4.0 out of 5 stars Darksiders (PC), April 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Darksiders [Download] (Software Download)
After hearing several youtubers recommend this game, I was delighted when I found it on sale for five dollars on Amazon. I have played it for several hours now and here's my impression.

Gameplay:
I highly suggest using a gamepad for this as it is a port. The keyboard and mouse controls are mediocre but it was designed for the console, and so it is best played with a console controller. When I first started playing, I was worried because all I seemed to be able to do was mash the X button. Luckily, the game progresses and combos become available for you to buy. From what I've seen, I'm sure there are plenty of awesome combos as you progress further. The controls feel nice as well, although I do wish there was a sprint option.

Graphics:
This game isn't the best-looking, but its art style is fairly interesting. I was actually a bit impressed by what they accomplished on such an old engine. I didn't come across any fps lag or the like, everything was smooth as butter.

Steam:
Steam is required to play this game, and as I understand, some people are boycotting this game for that reason. Personally I'm not sure why nor do I really care.

Conclusion:
This game is definitely very fun so far, and I can't wait to play more. I gave it 4 stars only due to minor flaws but nothing else. Definitely a must-buy, especially when it's only 5 dollars right now.

Steam can function in offline mode. All but one of the games I own on it is capable of running w/out connection to the Internet. Once in a while, you have to reconnect if it has a hiccup or some sort of security built in, but it's not very often. I generally don't connect Steam online unless I'm buying another game.

Funny, my copy runs just fine in offline mode. Perhaps you should do a little research before you spread misinformation.
