Masters of War

 darksiders warmastered edition review


It was 2010 when a European debutant team managed to amaze the world with a new intellectual property that had not been talked about until it was released on the market.


If the name of Darksiders does not tell you anything or the action is not your forte, or six years ago you were intent on disposing of the post-Christmas videogame drunkenness and you missed this pearl arrived in the very first days of the year, know that you have I lost something exhilarating.


From our original review shines the enthusiasm for the ability of Darksiders to combine effective gameplay with an excellent level design and an excellent characterization of the protagonist, embellished by the design of Joe Madureira, one of the most talented contemporary cartoonists in circulation.


The result was a particular title with a character to sell, capable of acting as a progenitor to a series paused by the failure of THQ. So waiting to see the third chapter of the history of the horsemen of the apocalypse, we played with gusto darksiders warmastered edition on PlayStation 4.

 Darksiders warmastered improves the excellent title of 2010, improving its graphics and frame rates

 Darksiders warmastered edition gameplay


It seems like many years have passed, but it was only 2010 when the games were sold complete on launch day and what was installed on the console in conjunction with the first launch was what the developers had spent years of hard work and effort.

Masters of War

Except for a few corrective patches, they were not yet in fashion DLC, expansions or downloadable contents of any kind that would enrich the initial offer. darksiders warmastered edition ps4 is one of the last exponents of this philosophy, so in the Warmastered Edition you will find exactly what you found in 2010, just a little bit nicer.


The remastered title Vigil Games in fact points to the new look guaranteed by the major horses made available by the current generation of consoles that have allowed substantial improvements both from the visual point of view and gameplay going in fact to correct the major problems.


The combination of the last generation of resolution at 720p and 30 frames per second has undergone a massive increase going up to 1080p and 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, while it has had to stop at 30 frames per second on Wii U with a version halfway between the two generations.


For owners of PlayStation 4 Pro, there is also the opportunity to enjoy the adventures of War in a 4K upscaled at 60 frames per second, thus greatly increasing the visual performance but without having to compromise on the fluidity of the action of play.


Doubling the frame rate was perhaps the most significant improvement, given the rich and frenetic gameplay that characterizes Darksiders: it is a third-person action game in which the more or less complex combos are the only way to make their way through hordes of enemies , the 60 frames per second give the image greater softness and harmoniousness allowing us to twirl between demons and undead menending blows always precise and punctual.


To improve the graphic impact we also think a whole series of improvements such as the doubled resolution of the textures, new post processing effects and the higher quality of the shadows that give greater depth to the evocative world set up by Joe Madureira and his companions. 


The wise use of the colors of the American cartoonist remains the most recognizable characteristic touch of the style of Darksiders, now as then able to capture from the first screen thanks to its captivating protagonist and the equally well-characterized antagonists.
