Darksiders is a third-person action-adventure game. The story is centered around the tale of the apocalypse, were you play as War, one of the Four Horsemen. The story begins as War is summoned, he arrives to find the apocalypse has started as demons and the Hellguard fight while humanity is destroyed.
War is told that the seven seals was not broken, and is blamed for the ordeal. War is given a second change and sent back to earth to find out what exactly happened. In Darksiders 2, the storyline is connected, as Death is trying to clear his bother War of the crimes from the first game.
Both games are very similar, both in weapons, gampelay, puzzle solving. Darksiders 2 is a more polished game, both in gameplay and graphics and overall more fluid.
I was a fan of the first Darksiders game, I never got a chance until now to play the sequel. It was a real shame that the trilogy never finished, I wish the rest of the other houseman’s story got told through game releases.
Closing Comments: This is a great collection for fans of hack and slash games.
