With Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, THQ Nordic has ushered in the return of one of the last generation's best action-adventure games. Furthermore, instead of simply giving us a barebones port or a half-assed upgrade, the publisher and its team of talented developers have done the biblical epic justice with a thorough and impressive remaster.
It didn’t take long for the muscle memory to return, however, nor did I have trouble finding a lot of the secret areas I’d so often frequented during the mid-nineties.
It goes without saying that Dear Esther: Landmark Edition won't be for everyone. However, those who are willing to open their minds and try something different are in for a treat, because Curve Digital has brought a haunting, beautiful and memorable experiences to consoles with this port.
It's obvious from the get go that Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas feels no shame about borrowing heavily from classics like The Wind Waker and A Link to the Past. However, despite being very clone-like in nature and lacking in originality, this game still manages to be quite good. Sure, it doesn't live up to Link's name, but it's polished, interesting and enjoyable enough to be worth a gander.
