Darksiders: Wrath of War

- Xbox 360

Usually when you don't get a demo or hear, anything about a game then you can bet it's going to be mediocre or just plain awful. Darksiders however, is surprisingly good most of the time. Darksiders is basically God of War meets apocalyptic Zelda. You play as War a member of an ancient console who's job is to keep order between Heaven and Hell until mankind becomes aware of their destiny. H...

Darksiders: Wrath of War

- PS3

Darksiders: Wrath of War is set in a post-apocalyptic war-torn earth. Humans are dead, and you, War, must find a way to fix what went wrong. Without spoiling much, there are nine seals that lead the way to a rebirth of the world. You and the other horseman were supposed to "answer the call" of the seventh seal. However, it seems poor old War is framed, and so begins his epic jour...

Darksiders: Wrath of War

- PS3

If you've been keeping an eye on this game, you already know a good deal about how original Darksiders is, or to say, isn't. Darksiders is one of those games that doesn't stray far from the beaten path, but unlike many games it also never stumbles while on this path. To start, as said, Darksiders brings very little to the table in terms of new ideas. But the execution of the ideas it bring...

It's Zelda - "Rated M for Mature". There I said it. But Darksiders: Wrath of War often exceeds it's pedigree by deftly exploiting many well-trodden formulas, keeping them familiar yet fresh. Playing as the vengeance-fueled War, Horseman of the Apocalypse, you stand accused of instigating the End Times early and destroying the World of Man. The legions of Heaven and Hell, and the...

Darksiders: Wrath of War

- PS3

Drawing immediate comparisons to the likes of Sony's flagship God of War series is no mean feat for a game that was overlooked at launch due to Platinum Games' swift, excellent and ravishing combo-heavy Bayonetta, but Darksiders plays akin with some of the most effective and joyful videogame tropes available in an engaging, action-rich experience (albeit with a terrible and clichéd story to bac...

Darksiders: Wrath of War

- Xbox 360

When a game is divisive among gamers, like GTA IV and most recently Other M, I tend to look be in the group that likes the game more. But not this game. I don't find it to be especially bad, just mediocre. And it's the absolute worst kind of mediocre, the kind where absolutely NOTHING stands out to me. I've liked "average" games before, but usually something keeps me playing. Dante's Inferno...

Darksiders: Wrath of War

- PS3

Despite having been out and on shelves for 3 years, Darksiders had illuded me until very recently. When it was originally released I wasn't interested in it at all and knew next to nothing about it; but when its' sequel was released and critically praised, I decided to look into where it all started. I went into the game with an open mind and genuine interest. Given that the series is still pre...
