    Sure, it’s not as polished as the likes of God of War, but I don’t care. When Darksiders III works well, it’s just as entertaining. I love its character and enemy designs; its world draws you in and surprises you with the way all of its environments are linked together; and it really does have some epic boss fights. Throw in some light puzzling and an engaging story, and you have a no-frills adventure game that somehow feels fresh.

    It excels in many ways from fast and challenging combat to well-designed boss fights and good level design. The only problem is that it feels like the "lite" version of all of its inspirations, offering a taste of a masterpiece instead of a new take on those archetypes. You'll get Dark Souls without the measured combat, Bayonetta without the intricate weaving of combos, Castlevania with far fewer utility abilities to learn, and Zelda with puzzles that are far too easy for most. Still, what's taken from each of those games is mostly good, which makes Darksiders III a successful comeback story.

    Darksiders, when it was released, became the definitive example of a sleeper hit, and like the Phoenix that arises from the ashes, Darksiders III has been resurrected in a fashion that lays the ground work for a tremendous conclusion to the series should we get Darksiders IV and the final chapter of the horsemen and the apocalypse. If you're a fan of hack and slash adventure games with an incredible story, then this should be on your list of must have games to purchase.

    Darksiders III is a bittersweet episode in the series of the Horsemen that proposes a new and more demanding approach in combat, but remains halfway to a notable game for the lack of rhythm and the loss of elements such as exploration and puzzles. It is a bit far from the game that the Darksiders franchise needs to continue to be alive in the near future.

    Combat is hard, often unfairly so, but get into the groove and it’s also very satisfying. Exploring the environments can yield extra challenges, with powerful rewards for success, but a few more tantalizing glimpses of areas beyond your abilities wouldn’t have gone amiss. If you enjoyed the previous entries and have been waiting to see what Fury can do, you’ll find the wait has mostly been worth it. Just be prepared for a challenge.

    Darksiders III is a frustrating, awkward sequel to a series that’s charmingly stupid, but there’s a lot of fun to be had if you give up on getting good. Do yourself a favor and tone down the difficulty level so that you can enjoy the crazy character designs and ridiculous fantasy world that Gunfire Games has built. Fans will be glad that this underdog of a series at least got a third chapter, but if you’re new to Darksiders, you might want to start at the beginning.

    Darksiders III strays too far away from the formula that made the first two entries great while also being mired by bugs and performance issues.

    Un gran regreso de un franquicia casi olvidada, posiblemente no posea los mejores graficos pero goza de una gran historia

Despite a few bugs here and there (which is expected). Darksiders III offers an extremely unique and clever level design where the worlds seems to loop in on itself. The combat is more satisfying due to the increased difficulty. The world is beautifully unique. the protagonists needs some time to get used to but you will find out that she is very different from War and Death that provides a fresh look at the franchise. If you played the previous games and enjoyed them, you will surely enjoy this one too, Expand

Absence větší rekapitulace nechává mnoho dějových mezer, které zapomětlivější jedinci jen těžko vyplní a odklon od popcornové hratelnosti otevřel dveře stresujícím soubojům s častými respawny. A vadí to? Třetí díl Darksiders přichází s pozměněným konceptem, který skvěle odpovídá obměně ústřední postavy a zároveň do puntíku zapadá do vytvořeného univerza. Aby si Fury získala vaše sympatie, stačí jí široká paleta bojových schopností, dobře napsané dialogy a originální bossové. Příjemný návrat jezdců apokalypsy drobně kalí jen nevyužití některých prvků, grafika s proměnlivou kvalitou a skutečně tuhý kořínek některých soků. Nicméně to může být pro mnohé největší klad. Expand

    I have always enjoyed this series, each game changing up its style slightly. 1 was clearly inspired by Zelda, 2 by more loot orientated RPGSI have always enjoyed this series, each game changing up its style slightly. 1 was clearly inspired by Zelda, 2 by more loot orientated RPGS like Diablo, and now 3 seems inspired by Demon or Dark Souls. Gone are the predefined dungeon areas, now the whole world is more intertwined and the way you need to unlock new skills to open new passages and walkways.
    I am playing on an Xbox One X. So far the game has crashed on me twice, both times when attempting to reload after a defeat from a boss.
    Overall I am loving the combat, exploration and simplified inventory and levelling up system, but annoyed with the frame rate and occasional crash.
    Is it unplayable as some people are saying, of cause not. However I feel the lack of another few months polish has taken a great game to a good game.
    For people playing this standalone it's maybe only a 6 at the moment. But for people who are fans of the series, love the world, the characters and the lore than we will probably want to overlook its shortcomings and could consider it an 8. I'll split the difference and call it a 7 for now.
    If they improve the bugs though this could easily go higher.

    Darksiders always grabbed my attention when it came to the world the story took place in, the characters (protag/antag), and the story itself.Darksiders always grabbed my attention when it came to the world the story took place in, the characters (protag/antag), and the story itself. Darksiders 3 takes place after Darksiders 1 but before Darksiders 2. In D3, Fury must eliminate the Seven Deadly Sins to restore balance to the world.

    Firstly, Darksiders 3 does not feel next gen whatsoever. The combat can be clunky at times, dodges feel nonresponsive or finicky, frame rates can drop in the worst of times resulting in a potential death followed by lost progress. Opposed to previous titles, Darksiders 3 feels more like a souls game than a typical hack n' slash. Now, instead of mindlessly spamming attack to kill things you have to time dodges/attacks to overcome your enemies. I give Darksiders 3 points for that for taking a new direction in combat and keeping it rather fresh. My BIGGEST gripe with Darksiders 3 however is the jumping. This is where it feels past gen. Instead of double jumping over things you absolutely know you can make it up to, Darksiders 3 says, "No, **** you. You have to fall back down until you automatically grab the ledge and do a dumb jump animation to clear that ledge." Every. Single. Time.

    On to the pros now. Like I said before, the setting and characters always captivated me when it came to Darksiders. In Darksiders 3, I give massive respect to the design team. Boss fights feel like boss fights and some of them will make you pissed off. Fury feeeeeeeeeels like a badass being able to turn into a massive infuriated version of herself for extra damage. And her whips ooooooooooooooooooooooo her whips just feel so satisfying to swing around. There were some times where frames dropped or the game didnt look as pretty but that didn't bother me as much because.. Fury was always center stage and I always got a look at her flaming mane blowing in the wind as I essentially had a watery mouth over how dope her armor looks. All in all, I'd give Darksiders 3 a 7/10. It tries to bring a breath of fresh air to the franchise and while it is a fun game it feels like a nostalgia grab based on the fact that it does not feel next gen at all. If you can get past the past-gen feeling then there's an amazing game waiting here for you.
