'Despite mild discontent though, in anyone's estimation Darksiders is well worth keeping an unholy hovering eye upon - above all if you're an Xbox 360 owner bereft of the Kratos own-brand of button-mash mythology. The action delivers no end of satisfaction, there's a palpable sense of advancement as you unlock new weapons and abilities, and discovering otherworldly caves, temples and demonic beasties beneath the ravaged modern city is undeniable fun. Best of all though, as the sudden proliferation of Darksiders coverage has surely demonstrated, it means everyone everywhere can come up with lines like 'War, huh? What is he good for?' Answer? Killing stuff. Same as ever.
Darksiders: Wrath of War is due out for PS3 and Xbox 360 within the next few months'
