Darksiders in 100 Words or Less

By Kirk Hamilton

Like a tribute to every great game you ever played, but sorely lacking the magic of any of them. A groovy art style undone by lack of focus; fun combat undone by overlapping input-combinations and a rubbish dodge mechanic; interesting story undone by a very boring protagonist. The game also somewhat perplexingly never explains what a "Darksider" is.

The PS3 version has next to no screen-tearing, which is nice. Cliché time: If you like Zelda games... then go play a Zelda game. Not bad, really, but unless you're unemployed or really worship Joe Mad, you can safely skip it.
