NWR: The original Darksiders is best remembered for being something of a mash up of elements from several games. You could have labeled it a Zelda game—the first weapon you get is unapologetically the boomerang from Wind Waker (though heavily modified). The combat is reminiscent of God of War or perhaps Devil May Cry. You eventually find a gun that shoots portals. Despite its minor identity crisis, Darksiders was a fantastic game with great art direction, an interesting story, and genuinely challenging dungeons.
