From Strategyinformer.com: "The first Darksiders was one of those games that was a slow-burner – slightly under appreciated and under promoted when it came out, but if you talked to anyone who’d actually played it, you’d hear mostly good things. It wasn’t perfect, and it drew a lot of comparisons with games like Zelda, but it was a good start to a good idea. It’s good to see then that the developers – Vigil Games – got given the go ahead to do a sequel. Is it the sequel a fan would want? We’re not sure, but the message in Darksiders II is clear – this is where it really begins".
