    Once again, the Horsemen offer us a masterpiece. Darksiders III, even with all the fear and skepticism behind the game, has managed to become a superb hack ‘n’ slash. The personal journey of Fury against the Seven Deadly Sins is simply amazing, and everything is set towards the future for Strife to come and end this awesome epic.

    Overall, Darksiders 3 is a good game, and at times it’s very good. It’s just regrettable that it’s not better given the quality of the first two games and the long wait since DS2. Some of the issues can be patched, and may very well be in time; but at least for now, Darksiders 3 falls short of expectations.

    It has a slow start that won’t do much to sway anyone that’s not invested. If you’re willing to dig deep and stick with it, Darksiders III can be an extremely rewarding experience that has a lot to offer. It diverges from the first two games enough to feel interesting, but retains a distinct look and feel that fans of the series will instantly be familiar with.

    Darksiders III is a straightforward action game that isn't afraid to throw some serious old-school challenges at you.
  5. 60
    Darksiders III is a slight change of pace for the series which succeeds in certain areas whilst failing quite badly in others. The camera is terrible and there are plenty of bugs, but the combat is rewarding and exploring areas with new abilities will keep more forgiving players entertained.

    Darksiders hasn't changed much since 2012. It's still a fun mishmash of genres with a great protagonist and undemanding combat systems, but it's a pity that it feels outdated compared to its genre peers and stumbles when injecting Souls-like sensibilities.

    The game is a nightmare to play through, with an unlikable protagonist, a chugging frame rate, and a mountain of bugs. It’s completely and utterly broken, but even when it works (which is almost never), it amounts to nothing more than a below average hack-and-slash with some decent puzzles.

Presenta sulla versione pc qualche calo di frame ma sono problemi che si riscontrano quasi sempre con i titoli appena usciti e che verranno sicuramente risolti con il tempo.
    Consiglio da grande fan della saga di acquistare anche i giochi precedenti per capire al meglio la trama e per divertirvi ancora di piu.

    Buon divertimento a tutti

    Game itself is great but please, please, please, fix the performance on the PS4 devs. In the meantime, I'd advise everyone to buy the PC version.

    I love Darksiders. That is why my score is so high. Before D3 I played remastered versions, and I think they look better than D3. And that isI love Darksiders. That is why my score is so high.

    Instant Refund.

    I love your series mister Devs. I really do. But really? Literal Bug Collecting for advancement?
    That was... what? It's annoying, out of place, even as a "logical puzzle", it's.. not for a Darksiders game. It's the opposite of smart.

    The fighting system(!s). I can only attack, when I dodge. The rest of the attacks are useless. They don't make damage, the boss hits you, and you die. A normal attack makes 60dmg, the dodge makes 120 min.
    Some of the bosses make undodgeable damages. First boss right at the start spans waves at each other, and you can try to dodge them in mid air. A lot of the fighting is annoying and you can easily die when 3 enemies gangs you and stun-locks you.
    I stopped playing when I had 2 lag waves at Wrath. The second boss. I died twice, at nothing.

    I can't play this game.

    Easily the WORST game i've played in ten years. It is wrong on so many levels.

    It's supposed to be hard, but it is actually unplayable.
    Easily the WORST game i've played in ten years. It is wrong on so many levels.

    It's supposed to be hard, but it is actually unplayable. Freezes in a middle of a fight, camera that stays stuck in some random walls, dodge mechanics that works once in a while (and in apocalyptic difficulty, you dies in 2 hits, i let you imagine), graphics that are looking dated (Darksiders 2 remastered is looking better)... It is not even close of an Alpha build.

    Don't waste your time and money on this. You're welcome.
