out why the apocalype ...
Pros: good graphics, easy to control, good amount of gaming for your money - fun !
Excerpt: To all those who maybe put off by the first 15 minutes hack and slash affair; give it slightly longer. I started off not particularly enjoying it, but as the game progresses, more skill becomes necessary in combat, not to mention some clever, entertaining puzzles. Give it a chance, and you might just discover an excellent all round experience. However, don't expect an engaging or engrossing story-line.
Excerpt: Simplemente Fantastico!! Well written, well executed and well planned game. Inspired by Zelda this game will keep you busy for hours and its solid fun! The plot just keeps on getting better, keeps its grip strong and the more strong you become, the more fun you get. Can not wait to get my hands on the sequel (2012),which probably will have MP.
Excerpt: It certainly borrowed heavily from Zelda in the dungeon sections and some of the fighting started to become an inconvenience. As you would expect the comic book graphics were great and overall pretty fun to play - just hoping the sequal has tighter level design and adds some character to the overall game
Excerpt: Good fast paced game, levelling up seems clumsy and could easily be slightly tweaked to make it more enjoyable. Battle seems monotomous sometimes especially when the prescripted "lock ins" occur. However all round good solid game. Enough to burn some time before god of war 3 comes out and a much more original game than dantes inferno.
Excerpt: Despite a couple of bugs in the game (I fell through the world twice during my time playing) this is a very good game, which is unexpected for a game which is both a new IP and a mash up of many genre's. Good story, Fun to play, a solid 25 hours if you fully complete.
Excerpt: What an amazing game. I was hooked after an hour. the game gets better and better as you go on so i suggest sticking at it for a bit because you will enjoy it. Its a bit of a dark horse it should have been nominated for game of the year. cant wait for a second intallment.
Excerpt: Really good game. Like God of War only a little less graphically smooth. A game I expected nothing from as I hadnt played any demo's or read anything about, just took a chance and it paid off. Well worth a go.
