THQ Nordic did a very nice job handling this remaster. All the mechanics that made the original Darksiders a hit are still there and thriving. Small technical issues held this game back from a more perfect score. Keep it up THQ Nordic and let's see the third entry soon!

ou can’t really go wrong with this title and with it being marginally cheaper than most AAA games, it’s a good value proposition as well.

Darksiders is the same game it was back in 2010; a fantastic experience. The addition of enhanced visuals and a smoother frame rate only bolsters that fact. For new players, the Warmastered Edition is an enjoyable journey that encapsulates all the things that makes Darksiders great. For veterans of the series, saddle up Ruin and join War for another adventure. The apocalypse never looked so inviting!

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is a beautiful reminder of how great this franchise was and could still be in today’s gaming landscape. With THQ Nordic solidly on board with the series after releasing the first two games on current generation consoles, it’s only a matter of time before we hear the inevitable on Darksiders 3. Right? We can only hope.

If you're a hardcore fan and wish to catch up on the story of the Darksiders series before the third game comes out, I'd say you can skip the first game entirely and just watch a YouTube video instead. Do, however, pickup Darksiders II: The Deathfinitive Edition, since all gameplay concerns are absolutely addressed in the sequel. Plus, Death as a character is a lot cooler than War.

Sure, it's an old game and it's been released and re-released a few times but on Switch, Darksiders Warmastered truly shines brighter than ever before.

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is the perfect example of how to port a game over to the less-powerful Nintendo Switch. Giving the players the option of if they prefer the resolution or the framerate, and actually having some noticeable differences, was the best decision the developers could have had. Instead of opting for fancy gimmicks or trying to convert the game to utilise the motion controls or touch screen, the game is a perfect 1:1 recreation of the 2016 remaster which was released on other consoles, only with the added benefit of taking it with you whenever and wherever you want.
