I own this game on Steam.

My first foray into the Darksiders franchise. And I like it!
This game is pretty fun. A simple hack and slash game with elements of Zelda like dungeon crawling and exploration.
Set in a post apocalyptic world, you play as War, one of the Four Horseman, who is framed for causing Armageddon prematurely. It is up to War to uncover the truth of what happened and try to set things right and clear his name.

You will fight through both the forces of Hell and the legions of Heaven while also dealing with the undead remains of Humans.
The game isn't all too long really, especially if you know what you're doing. I completed my Apocalyptic difficulty run in about 13 hours, but I was not trying to speed run. I did my normal run as my first play through in about 40 hours. I like to explore and take in everything a game has to offer me.

The achievements aren't too difficult, and you'll likely get most just through your regular play through of the game. Some you'll have to go out of your way to get, like killing 100 enemies with items from the environment. Or a couple of grind heavy ones like riding your horse for 100 miles or grinding enough souls to buy everything from Vulgrim's shop. But nothing too taxing. There's some helpful tricks you can use to make the souls and weapon experience grinding much faster and easier, just look through the guides on Steam.

I give this a good thumbs up. Just be sure and play the Warmastered edition to avoid the bugs and some game breaking issues with the original version.

Mistake Status: This game has a lot and I submitted several. I still have some of the cut scenes and stuff recorded that I'll go back through and comb for more mistakes.

Continuity mistake: The Choking Grounds: Once freed, the Gatekeeper starts walking towards War and speaks "Ancestors praise you." As he says this, he almost right to War, but the camera cuts to a different angle before he finishes the last word and suddenly the Gatekeeper is several feet behind War. It seems the animators had him jump forward to keep from showing the Gatekeeper stepping on War.

Phantom General: Do you know what's imprisoned here? There are things even you should fear, Horseman! Once you were strong. But now, you are weak, and you are alone! The Destroyer knows of your coming. Even now, he moves his legions against you!
War: Then I will make this quick.

Trivia: During the opening scene, some civilians are running towards a bus for cover. One of them gets mauled by a Minion Demon and lets out the familiar Wilhelm Scream.
