Summary: SUMMARY: Chapter 1... BOOM, I am WRATH. The First Horseman. This Game is AWESOME!!!! Everyone is lame compared to me! WOO! Chapter 2... okay it is still kind of cool, a little slow. Sure its reminiscent of god of war for the ps2. heck maybe GOW2 had better graphics. I'm sure it gets better. Horse is kind of cool and all. Chapter 3 to End ... wow it didn't get better. It got worse.
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.
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: This is an average game at best. It starts out really slow and builds up as you go through out the game. I read somewhere that this game is like Zelda...... it is nothing like Zelda, so if you are looking for that don't buy this game.
Summary: Darkstalkers is an action-based beat 'em up game. Gameplay similar to God Of War. Just less...good. Solving basic puzzles and such to move foward and regular boss battles. Nothing really special about it. Graphics are fine and the gameplay sways well.
Summary: This game is an outstanding action / adventure game, with great weapons, magic, great story, and with decent difficulty... but I recommend renting before buying this game to make sure this is what you want... this games seems to be the xbox 360's attempt to make something to compete with the God of War games... but a great 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: Darksiders is reasonably entertaining for 2 or 3 hours, but feels like it should have been made in 2002 rather than 2010. It feels like McFarlane puked all over Zelda and they packaged the result. Some decent platforming-RPG action, but nothing new or inventive.
Summary: I really thought that I was going to like Darksiders. The combat started off fast and satisfying, Mark Hamil voiced a lead role, and War kicked tons of ass. 2 hours into the game though, the combat was already stale, Mark Hamil wasn't given anything interesting to say, and War was a bit of a jerk. Darksiders "borrows" from several, better, games, but never fully utilizes what it takes. Lets start with the combat.
Summary: What would you get if God of War and Zelda decided to have a baby? It would be Darksiders. This game is an Action RPG in which you control one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse named War. You're goal is to seek vengeance and clear your name. You have been framed for starting the Apocalypse and you must rectify the situation or face the Charred Council's wrath.
