Summary

Darksiders is an action game borrowing heavily from God of War and Zelda. While it doesn't compete with either series, the game offers a healthy dose of fast combat, gratuitous gore, and overly drawn out puzzles and dungeons.

We like

  • The gory finishing moves
  • The opening sequence
  • The moment War turns into a giant fiery beast

We dislike

  • The repetitive gameplay
  • The invisible walls
  • The lack of originality

(continued from previous page) ...the 2010 gaming season. The game’s concept is strong on the surface, but beneath the colorfully polished exterior rests just another game to keep you occupied for about 15 to 20 hours.
