Darksiders is an absolute must have game, and the best possible way to start off gaming in 2010. In a year where almost every anticipated game is a sequel, Vigil Games has delivered a brand new IP the only way possible - flawlessly. The combination of action and puzzling is so perfectly calculated it screams 'gamer' - there's a gamer at Vigil with some power and s/he knows exactly what we want in a game.
For me, my bottomline is that Darksiders is a tremendous amount of fun because it's very well designed from top to bottom with just a handful of drawbacks. None of these drawbacks are critical enough to thwart an epic, and truly enjoyable experience.
Война войной, стрельба отстой!?
Так хочется сказать, что стрельба в Darksiders - не баг, а фича, по причине отсутствия каких либо критичных косяков во всём остальном, но не получается. Уж слишком громоздко она ощущается, хоть и под стать герою. Война, как всадник Апокалипсиса, полностью соответствует статусу, наблюдать за его поисками виновных в новоиспечённом, мультипликационном мире тёмного фэнтези со стороны — занимательно, ровно, как и решать задачки с окружением на пути к боссам, сражения с которыми могли бы встать в один ряд с битвами в God of War, при условии, что где-то неподалёку стоит скосоёженная X-blades. Добавьте ко всем этим "НО" развилки кастелироидного формата и всё равно получите игру с наивысшей оценкой, так как за счёт той самой, несуразной работы на дистанции, проект выглядит не калькой из всего и вся, а очень даже самостоятельным продуктом, где цепной пёс совета, как в рекламе Old Spice невольно говорит: "Посмотрите на другие слэшеры и на меня... На другие... На меня... Да! Я на коне.".
By far, one of the most underrated games i can think of, Darksiders, gets almost everything right, and delivers in well worth your money level of quality and length experience. It is long enough to provide great entertainment but not feel too long. The world is beautiful crafted, and the characters are interesting and fun to discover. Combat is fun and challenging. It perfectly balances something that is extremely hard to do especially in action adventure games: making your character feel bad ass and powerful, while still providing a challenge to the game. They do this with many difficult puzzles in the world, as well as having both War, and his Enemies be powerful. Slowly getting more powers and weapons allows for new access to the world. The various enemies also provides for a strategic gameplay. In my top five for sure. highly recommended.
It's able to emulate its idols very well, so whatever War is doing, it's bound to be enjoyable. But anyone who's attracted to this sort of game, or action games in general, is going to feel more familiar than floored.
While you can explain a lot of things about Darksiders by listing off other games that are directly referenced during the adventure, the game doesn't feel like some simple clone. If you like Nintendo's Zelda games and want to see an altered, darker take on its concepts, portions of Darksiders will absolutely blow you away.
First of all, I've played games before like Zelda, Prototype, Devil May Cry, etc, and they're all good. Darksiders really surpasses them all though in my point of view. I'm glad that I bought this game because when I started it, it was already great from the beginning. War is such an epic Horseman. He gives his story in this game really well. The length of play is fair. It could be more, but that is not a massive issue about this game. The action, acting, and music are great as well as the graphics in the game. Highly recommended to those people who likes post apocalyptic action games!
is a very good game, the story is amazing, only 3 bad thing: sometimes the camera is bad and you can not see right, you can not skip the cinematics (this is so bad), and the game have and excesive number of puzzless, the puzzless is part of this kind og game but this game have an exesive number
