Take God of War, Devil May Cry, and the Book of Revelation, give them a sack of KY Jelly, some scented candles, and a king-sized bed, and, evidently, the outcome of this massive sexual banquet will turn out to be Darksiders – a game that will, without a doubt, provide you with more entertainment than a sock puppet. We’ve tried the game, we loved it, we’re going to review it, oh, yes we are.
It is the first game developed by Vigil Games (co-founded by my favorite comic artist, Joe Madureira) which focuses on the story of one of the four legendary Horsemen of the apocalypse, War. Unfortunately, for the unaware folks that sat in their local Starbucks looking cool on their laptops while sipping mocha, the apocalypse arrived a tad too early and destroyed the world as they knew it. War finds himself tasked to find out who was behind this menacing act, and journeys into a world of total chaos permeated with battles between angels and demons. Losing most of his powers, War must find his other Horsemen brethren and figure out who misled them into starting the final battle, and beat them like Kunta Kente got his ass handed to him in Roots.
PLAY Magazine has already reviewed Darksiders and has awarded it a perfect 10 out of 10, and saying “…one of the most visually refined immersive and altogether robust video game experiences available on any system.”
There was no doubt in our minds that the game was going to be nothing short of amazing. We expected it after getting our hands dirty at Wizard World Comic Con this past October. Personally, my crotch was soaked in spooge after I finished with the demo. That’s just me, though.
Aside from treating you skeptics with the first ever perfect review score of the game, we also have included a new trailer titled Darksiders Hellbook Trailer 3, which depicts the beautiful aftermath of the apocalypse by teasing us with sexy visuals and a story that seems to intrigue. Check out some of the cast that you will be bumping into in the game, and listen to War’s raspy voice as he enlightens you a bit with what is and will happen.
