Thoroughly Enjoyable Action/Adventure Series in One Set

XZero, Amazon
27 January 2015
  • Summary: The Darksiders Collection is a combination of the original discs for both Darksiders and Darksiders 2 in one case along with a DLC voucher for Darksiders 2's DLC content. The voucher did not work for a while but was recently fixed, so now fans can enjoy the whole game if they want. Before going any further, I'll note that this review attempts to be as objective as possible in discussing both games.

Adventure Perfection

  • 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.

Instant favorite

  • 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.

Excellent Game, But a Bit Tough

Anonymous, Newegg
4 October 2012
  • 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 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.

Can't get enough Zelda-style action? Look no further.

Dante1138, Amazon
2 April 2012
  • 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.

Amazing but no game is perfect

Myrph, Amazon
30 July 2011
  • 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.

its zelda

Thomas K., Newegg
7 March 2011
  • Summary: weird game melding fictional use of biblical themes and characters with Zelda: Ocarina of Time all the way down to using a hook shot and riding around a pony but everything is run down and on fire populated with demons instead of happy trees and rainbows and fuzzy wuzzies. Also weird is that (like Okami), its a better Zelda game than Nintendo has been able to manage since Ocarina of Time.
  • Pros: Its Zelda! An angry, serious, and violent Zelda. well done and enjoyable despite being a by-the-numbers imitation makes use of well known voice talent easy 1000 gs
  • Cons: takes itself a little too seriously controls can be flaky at times, especially on horseback horse usage is mostly confined to the @2 areas designed around its use making what would be super useful in getting around almost useless

Fun

  • Summary: Looking forward to the next one; hopefully they capitalize on this ones flaws.
  • Pros: Fun game overall. Awesome graphics and sound, but these areas still could have been improved.
  • Cons: Controls take sometime getting used to. Storyline is average.

Lots of fun if you like games like Zelda, God of War and Soul Reaver

S. Monahan, Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: Darksiders cribs a lot (most even) of it's gameplay from the likes of Zelda, Soul Reaver, God of War and Portal (yes, there is a portal gun!), but none of this detracts from the game at all. Wonderful art, animation and level design push this game over the top allowing it to stand on it's own next to those games it borrows from.

I have a love/hate relationship with this game

ramon2585, Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: This game is great to me. It's perfect for a beginner like myself, cause I've never played any action/combat game before, like Devil May Cry or God of War. I wanted to ease my way into the genre. I love this game cause it allows you to upgrade your moves, kinda like an RPG game. You can either increase the range or power of a move...sometimes both. Another nice tough is that you can connect all your moves together, even if it's with another weapon.
