Sinner’s marriage of Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus features a unique, devilish twist. How successfully does it both emulate and differentiate itself from FromSoftware’s offerings? Check out the opening paragraph from my review, then follow the link at the end to Gaming Historia for the full article. Enjoy!

“Dark Souls’ winning formula has no shortage of imitators. Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption also borrows heavily from FromSoftware’s playbook of arduous action-RPGs. However, it separates itself from an increasingly crowded pack by cutting out the dungeon crawling and focusing squarely on boss fights.
