Darksiders

Posted by Traegan (111 posts) -

I just finished Darksiders and I must say, the game is awesome.  I knew it was a Zelda homage going into it.  When comparing to Zelda, for my taste, I approve of easier puzzles and more sword play/weapons.  Was extremely impressed with the story.  I would definitely pick up a Darksiders 2 if it were to come, especially if it has co-op.  Nice job Vigil.

Yup, it's a great game. A sequel has been announced, scheduled for a 2012 release.

Darksiders was one of those pleasant surprises of last year for me.  I, too, was impressed at how good the story was, and I enjoyed the gameplay despite its quirks.

I was psyched for it from the moment they announced it and the game didn't disappoint. I'm certainly buying the sequel day one.

Bought it for 10 bucks off steam the other week and would gladly have paid double for it

Loved every minute until the final boss fight. I kept dying and traded in the game. Still, I thought it was awesome.

Same here. I'm just hoping for co-op in the next game.

The ending just screams co-op to me :)


If anyone out there is considering getting this game, I would recommend in a heartbeat.
