War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, was implicated for causing the destruction of humanity. Stripped of his powers, he is set to go against Heaven and Hell to find his fellow Horsemen and clear his name.
The Darksiders present impressive boss graphics and character animations with beautiful visual and audio effects. Progressive combo streaks and finishing moves are similar to games like God of War. Sans the hints, the puzzles and dungeons can be pretty challenging but the rewards are not as exciting.
War's two-handed sword Chaoseater is his primary weapon. A revolver and a throwing blade as secondary weapons with unique combo styles will be obtained as the game progresses. Along the way, War also learns magic-based attacks called Wrath, thus the game subtitle Wrath of War. The environment is very interactive. People, cars, and debris can be picked up and used as weapons. Demon Growth on walls, as well as cables and horizontal poles, can be used to traverse through platforms.
Although most PC gamers complain about the video options being non-existent, the game still receives 83 stars out of 100. Otherwise, this game is as great as Zelda and Devil May Cry.
