    What do you guys think of Darksiders? Having just finished the demo I found it pretty fun, though like Dante's Inferno it's not very original. It's like God of War 3 with World of Warcraft style graphics. Having played both of these games now I have to say I'm gonna go with Darksiders, which one do you guys prefer?

    Played both and owned both.

    Dante's Inferno by far.

    Runs at a smooth 60 FPS and the art/scenery is AMAZING.

    So if I enjoyed the puzzles in zelda games, would it make me enjoy darksiders more? Or is it just a bunch of bullshit?

    There are more puzzles in Darksiders than there are enemies, or at least in the nearly two hour long demo there were.

    The thing is set up similar with the hub system in the overworld and the dungeons with the same "collect item that allows you to progress and defeat the boss" set up.

    If you want an adventure game go for darksiders. If you want a hack and slash go for Dante. Even though the combat is similar they are very diffeent games.

    I've been a Zelda nut since the first one and I would have to say darksiders was a lot more fun for me than twilight princess. :o

    Hmm not bad, I still haven't finished going through majora's mask, not sure that I ever will, it gets kind of old at the garudo fortress part.

    Wind waker is next on my backlog after I finish resident evil remake. I bought a cube solely to play the Zelda games I had missed.

    Darksiders if you want an adventure, Dante's Inferno if you want a toilet to flush your money down.

    If you enjoy Zelda games you will like Darksiders. It starts off alittle slow but once you get to the first "dungeon" It will carry on as a great game.

    I could never get into windwaker, I got it when I had my Wii and I quit after I got bored of driving around the fucking ocean for an hour
