Darksiders: Wrath of War

 

In the past January was one of those months that had a distinctly unappealing air to it if you were a gamer. Usually an empty void in terms of quality titles, it would be a shock if you had even a couple of average games to come to grips with, let...

This game is a pleasant surprise and will keep you hooked while it lasts. Sure the story may be pure hokum, but the gameplay is rock solid. This is Zelda for a more mature audience and is yet another great January release – who'da thunk it?

Whether you're an experienced gamer or a beginner, there are always certain things you expect from games. Of course, it's impossible to make everyone happy. For action games many elements have become a necessity. Therein lies the debatable aspect of...

Darksiders hinges upon every game you've ever played in your life, but it does so with dignity and style, with splendid character animation, great artwork, top-notch music, sounds and voiceovers, topping it all off with challenging gameplay... In spite...

Players won't feel the need to make use of all the weapons and abilities at War's disposal, It sponges off of just about every gameplay concept ever designed, frequent backtracking makes the experience longer than necessary

Darksiders (Xbox 360) Review

 

A post-apocalyptic action title, Darksiders puts players in the shoes of the Horseman of War. We pick apart Vigil Games' debut project, with amazing results.

The wide variety of play is notable. War can traverse just about any terrain and proves to be a remarkably adept swimmer despite his bulk. His monstrous physique also comes in handy when he needs to solve ancient puzzles or collect nasty stuff for...

There was a time when Joe Madureira WAS comic books. The famed pencil-man, most famous for his work on titles like Uncanny X-men and Battle Chasers, ole' Joe Mad seemed to be one of the leading young forces set to revolutionize comics.

Stick with Cheat Happens for the latest Darksiders cheats and hints.

Darksiders Review

 

We're only a couple weeks into 2010 but already it's getting interesting. Darksiders, the debut effort of fledgling company Vigil Games, may just be the sleeper hit of the year. At first glance, the game has obvious gameplay similarities to Sony's God...

Despite a couple of strange mechanical issues and a handful of bugs, Darksiders is a significant accomplishment, even for a well-established company. For a new one like Vigil to pull it off is impressive indeed. Although the game has minor tech...

Freakishly brutal and beautiful.

Darksiders: Wrath of War Xbox 360 Review

 

Vigil's debut release is a diamond in the rough.

Given Darksiders is the first release from developer Vigil Games, it's an impressive debut. Masterfully crafted, Darksiders is clearly a work of passion, and though it borrows a lot of elements from other games, they come together in such a way that...

its zelda

 

weird game melding fictional use of biblical themes and characters with Zelda: Ocarina of Time all the way down to using a hook shot and riding around a pony but everything is run down and on fire populated with demons instead of happy trees and...

Its Zelda! An angry, serious, and violent Zelda ; well done and enjoyable despite being a by-the-numbers imitation ; makes use of well known voice talent ; easy 1000 gs

takes itself a little too seriously ; controls can be flaky at times, especially on horseback ; horse usage is mostly confined to the @2 areas designed around its use making what would be super useful in getting around almost useless
