The straightforward simplicity of Darksiders III is a refreshing change of pace after exploring so many dense open-world games. That simplicity doesn’t refer to the combat or boss battles, though, which are complex and almost startlingly unforgiving. Its throwback philosophy is comfort food for action gamers of a certain age, but it would’ve been nice to see the third game in the series introduce some new concepts to relaunch Darksiders in the modern age.

Ultimately, while the setting, characters, and storytelling feel right at home, Darksiders III swings for the fences with its combat ambitions and only just barely manages to get on base. It gets points for trying something new, but the end result is a muddled set of ideas that clash with each other, with nothing in place to soften that collision.

Darksiders 3 is a much different game than its predecessors. The ideas here aren’t bad, so much as they are poorly executed. There’s still an interesting story and great presentation to experience, but you’ll likely have to overlook the technical issues even if the core gameplay suits you.

Darksiders 3 feels like the weakest entry in the series to date, which makes it hard to recommend to anyone other than those looking to continue and complete the story of the Four Horsemen. It’s a miracle that this game was even made and for that, fans of the original should definitely pick this up and hope it’s successful enough to see Strife’s story come to life next.

Combat is hard, often unfairly so, but get into the groove and it’s also very satisfying. Exploring the environments can yield extra challenges, with powerful rewards for success, but a few more tantalizing glimpses of areas beyond your abilities wouldn’t have gone amiss. If you enjoyed the previous entries and have been waiting to see what Fury can do, you’ll find the wait has mostly been worth it. Just be prepared for a challenge.

Darksiders III is a frustrating, awkward sequel to a series that’s charmingly stupid, but there’s a lot of fun to be had if you give up on getting good. Do yourself a favor and tone down the difficulty level so that you can enjoy the crazy character designs and ridiculous fantasy world that Gunfire Games has built. Fans will be glad that this underdog of a series at least got a third chapter, but if you’re new to Darksiders, you might want to start at the beginning.

I love its character and enemy designs; its world draws you in and surprises you with the way all of its environments are linked together; and it really does have some epic boss fights. Throw in some light puzzling and an engaging story, and you have a no-frills adventure game that somehow feels fresh. Games like this, that sit comfortably between indie hits and AAA giants, just aren’t that commonplace anymore, and that saddens me. Can we have some more, please?

Darksiders III is a game that fans like myself will enjoy. While not as polished as the first two entries it continues the story of the Horsemen respectfully. I want to see how this saga ends so badly, and I hope THQ Nordic gives Gunfire Games more time and more money to craft the next entry. The rough edges are going to drag some people down, but I promise the conclusion is worth the ride.

Darksiders III’s shift to a more Dark-Soulsy experience seems to fit perfectly within the Darksiders universe. The third outing in the franchise is a solid effort by Gunfire Games – one of my favourite gaming experiences of the year, in fact – let down only by some shaky traversal mechanics, a dodgy compass and some downright unpleasant frame-rate issues.
Lisa DahlgrenNov 26, 2018
All of this aside though, Darksiders III is a lovely game with plenty to do, a well varied and well-designed world, and an equally varied enemy roster. There are some issues here, the frame rate and game crashes being the biggest among them, but as a Darksiders fan we're not disappointed with the latest instalment. DLC is planned for later on and we're already looking forward to more.

Darksiders III es un juego de luces y sombras que cuenta con tantos aciertos como fallos, lo que le impide llegar más lejos y estar a la altura de sus predecesores. A pesar de ello, su peculiar mezcla de acción, puzles y plataformas sigue funcionando muy bien, resultando en una aventura sorprendentemente entretenida que consigue sobreponerse a sus defectos para hacernos pasar un buen rato sin mayores pretensiones.
Laura LunaNov 26, 2018
Algunos de los jefes finales presentan un diseño pobre, mientras que el de otros es memorable y sorprendente. En cuanto a las mazmorras, varias de ellas se hacen repetitivas mientras que otras aportan frescura a la ambientación. Con sus carencias, no deja de ser un título entretenido, en el que el sabor de sus puntos álgidos compensa otros aspectos mejorables.
Pierre-Alexandre RouillonNov 26, 2018
Ca faisait quelques années qu’on n'avait plus trop de nouvelles de la série Darksiders. THQ (puis THQ Nordic) avait pourtant fait un bel effort pour poursuivre le devoir de mémoire avec des éditions remasterisées des deux premiers épisodes. Mais il aura fallu attendre mai 2017 pour apprendre l’existence d’un troisième volet confié à Gunfire Games, studio monté par des anciens de Vigil Games (Darksiders 1 et 2) et Crytek USA.

