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...87

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,...80

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...80

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...83
