Re: Games Review Thread
ESRB Rating: M
The story is unique, and interesting. Entirely epic. Playing as one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse has never been presented so awesomely.
As a person who would be happy with Atari graphics, I can't say I care too much about graphics. But, the graphics are very good. The gore looks nice, and so does the entire Darksiders world.
The sound is not the greatest thing ever. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time for the Super Nintendo excels there. The Darksiders soundtrack definitely works though.
It is pretty much a copy of God of War and Legend of Zelda, but hell, what's wrong with that? Don't all games pretty much use ideas from other games? Granted others aren't quite as obvious. Darksiders' gameplay is some of the best. The camera angles are great, the targeting system is the best I've seen. it's just great.
Lasting Appeal: 9.5/10
It's a story game. Playing it more than once probably won't be as interesting. However, it's also a hack and slash/RPG, the best kind of story to replay. Since the story was so good though, that makes it more enjoyable. I definitely will buy the second.
Darksiders does not necessarily reach the levels of awesome that its inspirations known as God of War and Legend of Zelda. But it does make a name for itself. It's a good game, I would say that anyone interested in this style of game, should give it a shot.
