Darksiders (2010)

After hearing a ruckus on Earth, Horseman of the Apocalypse War wades in and starts doing his thing only to find out that this isn’t the time for Armageddon at all and something has gone terribly wrong.

8/10

This Apocalyptic monster mash is a lot of fun with a refreshingly bright and unusual look (War looks like he’s balancing his own tiny head on everything he’s ever found and the giant hands and feet are surprisingly cool). The game design itself is also well done with lots of well-communicated puzzles, lots of weapons and toys, piles of agreeable demon-slicing and tons of confused weighty pomposity to go round.

This game contains extended extreme fantasy violence.

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.
