Fun game!! Totally Engrossing and Amazing!!

Whoaaa!! Finished this game yesterday and I'm
kinda sad the game is over. I've been playing
this game on and off the past 2 months and
each time I've been entertained and had a lot
of fun. The game is never boring because the
game designers always have something new
to throw at you.

After playing Uncharted2, God of War3 and
Bioshock2 I thought that no other game will be
as much fun.

Boy was I wrong. Darksiders was in the middle
of my GF queue and I was disappointed when GF shipped
it to me but after playing it I want to thank GF
for picking this game for me to play.

This game is amazing! If you are a GOd of War
fan or freak, try this game. Most of the game
feels like GofW but it's not. Sure you have the
chests, the wings etc. but Darksiders added a lot
more.

I love the Krull inspired crossblade weapon, the
grappling hook, voidwalker portal, a gun called
mercy with unlimited bullets and of course the
sword. And of course you get to ride a horse
called Ruin. All the weapons are amazing and shows
the creativity of Vigil Games.

The boss battles also are tough especially the
one where you have to ride your horse and have
to keep shooting at these "Tremors" inspired
worms and keeping the screen rotated 360 degrees
so you can see behind you :-) Ruin also has a
limited number of turbos you can use to evade the
worms.

All in all, I gave this game a 10. It's so much
fun to play, visuals, music and voice acting are
very good. The controls are amazingly done.
Combat moves are very smooth and easy to control
and learn. (Check out the dash with the sword cut move!)
and the storyline is engaging.

Where else do you get to cut off those angels
wings and fry them? :-)

I ended up buying this game from GF for the
replay value. It's money and time well spent :-)

Okay, so it's basically just the baby of God of War and Legend of Zelda. But I don't have any problem with that. I mean can you call it the biggest stealer of the year when you compare it to 3D Dot Game Heroes? Okay, sure... it even takes some cues from Portal... but it all works and works WELL. The story is pretty good even though it may be a little tough to follow. The scope is epic... in the first moments you are shown just how much you tower over the humans and then as you lose your power you are shown how large the real enemy is. The combat has plenty of weapons and combos--and thank god it does because it starts to feel stale until you get a secondary weapon. The puzzles are smart and truly LoZ inspired. Definitely something I think everyone should try. If you want a good hack n slash that isn't mindless, this is right up your alley. Otherwise try... ~shudder~... Dante's Inferno.

Fun Button Masher

I enjoyed this game a lot more than I expected too. The graphics and music were great, and anytime I felt I was close to getting bored, something would change to keep it interesting. It's a solid button masher action game; it's definitely not the most difficult game in the world so if you are someone who wants hugely challenging games, skip it. If you are looking for a well made entertaining game, Darksiders is worth a look.
