You'll be playing as one of the Four Horsemen, the red rider, War. Your duty is to maintain the balance of good and evil as a neutral force. However, during the time when you were prematurely summoned to earth, a chain of unfortunate events began to take place, leaving the race of mankind extinct. Charged with destroying the grand balance between heaven and hell, you were sent to Earth once again to find answers and to clear your name.
While exploring the Darksiders' apocalyptic world, you'll be facing the forces of both heaven and hell that creeps out. Do not be threatened however, for you will be highly equipped with devastating weapons in your arsenal. Apart from having a primary weapon (a massive sword), you can also equip a secondary weapon (such as your brother Death’s scythe). You can switch them in a blink of an eye, turning waves of enemies into a bloody execution that is sure to satisfy every brutal-hearted player.
Along with massive monsters and adversaries to be executed at will, Darksiders' world is filled with intriguing puzzles to be solved along the way. These puzzles are needed to proceed in the monster-filled dungeons in the game, and are, in themselves, satisfying to solve. But what completes one's satisfaction are the dungeon bosses found right after solving the puzzles. The journey through the world of Darksiders is not straight forward. You'll need certain equipments to proceed to the story and to access certain part of its massive world.
As you progress on the game, you will find that each dungeon gives you a new item that may prove useful in solving puzzles, defeating bosses afterward and opening new paths for you to take. Certain rewards (like a new piece of equipment, weapon, and ability) are given to players’ through-out the game. Every hour of game-play is sure to bring something new to the table, which gives players the excitement to see what will be unfolded next.
Overall, Darksiders delivers an outstanding visual and great character design that is brought to life by good sound tracks and vocal cast. Its lengthy single-player campaign, engaging combat system, and challenging puzzles are the elements that make Darksiders a fun and entertaining quality game.
