    I’m glad we got two wonderful action games out of the Darksiders property, even if that’s all we ever get, and I’m really glad I played them again, because they’re not lost a step.

    Darksiders is back with a great remaster, good for both those who want to rediscover this title and those who want to live this adventure again.

    Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is a great remastered for one of the greatest games of the past generation.

    Minor conversion issues aside that can likely be solved, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition has the intrinsic fortune of being a timeless looker with its distinct visuals, which benefits from appropriate resolution and performance buffs that bring it up to speed. A fantasy world that retains its wonder and gracefully aged gameplay easily ensure that this game's horseman can confidently cometh again.

    Ultimately, Darksiders is a solid action-adventure title, the likes of which we don't see often nowadays. The Warmastered Edition, however, is a disappointingly lackluster re-release, with a number of bugs that weren't present in the original release that serve to hinder the experience. As a series fan, I hope that THQ Nordic eventually releases a patch to address these problems, because the tantalizing possibility of a Darksiders 3 involving all four Horsemen of the Apocalypse theoretically rests on the success of these remasters… but aside from all that, Darksiders is a good enough game to deserve the extra tender love and care.

    A commendable remaster at a decent price point, Darksiders Warmastered gives those who missed out another chance to try an underappreciated gem of the PS3 era. Just prepare for some mechanical rust.

    Darksiders Warmastered Edition brings back Guerra into action on PC and current-gen consoles, along with a strong graphic upgrade. Unfortunately, no new contents or game modes have been added in the process, and even though some mechanics and environments could feel a bit dated nowadays, the core gameplay is still solid and fun to play. The budget price makes this remaster a good choice, even if you played the original game.

The textures are up-scaled and look great as well as well as the performance. The remaster is also a huge improvement on Darksiders: II The Deathinitive Edition, which is not as polished as this remaster. These improvements make it worth playing the game all over again since its 2010 release. Expand

So I figured why not give them aDarksiders 3 is coming out at some point in 2018 and I want to play it but I haven’t played the first two. So I figured why not give them a try before I go out and spend money on a series that I have never played before? The first two games are on Xbox game pass so its stupid not to take advantage of that.

    Before I even started to play the game, I kept hearing and reading comparisons to the Nintendo series, Zelda. While playing it, it didn’t quite feel like a traditional Zelda game. I think a big reason for that is the combat, the combat felt better than any Zelda that I have ever played. I realize that’s going to upset Nintendo fans but that’s just my opinion.

    The more that I thought about the game, the more I do see the comparisons. There are dungeons all over the place, when you go into a dungeon you get an item. You then have to use the new item to solve some puzzle and it’s sometimes helpful in defeating enemies. Also a lot like Zelda, when you solve a puzzle it makes a sound. Its hard to describe a sound in an article but when you hear that sound, that pitch you know that you have defeated the boss or solved the puzzle or you know that you accomplished something.

    This game came out 2010 and the remaster was released in 2016 so the remaster is a couple years old but the original game is only 8 years old. I can say with absolute certainty that the game seems to have aged well or at least the remaster is very well done. If you haven’t played Darksiders yet, it’s definitely worth it.

На пс4 прошел ее сегодня.На прохождение ушло 16 часов, игра показалась несколько затянутой, под конец стало слишком много головоломок, как будто я играю в портал или мега мэн. Так же немного бесили некоторые локации, к примеру левел дизайн локации с Плакальщицей. Очень запутано, по карте ориентироваться тяжело. А так игра - Бомба. Война - очень крутой, английская озвучка - одна из лучших,голос подобран идеально. Локации красивые, атмосфера густая, депрессивная. Боевка интересная и разнообразная, хоть приёмов и немного. Сюжет закрученный. Expand
