Typical Hack-n-Slash Gamenudeood | Sept. 5, 2013 | See all nudeood's reviews »
I had never played a game like this before because the genre doesn't interest me, but if you're a big fan of third-person hack-n-slash games then you may want to give it a try. In Darksiders you play as 'War', one of the horsemen of the apocalypse. This sounds really cool in theory, but you never feel as though you get to use any of the power than such a being would have. The game becomes very repetitive early on, since all you do is run around and slice up a bunch of enemies in melee combat. Some of the weapons and upgrades are nice, but they don't dynamically change the way you play the game, they just act as a way to encourage you to keep playing to unlock more.
