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: 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: Good game. Very Zelda like as has been widely publicised. Really enjoyed it though there was the occasional control issue (jumping especially) but this didn't mar the overall experience. Also map could have been slightly improved with objectives shown more as got lost a few times and this really annoyed me.
Excerpt: Darksiders is a fantastic game. Sort of a cross between Devil May Cry and Zelda the game features a fair share of running around and thumping demons with a very large sword. It has a fairly lengthy single player campaign (15 hours) yet never becomes dull. The game continues to throw new surprises, new skills, weapons and enemies at you right up until the end. If it has any weaknesses it is that the game tries to do too much.
Excerpt: "Darksiders follows the story of War one of the horsemen of the apocalypse as he battles through an earth now littered with demons and angels that are all out to get him. The story begins with War descending on the planet earth (I think) as the apocalypse is beginning. In this short introduction you get to test out all of the controls. Soon with powers stripped War discovers that he tricked into being summoned to earth. This essentially sets up the ...

Summary: Derzeit jagt eine ersehnte Spieleveröffentlichung die Nächste und als geneigter Zocker kann man sich somit fast jeden Monat auf einen neuen Titel freuen. So erging es mir beispielsweise jüngst mit „God of War: Ascension“. Zutiefst enttäuscht legte ich das Spiel allerdings recht schnell zur Seite.
