Darksiders (Xbox 360)

 

While plenty of games are set in a postapocalyptic wasteland, not many let you participate in the actual end of the world. In the case of Darksiders, this is precisely where the action begins. Influenced by games like God of War and The Legend of...

Darksiders Review

 

Darksiders is a perfect example of a game that tries to do too much. But hey, it has Mark Hamill in it.

To say Darksiders is a jack of all trades but master of none, is a delicate way of putting it. The action is lively, but not special. Exploration is insinuated yet not fulfilling. The story is interesting, however, not gripping. All in all,...

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then Vigil Games’ Darksiders series hands out an awful lot of compliments to its peers. It apes its structure from The Legend of Zelda’s mixture of overworld and dungeons, its combat from the sanguineous...

Fighting never provides that gut-punching fluidity of impactful feedback that God of War achieves, traversal never scales the silky heights of Prince of Persia fleeting feet, loot collection never feels as satisfying as Diablo’s, and nothing within...

Darksiders II is huge. From the hulking, chunky characters and vast landscapes, to the towering bosses and the apocalyptic storyline, it's a whopping great big monster of a game, drawing on influences with statures to match. Everything about it is...

Darksiders II may not be the world-destroying beast we hoped it would be, but that doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyable. Whether you are jumping around on ledges, exploring the overworld, puzzling through dungeons or waving your massive axe around, there’s...

Darksiders II

 

Darksiders managed to surprise me, and a good portion of the gaming community, when it released in 2010 and ended up being pretty fantastic. It's unique art style paired with a fusion of The Legend of Zelda and God of War, and a more mature you versus...

Like many open-world games of this scale, you're bound to run into a few glitches. Unfortunately, a majority of the ones that plagued my time with the game were pretty serious. I fell out of the game world twice and a cut-scene didn't initiate when it...

Vigil Games brought us to War with the first Darksiders game. Where War is...Death is sure to follow, bringing us to the second installment in the Darksiders series. Paralleling the events from the first game, Death learns that the Charred Council...

Health and Wrath chests have also disappeared in Darksiders II. Potions instead have been implemented for quick use during battles. You can find potions in chests and destructibles in the environment, or purchase them from merchants. You are limited to...

It usually takes a few games for a franchise to really make their mark. Two of my favorite examples of this are Assassins Creed and Uncharted which

If this is THQ's first step towards validation – and perhaps a more concentrated future than the road it's been on – then it's a pretty goddamn major step. Darksiders II avoids the pratfalls of most sequels, following a "cookie cutter" formula of...

See what Death brings to the table inside.

Gameplay is fluid ; Lots to do in the game ; New abilities introduced at a nice tempo

Overall, Vigil Games has again done a great job with Darksiders 2. While the first title was relatively under the radar, this title should be one that is noticed and well received by all. A great title for action-adventure fans to enjoy and a step in...

Darksiders II Review

 

The latest adventure from developer Vigil Games proves that bigger isn't always better.

Despite its problems, I was compelled onward in my quest with Death because Darksiders II is simply a fun game. The RPG elements and to-the-point action all make for some solid gaming, glitches and all. It’s a shame so many glaring issues hold such an...
