GamesRadar writes: "War is having a pretty bad day. As one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it was his job to help bring about the end of the world, and from the war torn environments we saw in an early build of Darksiders: Wrath of War, it looks like he did this job well. But it turns out that War and his horse-loving partners in evil have been bamboozled into bringing about the end of the world ahead of schedule.
Now War finds him alone, stripped of his powers and stuck in the middle of worldwide battle between angels and demons. Developer, Vigil Games has previously described Darksiders as their vision of a Zelda-type game. We see what they mean in the sense that War will acquire new powers and weapons during his journey that will help him solve puzzles to unlock new areas."
