Summary: This game's story is a god of war rip off. you play a mythical being who breaks some oath and loses his powers, so you go killing people to get them back. The gameplay is fun but gets repetitive. The puzzles are meh at best and did not challenge me very ,much at all. The boss battles are fun and make you think on your feet. this is a game for people who want god of war on xbox.
Summary: Darksiders is a fun game. Easy and simple and if you are a bit more than a casual gamer then this game if for you. If you are a hardcore Devil May Cry - Ninja Gaiden gamer, this one will be VERY frustrating. There's a lot of walkaround which can become very boring. Also, puzzles arent complicated, they dont need brainwork, they just demand a lot of work (and time) to solve. I expected a little more from a 17+ game.
Pros: Awesome Hack/slash game during the first hour of play.
Cons: This game quickly took a turn for the worst. It started as a fast paced action packed hack/slash then slowed to a crawl with Puzzles. I dont mind a few clever puzzles here and there but these are mind numbing and pointless.
Summary: killing zombies is a good thing.. killing dragons was annoying.. throwing globs of exploding goo.. not so fun... i really hate find the key to the door type games.. and this game is one of them.. Except the key to the door is a Sword.. 1st level had 1 sword.. level 5 has 3 swords.. i did not want to go through all that just to open a door.. the hell with it.
Summary: This game is okay. I don;t HATE it, but it's definitely pretty hack-n-slash. The puzzles and bosses are pretty lame. If you're looking for a better game along the lines of this one, Dante's Inferno was better. Although it has some of the same issues with the difficulty being toooo easy.
i thought it was gonna be great but it was kinda a let down

Summary: I saw the preview for the game, the trailers, even read some stuff about it to Then the day came and i played it...Like i said its a let down. In the beginning the graphics and the first scene is VERY NICE i gotta admit but after the graphics look like Ps2 kinda graphics but just in HD (if you have it).
Where the other games in this genre do finesse and combos, this game just does hack and slash.

Summary: I bought the game after reading all these 10 of 10 reviews and now I am seriously considering returning it. This game is basically a more cartoony version of devil may cry / ninja gaden with way, way more blood. Honestly, this game is one of the worst I have played in a while. Where the other games in this genre do finesse and combos, this game just does hack and slash.Challenge:I was playing the game on the hardest difficulty, so this gets a bit higher rating.
Summary: I have been playing this game since it came out and overall the cut scenes are okay, the story is simple, the characters are kind of lame (war does not look impressive and the character ulthane looks like he came off of disney), the music is almost non-existent, the stages feel like unending labyrinths (some areas you can't ride your horse), and honestly the fun factor is really not there because the puzzles are hard and even if you play it on easy the baddies are...
Summary: I recently ordered this game after reading some good reviews and seeing the game, it looked awesome. I am a little bit disapointed as it wasnt exactly what I was expecting. The game could have had some better ingame graphics instead of just good cinematics. Was a little bit cartoony for me but then again I was expecting a game that looked like Dante's Inferno.
