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...
Apocalyptic Themed Story Steals Thunder from Other Better Games
on May 25, 2012 at 08:18 AM
Darksiders is basically God of War and Devil May Cry, but in a different time and place. While Devil May Cry is somewhat placed in the current time, God of War placed far in the past, Darksiders takes that same idea, but pushes it far into the future. On the surface, the game is actually quite strong...
What a mess.
on March 18, 2012 at 09:05 AM
Let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of the artist for this game. I had huge hopes for a fun action adventure game with nods to other game franchises I enjoyed. There, that's out of the way. This game is a pretty mess of poor controls and blatant theft. Portal, Zelda and God of War are all...
Darksiders nothing new but nothing old either

When I had Darksiders I loved it was pretty good,however I wish I could say I didn't find anything wrong with it but I did.Darksiders is basically a mixture of God Of War and Zelda.No better yet when God Of War and Zelda get it on you get Darksiders.I think one thing that could have been improved...

I love games with a story which I can follow along with weapon upgrades and an open world to explore. I had mentioned to someone I liked Zelda and I love swords. I was told to try Darksiders and I love it.
Horsemen of the Apocalypse
on May 29, 2011 at 12:46 AM
Darksiders plays smoothly, looks sharp, sounds great, and provides about 15 hours of single-player content. There's lots of gear to collect, weapons to upgrade, combos to learn, and special items to find. There's a range of enemy-rich environments, puzzle dungeons and reasons to backtrack. All...
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...
Something Something Darkside

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...
Link is Not Going to Be Happy About This
on September 06, 2010 at 03:52 PM
After playing this game I can safely conclude that, at one point or another, Princess Zelda cheated on her gallant hero Link with another man. While the possibilities to the identity of her lover are many, the most likely candidate for the position is the stylish demon hunter Dante. From this union,...

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...
Aaaargh! WHY!? Why must games with potential be generic knockoffs of other games?
on August 09, 2010 at 08:43 PM
Very little good to say here. The graphics are average but nothing jaw dropping. Combat mechanics are bland and boring. Story is original but hardly engaging. Gameplay steals from Zelda and God of War to create a game that is obviously lacking in creativity and steals the best elements from other games...

A game totaly worth playing it adds post apocolyptic setting with a twist heaven and hell battle. Almost a perfect game the only thing wrong was the constant running around. needed a bit more action when traveling. A great game if liked dantes inforno or devil may cry. another favorite of mine.

Better than I though
on April 08, 2010 at 08:22 AM
This game is a clone, no doubt. But it's still a great game. If you're looking for nonstop action, this is the ticket. Though I haven't finished the game, I'm still thoroughly impressed with it. The beginning tosses you right into the bowels of epic! The controls are very smooth and approachable...
A good game never hitting its stride.
on March 15, 2010 at 03:37 PM
Personally to me Darksiders could have been a great game the potential was there but the game just never hit its stride. As i played through the first dungeon i admired the detail and care put into the area but repetitiveness kept plaguing the overall feel of the game through the enemies and battles...

It's alright. Not super great but not terrible.
Darkisders review - AJS
on March 10, 2010 at 03:41 PM
I personally thought this game was awesome. It took me back to my Ocarina of Time days. This is what I loved: Great environment art, and interaction. Great art on characters. Sweet fluid combat. Awesome puzzles. Amazing storyline. Intense finisher moves, and flawless process between regular combat, and...
