    Darksiders III is a stunning achievement, bringing the once-dead series back to life with aplomb.

    Darksiders 3 makes great progress in terms of combat and story. If you are into action games, it might be the best appetizer before Devil May Cry 5 and Sekiro.

    A mostly uninspired action-adventure, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Combat and exploration deliver good, old-school fun and the levels are brimming with secrets. However, the story turns out rather shallow and most of the collectables and upgrades are not nearly as motivating as in the first Darksiders game. But if you are a fan of the series and keep your expectations in check, by all means, go for it.
  4. Darksiders 3 is more difficult than the previous games. A terrible checkpoint system and long loading times make the game troublesome. But its soundtrack, combat system and bosses are great.

    Darksiders 3 is a stable title but on that is far from sublime, full of good intentions but partly ravaged by a vision that is not completely in focus.

    There’s precious little to elevate Darksiders 3 to the level of the previous two games, let alone its peers in 2018. It’s a game that offers few surprises, few challenges, and few moments of greatness. What it does, it does to a satisfactory level and never kicks on from there. But there’s something about Darksiders 3 that still sort of works though. It’s a B-tier production, without a shadow of a doubt, but it’s the sort of thing that doesn’t actually come along all that often these days. Fans of the series will no doubt get a kick out of the continuing story and there’s just enough here to help Darksiders 3 stand out and make for an entertaining playthrough.

    Another evidence that not everyone is capable of parasitizing on Dark Souls. Boring, poor and uninteresting game that is rescued from the very bottom only by quite successful environmental puzzles and one good bossfight. [Issue#292]

    I love the Game.
    -> Sound is sometimes a bit boring but overall and in Bossfight its just Heroic.
    -> Camera is super easy and nice to control and the
    -> The Gameplay and the Controls are good and intuitive

    I need to say that i never play DS 1 or DS 2 so i cant say anything to that but from my Brother: DS1 was very good and DS2 gone the wrong way.. but DS3 caught the a bit failed second Part and made a Perfect Franchise out of it again.
    Over all a very nice Game. I would even pay 100 Bugs for it (In Germany 100€)

    دوستان عزیزم خواهش می کنم گول نمرات Darksiders III را نخورید و خودتان را از تجربه آن محروم نکنید، هر چند که می دانم عاقل تر از این حرف هادوستان عزیزم خواهش می کنم گول نمرات Darksiders III را نخورید و خودتان را از تجربه آن محروم نکنید، هر چند که می دانم عاقل تر از این حرف ها هستید و دیروز در پست نمرات بازی دیدم که اکثر شما چقدر خوب و درست در مورد بازی و نمراتش نظرتان را گفته بودید و خوشبختانه انگار دارد کم کم گول خوردن بازیبازان کشورمان از امتیاز متای یک بازی کمتر می شود و خیلی هوشیارتر شده ایم مخصوصا با تعداد زیاد سایت های عجیب و غریب که به متا راه پیدا کرده اند و هر چه دلشان می خواهند می گویند و هر نمره ای که میخواهند می دهند و توضیحش را هم نمی دهند که چرا؟ همان طور که قبل تر نیز خدمت شما عرض کردم اگر بخواهم بهترین جمله را به طور خلاصه در مورد Darksiders III بگویم این است که ” Darksiders III بهترین و لذتبخش ترین ترکیب ممکن از بازی اول و دوم سری است که چندین ساعت با گیم پلی جذاب، مبارزات چالش برانگیز، سلاح ها و Hollow های بسیار جذاب فیوری و دنیای پیچیده و پر از رمز و رازش شما را سرگرم می کند.” پس زیاد منتظر نمانید و در کنار فیوری سوار Rampage شده و به مبارزه با ۷ گناه اصلی بروید، تازه از این نظر بازی ثواب هم دارد! فقط ببخشید که بازی بتل رویال ندارد وگرنه احتمالا جای این نمرات الان بازی سال می شد!

A great combat system, soundtrack and difficulty that challenges you in a way that makes you feel like you're progressing with every time a boss kills you. The problem is that this difficulty makes normal enemies far harder then they should be making it frustrating to get to the boss. The next complain is that the story has not been as engaging as in the first or second Darksiders game. It starts very slowly and makes an attempt to pick up pace in the latter stage of the game but as things become very interesting the game ends. This has not been a game made by a AAA team which excuses the story in some part. With a new team making Darksiders, the game shows great potential for future games. Expand

    No, it's not as good as the first two. Even Genesis is way better. And I get why some people hated it at launch, but after the patches and bugNo, it's not as good as the first two. Even Genesis is way better. And I get why some people hated it at launch, but after the patches and bug fixes to let you play it more like past DS games, it's actually a lot of fun. For me the struggle was the focus on blocking and countering, but once I got that figured out, I enjoyed myself. Loved the art style, most of the dialogue works, and the boss fights are generally excellent. Good music, cool environments. Not much of a story, and heavy on the tropes...but this is Darksiders after all. Expand

    Has lost its charm from Darksiders 1 and 2. Combat has been dumbed down for casuals and difficulty spikes are very soft. The sense of epicHas lost its charm from Darksiders 1 and 2. Combat has been dumbed down for casuals and difficulty spikes are very soft. The sense of epic battles between divine creations is no longer there and you cannot help but feel the future of Hack and Slash games is just being cut down.

    I feel sad about what they have done with this one.
