Darksiders Genesis

I think Darksiders Genesis has been largely misunderstood based on it's camera angle. Choosing to go with a 3D isometic angle has led to people thinking it's a Diablo clone and being disappointed. While there is no real loot or class system, it does take elements from that and works really well. You play as Strife and War and can switch characters any time. Strife is a ranged specialist, War is a hack and slasher with a ridiculously large sword. There are only a few minor drawbacks to an otherwise excellent experience. The story is a light excuse to romp through various beautiful environments mowing down hordes of demons, it's well voiced and it's great fun to play.
