Default Darksiders

I have to say pretty impressive God of War clone. The game is pretty, the levels are well thought out, and the action is satisfying. IMO, a much better alternative to the crappy Dante's Inferno demo that I played last week.

It's not a God of War Clone, It's more in the vein of Zelda then any of the God Wars or Devil May Crys.

Nice quicklook by Giantbomb

Thanks for the link.

Kind of funny they call it a quick look, when the video is 35 minutes.

After playing it a little while it is a good game. Though it feels slower paced after playing Bayonetta. The only real problem I have with it is in the section I stopped on at the moment. It is a flight like section so kind of airplane like steering, it's going to take me forever to get past it cause even though I selected inverted Y axis it isn't for this section. That just drives me crazy and makes it so much harder cause it's all backwards. It reminds me of a the section in Prince of Persia, flying along it's really an easy section but took me forever cause I kept getting up and down backwards.
