Darksiders 3 is a prequel to Darksiders 2 in which you control a new female character named, Fury.
Without going too much into the spoiler territory, Fury is tasked with taking out the seven Horseman in order to try and save War whom has been captured.
Having only played Darksiders 2 in which we rather enjoyed we where eagerly looking forward to playing this one, unfortunately though it did not quite meet our satisfactory needs or wants, here is why..
Though, for the most part, we seemed to enjoy what was available within Darksiders III. The game was not without its problems.
One of our main gripes with the game was its tiresome camera angles. Which never seemed to work in our favour. A lot of these issues seemed to occur during combat. Despite having the auto-target option toggled.
I managed to find some of the games aspects rather challenging. A lot of the bosses seemed rather difficult. Great for those who enjoy a good challenge. Though perhaps not for everyone.
The game does feature the ability to select a difficulty mode that best suits your overall playstyle. Also, each of the main story bosses comes with its own combat strategy. Thus, one figured out, can push past and break down the overall difficulty of the game.
It was nice to see the return of a few of the original voice cast. Reprising their former roles within the game.
The soundtrack was also a nice treat. Managing to mix rather nicely with their chosen environments.
The many different puzzles within the game managed to make things very challenging. Often needing to really think out and strategize our next move.
A combat heavy title with aspects of both the Devil May Cry and Dark Souls series. It is still rather enjoyable. With a ton of replay value
+ Familiar voice actors from the previous games return to replay their roles.
+ There are plenty of collectibles and replayability to be had
+ The combat mechanic is rather addictive and fun
+ Camera angles are a bit awkward.
+ The combat is rather difficult, though for some this may end up being a good thing rather than a bad.
+ Frame rate issues also plague the overall enjoyment
