A review for Darksiders II via eGamer.co.za -- Quote:
"Of all the games that borrow from other games, no other series has done so quite as shamelessly or as abundantly as the Darksiders series. The first game was a difficult one to place, containing elements of action, adventure, puzzling, platforming and even a light RPG system. It borrowed from such games as Legend of Zelda, God of War and Portal in order to create the world that you experienced. Now with Darksiders II, the job of classifying the game has become even more difficult with the obvious Prince of Persia and Shadows of the Colossus inspirations thrown in as well. "
