    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]

    دوستان عزیزم خواهش می کنم گول نمرات Darksiders III را نخورید و خودتان را از تجربه آن محروم نکنید، هر چند که می دانم عاقل تر از این حرف هادوستان عزیزم خواهش می کنم گول نمرات Darksiders III را نخورید و خودتان را از تجربه آن محروم نکنید، هر چند که می دانم عاقل تر از این حرف ها هستید و دیروز در پست نمرات بازی دیدم که اکثر شما چقدر خوب و درست در مورد بازی و نمراتش نظرتان را گفته بودید و خوشبختانه انگار دارد کم کم گول خوردن بازیبازان کشورمان از امتیاز متای یک بازی کمتر می شود و خیلی هوشیارتر شده ایم مخصوصا با تعداد زیاد سایت های عجیب و غریب که به متا راه پیدا کرده اند و هر چه دلشان می خواهند می گویند و هر نمره ای که میخواهند می دهند و توضیحش را هم نمی دهند که چرا؟ همان طور که قبل تر نیز خدمت شما عرض کردم اگر بخواهم بهترین جمله را به طور خلاصه در مورد Darksiders III بگویم این است که ” Darksiders III بهترین و لذتبخش ترین ترکیب ممکن از بازی اول و دوم سری است که چندین ساعت با گیم پلی جذاب، مبارزات چالش برانگیز، سلاح ها و Hollow های بسیار جذاب فیوری و دنیای پیچیده و پر از رمز و رازش شما را سرگرم می کند.” پس زیاد منتظر نمانید و در کنار فیوری سوار Rampage شده و به مبارزه با ۷ گناه اصلی بروید، تازه از این نظر بازی ثواب هم دارد! فقط ببخشید که بازی بتل رویال ندارد وگرنه احتمالا جای این نمرات الان بازی سال می شد!

    A non-indie game that must be rated like an indie game. IMO (and because it's the only one I played until the end this year) Darksiders III isA non-indie game that must be rated like an indie game. IMO (and because it's the only one I played until the end this year) Darksiders III is far better than Celeste or Deadcells. Fury is a new unknown original main character and she needs more explanations than War or Death (everybody knows what is War and what is Death). We discover her layers fighting the Seven Sins as much as she discovers herself because every Sin is a way of self-knowledge. She grows up from a spoilt overambitious girl to a trusty woman and sister.

    Don't bother about the narrow dodge window because it's intended and you can improve it with weapon enhancements like you improved Death's Execute in Darksiders II. Don't bother about the low physical damage because Fury is better with Arcane Damage than all her brothers. Don't bother about the many deaths you will suffer because you can always level up and the game will feel shorter than you wish when you ended it.

    The only reason I don't rate a 10 is because the targeting issues, Gunfire Games needs to fix that enabling the target lock to the nearest enemy wherever it is, not only in front of Fury.

    I hope this helps a little to counter the bad reviews always taking Darksiders down because are games made for gamers, not for reviewers.

    + A good exploration of lore, plot isn't bad, main character and her changes during the game, good dark souls mechanics, clever leveldesigne,+ A good exploration of lore, plot isn't bad, main character and her changes during the game, good dark souls mechanics, clever leveldesigne, some cool bosses, awesome style not inferior to the previous DS games, pleasant end twist preparing for sequel.
    - A lot of really DISHONEST mechanics of enemies and some bosses (gluttony first phase for example). This is what that game designers really should fix if they want to make souls-like game. Max difficulty can disappoint with this mechanics. And some frustrating puzzles, as always.
    Love whole Darksiders franchise and like this game too.

    - WTF story and conversation

    - 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)
