Check out what various critics have said about the isometric action title.
Though not quite the same experience as previous titles in the series, Airship Syndicate’s Darksiders Genesis is a decent spin-off with its isometric gameplay. You can check out our review of the experience here but many other publications also enjoyed what the prequel had to offer. Check out the accolades trailer below for more details.
Darksiders Genesis takes place before the first game. Players control Strife and War, two of the Four Horsemen, as they struggle to stop Lucifer. Co-op support is available but solo players can switch between both warriors at any time and utilize their skills.
While Strife is a gunslinger who fights from a distance, War is about up close and personal combat. Players can customize their skills while also collecting Creature Cores from slain foes. Darksiders Genesis isn’t a long game – it takes roughly 15 hours or so to finish – but might be worth checking out when it releases for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One in February 2020. It’s currently out for PC and Google Stadia.
