Developer: Vigil GamesPublisher: THQPlatform: PC (Reviewed), XBox 360, PS3Price: $39.95Darksiders walks an interesting line. On one side, it practically steals large pieces of inspiration from The Legend of Zelda and God of War. On the other side, it...

When Darksiders originally came out on the consoles earlier this year I sadly had little time to experience it other than a handful of times at a colleague’s house due to whatever game I was playing at the time. Now my chance to embrace the Horseman...

It isn’t very often that an action adventure game in the same vein as The Legend of Zelda or God of War comes to the PC. It’s even less often that such a game that is actually worth playing comes to the platform. Luckily for PC gamers, Darksiders is...

If you are the type to believe that most games are just shameless copies of other, better games, then it'd be easy to call Darksiders, after a few minutes playing, a copy of God of War. In those minutes, it's easy to see: tough, gruff, stern...

PC Gamers need not be jealous of the console action-adventure genre anymore, for War has arrived and is bringing forth the Apocalypse with him. Darksiders, the Zelda-like game about the end of the world, finally makes the long awaited jump to the PC....

Darksiders is a port of the PS3/360 title that was released earlier this year. As a rabid PC gamer, I am almost always wary of (some would say overtly biased against) console ports. I think it's the bad taste in my mouth left by the botched console...

Darksiders isn’t the type of title that often appears on PC, and for that reason alone it's worth a look. Vigil’s culled popular gameplay mechanics and puzzle elements from a variety of different titles and effectively combined them to create...

International Review By GamingXP on 83

Alles in allem kann ich den Titel nur wärmstens empfehlen. Nicht nur, weil am PC wenig bis überhaupt keine Spiele dieser Art erscheinen, sondern vor allem, weil das Gameplay sehr gelungen ist. Zwar steht das Kämpfen im Vordergrund, doch wird mit...

International Review By Gamezoom.net on 90

Darksiders klaut zwar frech von der God of War-Serie und Bayonetta (sogar etwas Portal haben wir entdeckt), doch kann man angesichts der gebotenen Qualität gerne über diese „Tat“ hinwegsehen. Frei nach dem Motto „lieber gut geklaut, als schlecht...

International Review By Looki.de on 85

von Björn Plantholt Zum PC-Vollpreis bietet die Hellbook-Edition mehr Inhalt als ihn die Konsolenspieler für ihr Geld erhalten. Außerdem wurde Darksiders derart gut auf den PC portiert, dass es nach der Einarbeitungsphase richtig Spaß macht, den...

International Review By OnlineWelten on 88

Wo Krieg die Hauptrolle spielt, ist auch wirklich Krieg drin. In einem Geplänkel um Macht, Intrigen und den persönlichen Vorteil zeigt sich die ekelerregende Fratze der menschlichen, himmlischen und höllischen Psyche, die dank unserem Protagonisten...
