THQ will release an extensive demo for Darksiders on February 25. The 90-minute demo features the first dungeon in the game, which should provide enough puzzle-solving and combat to either convince you the game is worth buying, or that it's too much of a copycat. We enjoyed the game, for what it's worth.
The demo features the entire Twilight Cathedral level, which includes new weapons to discover and two bosses. The demo will be available for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“We are really pumped to be bringing a playable demo for Darksiders to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3,” said David Adams, general manager of Vigil Games. “We really wanted to give gamers a true idea of the variety of gameplay that the game offers and so rather than just making a standard 20-minute-demo version of the first few levels, we decided to give away this massive level and reveal the true essence of the game.”

90 min demo? Sweet! Still mad about the whole Red Faction free code BS, but I will gladly get a taste of the game before I eventually buy it this year.

Not a really big fan of THQ, and kind of sceptical of vigil since they've done relatively nil as of yet. But I"ll definitely give it a whirl.

I wonder how big the download will be?

The perfect example how a demo should be for this type of game :)

Sniff, Kinda brings a tear to your eye to think a Dev would do something like this for us. If this is how it will be, imagine the post release support this game will receive.

Awesome. I've geen interested in this game but it's not really my type of game. This will give me a good idea if I should buy it or not.

This game is great. And it only gets better as you play it.

too much of a copycat?
- 6:19pm EST - February 16th, 2010

Sweet! I've been wondering about this game.

No worries... 90 minutes won\\\'t spoil any part of this game... Plenty of replay value and I can promise you that after the first 90 minutes this game gets unbelievable... So many things that may seem familiar but you gotta give it a chance... Not to mention Gamestop has it on sale now for $39.99...

An excellent game. It combined elements from SEVERAL games together into a well-rounded and fun package, whereas DI simply ripped off one game entirely (which kept me from buying the game). I highly recommend it (and the ending is EPIC).

Lesson to be learned. Release the demo before the game launches. Not after.
Due to the vast number of games out soon, I've resigned this one to a low price purchase (i.e. £17.99 or less). Had there been a demo earlier, I'd have likely already owned the game.
