what have you ever played Zelda mate???

Darksiders clearly resembles a large scale adventure game, like the Legend of Zelda.

- You progress through by exploring the overworld
- going into massive dungeons
- which all require solving puzzles
- There's locked doors that require keys, switches to hit to open doors,
- statues and boxes that require dragging and pulling
- you can spend 30 mins on a single puzzle and not seeing anything to fight
- finding new items / skill in each new dugoen to complete it and defeat the boss
- each boss give you a new 'heart' bit
- you find bits of heart bits dotted around the world and dungeons
- x4 of the heart bits and you get a new one
- bomb plants laying around to blast through certain walls (some you use the bomerang thing to blow up)
- roam the out world on a horse (yes i know TP only)
- instead of a bomerang i have the 'spinning disc' thing

this is clearly an action / adventrure ala Zelda type stuff .. any one buying this for a God of War / Gaiden beat um up clone will be sadley disapointed. it shares more similarities with a zelda type adventure than it does with a hack un slash

from the 1up preview
What's our take? War's savage finishing moves have me giddy for a dark, gory take on Zelda's adventuring.
from the ign review
It draws heavily from mechanics established in the 3D Legend of Zelda games
seriously mate .. i'd go play a 3d zelda game again. Yes it has hack un slash combat .. but the game its self is clear a zelda type clone. Not that its a bad thing as its a sweet genre, and one i enjoy. So i'm enjoying this a lot right now
Currently playing : Mass Effect 3
