Games Review: Darksiders
Format PS3, Xbox 360
Darksiders begins with the end of the world. War, one of the four horsemen, rides to Earth to oversee heaven and hell's final battle but, before he knows what's going on, he's charged with breaking a holy pact and stripped of his powers. The game proper, an engaging mix of Zelda-style dungeons and God of War-like combat, relates War's quest to punish those responsible for setting him up. You may have seen many of Darksiders' puzzles before but rarely delivered with such panache, while sword-swinging combat is never far away and always entertaining.
