"Darksiders is a love affair with good games. Is it perfect? I suppose not, but mainly because it lacks innovation. It does so many things right while glossing over so many of the frustrating aspects of prior games that it's very difficult not to fall in love. It may not appeal to those looking for the next hot thing, or those who always must have a realistic visual experience, but to those of us who have loved games like God of War and Zelda, it's like a new blanket that smells and feels like the one we grew up in, but is covered in blood and wicked looking runes and tribal marks."