Bref, malgré ses 4 ou 5 ans de retard, on ne boude pas complètement son plaisir de retrouver enfin les aventures de nos quatre cavaliers, en attendant une suite qu'on espère bien plus aboutie et plus moderne avec les aventures de Discorde... pour un TPS avec ses flingues ?
Benoît BarnyNov 26, 2018
Et c’est sans compter sur les problèmes techniques qui viennent sérieusement ternir l’arrivée de la série sur la génération actuelle de machines. Tout cela est d’autant plus regrettable que les deux sympathiques premiers volets laissaient croire à un futur radieux pour cette saga. Mais, pour le coup, seuls les fans les plus mordus, et les plus tolérants, de la licence Darksiders pourraient éventuellement trouver satisfaction dans cette suite.
MrderivNov 26, 2018
Nous évoluons donc au sein d’une aventure équilibrée, rythmée, à la construction intelligente aux influences puisées par ici dans un Metroïd et là dans un Dark Souls. En attendant que résonnent les tirs de revolvers du dernier cavalier Strife, la saga Darksiders fouette d’un revers cinglant ceux qui pensait qu’elle avait dit son dernier mot.

Darksiders 3 non inventa nulla di nuovo e non innova alcunché, ma riesce a fare tesoro dagli errori dal passato e prende il meglio dai capisaldi del genere, creando una formula di gioco accattivante e con pochi punti deboli. La solida struttura di gioco e il buon ritmo riusciranno a catturarvi fino alla fine: siamo di fronte a uno dei migliori capitoli della serie.
Andrea GiulianiDec 01, 2018
Peccato solo per un comparto tecnico che sembra uscito dalla scorsa generazione e soprattutto dei problemi di caricamenti e freeze continui che rendono l’esperienza al limite dell’ingiocabile. Se THQ Nordic riuscirà a risolvere in breve tempo questi problemi, il gioco potrebbe tranquillamente meritare anche un voto in più, ma allo stato attuale Darksiders III è un titolo comunque divertente ma che soffre terribilmente per il suo sviluppo travagliato.
DottorKillexDec 19, 2018
Ci sarebbe piaciuto premiare la versione console di Darksiders III con lo stesso, altisonante voto che aveva saputo meritarsi quella PC solo qualche giorno fa, ma una serie di incertezze tecniche, nessuna delle quali impediente ma tutte decisamente fastidiose, ci impedisce di farlo.

Darksiders 3 — достойный постапокалиптический экшен, который здорово развивает мифологию серии и аккуратно избавляет ее от спорных моментов (боевку в оригинале, например, многие ругали — тут она в разы лучше). Да, игра получилось небольшой, но очень насыщенной — скучать в ней будут разве что те, кому эксплоринг вообще не нравится, но не до конца понятно, что такие люди вообще здесь забыли.

Silahlara eklenen bir ise yükseltme (enhancement) sistemi. Bu sistem ile, oyun dünyasından bulabildiğiniz (veya Vulgrim’den satın alabildiğiniz) kutsal bazı objeleri silahlarımıza ekliyoruz. Bu objeler, Angelic Artifact ve Demonic Artifact adlı iki farklı eşya ile güçlendirilebiliyor. Şunu unutmayın, bu objeler silahlara eklendikten sonra silahlar için aktif, Fury için ise pasif bir yeteneği aktifleştiriyor. İkisinden birini seçmeniz gerekiyor. İkisini birden açmak istiyorsanız, bu da mümkün ama biraz tuzlu.

Jak zatem ostatecznie wypada Darksider III z perspektywy fana dwóch pierwszych odsłon? Jest po prostu OK. Mam wrażenie, że duch i wizja Vigil Games zostały zatracony po drodze, ale mogło być naprawdę gorzej. To kawał dobrego slashera, który zapewni nam godziny dobrej rozrywki.
