All the "God of War + Zelda" comparisons pretty much bring this one to the top of my want list. SOMEONE GIVE ME A JOB! :(

the controls are definitely not the best and get in the way a bit, but I still think its worth playing. not the greatest game I've ever played, but it's pretty solid and a cool zelda/GoW hybrid.



I definitely see the God of War/Zelda comparison, but agree with most of the reviews that say it's closer to Zelda than GoW. I think the leveling up of abilities and weapons is more like GoW than the actual gameplay, since Darksiders is in full 3D while GoW has a fixed perspective. Maybe more like Zelda/Ninja Gaiden?

I'm nearing the end of the game and am really enjoying the ride. It has great voice acting (Mark Hamill!), an engaging story, lots of beat-em-up fighting and some pretty satisfying puzzles, although nothing I've found too complex. I haven't had a problem with the controls once I got used to it, although it may help if you've played some fighting games like Bayonetta or Devil May Cry.

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes these types of games (action w/ puzzles, platforming, etc.) It's a well done game with a lot of polish.

I think this game, as well as Bayonetta will either make it into the spend 80 get 20 deal for amazon or a TRUS Buy 1, get one half off (maybe even a B2G1). At the very least, the next gamestop, buy 2, get one free, should be far enough in the future to catch these there. Thats' what I'm waiting for. Hopefully i'll catch darksiders bayonetta and dante's inferno in the same deal.


Oh yeah, good idea! $34 apiece would be awfully hard to pass up, especially if I go in with my brother and let him have Bayonetta, which out of the three I'm kinda "Meh" about. :roll:

Btw, anyone else find it kinda interesting that Darksiders, Bayonetta and Dante's Inferno all have the Christian faith influence in them, all released around the same time? :-k

I have it on PS3. I haven't played it in about a week because I ordered the guide (which is taking forever to get here. Sold out everywhere so I got it from an Amazon seller who seems to have sent it Media Mail so who knows if I'll ever see it). It's a damn good game. None of the puzzles are impossible or annoying. There's one in the second dungeon where I kept wandering around the room thinking "WTF am I supposed to do?" but I eventually figured it out (and that's a great feeling).

Definitely worth buying, especially if you just have a 360 which doesn't have a great selection of action/adventure games.

I think a contributing factor to me enjoying the game was playing it just after beating Bayonetta. Now that games dodging has to be exact so you get to slow down time and they work in much the same way so it was an easy transition. I actually enjoyed the game overall more than Bayonetta, but I think Bayonetta was more entertaining because it was non-stop action. Darksiders was more of an explore the game when you want (just like Zelda, duh) so it broke up the action parts.

Can definitely recommend the game at this price. Damn good game, doesn't have any flaws but the main concern is its not really super original on anything, but everything works excellent as expected (even us gamers ultra high expectations) and its fun, what more ya need.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

I find myself in a similar situation. I just beat Bayonetta last night and while I have a ton of unfinished games I was thinking about opening either this or AC2 next.

Ha, yeah. I was sitting here contemplating whether or not I should buy it (I really want to play it) but as soon as I saw it was sold out, I was bummed but kind of relieved. I hope Amazon does price match it, I'll jump on it then.

I rented this game since I can't afford the purchase at the moment but I did not put it down until I beat it when it came out.

This game is totally worth 40$ and I am probably alone when I say this but this game is way better than Bayonetta.

Bayonetta is only about 8 hours long and yes it does have high replay value but I felt that a majority of the game was just straight up frustrating even on normal. I had my index finger hurting from constantly dodging to get Witch Time.

And yes it's much more like Zelda because the four chosen bosses have nothing but huge dungeons + puzzles.

I agree with you ALMOST 100%. As I said in an earlier post Bayonetta is much more fun in short bursts or for just some non-stop really fun action, the dodging is insane, but it actually helped me a lot for Darksiders on Apocalyptic difficulty which is what I played first to get some trophies. It is a great homage to Zelda and my ONLY TWO issues with the game is getting souls is a bit annoying when you need to farm for them and the game is too short, I wish it were longer. I got through it on the hardest difficulty and got all the trophies in 4 days (around 24-25 hours).

The videos of this game made me think me of more action-oriented Fable.


Couldn't be more wrong IMO. I decided to finally play Fable 2 a few months back and while I don't regret owning it, it was no where near as good as I hopped it would have been.

How do Darksiders, Bayonetta and Dante's Inferno all have some Christian faith influences in them? Darksiders has War battling both angels and demons, Bayonetta takes on angels and as for Dante's Inferno, well...come on, he's going to hell. ;)
