Be it movies, television, or games, the end of the world has always been a source of awe and wonder. Vigil Games knows this just as much as Bethesda or any other studio out there does but their vision of the end comes in the form of a relatively uncommon form: traditional religion. Darksiders, their inaugural title, brings us a world of demons and angels fighting on the war-torn battlegrounds of the Earth in the vision of comic book creator Joe Madureira. But does Darksiders stand tall in this freshman outing or is it simply another skeleton destined for the bargain bin?"
