Darksiders: Reviewed (360, PS3)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: To say that the combat in Darksiders is much like that of God of War and its dungeon design is a near-facsimile of modern Legend of Zelda games would be a fairly accurate description, but there is much more to this game than only simple analogies. Although very little is truly original about Darksiders, the final product carves out its own unique identity by successfully combining, and in many cases refining, the elements of all the works from which it borrows, and the...

Darksiders PC Review

AtomicGamer
30 September 2010
  • Excerpt: If you are the type to believe that most games are just shameless copies of other, better games, then it'd be easy to call Darksiders , after a few minutes playing, a copy of God of War . In those minutes, it's easy to see: tough, gruff, stern protagonist kills forces that gods send at him with an arsenal of medieval weapons, melee combos, fantasy spells, and ranged attacks, with most of the focus on high-flying melee combos.

  • Excerpt: Last December, I got the chance to play Darksiders just before its retail release at a hotel in Los Angeles, and afterward, to talk at length with the guys who made it. It's an unusual approach to game promotion; usually, you either get a very carefully controlled sample of the gameplay along with access to the developers, or somebody mails you a disc. It's rare that you get both at once.

Darksiders

Game Over Online
3 February 2010
  • Excerpt: I first heard of Darksiders at E3 2007, the show where we spent most of our time getting shuttled between hotels. It was described then as a "dark Zelda ," and looked remarkably generic. I remember almost nothing about the presentation. The game simply faded into the background next to other THQ titles, particularly Supreme Commander .

  • Summary: A very good game overall. There is some senseless running back and forth, but they give you a quick transport option. Fantastic graphics and sound and pretty solid gameplay.

Darksiders

Xbox Evolved
23 January 2010
  • Summary: There's absolutely no reason for you to not check out Vigil Games' Darksiders. Joe Mad's artistry mixed in with game elements from many of your favorite franchises equals yet another good entry into the action adventure genre worthy of your attention.
  • Pros: Successful blend of various game elements, unique world and character design, fluid combat
  • Cons: Not very challenging, boss battles that don't live up to the suspense

Darksiders: Wrath of War

Xbox 360 achievements
19 January 2010
  • Conclusion: This game is a pleasant surprise and will keep you hooked while it lasts. Sure the story may be pure hokum, but the gameplay is rock solid. This is Zelda for a more mature audience and is yet another great January release – who'da thunk it?

‘Darksiders’ adds nothing new to action gaming

STLtoday
15 January 2010
  • Conclusion: For everyone else, however, “Darksiders” sheds no new light on the single-player, action-adventure genre, or on the end-of-world theme. If anything, this game resembles a greatest-hits compilation — like those “best of the ’70s soft-rock” CDs advertised all over late-night television.Personal music taste notwithstanding, those aren’t too bad, either.
