In the current climate of global recession, publishers seem less willing to take risks and are depending on sequels rather than starting anew. Mass Effect 2, Army of two 2, Modern warfare 2, Assassins Creed 2 the list goes on. Luckily for us, THQ decided to take Darksiders up and Xboxliveaddicts for one is glad they did.
Wrote by legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira (X-Men, Battle Chasers, The Ultimates), Darksiders is set in a Post-Apocalyptic demon-ravaged world where evil forces have prematurely brought about the end of the time.
You play as War, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. You have been sent to Earth to oversee its destruction however you have been betrayed.
You start the game with lots of abilities, your trusty sword and the ability to transform into Wars chaos form (big demon type monster) just hit LB + RT together and you can destroy almost any non boss in seconds, great for some of the mini bosses that spawn later in the game. It doesn't take long before you are stripped of these powers however so its time to sort the angels and demons out, get your powers back, find out why you were betrayed and get revenge.
