A mix of Zelda and Metroid leads to repetitive boring segments

Richard Baker "BinaryMessiah", Amazon
28 March 2012
  • 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.

To many Puzzles for my liking

  • 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.

Okay if you're bored

  • 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.

  • Summary: pretty good and entertaining, even though the game gets repetitive. But the combat mode is very cool : a real a true beat-them-all + little brain needed for the castles

Not what I expected

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 January 2012
  • 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.

Zelda meets Cartoon Hero

Andi, Amazon
3 February 2011
  • 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.
