Summary: In the combat, Button-mashers will find a lot to like. Newcomers will quickly feel at home with the combat setup. Experts won't feel like they are jogging around a dumped down rail-fighter. Combos are expressive & fun to achieve, & their resulting effects are satisfyingly brutal.
Summary: A great game. Perhaps between God of War and Zelda it failed to catch the public's attention, but behind familiar genres lies a completely unique experience. As much as the combat is repetitive, it is fun from start to end, similar to God of War.
Summary: From the opening sequence to the end of the game, it's a solid action/adventure game. It plays very much like Legend of Zelda or Castlevania in that you have to collect certain items and can revisit previous areas to explore for hidden or previously unattainable treasure.
Summary: I enjoyed the game up until the point that I got stuck on the big spider boss.
Pros: I bought this game because I had heard that it was, at its heart, a lot like recent Legend of Zelda games. This is true. There is a big world to explore, a good selection of equipment to find, a good story, and some excellent voice acting. Combat is fast and fun. I liked the way you can tailor yo...
Cons: Some of the boss fights are unfairly challenging. I don't mind a challenge, but on a few occasions the boss fights were just cheap. I was actually unable to finish the game because of this.
Summary: An exceptional game but no one without faults. First of all, Darksiders has a pretty decent story and pretty GOOD characters for all you RPers however the set design is really its biggest down fault.
Can't get enough Zelda-style action? Look no further.

Summary: I will admit that this game is probably a lesser version of the play-styles found in the Zelda and God of War series. That being said, it's the only game that combines clever dungeons with fast-paced combat (if you can think of others, please let me know, I can't get enough of them!
Summary: Sure is one of the best games of the era. Deep, graphically satisfying, with a length that would put to shame most of the big players. A really good game that deserves its rating. Well, come to think of it it deserves even a bit more.
Summary: This game is amazing... I love the puzzles and combat. One thing that was a little iffy was the targeting system, sometimes hard to deal with but only in certain situations. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys action games like devil may cry or god of war.
Summary: This is the best Zelda game I have played in years, as it takes the gameplay that made titles such as Ocarina of Time so great and throws it into a new environment of a violent, war-torn apocalypse of present.
Summary: I only picked up this game due to a recommendation of my friend. It seemed interesting enough, and I could tell it was trying to be like God of War or Zelda. But the key word in that statement is trying. It isn't necessarily a bad game, it just isn't as good as what it tries to be.
