    The remastered edition of a brilliantly designed and masterfully executed action adventure game looks and feels really good on new platforms. [01/2017, p.47]

    A masterful re-up with a great story, a beautifully grim world and exciting, fast-paced gameplay. And that price point makes it essential.

    Of course I would like to talk about a sequel. But nonetheless six years after the original again I had a lot of fun with War and his improved visuals within the timeless comic design. Unfortunately some mechanical flaws remain untouched.

    Its graphics may look a little dated, and performance does unfortunately decline as you approach its end, but for £14.99 it provides an enjoyably compelling 15 plus hour adventure full of fast-paced combat and brain teasing puzzles that is easy to recommend. Fans of God of War and Zelda in particular will certainly find a lot to like about it.

    On its own, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is a thrill ride and offers plenty of bang for the buck.

    Warmastered Edition keeps the essence seen in the original game a few years ago. As a whole, it’s a surprising game, which works especially well comprehending in a neat way the affluence of its genre classics, taking it back in a work that it’s already a classic. Without any doubt, it is worth discovering War’s adventure, or coming back if you've already played it.

    We have seen plenty of other re-releases with DLC, extras for those who search for them and even new modes, but Darksiders Warmastered Edition is only an upgrade in its simplest form. It's a game that feels slightly dated with its gameplay but it is still enjoyable whether you're a returning player or a new one.

    Best game in the series with the most interesting bosses but the series was still developed well by gameplay improvements in the second one

    I have never played any of the Darksiders games. Not for lack of wanting, to be honest I’m not really sure why I never played them. I hadI have never played any of the Darksiders games. Not for lack of wanting, to be honest I’m not really sure why I never played them. I had always heard good things about them, especially amongst the PSVG staff. I specifically made sure not to look at any past reviews or gameplay so I would have a fresh take.

    Darksiders Warmastered starts the way very few games start, and it’s something that I have always loved in games…….. Ultimate Power

    You start the game at the peak of your power, fighting incredibly large and impressive enemies. After you progress through what is best described as Hell on Earth, you reach the big boss. It is a very impressive creature and a fun fight. Think God of War boss fight. You even get some of those fun button pressing sequences while fighting the enemy.

    After the boss fight you are treated to some truly stunning visuals and top notch voice acting. Then, you are stripped of all your powers. Now you know what you are aspiring to achieve. The end game if you will.

    “Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth. Brought before the sacred Charred Council, War is indicted for his crimes and stripped of his powers. Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible. Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.”

    As you begin your first mission after being stripped of your power you will quickly realize just how much you have lost. Enemies are tough, even the lowly zombies roaming around. The level is perfect for adventurers as you can explore every book and cranny discovering unlockables. The game has a very God of War meets Onimusha feel, and that “feel” is great. I love the control scheme, and for a game that release a number of years ago, it looks great!

    I know it’s “Warmastered”, but I have certainly played some “remastered” games that don’t live up to that title. (Wink wink Ultimate Alliance)

    If you take some time to look through your character menu’s you will see just how much growth you will have. Whether it’s new combos, new weapons to discover or a skill tree that you can develop, Darksiders Warmastered has a lot to offer.

    As with most of my other reviews, I’m going to avoid getting into the game any further so that you can experience it yourself. Darksiders scratches an itch I have had for a long long time……. maybe since the last God of War. I truly love this game. It controls great, it’s challenging, looks awesome and most of all, it’s FUN! With enough character development to keep you searching for those hidden chests and collecting all those souls to eventually sell for combos, etc.. Darksiders Warmastered will fill up all your free time.
    The best news for me is, once I unlock everything in this game, I get to look forward to the sequel!
