But, is this game worth buying?

Darksiders Genesis Review

Darksiders has always had multiple sources of inspiration and influence that it has borrowed from.

The first game borrowed heavily from Nintendo’s Zelda series, while the second featured a wall-running mechanic that shared a likeness to the 2008 reboot of the Prince of Persia.

AUTHENTIC: Genesis allegedly feels like a more authentic Darksiders experience than any of the previous entries

Genesis, however, seems to draw influence from the Darksiders series.

What this means is that Genesis immediately and consistently feels like Darksiders; there are returning characters, weapons and abilities from the core games that have been thoughtfully integrated.

The addition of Strife as a playable character is the cherry on the cake, as long-term fans of the series have flocked towards the fourth horseman that they never got to play with.

The fun (but slightly repetitive) hack-and-slash game is unique and enjoyable to play through, despite the idea behind it being rather similar to that of previous editions.

It was given a 3.5/5 rating from Gamesradar and a 9/10 on Steam.
