In this video, titled Darksiders Book One: The Horseman's Road, we get a look at the tools that former apocalyptic horseman War utilizes in his twisted quest for redemption.

I'm liking the look of Darksiders more and more each time I see it. The gameplay does seem derivative of other action platformer titles, but I don't see anything wrong with that. I don't mind if a game looks or plays like another one, as long as it is entertaining. If we avoided things only because they looked like other things then we never would have had that crush on the girl at the record shop who looked like a punky version of Cameron Diaz, and then where would we be?

Note that this is the UK version of the video, and Darksiders hits North America on January 5th.
