Darksiders Review

One of the most cherished game tapes of my generation’s collective childhood.  One of the most cherished games of all time.  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Darksiders is kind of like that game…  A hacky-slashy, open worldy romp and overall good ol’ time.  You’ve got fire worlds, water worlds, lush planty green worlds.  A big sword.  Big chests to smash open.  The hookshot.  Epona’s gothic other half.  Bosses.  Mini bosses.  Z friggin’ targetting.  

In closing:  Darksiders is a blatant, utter ripoff of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and I couldn’t be more satisfied.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery — this is not generally applauded in video game land, but this game is an impressive exception.

B+
