Day 14: Darksiders, Darksiders 2 and Steep

Way back in 2010 when Gareth reviewed Darksiders he had the following to say:
“Overall, though, Darksiders is a stunning fusion of RPG and Hack ‘n’ Slash that pays off brilliantly. A large chunk of the game may have been borrowed from elsewhere, but it all comes together in a distinctly unique package that is well worth your money.”
“Whilst Death’s entry in the Darksiders series certainly has better gameplay mechanics and a better style than War’s, the story fails to make a mark and the game, for as big as it is, can soon become monotonous at points. It’s still a good game, though, with excellent RPG elements, flowing combat, some brilliant boss battles and lots to do post-completion. If you enjoyed the first game, then it’s definitely worth a look, just don’t expect to be blown away by level design or narrative.”
Meanwhile, for Ubisoft’s venture into winter sports, Jim wrote the following about Steep:
“The game works best in how it empowers you to toggle between idle exploration and obsessive score chasing whenever it suits you. However, as time drags on, if that drive to make headway begins to wane, there’s little else to keep players hooked. Then, of course, there’s the ridiculous online-only policy that is bound to frustrate, adding a completely expendable layer to the year’s best winter sports game.”
