A year ago I tried to get into Darksiders, but only made it a few hours. A lot of things about the game rubbed me the wrong way. Namely the forced patch, broken graphics, and brain-dead combat. I decided to give it another chance, because I really want to be excited for the Wii U sequel. I just beat the game on Normal and there’s a lot more to it than I initially thought, but it’s still a crappy game.
I installed Darksiders onto my Xbox 360 the other day, keen to give it a shot after hearing the comparisons to Zelda, and keen to experience the first game made by promising dev Vigil Games, who have been vocal about their support for Wii U with Darksiders 2. It’s time I finally gave Darksiders a shot.
