User Rating: 8.5 | Darksiders PS3
My buddy told me he was playing some game about the four horsemen and you played as War. He went on to say "it's a blast. Awesome action with great production value" Considering the lack of any new releases worth playing this month, I decided to give Darksiders a shot... and boy was I surprised to find such a well-made game for under 20$. First off, just because Darksiders wasn't an AAA release, doesn't mean the designers didn't create an AAA type game. No frame-rate issues in big battles, great art design, brutal combat, and fun puzzles, all create an extremely well put together title. I must tell you though, THIS GAME IS THE CHILD OF GOD OF WAR games. Darksiders blaintanly stole a lot of gameplay mechanics straight from Kratos. This doesn't have to be a bad thing though. God of War is a great game, and I have been dying to play a game like it since. Overall, Darksiders is worth the price and i must admit, I am now very excited for the sequel
