Darksiders has been constantly referred to as a mix of God of War and Legend of Zelda. That mix isn't quite equal: it's more 60% God of War and 40% Zelda. Players take on the role of War, one of the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse. After a short introduction sequence taking place in the present...
Review - Darksiders (PS3)
on October 11, 2012 at 06:54 PM
After the point when i heard about Darksiders, i heard a lot of hate about the game as well. People said it was a God of War/Zelda ripoff, and some people even put Darksiders down for their opinion for worst game. I was a little shocked cause the game looked interesting enough, and with Darksiders II...
Darksiders review player

Darksiders is a good game all around. It involves puzzels, action, riding, story telling,shotting, and a total awesome charector design. Yes we are all aware that some of the ideas are taken from God of War and a little Zelda. But it maes them its own design. To start off with is the graphics. The charector...
A Fine Way to End the World
on November 22, 2010 at 10:11 PM
Next to zombies, aliens, space marines, and WWII, the apocalypse is one of the most common settings for video games these days. Some games like Fallout and Gears of War use them as grim reminders of some tragic war while others like Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask use them as the reward for failing...

Pros Combat is fluid Beautiful graphics Wide array of weaponry to use and play around with Fun bosses Cons Story is thin and predictable Complicated control system Summary Although it does nothing new to the Action/Adventure genre, Darksiders does a great job at taking the combat elements of God of War...
Darksiders, the Frankenstein monster
on August 20, 2010 at 12:04 PM
This game is has taken many ideas from popular games like 'God of War', and 'Legend of Zelda'. It is no secret, the main character of the game is sized, and brutalizes like Kratos, and the dungeon puzzles rival those of the Zelda series. Despite these, on its own, Darksiders is a very...

When I first got Darksiders I was very very excited about it. I had heard nothing but great reviews from everyone who had played it and also good reviews from here at GI. I was sadly disappointed in what I had. When I first had seen the review it had compared Darksiders to God Of War and Zelda, which...
Legend of War
on February 25, 2010 at 08:06 PM
Darksiders is a funny game to write a review for. It borrows so many elements from practically every game that's been successful over the past half-decade, but it puts them together to create a game that is unlike any other. Each moment felt like it was taken from another game, but it those moments...

Darksiders is a great game and I really enjoyed it.I'm going to list some of the pros/cons I feel about the game. Pros Combat- The Combat was a lot of fun and very easy to pick up.While some call it a God of war clone I'd have to disagree,I'm not saying it doesn't have those elements...
Big words for a new studio
on January 15, 2010 at 04:22 PM
Vigil Games set out on a mission: Create an adventure game that combined the puzzles and dungeons of Zelda, and combine it with the large scale action of God of War. From the minute you pop the disc in and watch the opening scene, things seems very big. Not just in size, but in story, and in action....
The End Is Not Quite Next-Gen
on January 15, 2010 at 01:52 AM
Darksiders is, without a doubt, a solid action/adventure title. War finds himself in a pleasantly familiar landscape with the obvious influence of the Devil May Cry, God of War, and Zelda franchises. However the game's lack of innovation is both a blessing and a curse. I feel that this title, while...
A spectacular game, made me buy another controller.

It's well designed, in fact, marvelously designed. The Arts Direction reminds me of World of Warcraft and Activision Blizzard's visual concepts. Of course, the graphics could look a little bit more "next gen", so we all wouldn't have the feeling of going back to 2000 and something...
A Review for People that Don't Really Like Puzzles
on January 09, 2010 at 01:50 PM
This game is just ok if, like me, you are the minority of fans that do not like puzzle dungeons. Here's the skinny. Positives : The storyline is very unique, if a little God of War-esque. Most games have you trying to stop the Apocalypse and save humanity. In this game, humanity is wiped out at the...
