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.

    A great inspired hybrid game but not without flaws 0

    Many similarities have been drawn between Darksiders and games such as Zelda, God of War, Portal and so on. All of these comparisons are fair but it’s more accurate to say that the game is simply a massive hybrid of good game design; an homage to other games we’ve all enjoyed or at least heard about. Bad-ass-ery incarnate Whether you think of it as simply derivative or not their is no question that Darksiders pulls off every borrowed mechanic and similar idea just as well as the games it seems ...
