Good Zelda like game.

 This game is great if you liked Zelda you will like this game. It's basically Zelda but with a more adult theme and a more robust story. Are there things I didn't like about it shit ya. Are they ignorable? Depends on your tolerance and game play preferences. Me I'm not a huge fan of hack and slash games like god of war and this is one of those hack 'n' slash games as far as the combat goes. But I will work my way through them for a interesting story and other gameplay elements I do like. There is a good pacing to this game with a good mix of combat and puzzles/exploration so I didn't find the combat so tedious as I do in God Of War type games.

The voice work is kinda hit and miss but again you can get past it for some of the really good VO I personally was not entirely happy with War's voice actor not because he was bad per-say but because his voice got on my nerves. But I loved one of the demons you keep running in to for the first chunk of the game. I also found a few scenes cut off too quickly and some go on for longer then they needed too. But overall a good pacing to the story as well.

All that said any Zelda fan should give this a look see. I found it pretty fun overall. And would put it up there with my must play games this gen.

The overall game structure and use of puzzle-filled enclosed areas are reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda series and its temples. The platforming elements seem most directly taken from God of War, and the...

    Though its intro sequence is the biblical apocalypse, Darksiders doesn't make a good first impression; the beginning areas of the game don't differ much from the standard God of War levels, the combat feels much too simple, there's all of one combo to dispatch enemies, and the story sounds like something a fourteen-year-old has been kicking around in his head until he had the chance to apply it to some form of media. The character models look nice and stylized, but look a bit too much like Warcr...
