I don't know why you keep going on about black. Darksiders actually has a lot of colour in it.

Probably for the same reason people complain about lack of color in other games. That or he means black as in dark and edgy.

Your still judging the game on appearances alone which is no better than the Zelda fans who complained about Wind Waker just because the game looked too kiddie and cartoonish.

Not need for the dramatics. It's just his opinion and he was completely civil about it. As for the game being "dark" and "edgy", I don't think Darksiders can really be compared to a lot of games along those lines. You're playing a horseman rather than an ordinary person, so it's not like War is a cliche "woe is me, I'm a big loner, and now I'm out to kill everybody" kind of character. Technically what I wrote about War is probably true, but you don't see him crying about.

darksiders is a total rip off of Zelda, the main characters might as well be wearing green spandex, I hope there's a legal case against this unoriginal piece of crap

Must troll harder. You aren't impressing anyone.

I have recently picked up the game after being recommended it by a friend who saw me playing AC;R. Indon't have DS1, so I was knew to the series, and it reminds me of AC. I havn't played ANY zelda, but that must mean that AC is just a rehashed Zelda, by said train on thought? Or what about Prince of Persia? Very similar yet again.

The story needs a bit to work on in its coherency (maybe an issue to myself being new), but that aside, the bright and pop-art graphics are a pleasure (after Dishonored, at least) and the free running with simple button mashing being a pleasing cross between Dynasty Warriors combat and AC's overly boring and tedious Combat mechanism (itself barely improved since AC1).

I hardly think I've killed anyone in AC;R outside of the odd target that I was unable to Assassinate, Arrow Storm or simply call 6 Master Assassins to deal with.
