    Darksiders III is a stunning achievement, bringing the once-dead series back to life with aplomb.

    Darksiders 3 makes great progress in terms of combat and story. If you are into action games, it might be the best appetizer before Devil May Cry 5 and Sekiro.

    A mostly uninspired action-adventure, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Combat and exploration deliver good, old-school fun and the levels are brimming with secrets. However, the story turns out rather shallow and most of the collectables and upgrades are not nearly as motivating as in the first Darksiders game. But if you are a fan of the series and keep your expectations in check, by all means, go for it.
  4. Darksiders 3 is more difficult than the previous games. A terrible checkpoint system and long loading times make the game troublesome. But its soundtrack, combat system and bosses are great.

    Darksiders 3 is a stable title but on that is far from sublime, full of good intentions but partly ravaged by a vision that is not completely in focus.

    There’s precious little to elevate Darksiders 3 to the level of the previous two games, let alone its peers in 2018. It’s a game that offers few surprises, few challenges, and few moments of greatness. What it does, it does to a satisfactory level and never kicks on from there. But there’s something about Darksiders 3 that still sort of works though. It’s a B-tier production, without a shadow of a doubt, but it’s the sort of thing that doesn’t actually come along all that often these days. Fans of the series will no doubt get a kick out of the continuing story and there’s just enough here to help Darksiders 3 stand out and make for an entertaining playthrough.

    Another evidence that not everyone is capable of parasitizing on Dark Souls. Boring, poor and uninteresting game that is rescued from the very bottom only by quite successful environmental puzzles and one good bossfight. [Issue#292]

    Copying my Review from steam:
    This game is great in almost every single way.

    -The art is amazing
    -The soundtrack is memorable but not intrusive during game play
    -The Combat feels very nice (Default combat was too difficult for my liking, so i switched to Classic about 1/3rd of the way through)
    -The Story while not the best ever, is enough to keep you wanting to know whats coming next
    -The puzzles are fairly simple, only a few i had to stop and think about

    The only negative i found was a glitch that skipped a mini-boss and a cut-scene, however i was able to backtrack and kill the boss triggering the cut-scene anyways.
    Overall i would strongly suggest this game.

    Awesome game! . Good story, good game-play, Loved the vfx. Keep up the good work!
    Graphics was good but can improve further, The Npc humans' face specially.
    The only thing that irritated me sometimes is that once i died at some place far away from save-point I had to go through the entire thing again,fighting the waves of monster, just because I couldn't time a single move properly and died.

    Good enough game, I played in difficult mode, i found it challenging and fun. I enjoyed it. It is low budget and needs a lot of improvements,Good enough game, I played in difficult mode, i found it challenging and fun. I enjoyed it. It is low budget and needs a lot of improvements, but it is playable and if you are a fan, worth.

    -Music is great in some moments.
    -I liked character and stage design. Not an open world (yes, that is a pro for me in this case). There is no map, made me enjoy exploration and memorisation. There are two or three puzzles that will make you think you are dumb. But when you manage solve it, oh man, that is satisfactory.
    -No combos (bad). That could be better, but the other two games were almost the same in this aspect.
    -Mechanics are simple. But I liked not finding useless garbage in each corner. There are a few items and all are usefull.
    -Story was just okay, has a couple of surprises.

    I am waiting with interest for the next chapter. With a little more funds, It only could go better.

    Voice acting is monotonous. The game has polish, but the game mechanics are simple and uninspiring. The story is average and predictable. Meh.

    most worse and annoying game i played so far. dont waste your money and time for this game.
    - The graphic is very bad, character motion like statue.
    - WTF story and conversation
    - Almost no bgm
    - Monotonous and annoying puzzle, its like the developer dont know how to make puzzle and never tried it (i just want to punch the developer face for making this game)
    - Very bad game mechanics, all indie game i played so far better than this
    Overall: this is trash (darksiders 2 better than this)
