CBVGR: Darksiders


Welcome to the Clearance Bin Video Game Review by Organized Remains. Darksiders is the game I'm playing today. This game just came out in January, but you can find it for $20 used or $40 new. I'm playing it for the PS3, but it's also available for the 360. It also will be available for the PC in June for $40.

Take the role of War, one of the Four Horsemen who is followed by The Watcher to help you throughout your journey. The game starts off telling you the Seventh Seal is broken, and that's a big problem. You are summoned to Earth to fix everything up, and to make sure everyone has a nice day, colon right parentheses.

In order to make sure everyone has a nice day, you must kill kill, and kill some more. Tons of enemies in this game, and a lot of different ones may I add. Some require a few slashes, while some require some strategy to kill. The enemies in this game looked really cool, as for my character... it might just be me, but I think he could have been cooler looking.

The game also offers powers, a guy to buy weapons and upgrades from, and wings to glide around with. We've all seen this stuff before, but that doesn't mean Darksiders is a waste. It also offers some nice puzzles to the game. After seeing tons and tons of enemies, and getting bored with that, the puzzles are a nice break from all the action. Think Tomb Raider, but a guy, giant sword, and all hell has broken loose... ok don't think Tomb Raider.

The map to this game can get to be pretty big during the game, and the scenery looks really nice if you're into "the world is coming to an end" scenery. While I have not beaten the game yet, I have read that it will take around 20 hours, so that's not bad for a $20 game.

Final Say: When I've played a game for a couple of hours, and I'm still having fun with it, I know that the game is worth the pick-up from the Clearance Bin. While killing enemy after enemy might get a little tiresome, the puzzles will keep you glued to the screen. So if you like adventure, killing tons of demons, figuring out puzzles, and a game that you won't beat in just one afternoon. $20 for Darksiders is not a bad price, and if you see this video awhile after it has been out, it will probably be around the $10 price. Also paying the full price of $40 at their website would show support for a second Darksiders, and that would not be a bad thing colon right parentheses.
