Besides the obvious cliques and mind destroying puzzles, Darksider is one of the best slasher games I've ever played. I was so proud of the ending; I had the abyssal armor and with my steed destroyed the final boss with ease...payback for a certain 8 legged boss. Im so attached to War, the First Horseman. I only wish i can use him in one of the next sequels. I just started second one and Death seems bad to the bone and everything but War remains my favorite.
Storys great and fighting is fun. Not your everyday hack and slash, it has puzzles as well. Don't worry they aren't that hard except for one level... (Theres always youtube walkthroughs to help ya though :P) Play this one first before you play Darksiders 2 if you wanna get to know the story better!
