Darksiders 3

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Gamer Made To Replay Sections Repeatedly.

Justin Towell
The Darksiders story begins again, this time with the turn of Fury, the third Horseman of the Apocalypse. She’s sarcastic, utterly lethal and has amazing hair. If that sounds familiar, then yes, you could be forgiven for thinking that Darksiders 3 is a Bayonetta rip-off when you begin, what with its witchy protagonist, accessible combat command strings, slow-motion dodge moves and even angels for enemies at some points. But while the combat system and chunky environments share a lot with Bayonetta, the reality soon becomes apparent: This is actually a lot more like Dark Souls.

That sentence might have you groaning – FromSoftware’s opus made a relatively small splash on release, but the ripples only seem to be gaining in amplitude as time goes on. And lo, Darksiders 3 sees you harvesting souls from dead enemies, before using them to level up when you get back to a safe space. If you die on the way, you drop them all, but you do have a couple of chances to reclaim them after respawning, where you’ll find them floating around in a nifty special effect, waiting to be collected again.
