Game Overview

Darksiders II is an action-adventure video game developed by Vigil Games and published for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Microsoft Windows and Wii U by THQ. The sequel to the 2010 game, Darksiders, it takes place parallel to the first game and follows a new character, Death.

The Four Horsemen (War, Strife, Fury, and Death) are the last of the Nephilim, a fusion of angel and demon, who waged a bloody war on the rest of creation. To preserve the Balance of the Universe, the Four Horsemen received incredible powers from the Charred Council in exchange for slaughtering their brethren. Disobeying the Council's orders, Death trapped the souls of his fallen brethren in an amulet. When War is charged with the crime of bringing about the Apocalypse early, Death sets out on a personal mission to prove his brothers innocence and resurrect humanity.

Revising my previous comment, its
looking like a strong contender for the
best game no one played award at the end
of the year.

Hopefully it holds steady and enjoys
good holiday sales. Just to point out
first week doesn't include Europe,
where the game came out a full week
after america. Both this and Sleeping
Dogs have done similar numbers despite
getting really good reviews. Possible
both games are being hit by the looming
holiday release rush; everyone is
waiting for CoD/Fifa/Halo/AC etc and/or
saving for Christmas in general. I still
think both games will get good sales
through Q4, they're the type that
don't post massive figures in a single
week but have decent legs.

It probably did have a good first week,
vgchartz isn't very accurate.

Too bad this didn't have a better first

I'd have to agree with DevilishSix
about this game. I already have 20 plus
hours logged playing this game and I
haven't wanted to play any of my other
games since I got it. I don't have the
first Darksiders game but I'll
definitely be picking it up after I'm
done with this one. The game play is
fun and graphics are beautiful, it's a
must own.
