Okay, I’ll admit that Darksiders might not be 100% RPG goodness but there are elements of the genre in there – besides, the mythology and setting of Darksiders appeals to many native geeks.
In Darksiders we delt with the Apocalypse, started by War prematurely – or so we thought. There’s a twist there. In Darksiders 2: Wrath of War we’ve a second Horseman, come to rescue the honour of the first; and we jump straight to Death.
THQ’s game is due out in 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3
