its like god of war mixed with prototype! i think the game is beautifully crafted and designed. the only downfall i came across was that the there were too many controls for the game play. but again i would have to rate this very high. among the classics such as god of war, oblivion, infamous, and resistance! i hope a sequel is in order!
Darksiders is exactly what all the reviews have been calling it, which is God of War + Zelda, which apparently are two things that go together as well as chocolate and peanut butter. Everything from the storyline to the puzzle solving has been crafted by people who obviously love gaming. I think my only complaint might be that I don't want the game to end! Really top-notch stuff here, guys. A must rent!!
Lets get the ugly stuff out of the way first - yes this game has similarities to God of War and Zelda (and even a blatant rip-off of Portal) but as a whole this game is great and anyone with a gamefly account (hey, that's you!) should definitely check this game out. The art style is easily one of the best out there in my opinion making for some truly beautiful level and character designs and it is backed by what I feel is one of the best stories in a video game in a long time - all the way up to the ending which is especially great. The combat is fairly simply but still ends up being very fun and the game has a nice variety of cool puzzles throughout. The upgrades to your skills, moves, health/wrath and weapon mods keep the game feeling fresh all the way through as well.
Do yourself a favor and check this great game out.
