I keep trying to figure out where the developers, Vigil Games, keep snagging their influences from, but it seems that they've made their way through a berry patch of video games, picking and choosing ripe ideas at will. For the time being though, I'm going to say that Darksiders most reminds me of Soul Reaver… and Zelda… and Dark Sector. Huh?
Wrath of War is set in an alternate version of the future where some baddies have prematurely brought on the apocalypse. No one likes early guests! Well, the upside of the situation is that you get to take control of War, the first horseman of the apocalypse, and his sizable steed as he runs about trying to set things right and get a little revenge while he's at it. All the details haven't been filled in for us yet, but we get the gist: Bad stuff is going down, and War needs to wreck sh*t to rectify the situation. I mean, why else would he be this hulking girth of a man with a huge sword, right?"
