Summary: Darksiders is a cross between mythology, an apocalypse, and the modern world. You play as War, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Most of the game really revolves around characters The Destroyer and Abaddon and treachery between worlds which alters War's life, but anyway this game is a hack and slash, puzzle-solver game.
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 your character to your play style based on the abilities you pick. You can focus on upgrading a small selection of abilities, or you can choose a lot of different abilities for ...
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: Don't get me wrong, I LOVED this game, but one of the biggest problems of the game: Game breakers. You know, glitches that will stop you from finishing the game. Mine was in the second dungeon while moving trains to solve a puzzle. The train piece WOULD NOT move, no matter what I did. I looked online and saw that there were MANY unique game breaking glitches that tons of people experienced. If you made it through, congrats.
Summary: Loving this game! Its parallel with God of war, not quite as good graphics as GOW3, storyline is pretty good, weapons are cool, gameplay is nearly identical. Facebook had a popup add recommending it according to the fact that I like GOW and the game had alot of good reviews, very happy with my purchase it is now my new game of the week(or two).
Summary: Not for the overly religious. Great graphics, although the cut scenes should have been high quality hd like the amazing opening scene. Solid gameplay. Borrows fighting elements from games like God of War and Devil May Cry. Some good dungeon crawling and puzzle solving. A few aggravating parts, mostly concerning cheap enemies or using special items. Plenty of fun weapons and upgrades. Good story and voice acting. $20 or less is a great deal.
adventure game, but with enough hack n slash to keep a short attention span
8 September 2011
Summary: I'd hate to date myself by saying this, but the last game I've played an action/adventure game, was prince of persia and the sands of time. I hated it, to be honest, these kinds of games just never really held a big place in my heart. I will say though, that after playing darksiders, my mind has not been changed at all, BUT, it is interesting enough to keep me wanting to play. I suppose if you like assassins creed, or anything like that, this will be right up your alley.
Summary: If you enjoyed the God of War series, you will definatly like Darksiders. Not just a hack n' slash, but weapons upgrades and a variety of special abilities. Great environments and large amounts of enemies to test your fighting skills. Everyone should have this game in their library.
Summary: Darksiders cleverly puts a twist on the Horsemen of the Apocalypse by using a well thought out story with familiar gameplay, similar to God of War or Prince of Persia, that most gamers can pick up and play without having to worry too much about a learning curve and can get right into the story. Darksiders is full of Angels, Demons, and many, many puzzles.
