When I move around and scroll the camera around, I see a lot of screen tearing/rippling and its giving me a serious headache...I love this game but I have to take breaks often, it keeps making me a little nauseous...

The same thing happened to my friend when he was watching me play. I think its due to the combination of bright colors, quick in game motions, and lack of reticule when moving/spinning around.

Yep, gives me a headacxhe at times as well. Guess it has to do with the tearing- probably the worst I have ever seen.

Still a great game though.

Update coming to fix the screen tearing.

Darksiders 360 Screen-Tearing Fix on Way
Joe Mad confirms Vigil working to eliminate graphical issues on Xbox 360.
by Matt Wales, IGN UK

UK, January 7, 2010 - With Vigil Games' apocalyptic action adventure Darksiders poised for release on January 8 in the UK and Europe, we had chance to sit down with studio head Joe Madureira during his whistle stop tour of London and managed to get some official word on reported screen-tearing issues plaguing only the Xbox 360 version of the game.

Madeuira confirmed that Vigil has been made aware of the issue and is already planning a fix: "It's something that's really not a difficult fix for us and so we're going to implement a patch to resolve the problem. We're fairly certain it'll happen really soon so look out for it."

We thoroughly enjoyed Vigil's inaugural effort and it's great to hear the studio's eager to iron out the wrinkles so soon after they've come to light.

Cool, never really got headaches, this is one of the coolest games I've played in a long while so I guess I just look past the graphical tearing.

I will be grabbing this game today once the shops are open, I've heard so many good things about this game and the screen tearing is the only real thing that will bug me, so glad to hear they will [atch it up asap.

Awesome, I'm glad EA isn't involved with this game, or we would never see a fix.

Seriously, everyone keeps saying "screen tearing". I don't see it. I haven't seen it once. What are we talking about here?

I'm going to go ahead and guess it's a bigger issue when using a HD TV, most noticeable with 1080p. If you are using a regular TV or settings you most likely won't notice it.

It's where you'll notice a line run across the screen and "tear".It's not actually the graphics tearing or anything,more just a very noticable line that cuts across your screen.As mentioned,it may not be noticable on a small TV but play on a bigscreen HDTV and you'll notice it straight away.It's bad but I've seen much worse before though I forget which game it was.
