Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
Top Critic Average
There's been no shortage of great games this year, but Darksiders: Warmastered Edition still holds up exceptionally well, and it's easy to recommend. It's not quite as fresh and exciting as it was in 2010, but I still think it's something everyone should try out. If you've played it before, it's worth revisiting. If you haven't, it's a solid adventure that's well worth your time. The budget price makes it a great value, with a campaign that will take most people between 12 to 20 hours to complete. I'm glad to see that THQ Nordic seems interested in keeping the series in the public eye, and I hope this means that the Darksiders franchise will be resurrected. I look forward to seeing how Pestilence and Famine will play in Darksiders 3 and 4.
Darksiders is still a beautiful game, that follows the classic Zelda formula, with an apocalyptic setting and comic style characters. It is the same game released for Wii U, with no additions.

1080p and 60fps (or even 4K and 60fps on PS4 Pro) and the very good price of 19,99 euros give the game a new chance to be enjoyed.

A masterful re-up with a great story, a beautifully grim world and exciting, fast-paced gameplay. And that price point makes it essential.
While not the definitive version, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is no slouch on the Nintendo Switch. Whether played in graphics or performance mode, docked or handheld, it's still an outstanding version of an already outstanding game.
Minor conversion issues aside that can likely be solved, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition has the intrinsic fortune of being a timeless looker with its distinct visuals, which benefits from appropriate resolution and performance buffs that bring it up to speed. A fantasy world that retains its wonder and gracefully aged gameplay easily ensure that this game's horseman can confidently cometh again.
With a rewarmaster now under its belt, one would assume that it's well worth going back to it. In some regards that is true. The game's vibrant art style is complimented all the more with the visual and textural upgrade, and the smoother frame rate causes War himself to look like a powerhouse against every enemy that he faces. However, that's all that this remaster has to offer.
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is one of the best remasters this generation. Not only is this game fantastic, but it is also one of several hidden gems a lot of gamers may have missed its first time around.
A commendable remaster at a decent price point, Darksiders Warmastered gives those who missed out another chance to try an underappreciated gem of the PS3 era. Just prepare for some mechanical rust.
The game gives players a certain level of customization to suit their play style, and definitely rewards players who spend more time looking for hidden areas and secrets.
