Summary: Battling your way through dungeons requires both strength and brains in this terrific prequel to the Darksiders trilogy. Many critics feel that this is a must-play for fans of this franchise.
It's not just hack-n-slash.
The isometric world is visually charming and worth seeing.
Lack of Gameplay Depth
The wordy "grind" comes up in several reviews.
Top Critic Average
Thanks to its well executed balance between a hack and slash and an RPG, as well as its system of skills, the relationship between the two main characters and its very compelling combat, there's more than enough here to satisfy those who gravitate to these kinds of games. While not all is perfect when it comes to its less than ideal performance on the Switch screen, Darksiders Genesis has proved itself worthy for everyone to try it out.

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
A fun, cathartic romp through demonic armies, with two fun characters that offer plenty of personality and an interesting alternative to other Diablo style role-players.
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.
