Darksiders 3 is a game I have been looking forward to the most THIS YEAR. I have raved and ranted in the past about how much I love this series. So much so that I have TWO other post about Darksiders 1 and 2.

Darksiders 1

Darksider 2

So clearly I have some heart into this series. I love this series so much that in the past year I saved up enough money to buy the RIDICULOUSLY Large version of this game which if you ask me IS WORTH the money for a fan like me. Just one of the most insane purchases I have made in my life! HOWEVER… this isn’t about that.. this is about the actual game..which….here we go…

Darksiders 3 stars FURY.. This is the Third Horseman of the Apocalypse to be introduced into the series. I think it goes without saying that this is the only Horseman who is a LADY and naturally the game mechanics are very different from war and death before.

Furys focus of game play involves gathering 4 different secondary weapons with 1 primary weapon and a very large legion of upgrades and enhancements. Unlike Darksiders 2 you will NOT be required to upgrade armor or pick up Items from bad guys to progress. This game settles more so into the method of Leveling your character by collecting souls from dead enemies and choosing between 3 categories Health, Strength and Arcane to upgrade.

Vulgrim plays the part of Merchant “again” and is the vendor for how you upgrade, fast travel and purchase useful items “similar to Darksiders 1”. Sad to say it but this is also the shortest of the 3 games however it does expand in a very fun way the story and character.

While remaining open world and unlike many adventure games it allows you different paths to take to get to each of the 7 bosses and mini bosses you may or may not fight. With no definitive path you can play the game in a free roaming way. Some areas do require abilities you need to find a path but once you do the doors are open to explore and it’s a fun world to do so.

The biggest flaw that I have with the game is the ACTUAL game itself. Suffering from serious Frame Rate issues which are unavoidable, some sound glitches, and at time SLOW to STILL animations. This game is great BUT REALLY REALLY NEEDS TO BE PATCHED BADLY!.. I would say buy it now but I think waiting could only help as IT IS being patched and the bugs in the game are being worked OUT.

So only time will tell if those problems will be fixed. If you want a great story and a continued myths for the story BUY IT NOW! If you are looking for a DECENT..action adventure game.. I will say wait for a little till it’s patched.. it’s design needs work 😦

I LOVE THE GAME..GLAD I HAVE IT.. REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO DARKSIDERS 4.. But.. yea.. hoping for some patches!
