You take on the mantle of War (of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse fame) as angels and demons clash and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. While Darksiders won’t win any awards for originality, it’s an undeniably slick production. War is a powerful avatar with a near bewildering array of special weapons, upgrades and magic. The fluid and fast-paced action mixes with an unusually high level of exploration and puzzling for a game of this genre.
