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.
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. The graphics are great, if not outstanding, and the enemies are well-animated. There's never any slow-down, and the character models move smoothly.
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: Great game. Love the story line so far and I am addicted to it atm. It does get a little repetitive and the introduction isn't that great. I think it gets interesting right after the introduction type stuff. Overall great game. Love it so far!
Summary: cool designs, crazy demons vs angels story, once i started playing, I couldn't stop. i enjoyed it more than I did God of War 3. that game had the graphics but the plot & gameplay were meh. i only gave it 4 stars because the bar is set high by Ninja Gaiden 2 & Bayonetta, but this gets a strong 4 stars. & i wish it had game plus, so you can replay & keep powering up.
Summary: My son got me to purchase this game for him, but prior to that I had never heard of it...and I'm not sure how. It is a great game. The graphics are appealing, the game play is more than adequate, the cut-scenes are just dazzling. We've played A LOT of the third-person, single-player, action/adventure games (the Devil May Cry series, Batman A.A., Prince of Persia, God of War, etc), but this one kept me interested.
Summary: I was looking for something similar to God of War to play and I have to say this did more than that for me. Some have compared the game to Zelda and I can see why. Gameplay and Combat: You can do many things in the game due to the abilities that you will receive. There's 3 weapons you can use and it's fun. The only bad thing about the controls is the dash and block button are the same. I liked the combat in the game. The only lack I saw was not many combos.
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!), and it serves both play styles admirably. - The dungeons are large, involve lots of clever but not overly taxing puzzles, and feature great boss fights.
