  • Like a bout of flu in the office, God of War style gaming seems to be going around the development community.  This isn’t anything unusual – when a game gets it right and has great success, it spawns a lot of imitators.  Eventually they become so pervasive (see Mario style platforming, for instance) that we forget they are imitations at all.  Still,  it’s HOW you “re-use” ideas that really matters – you can crib concepts and still present a fairly unique experience.  The difference with Darksiders is that they didn’t just lift the combat from God of War, they also appropriated elements from Zelda, Portal, and even Panzer Dragoon.  There really isn’t a single original element in Darksiders, but perhaps its originality rests in its unique mix of a variety of game play elements.
