I liked this game. Only a few issues.
on June 13, 2013 at 12:11 AM
I really liked this game so much and wanted it to have a higher score so bad! Playing as Death was awesome. It took the all powerful character idea and turned him into something faster, more agile. And I really appreciated that sort of different element which was brought to the table. The first thing...
Vigil Games' Death Was Not In Vain
on May 18, 2013 at 09:25 PM
Darksiders 1 is an enjoyable experience with a standout cast of diverse characters, biblically/mythically inspired story, excellent choices for voice acting, unbelievably fantastic art direction, and is just simple fun with the hack-and-slash/puzzle solving/platforming gameplay. I know this game was...
A Tribute to Gaming's Greatest Franchises
on November 21, 2012 at 11:55 AM
While many gamers argue that titles such as the Darksiders copy and rip-off other popular titles, I believe that THQ has crafted one of gaming’s most beautiful and intricately crafted tributes in this console generation. While staying original, Darksiders pays homage to popular titles such as Prince...
Review - Darksiders II (PS3)
on October 11, 2012 at 07:04 PM
The original Darksiders was highly criticized for it's "lack of originality", and now with a sequel among us, people are wondering if Darksiders 2 will creating something new, or provide much of the same. Darksiders 2 makes several improvements over Darksiders 1, but fails when it comes...
Death's Boring Embrace
on September 29, 2012 at 11:53 PM
The moment the original Darksiders concluded I was already anticipating the sequel. Thinking only great thoughts about how Vigil could expand upon its' mish-mash of tried and true concepts, I eagerly pre-paid and patiently waited this game to arrive. As it turns out, I waited for nothing. Instead...

Not Many Games Make You Feel As Good As Darksiders II
on September 04, 2012 at 10:04 AM
Darksiders II hooked me right from the start. As soon as I started playing, I loved the agility of the new protagonist, Death, and his fluidity as he scales walls and takes out multiple enemies at once with his scythes. Another thing that drew me in was summoning and banishing Death's horse, Dispair...
Better than the sum of (most of) it's parts.
on September 03, 2012 at 06:59 PM
As has been stated before, this game, like it's predecessor, takes a little from a lot of different places. Yet, despite that it manages to be it's own thing, and present some originality. yes, it takes from Zelda, but it's more fun than any Zelda game I've played since A Link to the...
A Great Way to Meet Death
on August 31, 2012 at 10:12 PM
I tend to think of the first Darksiders as being a bit like Frankenstein’s monster: It was a little ugly thanks to its technical flaws, it had a hard time telling a story, and it was stitched together using pieces of other legendary games. However, unlike the mad doctor’s monster, Vigil Games’...
Darksiders 2 is not what I had hoped for. It's still worth playing, by the slightest of margins.
on August 27, 2012 at 01:16 PM
This game is a disappointment to me. I absolutely loved the first game. But DS2 has just left me wanting more. It simply lacks the spark needed to keep me interested for more than an hour at a time. It's not a bad game, it just lacks in too many areas. It's a shame. :( I'm not a graphics...
My 'Quality Time' with Death.
on August 19, 2012 at 05:17 PM
'War' was the supernatural equivalent of a tank. Not much for humor, prefered bulky armor rather than figure-fitting attire and his own horse (Ruin) had a serious gripe to pick with him during their little 'reunion'. War was my dude. He stayed hooded up and every addition to his arsenal...
Darksiders II, another perspective
on August 16, 2012 at 08:49 PM
I am become death... Darksiders II, the next installment of the Four Horsemen story. Rather than continuing the storyline of the first game, this one takes place just after War's first fight with Straga. Death rides out to aid his brother, and find the truth behind his brother's imprisonment...
A Tribute to Fans
on August 14, 2012 at 10:37 PM
As the title states, this really is a tribute to the fans and improves upon every aspect of the first game. I truly have no real complaints, however I feel giving a 10 is a little too generous. The combat in this game is absolutely great. It's just so easy to pick up and feels great while playing...
on August 14, 2012 at 02:06 PM
The first Darksiders game was well received by the few fans who managed to really get into the game, and it's borrowed mechanics from several other successful franchises only managed to make the formula even better- skeptic as many may have been before trying it out. With a now almost "cult"...
