Darksiders reviews say “buy me now”

Tuesday, 5th January 2010 08:57 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Darksiders is out this week, in case you’d forgotten. Given the reviews that have been coming in all over the Holiday, you probably shouldn’t have done.

The 360 version’s got a current MC score of 86, with an 87 for the PS3 version.

Find the full round-up after the break.

If you’ve got a link to add, slot them in below.

If you need to know more on the game, check out us playing the first 20 minutes, followed by Steph’s interview with David Adams of developer Vigil Games.

It’s out today in the US, and Friday in the UK.

    Well, colour me surprised.
    This was on my radar for a long time, and with news of embargoes and other things I my hopes were starting to fade.
    Glad the reviews are strong, I pre-ordered my copy the other day.
    Shame THQ aren’t really advertising it though. It’s not going to get the sales it deserves.

    Preordered this the other day to replace the copy of Demon’s Souls I bought in a moment of madness and sold days after. Seems right up my auto strada. I love Zelda games and the over the top gothic style appeals. This game came in totally under my radar and I think I’m gonna love it.. hopefully… it’ll have a ‘pause’ function ;-)

    lol, someone is bitter about Demon’s Souls. Does your mom still hold your hand when you leave the house, Dannybouy?

    yeah, it’s 10 minutes long, hardly a reason to buy the game.

    buy it because it’s good.

    i’m not buying it, i’ve got both this and bayoneta on my rental list, its like a lottery, and either way i win

    in fact i hope i get this first, as i feel it may be a lesser experience to play through after bayonetta

    if i were to buy it, i’d wait a couple of months, this game will be going for half the price come march

    Darksiders : GOWIII :: hershey’s kiss : triple chocolate cake

    We’ll see about that.
    The GoW3 demo could have been a hell of a lot better.
    Bayonetta has GoW3′s number anyway.
