I got it when it came out. Its amazing, the gameplay is very fun despite some very hard puzzles, the graphics are quite well-done, the voice acting is excellent and captures the perfect tones for the characters and the plot is very good, very good twists as well. Plus who doesn't love a good sync-kill?.

I am up to the final level, The Black Throne. I'd recommend this game to anyone who enjoys puzzles or hack and slash games.

I haven't played it, but I do agree it looks pretty badass. Not the graphics or the gameplay itself mind you, those might be good but they aren't what draw me to want to lay this, its the story itself that does.

I mean, you are War, horseman of the apocalypse and supposedly the one who started Armageddon before it should have happened; banished to wander the aftermath of the great war you decide to take this and make it into something good and find out who set you up and is really behind creating this hell on earth. That, in and of itself, seems like an awesome plot to me, enough for me to want to play and find out who was behind it because it supposedly was not the leader of either side. (Perhaps it was one of the other horsemen and a greedy few others from both sides, plotting for an end to the eternal war and leave you the scapegoat?)

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I wont spoil the story for anyone but I will say this. The other horsemen do NOT appear in this game. Death, Fury and Strife are being saved for the sequel. They will look awesome though.



In this game there is only War. And what follows War but Ruin.
