I first heard ofDarksiders at E3 2007, the show where we spent most of our time getting shuttled between hotels. It was described then as a "dark Zelda," and looked remarkably generic. I remember almost nothing about the presentation. The game simply...

The game ends with a really blatant sequel hook, and the buzz about the game is better than I thought it'd be. Darksiders could use a few overhauls to its combat system before it's a truly great game, but what's here is an entertaining series of...

Great story ; Smooth gameplay ; Nice voice acting ; Puzzle elements

Screen tearing!- Intimidating controls

Looking back to all the great games that came out last year, I think everyone will agree with me when I say that 2009 was the best year to be a video gamer. A lot of AAA titles came out throughout the entire year. Darksiders was not one of those games,...

The great thing about Darksiders having so many clear influences is you get to have what you love about a great swathe of games in one place; the visceral satisfaction from God of War, the balletic combat of Devil May Cry and the gadget fuelled...

To say that the combat in Darksiders is much like that of God of War and its dungeon design is a near-facsimile of modern Legend of Zelda games would be a fairly accurate description, but there is much more to this game than only simple analogies....

Darksiders is a triumph in game design, a platform to build upon, and something everyone who truly loves video games should try, because you'll likely love it.

Darksiders - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games


I've been waiting on Darksiders from the moment I heard the “horsemen of the apocalypse game” announcement at E3, and since then I've done my research. Pestilence, Famine, Death, War. These are the names of the four horsemen sent to the human world...

Review: Darksiders


This may come as a shock to some reading this, but in my opinion, originality is a bit overrated in games.  I use this in regard to gameplay itself.  It's always nice to see new series emerge.  However, gameplay can be completely derivative and it can...

Vigil Games has completed their first project, Darksiders, and they've shone a new light on the hack and slash. Read our full review from Kenny Esbenshade.

One thing you can say about Darksiders is that it isn’t original. It takes a lot of elements from highly revered games. But one thing you can’t say is that Darksiders is uninspired. The people at Vigil have obviously worked really hard to make sure...

It started life as an unknown game from an untested studio, but as we drew closer and closer to Darksiders' release date, people started to take notice. The incredible art design, the promise of ...

Darksiders review


Darksiders is one of the more original titles to hit the consoles this year, and even so early this year. Not exactly set in a post-apocalyptic world, but rather, a world where the apocalypse is actually happening, Darksiders seems like a sci-fi/dark...
