    Darksiders

    Game-play:This game have the typical hack n slash game play with nothing new or interesting,very slow game play and you very quick will get board.The game tries really hard to be hack n slash and RPG but it fails in both. Story:Boring.The characters are coming from nowhere and it is like the game expects from you to know them. Graphics:Mediocre graphics little better

    Game-play:This game have the typical hack n slash game play with nothing new or interesting,very slow game play and you very quick will get board.The game tries really hard to be hack n slash and RPG but it fails in both.

    Story:Boring.The characters are coming from nowhere and it is like the game expects from you to know them.

    Graphics:Mediocre graphics little better than most ps2 games.

    Notes:The only thing in this game that do not suck is the puzzles the game have really good puzzles and some games could take example of the puzzles here,the game is to easy even in the hardest difficulty level,the level design is crap.Do not buy this game not even in a 70% price drop.

    I didn't care for this game. The graphics are decent, nothing more. The world didn't feel engaging and never felt "real". The combat is restricted to one button and that gets repetitive. The platforming was and puzzles are less then standard. The game never seems to have a face either. It looks and feels like there's 13 in a dozen of these games.

    This has to be one of the most overhyped games of recent times. Combat is restricted to one button, with a minimum amount of combos achieved by pressing square (or x) one, two, three or four times. Enemies are extremely repetitive and boss fights completely unspectacular. The main character War is lacking personality and the environment is both graphically poor and not fun to traverse.

The only redeeming quality of this game is the somewhat enjoyable story, but it is not enough to warrant a purchase, let alone a rent. Expand

  1. If ever there was a pure gamer’s game, Darksiders is it.
  2. When viewed as a whole, it is clear that Darksiders was made by skilled developers who truly love video games. If there ever was a game that could be all things to all people and tastes, Darksiders is it.

    A great action RPG. Solid, ever-evolving combat meets solid, ever-evolving puzzles in some really evocative environments.
