We just put up our review of Darksiders and as you'll see, it's a fun game with its fair share of flaws. However, for those of you who enjoy smashing on inferior beings with a nigh-on invincible character in a singular atmosphere, this one is for you. Here's an example of the action you'll be missing out on if you pass up Vigil's solid effort. The combat is bloody, intense and quite accessible; the latter trait really can't be applied to the competition, Sega's Bayonetta. No, Darksiders is more for the fan who just wants to beat on things with little in the way of severe repercussions.
