after seeing some of the footage in this video I am much more interested than before.

just finished this today, 18 hours on apocaliptic, amazing game, early GOTY contender (for me of course)
and yes Jeff, the ending was damn good :D

I want this so bad but I need Mass Effect 2.

Great review Jeff. This is shaping up to be one hell of a Q1.

Posted by Drewbs

Good Review.

Nice and clear video review. Good horn use!

Great review. I feel it was pretty accurate. It's a great game, not the best it could have been, but damn good. It probably won't be my goty, but it will most likely be on my top 10. Working my way through Apocalyptic on my second playthrough now.

I think this is definitely the first big surprise of 2010.

GREAT ending.  Man, why didn't I think of that?!  LOL 
Great review, as I said before.  This game really deserves some attention and some money in Vigil's pockets.

This has to be the best game of January! Whenever I pick up and play I spend near four to five hours straight just immersed in the gameplay.

Posted by Kibblez

Looking forward to playing this

Posted by stevemanu

Hmmm might rent this.

Posted by MildMolasses
Normally being the best game in January wouldn't be much of an accomplishment, but this year it would really mean something. 
Unfortunately, it's debatable whether or not Darksiders was the best game to come out that day. That's more of a testament to the quality of games we're getting, not a slag on Darksiders
Posted by RobotHamster

Looks a lot better than I was expecting it to be.

Posted by azrael76

Yeah give him the horn! 
Great game been playing it all week, hopefully it'll achieve the rare distinction of being one of the games I actually complete in one run.
Posted by JohnRabbit

This is a spot-on review.
Darksiders is a textbook case of "its all in the presentation". Tthe seemingly disparate parts it has harvested from other games are brought together in such stylized and high-quality way that you can forgive almost every single  "I've seen this before" moment.

Geez, I feel like this game totally blindsided me and became one of my gotta get games.

Posted by oMagnus

wasnt really all that excited for this, but now im totalllyyyy lusting

Posted by Robiin

If my gaming budget wouldn't be FILLED UP FOR THE COMPLETE FIRST QUARTER OF THE YEAR, I would get this.
I needed caps, because getting these many good games in q1is really a weird thing to witness.

Posted by InFamous91

Definitely wlll be purchasing this sometime next month.

Posted by Carlos

Bought the game for 40bucks/free shipping on newegg =D will get it tuesday, can't wait!

lol, love the fade to black with the horn blaring constantly.
Posted by SoftButtCheeks

what a tremendous ending to a review

Posted by Rio

I want to get this now, just dont know If I can get myself to spend the money.

Posted by glitznglamstyle68

What a gem this game is. A nice and unexpected surprise. I love the heavily inspired Zelda and Metroidvania structure. And the combat on top of your steed (Ruin) is absolutely badass. I'd love to see even more steed combat in a sequel.  
You've done well Vigil. I can't believe such a great game came out of a brand new rookie developer. I do know that you guys have a lot of NCsoft talent there, so that's a good thing. The most surprising thing is that some of the lead folks on this were responsible for the absolutely horrid 50 Cent: Bulletproof. Crrrazy!
Posted by FuzzYLemoN

The quick look un-sold me on this game, but this review has re-sold me. :D

Posted by Stinky51012

Still dont care about this game. Zelda blows anyway.

Posted by sandwich_adjustment

oh man he did the DubHorn thing with the warhorn

Posted by Jerrek

I reaaaaaally want this game..

Posted by Carlos1408

I didn't really know what this game was about lol and it was completely out of my radar, but it looks kind of cool after watching this. If i get a chance to check it out cheaply I might. Great review Jeff. :D

Posted by Vorbis

For a companies first game, they're off to a good start.

Posted by FunExplosions

Fantastic.  Makes me want to jump back into the wind waker, but at the same time reminds me of that damn tri-force piece gathering crap.

Posted by RHCPfan24

Nice ending! Excellent review too!! I had no idea what this game was about but you summed it up perfectly, Jeff. I will pick it up down the road.

Posted by TheKing

This is the Zelda game I always wanted. Really enjoying it.

Posted by sithy

I'll horn you bitch.

Posted by Lokno

Nice review, I'd play this game right away (always up for a good Zelda clone) if it wasn't for the unappealing setting and premise. The ending of this review is hilarious. 

Posted by JackSukeru

Yup, looks good. Getting it!

Posted by Badfysh

i been lookin forward to this game since i first heard about it got it first day and i gota say, its fuckin amazing deff give it a look

Posted by Banjo_ace

looks good but pass 

Posted by Shirogane

Still can't figure out what these late game Zelda references he's talking about apart from the collecting one he mentioned are...
Edited by Lazyaza
This game is amazing, such diverse fun gameplay and a big world full of large spaces with many things to do in them.  I really liked the story and the ending was awesome as it setup the sequel really nicely.  The entire visual design style is also one of the best I have ever seen in any game ever, its got such a comic-book mid 90s cartoon feel to it.
Posted by Derecto

New IP, not that orginal, but hey its not a SEQUEL.....

Posted by JJOR64

I want this game even more now.
