A mix of Zelda and Metroid leads to repetitive boring segments

Summary: The Good: Zelda style puzzles are fun to solve, looks great, decent story, fluid combat The Bad: Zelda puzzles are too frequent, story is hard to follow, could have looked better, gets redundant after about three hours Norse mythology. That's what drew me to Darksiders, but don't just jump into this thinking it's a God of War clone. In fact its a mix of Zelda exploration and puzzle solving, and combat similar to God of War, but not as good or as epic.
Summary: Great game only held back by out of place puzzles.
Pros: Awesome Hack/slash game during the first hour of play. -Cool main character -fun upgrade system - plenty of moves to master
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: 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.
Excerpt: I'm not much of a Hack N Slash gamer. If I need a Hack N Slash fix I'll just stick Devil May Cry in and bang around on that for a little bit til I get bored and go back to my [insert any other genre here]. So when a friend told me to play Darksiders I was a little dubious but as he bought me a copy (he wanted me to play it THAT much) I didn't have much to lose.
Summary: Fun game combining elements of so many good video games, most notably Zelda, but also a bit of Portal. Doesn't add much, doesn't change much and that's a good thing. Visuals are good, the story line somewhat forgettable though. A bit of backtracking for treasure hunting, not too much though and it is not too tedious.

Summary: If you love games with a seriously wicked storyline and an interesting host of characters then this one may well keep you enthused for a good long time. There's a serious amount of game time, a good amount of quirks and above all else a story arc that will keep you fighting your way through to the last. The major downside is that the graphics aren't as good as they could have been and felt a little blocky.
a good no brainer game. Lots of chopping and fighting not the most thinking and decission making!

Excerpt: Darksiders is about a war which has been unleashed upon the world by someone unknown... Framed by 'someone unknown' one of the 4 horsemen of the apocolypse is on a mission to fin dout who has set this scandal up and get his powers back! The game has good graphics and the fighting controls and visuals are great. It's really fun to run around smashing things with huge swords and pulling impressive finishing moves on monsters four times your size!
Excerpt: Ok let me start with this game requires not much time to complete so if your looking for a quick game to complete and also as a bonus looking for 1000/1000 gamer score then this game is one that you must buy. Has excellent game play much like dantes inferno, god of war and devil may cry. Is an excellent hack n slash game and I haven't played one as good as this in a very long time.
