    Darksiders III is a stunning achievement, bringing the once-dead series back to life with aplomb.

    Unexpectedly difficult and demanding, Darksiders III will test your patience and challenge your skills, but it will reward you if you spend the time it deserves.

    Other than some lackluster progression mechanics and maybe a little too much reliance on players knowledge of the world, Darksiders III offers a great new take on an existing franchise.

    More than a tribute to the first two games, Darksiders III creates its own identity. More demanding, but also more rewarding, it improves the formula in almost every compartments. Sadly, it lacks the epic breath of its predecessors.

    If you're able to put those narrative shortcomings aside, there's a fair bit to like about Darksiders III. When compared to some of the most critically and commercially acclaimed video games of all time, it seems to fall well short, but perhaps that bar was never in reach. Judged on its own merits, Darksiders III combines interesting combat, clever map design, and engaging progression, though you may have to look past a lot of bland environments and go in with expectations in check in order to fully appreciate it.

    Darksiders III is a very enjoyable game, with many good things, but also many ups and downs. It’s a step back compared to its predecessors, but fans of the franchise should give it an opportunity.

    Darksiders 3 is four years too late and four years behind current game design. As you (sufferingly) progress, things improve… but you really, really need to be dedicated to get to that point. I’d recommend Darksiders 3 to die-hard fans of the franchise — and I truly mean die-hard — and no one else. It’s too painful to play for a majority of the time. Still, better than Fallout 76, I guess.

    I've played both Darksiders 1 and 2, and enjoyed both of them.

    I really enjoyed Darksiders 3 as well, thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

    I just finished the game and i have to say it was really good. The controls were extremely smooth and Fury played exceptionally well. The GameI just finished the game and i have to say it was really good. The controls were extremely smooth and Fury played exceptionally well. The Game is more difficult than the first 2 but with the most recent patch they fixed some of the difficulty issues and made it easier to dodge. The fast travel system is way simpler and improved compared to the 1st and 2nd games. The linearity is just right so that if you are willing to explore you can be rewarded for doing so with new enhancements or items to upgrade your weapons and enhancements. I found the game to be the right length for its price and what it offers.

    Good Smooth combat, nice world which exploring is rewarding and all around great experience and the story was also pretty good. The RPG system is simple and easy to pick up and overall a great experience.

    The bad is that there is no new game plus which would be really nice, also I wish there was a world map where you could see your position in the world and the positions of the sins. The other thing is that i missed one of the sins and i think a world map would have solved the issue of finding the missing sin.(for me it was sloth)
    Id give it an 8 because its really solid not the best in the series but was really fun and offered a nice challenge but i think they should add a world map function if they continue to update it because it would fix a ton of the navigation issues when missing a sin. definitely worth being called a darksiders game.

    (side note)
    got to give huge credit to the developers for listening and making adjustment real quick especially with this last patch
