Darksiders turned out to be quite a polarizing game, with people loving or hating it. Now you can decide which camp you're in when a chunky demo of the game hits later this month.

The 90-minute demo, which hits the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on Feb. 25, contains the Twilight Cathedral, the entire first level of the campaign. The level includes puzzles, equipment to find and even two boss battles.


"We are really pumped to be bringing a playable demo for Darksiders to Xbox 360 and PlayStation3," said David Adams, General Manager of Vigil Games. "We really wanted to give gamers a true idea of the variety of gameplay that the game offers and so rather than just making a standard 20-minute demo version of the first few levels, we decided to give away this massive level and reveal the true essence of the game."

For those of you who have played through the game, I'm still desperately trying to get caught up on my library of titles, is that the sort of level that will sell this game? Is it a good cross-section of the full experience?

I'm just going to say, on the record, I didn't HATE the game. I just thought it was...eh. Middle of the road.

That said, it's a shame the demo is of the first level...the game doesn't really pick up until you're well into it.
