GameInformer Review: Darksiders

It's not that playing as a horseman of the apocalypse (the sword-wielding War) is an empowering experience (he gnashes his teeth, communicates almost solely through threats, yet ends up being a transparent "who needs backstory?" guide through the end of days). Darksiders' allure comes from the homage it pays to Zelda and God of War. Upstart developer Vigil Games does nothing to disguise the fact that both aforementioned games are channeled to the fullest extent.

The portal gun? Seriously?

Looks like a decent game. Maybe I'll rent it.

while waiting for GowIII

Plays like Zelda and God of War? Has a portal gun? Count me in!

/runs to amazon to preorder

I would think that would be a very odd combination, but so far reviews have been good!

Feral Gamer3219d ago

Yeah, albeit by smaller sites mostly, but it must be a good game.

i personally don'tthink it's that odd , it just clash with some people's assumption that Zelda 64's gameplay should only apply to zelda/cute looking games .

GoW admittely got some concept and gameplay features from Zelda . And if Jaffe was still onboard and had his way , the serie would have kept including even more concepts from ocarina of time and Mask of majora .

Dantes Inferno
God of War 3 (which I am going to have to finally buy a PS3 for)
Mass Effect 2
Bioshock 2
Alien Vs Predator
Splinter Cell

Going to need a thumb transplant by April.

And if you like JRPGs (I'm a junkie for the genre), the PS3 is where it's at next year.

That said, I have both systems, and the software forecast is looking amazing for both consoles next year.

- ME 2
- Alan Awake
- Crackdown 2

- Star Ocean International (sorry, but the 360 version didn't even stretch to fill my 50" Samsung, and was a bit of an abortion).
- GOW 3
- Heavy Rain (this game looks to offer a really unique experience, you should check it out if you're a new PS3 owner)
- The Last Guardian
- Bunch of JRPGs

And for multi-plats, pretty much just Darksiders, Final Fantasy XIII, Dead Space 2 and maybe Bioshock 2, if it doesn't appear to suck. Too many other games vying for my time and cash in 2010.

Peace and gaming to all.

Sevir043219d ago

and a few multiplats because i cant afford everything.

All of these Exclusives are coming before the Summer, 5 of which come in the first 3 months
ModNation Racers,
Heavy Rain
The Last gaurdian.
Yakuza 3


Battlefield:Bad Company 2
Dead Space 2,
Final Fantasy XIII
Dante's Inferno

Sony's holiday line up will be even better as i'm sure they'll announce somethings next year that'll drop for the fall. like 3d Dot hero's, Final fantasy XIV online and some other stuff.

Was hoping this game would be good and the reviews are positive so far....
