Darksiders is a mixture of God of War,DMC,n many other games,yet somehow it sucks you in the epic adventure of WAR.
STORY-A bit down story,,but good for a game that focuses on puzzles n combat,,the plot is definitely good,but not described like it should b(given the length of d game).
Combat-Frustrating at first,,but superb after u update your abilities.WAR has got a lot of moves(attacking as well as defensive n counters).Combat with RUIN(his horse) is equally enjoyable.Boss Fights are thrilling as many a times they require a bit thinking rather than going-beat 'em up....Chaos Mode is superb(as was in God Of War).Some bosses are though easier than other enemies n overall none is difficult to beat on any difficulty.
Graphics-Look cheap in the beginning areas,,but as u prosper u will realize that they get beautiful.Distinct environments are fun to explore(although these are a bit restricted).
Characters-Not powerful enough,,WAR looks definitely cool but d NPCs r not designed with heart(may b cause they weren't on d screen for a long time)
Puzzles-In the 1st 10-12 chapters puzzles r non-bothering,,u can easily crawl across them,,but they become difficult once u reach "The Black Throne"(the stage where u have 2 free that winged angel by getting electricity).It's also the biggest chapter of d game n can b a real pain in the a**.Afterwards the game return to it's usual mode.
Overall Darksiders is a game worth playing.If u do love roaming around,killing bada**es,solving puzzles it's for u.
P.S.-If u hate God Of War Series or Devil May Cry (impossible) u should avoid it!!!!!!!!
