Darksiders!

on 5/1/2012

I loved this game a lot. The graphics and combat were great and the story was pretty cool. I liked upgrading my weapons and learning new and awesome combos to pull off. If you are a fan of puzzle ridden dungeons ala Zelda you will love this game as well.

I love this game. The graphics are great, the story is straightforward yet compelling, the combat is amazing, and the puzzles are challenging. Darksiders is a terrific game and a blast to play. All of the negative comments seem to be based on the fact that it is like "Prince of Persia, with elements of Zelda and God of War mixed in" or something to that effect. Well, I have never played any of those games, so to me it is just a great game

Product Overview

Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War - the first Horseman of the Apocalypse - stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the ensuing slaughter, demonic forces defeated the Heavenly Hosts and laid claim to the Earth. Brought before the sacred Charred Council, War is indicted for his crimes and stripped of his powers. Dishonored and facing his own demise, War is given the opportunity to find redemption by returning to Earth to search for the truth and to punish those responsible. Hunted by vengeful Angels, War must forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts as he journeys across the ravaged remains of Earth on his quest for vindication. The answers he seeks will lead him to take on the forces of Hell, and reveals a conspiracy in which War is just a pawn in the eternal battle between far greater powers.

Review With the fall of the year, gamers around the world have been spoilt with some fantastic blockbuster hits. Most of these have been from sequels, outside of a few select games that came from seasoned game developers, that automatically get granted the hype and recognition a fresh IP needs to survive. When Darksiders became available for review I wearily took up the task, after all, Vigil Games have no history of outstanding games and I had seen very little of Darksiders outside of the advertising push on a select number of websites. Don't make the same mistake, Darksiders deserves your attention...Jumping right into the deep end I select the 'apocalyptic' difficult setting and submerge myself into hours of extensive action adventure. Following the heavily used formula found in similar games I am immediately thrown in with full strength, allowed to rip apart the enemies before me until an unfortunate incident strips me of my full strength. The introduction to the game is not the strongest, as whilst the combat is fast, the presentation is stellar and the story is certainly engaging -- you get the impression that Darksiders is simply a mindless hack 'em up when it very much is not. The game's beauty becomes apparent upon being stripped of your full abilities that you journey to restore, along with many additional ones...The presentation of Darksiders holds up to the rest of the game, along with competing titles. There is certain design flair to be found throughout the game, with some beautiful environments and fantastic animations being the highlights. The most impressive aspect of the presentation is simply the flawlessness of it all. Everything from the models, to the environments, to the menus and user interface, is all of great quality and extremely fitting of the games theme. The audio once again is equally fantastic, with impressive voice work in particular for all characters. This goes hand-in-hand with the level of polish the game holds, giving a feeling that the developers were not rushing the product out of the door and instead spent time and attention to do it right from the start...How shocked I was to find that the more hours I spent investing into Darksiders, the more rewarding it felt. Darksiders feels like a breath of fresh air, a step in the right direction and a reinvention of formulas that are sorely missed when used at this level of quality. If this is the first offering of Vigil Games, I highly anticipate their next and keep my fingers crossed for a sequel. Now all that is left is to hope that Darksiders achieves the sales it deserves, and does not suffer a silent death aside the ever loud sequel sales.
