Manufacturer's Description

Darksiders is a third-person, single player action/adventure game inspired by the characters, themes and mythology of the apocalypse and the battle of Armageddon described by the Book of Revelation. But this modern interpretation is not your run of the mill Sunday school stroll through the New Testament. In the game players take on the role of "War," one of the dread Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. But things are not as they were.

Once the unstoppable and just wielder of divine retribution, War is now reduced in stature and cast out amongst the ruined lands of the Earth that he himself devastated. All that remains is the search for the truth behind his betrayal and the survival of its consequences.

The Story
Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War - the first Horseman of the Apocalypse - stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between heaven and hell. Dishonored and stripped of his powers, War must return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible. But there is no clear definition of good and evil in this tale. Hunted by a vengeful group of angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vindication. But the answers he seeks will reveal a deep conspiracy in which War will find, and have to resign himself to the reality that although once the hand of God, he is just a pawn in the eternal battle between heaven and hell.

A mix of exploration and fast-paced action gameplay, Darksiders is based on nonlinear play situations. That means that as War slowly regains his previous powers of destruction and carnage in order to continue his search for the origins and reasons for his betrayal, players will be able to backtrack to areas and scenarios that they may have left unexplored upon first discovery. Almost all areas of the game can be explored and some of the things players will find as they do so are treasure chests, health chests, and bonus life points, etc. The ability to go back and explore areas is important, especially as the game progresses and War finds himself up against enemies whose defeat require special skills and/or weaponry.

As for combat gameplay, Darksiders features a variety of weapons--including blades and firearms--that can be used in combo moves or in single strikes. Some of these can be charged up for quick, but devastating attacks on enemies and all can be arranged on your controller's D-pad for easy and preferred access. Additional gameplay elements include the ability/necessity to fight from the back of your mount, Ruin, and the collection of the souls in the form of glowing orbs that fall to the ground as enemies are dispatched. The latter can be used to level up War with new items and abilities.

Varied Characters and Environments
Although players take on the imposing role or War, Darksiders also contains a wide variety of equally intriguing and sometimes frightening characters. These include: an assortment of vengeful angels; demons, such as "the Jailer" whose body is made up of the remains of countless cadavers; a bestiary of wicked and vile creatures created to bolster the armies of hell on Earth; and Ruin, the trusty steed of War. Gameplay environments players will experience are equally varied, and include areas both underground and on the surface, that call to mind both familiar, if ruined modern urban environments, as well as ones seemingly pulled from the nightmarish scenes of the biblical apocalypse.

Darksider, or the legend of Zel-gore as my friends have started calling it, is a deceptive little title that a demo could do little to show off all it has to offer. Right, I'm no fan of paragraphs of babble so I'm gonna break it down into a list of pros and cons that'll hopefully aid you in your buying decision in fun size, easily digestible chunks. So here goes:

- Fantastically well planned out level designs and dungeons that'll bring a smile to your face in between the very tiny amounts of enjoyable head scratching (as is typical of the action RPG genre).
- The shear amount of fantastic weapons and gadgets you'll end up using cover so many bases as far as movement, transportation and offence are concerned that you'll wonder how they implemented so much (and so well) in such a tidy package - what many games (such as dark sector for one) use as their whole basis and main gimmick is just one of many, many elements that Darksiders has on offer.
- The character models are big and extremely well designed and implemented (due in no small amount I'll wager to the extreme artistic talents of Joe `Battle Chasers' Madureira) and look cool, brutal and awesome in equally magnificent portions.
- The voice acting is cool as a cucumber.
- The environments are magnificent and contain some really nice touches such as sulphuric burning air flowing from pits of lava, souls rising from the fetid earth and newspapers blowing in the wind and all of this adds to the atmosphere which is already in abundance.
- Back to the character models: the bosses and some of the more behemoth sized characters give you a sense of awe not seen in many titles and are all animated with aplomb.

I made this mistake of picking this up off the Playstation Network. Only after pressing buy did I realise it's over 10gb, and I only have the 120gb ps3! So it's worth getting the disc version from Amazon instead if only to save that space.

That said this game is epic. In the veins of God of War, but with a huge arsenal of weapons and some awesome upgrades to choose from as you advance. The game is huge, with epic fight scenes consisting of waves of increasinly hard enemies. Smooth progression ensures the difficulty stays about on task (I'd go with hard if you've ever tried this genre before), and the story drags you along at a fair pace considering the huge number of hours required to finish this tome.

The sense of scale is massive, and the character drawings really do the ps3's cell processor justice. It's lush. However some recylcing is evident with the game sending you back and forth over the same terrain, and the death moves get stale long before the credits roll. For that I'm giving it a 4. It's one you should own.

This game was brilliant. Just finished it on Normal this morning after 22 hours of play and have just started playing it again on apocalyptic difficulty.
The game caught me by surprise as I did not initially enjoy it. I felt the graphics were too comic-like but after a couple of hours was hooked.
I won't go on too much but I highly recommend this game - buy it, rent it, etc - just make sure you play it.
Fantastic open world - great animation and graphics - great battles and puzzles - interesting upgrades!!!

Would give it a 4.8 out of 5.

Wish they had created some DLC or extras to keep the game play going.
Thats it for now.

So the games starts and you have absolutetly no clue what's going on. Through some cutscenes you find out that someone has summoned you and you have destroyed earth. poor earth :(. You loose all your powers and you're pretty much someones pet because he orders you to go there and kill that boss then bring its heart back, I didn't mind this at all.

The story is epic because you're one of the 4 riders of the apocalypse, war! You have your horse and your weapons and as deeper you continue you get new upgrades and weapons that kept me from feeling bored.

The gameplay is pretty much like God of War but hey, I play alot of action games and they're all pretty much the same.

The graphics and sound are awesome! I like them alot.

I had tons of fun playing the game,`and I would recommend it to anyone who likes killing endless waves of demons :-P.

The only thing that I didn't like it that ccliffhanger ending that leads to 3 other sequels.. oh come 3 more??

I hope they don't mess up what they're worked so hard building, and they did work hard you can tell by playing the game.

4/5 for me

You play as War, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. For Eons you have intervened and
kept a truce between the forces of Heaven and Hell. In the present day, angels and demons fall to Earth and the final apocalyptic battle begins. You arrive on Earth amidst the chaos; realising that the other horsemen have not arrived and that the Seventh Seal of peace has not been broken. It's up to you to restore the balance and find the one who's responsible for this treachery.

War may not be the most compelling horseman, but there is a fearsome presence about him. From its inception, the premise is intriguing but it is in the telling of the tale that the game falters —
it can be hard to figure out exactly what is going on at times, although the overall structure of the game is simple enough.

G R A P H I C S & S O U N D
At a first glance this game may lack the wow factor when it comes to laying eyes on the visuals for the first time, but rest assured, the scope of this game will blow your socks off. The world has quite frankly gone to s***, cities are dusty ruins, highways lead to nowhere and giant wastelands house all kinds of scum. The art direction is both imaginative and gothic, large cathedrals loom into the sky, satanic markings fill the world and gladiator arenas welcome the bravest of warriors.

War’s character model is chunky and lovingly decorated with plenty of armour; the sheer size of his hands would make you think twice about shaking hands with the dude. The forces of heaven and hell are highly distinguished in their ranks of appearances; exaggerated character models add another level of fantasy to the experience (no, not that kind!). The stand out character design is awarded to War’s horse Ruin, the legendary flaming steed.
