"Darksiders" arrived in my mailbox around noon yesterday, and I hit it pretty hard for a few ours. My initial thoughts were "COOL!" I enjoyed the opening storyline and was intrigued with the biblical ties that lay in the undercurrent of the story. The game play took a little getting use to, but you can adapt rather quickly. The story moves on at a pretty good pace and sometimes slows down a bit when you encounter some of the games "puzzles" in order to continue. Battling some of the bigger enemies require a bit of strategy and the boss battles are pretty intense. The supporting cast of characters fit well into the storyline and sometimes give you a bit of a laugh. I've only put in about 5 hours but my overall impression is that the game is well designed, the storyline has enough depth to keep you interested, the game play keeps you on your toes and at times requires a little thinking, and the graphics are pretty decent. If your looking to have a little fun and looking for something to hold you over until "God of War III," "Darksiders" will probably be right up your alley.
