Review: Darksiders III

November 26, 2018 1 min read

Darksiders has always felt like it belonged on the fringe. The whole "edgy Zelda" mask it wears so fondly was a major turnoff for some, but I bought right into it. Maybe it was Mark Hamill's devilish turn as The Watcher that really drew me into this world, but it was artist Joe Madureira's hellish beauty that kept me coming back.

Sure there's padding issues and other nitpicks, but the strong locales and the more than serviceable action help cement this series as an actual action contender. After six years in limbo it's returning to answer the call of fans: but the real question is whether or not it will hold up under scrutiny in 2018.
