The Zelda clone nobody knows exist and is now copying Diablo is coming to a PC near you very soon. I personally like the series very much and like the different approaches all three games took giving them each a distinct flavor.

II and III were good to me. The problem with III is that it tried to be Dark Souls but wasn't very good at it. Still liked it well enough.

It's a good albeit unremarkable series. I personally like it a lot.

I'm replaying Darksiders 3 only that I find Fury to be a deadlier then Beyonetta herself. I been enjoying Darksiders series for a long time, I'm gonna get Darksiders Genesis on GoG, looks promising :)

The game can be challenging but on lowest difficulty? You upgraded your stats I should hope?

I love the series, DS1 is one of my favorite last gen games, 2 I also really enjoyed even though it had a slooow start, and I'm looking forward to digging into 3 soon. I hope Genesis does well and we get a forth game in the main series.

Supporting Stadia before consoles, yeah pretty stupid putting it on something that doesn't have a fanbase over 2 consoles that do.

I am in the haven north end area. The problem is I get overwhelmed with enemy numbers and can’t focus on them one at a time. And i die way too quickly.

@Gamerno6666: Don't feel bad, I play it on normal and even then, it can be a real challenge but the trick is, do not go full hacking/slashing, it's all about timing your attacks and you got to counter to take advantage but even so, I can die from ranger attackers while focusing only one enemy. I can agree it's too much Dark Souls influence and shouldn't be part of a hack n slash genre. I focus on both Arcane & Health upgrading cause I'll be countering attack more so.

I actually found the writing to be quite good and Lord of the Hollow is easily my favorite.

@Juub1990: personally I thought first one was great, second was dull and third was a bit of a mess that had some potential but ultimately ended up being way to repetitive for me to bother to finish it

Yeah, this looks very interesting. I also like the dual protagonist setup.

I prefer the Zelda/GoW style for Darksiders, but this game looks good. I will play it.

I honestly love this series. The 3rd one wasn't of the highest quality but I still enjoyed it. The best franchise Nordic games saved from THQ in my Opinion.

It's the art style and story that really sell it for me.

For me it's just a good blend of God of War and Zelda, which are two series I absolutely love.

First Darksiders had God of War combat with Zelda dungeons and puzzles.

@Gamerno6666: There was this patch for the game that changes the combat style to be more like Darksiders 1&2, maybe that could help you along?

I think this franchise would work well in an isometric action-rpg genre. Consider me excited.

I love Darksiders; I don't know if I should consider it a guilty pleasure given that so many people seem to (oddly) dislike it, but I think it's pretty great.

I love the comic-book epicness of it, the grim-dark Christianity-inspired atmosphere coupled with other religions, and the bulk of the characters are really great too.

The gameplay is also pretty solid. It's a nice repreive from the trial-and-error of Soulsborne clones out there. As mentioned earlier in the thread, Darksiders 3 tried to go in this direction and it was a disservice to the series, but you can change the game mode to traditional Darksiders.

I think Darksiders 2 was my favorite.

I hate any game that is dark souls or copies it.

I recently tried Nioh and was upset it was identical to dark souls. Terrible way to play games. No fun at all.

Only the third one has some similarities to Dark Souls. Not really in the combat but in the way it handles deaths, checkpoints, enemies spawn etc.

@mrbojangles25: I didn’t notice many people disliking it. People either like it well enough or haven’t played it or are different to it.

@R4gn4r0k: I am on the latest patch. Still getting my arse handed to me. The gameplay feels like it wants you to focus on small number of enemies but in certain areas of the game there are a lot of enemies who overwhelm me and i die within 10s. Maybe i will give the game another chance in the future but i cannot force myself now to play a game like this.
