Bad Guy Wins writes: "Calling Darksiders a love child really isn't the best of describing it. Love children are generally unplanned. With Darksiders, Vigil Games knew exactly what they were creating. Besides a bit of the story, there's not really an original bone in this games body. It's any 3D Zelda game with God of War's violence and combat mixed in with a bit of the Soul Reaver series. This kind of feels like a game that a bunch of hardcore gamers cooked up in their basement one evening after a really intense conversation."
