Okay well, in a nutshell, Darksiders is pretty much a good Ps2 game.

+ This game has a great plot and an interesting concept being in the middle of a battle between both heaven and he11.

+ You get to use a lot of cool weapons and tools with countless combos and magic abilities to aid you in your quest.

+ Level designs are complex and sometimes quite puzzling.

- Graphics are just fair and interface can be a bit unrealistic.

- Jumping definitely is tedious at some points in the game, for those of you who played the new Tomb Raider game, you will know what I'm talking about.

- This may not be such a negative thing, but with the unique concept set aside, the gameplay is basically God of War mixed with the Hulk game, as far as combat and travel goes.

Overall rating: 7

Captivating Story

Incredibly elaborate puzzles!!! Like Zelda +1

SOLID game play reminds me of "God Of War," "Devil May Cry," & at times "Jak and Daxter"

Lots of power ups, unlockable weapons & abilities, the works

Good Characters w/ Excellent voice acting

Pretty good graphics

This game knows the ropes. it takes what is good about a history of games from "Spiro" to "God Of War" & makes a SOLID enjoyable game experience. Lots of monster slashing, lots of puzzle solving, & huge monster boss fights.

Slow Start, Good Story

You must be patient with this game from the beginning. You get a gist of War's abilities at the beginning and you will have to start from scratch from then on. The game has a pretty basic combat system and it doesn't take long to master. You may get bored with the hack and slash after a while. I have to admit that I almost gave up on the game after 2 hours of playing. What kept me interested was the storyline. Once you being to acquire various power-ups the game becomes a little more fluent. It's one of those games that starts to get better the more it progresses. The story itself was really interesting and I would really like to see where this story goes. I only hope that the next installment has more fluent gameplay. If you have a short attention span then I don't recommend playing this game, but I would say that it's worth a try.
