Darksiders II - Summary

Darksiders II follows the exploits of Death, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in an action-packed tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels Death across an expansive gameworld as he tries to redeem his brother, War, the horseman blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Like the original Darksiders game before it, the second iteration of the series is primarily a hack ‘n slash adventure. The game takes place across netherworld environments, including "The White city," an outpost where angels live, and "The Eternal Throne," a floating fortress where the Lords of the Dead stand guard over souls that need to be cleansed. Although Death is the most feared of the Four Horsemen, his physical abilities are very different than his brother, War. Death is far more nimble, and relies on a combination of melee and ranged attacks. In combat Death's primary weapon is his huge iconic scythe, with a wide range of other weapons and usable items that must be gathered as the game progresses. Weapons can be dual-wielded, upgradable armor can be acquired for protection and Death has access to his terrifying and powerful mount, Despair.

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.

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.

I enjoyed the first Darksiders, but like Empire Strikes Back was to Star Wars, Darksiders 2 surpasses the original. I am disappointed by the sales. This developer has poured a huge amount of work in this game and it shows. Please try this game and show your support I bet you will be surprised how good it is. It is on a short list for GOTY for me.
