Darksiders II Review | CraveOnline

Alex Keen: "Like the original game, Darksiders II is a third-person hack n’ slash platformer. While the first game borrowed heavily from Zelda games, this influence has since been tapered in this sequel. Horse-riding has become less important to the gameplay and has been replaced by a much more efficient fast travel mechanism. Sure, the instructional crow in Darksiders II is reminiscent of Navi from Ocarina of Time, but let’s not get too distracted by whether or not Darksiders is similar to Zelda or not. While Darksiders II is a game heavily influenced by other games, it does a great job of picking from the best of the best to create a complex and unique game formula." (Darksiders 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10
