5 out of 5 eggsGreat game!!!

Pros: Great game for being free!!! This is one game I would have bought, but I got lucky & got it for free with my processor instead. :-D

Cons: Requires a Steam account & an internet connection to play, download & install it. What you get is a code to activate the game on Steam. This may not be a problem for most people, but can be a problem if you are on dial-up, have a limited bandwidth or just don't like Steam.

PC version of the game is a bit touchy with what gamepads it will allow you to play the game on. It's designed to run with an XBOX controller. Considering I use a Logitech RumblePad 2 controller (PlayStation clone), I had to do some searching on the web to find a way to make the game accept this controller.

If you decide you want to use the keyboard/mouse instead, you have to disable your HID-devices otherwise the game will not allow you access to the keybindings for the game.

Other Thoughts: I enjoyed the game from what I played of it, but my video card wasn't quite up to par for it. Decided I needed a new video card before I could continue to play it.

2 out of 5 eggsWhat?

Pros: -Pretty
-Easy to play
-It was free with a GPU

Cons: -Repetitive
-Linear
-Just another console-to-PC atrocity

Other Thoughts: Hey, the game probably has its mindless fun appeal for some players, but at the end of the day it is just another one of the growing number of games that are clearly console ports, and offers little of value to PC gamers.

1 out of 5 eggsWould not Launch

Pros: Came free with new AMD processor. AMD should put a stop to giving out such junk with their products.

Cons: Huge download. Did not give me an option of which drive to load it on. Installs Steam first. What a bunch of trash. Why should I have to install Steam to install the game? Anti piracy I guess. Just more layers of junk and complexity. Then to top it off, when I try to run the game, its says "Preparing to Launch" and that's all I get. No game. Now I have to waste time looking for a solution to fix a game which has poor ratings to begin with.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time or money on this unless you want to practice your software troubleshooting skills.

5 out of 5 eggsFree...

Pros: Was free with GPU.

Cons: 9 GB of Hard Drive space for full install. Took hours to download, and I have FIOS 25/25 at home. Good luck to anyone wishing to download this on pokey connections.

Other Thoughts: Need large HD and fast internet.

4 out of 5 eggsFollow up review

Pros: This is a follow up review to - "Steamed over Steam". After playing the game, I thought it was decent, I haven't played G of War so I have no comparison. The Graphics are decent and I thought the plot was alright. For being Free, it is a good deal and worth the time to play.

Cons: All you do is kill everything, which isn't all that different from most other games, but they could have added a bit more problem solving/something to break up the constant fighting.

Other Thoughts: Reason why I was upset over the Steam account situation was more because it appeared that it actually came with a DVD of the game. I haven't been a gamer for a long time and was not aware of how much the scene has changed. Steam really isn't that big of a deal, it actually is pretty convenient.

5 out of 5 eggsNot really worth buying, but you didn't have to.

Pros: I was pleasantly surprised with the gameplay, it's sort of a button masher but it had some decent puzzles. The plot wasn't as worthless as I thought it would be, and of course it was free with my AMD Phenom II.

Cons: Very easy game, I played it on the hardest difficulty and only died about 6 times to boss fights.

No character development at all.

Not really worth buying if you aren't into that kind of game, and if you are play g od of war first.

Other Thoughts: It's a hack and slash game similar to g od of war. Actually it is the exact same as g od of war. Just instead of playing Kratos, the g od of war, you play the red horseman of the apocalypse, war. Huge difference right? Your character is also exactly like Kratos so he has no personality and just kills everything. Now just replace Greek mythology with Christian mythology and you have Darksiders.

If you like that kind of game you will probably like it, if not then you won't. I'm not a huge fan but the game was free so it was a good break from TF2 and Eve Online.

Also, newegg won't let me say the word g od in this review, even though the context is relevant to the product.
