Forums - Gaming Discussion - IGN: Darksiders Review (oups)

Rating Description
out of 10
8.0 Presentation
The story and character development could be improved. A convenient interface, a nicely implemented camera, and high production values throughout.
8.5 Graphics
Screen tearing and slowdown can be annoying, but otherwise this is a fantastic looking game, with a consistent style, great use of color, and top notch animations.
8.0 Sound
Voice acting is professional, though much of it isn't memorable. Solid sound design throughout, from weapon and battle effects to the overworld music.
7.5 Gameplay
Neither the puzzle nor combat systems are especially deep, but the fluidity and accessibility keeps them entertaining, along with the gear items and upgrades that add variety.
7.5 Lasting Appeal
This is not a short game at around 15 hours, though the superficial appeal of each section means backtracking isn't as interesting as it could have been.

Lower than expected.

That's a bit weird, cause the IGN UK and IGN AU reviews both gave a way better score.

Darn it... I was hoping it would be better on the lasting appeal and gameplay front. I'll check it out when it's cheaper.

amazing score!

agreed,too many games to buy before this.

I didn't expect that much from this game actually... I expected quite an average review, but those other IGN reviews are very surprising

I might have time for it in the summer, but I have loads of games that I am still playing from Christmas, and Mass Effect 2 in a few long weeks...

Wow surprisingly a solid game. Didn't see that coming.

It's just that simple.

Already have, this game is very good.

But war... war never changes

i can see this having a good meta... so i will also buy it when it hit the bargain bin!
