Another cheerfully apocalyptic outing for the Horsemen.
A great one-shot adventure or an enjoyable grindfest, depending on which you want.
Though it lacks polish, Darksiders Genesis is a rare spinoff that equals and sometimes surpasses its mainline brethren
Darksiders Genesis find new fun in a new gameplay format. While retaining some of the aesthetic and mechanical qualities that drew fans in to begin with
Playing with a friend is more fun than solo, but odd design brings down both experiences
Darksiders: Genesis suffers from a poorly-suited camera but has great combat and intriguing writing.
An updated view of the action makes Darksiders Genesis look fresh, but after looking under that new paint job I found a game that feels tired, despite a few bright spots.
Darksiders Genesis masterfully shrinks down the long-running franchise into a top-down action game that’s just plain fun to play.
I came into Darksiders Genesis expecting nothing and got a fun little co-op dungeon crawler in return. Although the concept of a "Diablo spinoff for the Darksiders series" had the potential to just be a big bowl of wrong, the mad men and women at Airship Syndicate pulled it off. Long live Darksiders.
Darksiders Genesis takes the franchise's pillars (fast-paced combat, some puzzles and platforming) to an isometric perspective. A game that, although feels completely like a smaller spin-off rather than a big new entry in the series, manages to still give that Darksiders' feeling that fans love.
