About

Darksiders III is the third installment in its series of dark fantasy action games. Plotwise, it is the series' spin-off rather than the sequel.

Plot

The game is set in the world after the literal Biblical Apocalypse that involved the Four Horsemen and a battle between angels and demons. The story of Darksiders III unfolds at the background of the events of two original games. Darksiders III follows Fury, a Horsewoman of the Apocalypse and the sister to the original protagonist, War the Horseman. She goes on a quest given to her by the Charred Council, an institution that is meant to keep the balance between Heaven, Hell, and Earth. Fury's mission is to find and annihilate the infamous Seven Deadly Sins. The mighty Lord of the Hollows agrees to help her, although he's obviously pursuing his own goals. He gives Fury the power of the flame.

Gameplay

The player controls Fury from the third person view in an open world. She can use a variety of weapons, including a whip, a sword, and a dagger, as well as her magical abilities. She can also shape-shift into several forms based on elements, such as the flame. Fury also has to solve puzzles and jump platforms. The game reintroduces some of the enemies from the previous parts and introduces new monsters. The enemies in Darksiders III are less numerous but stronger and tougher, taking more effort to beat them.

Darksiders III reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
As some apparently forget, Part 1 and Part 2 were also technically different. Therefore, to say it is different from the Part before it should be nothing negative, but only to note that the Games are different from each other, just as their Protagonists are different from each other. Many compare the Game to Dark Souls, wondering is why? Because you collect Souls, because it's Hard, because when you leave your Souls behind in your dying Place. Not exactly many things that agree here. But well these days everything is like Dark Souls. I'd rather compare it to the latest God of War. Again, the Combat System is completely different from the previous Sharing. More focus is put on the Skill, dodge and stuff. And you get different new Skills that allow you to open new paths, or old Previously closed paths. Apart from the Kratos and Fury are quite angry and to access certain "Berserker" Forms, this declaration served first that not all always thinking in the Self-direction, it is not all always Dark Souls. But let's all about the actual Review. Graphic: The Stem is over to agree with the others, so it's easy to connect the Parts. Beautiful World Design, good animations. Special to Fury even when she uses her Forms. With the Combat Effects, they have sometimes exaggerated it, as it is difficult to see in many explosions when the opponent is attacking. Fight: This Time you Fight with a Whip ... Now at the beginning. With new Forces come new Weapons. You have some opportunities to change your Playing Goal, especially through the "Runes" that you can embed in the Weapons. In Some cases, however, the Camera is more of a fine one than the enemy itself, usually this Happened in narrow streets or Rooms, that the Targeting System did not capture the opponent and thus one had to guess where the opponent is now. And yes, it's heavier than the Parts before it. Story: Without Spoilers. Towards the end, I'm kind of missing, a few connections together. Why this? Where now? Otherwise a gelding Story in a World set in front of Darksider 1. Everything in all, I had Fun, even if I died many times and put the Level Of difficulty down at The 3rd Boss of Apocalypse because I am not as good as I would like to be. The further you get in the game, the more opportunities in the Fight you have which one keeps it varied, dodging is probably the most important thing you should learn quickly. I'm already looking forward to the next part, and thus the story of Strife. How will the Gameplay change here? Just wait and see.

Haiku Review: Love the new combat / What is this sadness I feel / The credits now roll
Favorite Thing: Enjoyed most everything about this game but I especially liked the new combat. I'm not much of a hack & slash fan so this new Dark Souls + Darksiders combat was great.
Least Favorite Thing: I miss the open areas of Darksiders 2.

Date Completed: 2018-12-28
Playtime: 14h
Enjoyment: 9/10
Recommendation: Definitely! I loved this game, you should play it.
