    Darksiders Genesis is an Isometric Hack-and-Slash Twin-Stick Action Adventure. Taking place Before the Events of the other titles Genesis will take you to Hell and back, literally and metaphorically. The story tells the tale of the Seven Seals, and how we got to the events of the first Darksiders. Introducing the Horseman Strife (My favorite of the series) and bringing back the HorsemanDarksiders Genesis is an Isometric Hack-and-Slash Twin-Stick Action Adventure. Taking place Before the Events of the other titles Genesis will take you to Hell and back, literally and metaphorically. The story tells the tale of the Seven Seals, and how we got to the events of the first Darksiders. Introducing the Horseman Strife (My favorite of the series) and bringing back the Horseman War in frenetic single-player action allowing the near seamless transition between the two. Summon stones scattered throughout the stages allow you to summon a friend that is also playing to take control of one of the Horsemen in intense Co-Op play. As you progress and explore you'll obtain powerful upgrades and items that are used to both dispatch enemies, and solve puzzles. Blending an isometric twin-stick with the hectic action of the former hack-and-slash titles could not have been an easy task, but the end result is incredible! Fast paced combat with the freedom to explore creates a dual sided experience that shifts semlessly from one to the other. The bosses as always are bigger than life and will crush you fast if you aren't careful! If you lose one Horseman you are instantly reverted to the other, and after a short wait, the other will return with a bit of their life back, but lose both before then and it's lights out, back to the last checkpoint. Easily one of my favorite entries to the aeries Darksiders Genesis is a wonderous treat to behold. Expand

    Juego bastante entretenido, como amante de este género, quedé muy satisfecho. Haber incluido a todos los jinetes hubiera sido mejor, pero para el próximo genesis lo harán de seguro. Horas de juego aceptables, pero al ser muy frenético, basta y sobra. Buena compra. Muy recomendado.

    Darksiders Genesis comes prepared to give a lot of war in its fight without quarter to restore the balance.

    Darksiders: Genesis redeems the series after the disappointment of the 3rd entry last year. It manages to capture the essence that makes Darksiders what it is, while transposing it in to a new genre. Top quality action, over the top powers and spectacle and a fun core loop that provides challenge without too much frustration. Removing the series staple platforming wouldn’t have hurt, and at times solo play can be a little bit attritional, but overall you’d be hard pressed not to have a good time with Genesis.

    Darksiders: Genesis is a neat concept with a frankly bizarre execution. While the isometric viewpoint is cool during certain scenarios – namely Strife’s twin-stick shooter gameplay – everything else doesn’t really fit, especially the awful platforming. It’s not a bad game, it’s just not a very good one.
