Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth.
Brought before the sacred Charred Council, War is indicted for his crimes and stripped of his powers. Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible.
Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.

Darksiders in it's heart is a Metroidvania RPG game, which means, you have a huge world map, or rather, lots of maps, that are connected to each other, and you can move among them freely, and explore them. In the meantime, hordes of demons and monsters attack you, and you have to fend for yourself. You can collect souls on your journey, which you can spend on upgrades, and items, and you have to solve a lot of puzzles as well. The game looks great. If I'm not mistaken Seth McFarlane was the one, who designed/reimagined christian mythology, and it just looks badass. The angels in particular look so cool, but that is only the beginning. Really, just watching this game is more fun, then most games can be. There are many weapons. You start off with a huge sword, but in time you will regain all of WAR's arsenal, and power. There are guns, bombs, and other stuff, and no kidding, even a portal gun in this game. That latter one is a little contextual though. The voice acting is great, and while War talks with the same grizzled voice, it really works, and can give you the chills in some scenes, especially in the last.
This game is the perfect combination of perfect games, undoubtedly made me spend hours and hours of this great game, being a big fan of God of war gave me an incredible nostalgia of the mechanics when playing it is a GREAT game and will make anyone which at least likes or attracts a bit the genre will love not to love the game as I did from the beginning, the story great graphics incredible and the gameplay very easy to understand.
Eh, it's ok if you didn't get the reference. If curious, check out Piers Anthony and his books. Anywho, on with the game review. Darksiders is a really fun game for those who like paranormal stuff and all of that. A lot of interesting visuals and good gameplay, it is a hard game to pass up when on sale, as it is now for $4 which is a steal for all that you get for a few dollars. Hours of enjoyment roughing up denizens of the dark to get vengeance as well as clear his name.
Darksiders was incredibly good game, a perfect mix of Legend of Zelda puzzles, platforming sections straight from excellent Prince of Persia games and reliable and responsive fighting system just like in God of War. Explosive concoction that actually works. And as a cherry on this incredible sundae is art direction envisioned by Joe Madureira, creator (writer and penciler) of Battle Chasers. Soundtrack is also great and gameplay really works. Only thing bad in this game is backtracking in the end, other than that it's great. Remastered could've used some polish, because there are some problems, but it's not as bad as some recent games are. If you never played Darksiders, you definitely must pick this up, especially if you love the games I previously mentioned, because it is a perfect mix of those franchises, with nice story to top it off.
This game combines the dungeon exploration mechanics of Zelda (where you must find the weapon/ability that is required to solve the puzzles in said dungeon) with the combat system of God of War. Given that both are popular franchises, it seems like a good idea on paper. Since neither of those two franchises are available on Steam, Darksiders is the best available alternative for those that do not own any consoles. However, playing Darksiders simply made me compare it with the games in those two franchises and how they did everything better. To make things worse, the original aspects of Darksiders are mediocre at best in my opinion. I would recommend it only to those that has never played a Zelda or God of War game before.
