A Beautiful Mirage

This game is probably the best case and point of what is to come between the comic book, and video game industry. And frankly I cannot wait!!! I actually like this game better than Bayonetta, the source material is fantastic and it is a very meaty game. If you are writing and playing it to compare it to other games you are doing it for the wrong reasons. The game mechanics are there for a reason, it is the best way to tell the story. I believe this was one of the few games that were delayed until after the holiday season and I am glad the time was well spent tweaking the gameplay. The way the graphics emulate the comic art style is phenomenal if you have ever been into comic books you will be excited by the truth of the interpretational art style. The only thing I can complain about though is there should've been more meat in the dialog to flesh out the emotion in the plot, some reviews criticize how the game plateaus after the first hour and there is some truth in it. But make no mistake it is a gamers game, and for PS3, and XBOX360 gamers it is definitely one to check out!!!

"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.
