When having a look at trailers or videos you can think this game is another boring GOW clone, but the reality is much different!
This is not a hack & slash with no brain, Darksiders uses the best virtues of several games and put it on together to make a winner.
In fact, when playing, it reminds me more of Zelda Twilight Princess than any other game.
Brilliant graphics, interesting story and ambience, action combats without crazy combos (not like Bayonetta), challenging puzzles,once you start it you want to carry on playing 'til the end.
So: GOW+Zelda= Good game? With Darksiders the answer is yes, despite the fact nothing is really too original here.
On the cons side, once you finish the story there's not much more, so re-playability is absent. The story is long enough to enjoy and don't complaint about.
It will not make history, but it is a very solid piece of software, I wish all games would be that honest.
