Was flicking through various game pages on Wikipedia, and it states on there that this game has sold over 3 million WW. Could be undertracked by quite a bit.

@ Dahum same thought. However we may see some adjustments when R3 comes out. VG tends to update prequel numbers. Not to mention the first did over 2m in EMEAA and R2 only .93 Definitely undertracked.

these numbers are so unfair.......this game should have sold above 3 million for what its worth.

Vekta posted 03/05/2011, 10:22
btw these are pretty good numbers, it may have not reached the originals lifetime sales yet, but 2 million is still good. I think R3 has the potential to reach the first ones lifetime sales as their bringing back the traits from the first one, such as co-op, wheel weapon, regenerative health, etc.

@hottotfest VG does a great job, dont be so harsh, their job its so good so many webs and companys are using this numbers as reference. I know that sometimes we that a certain game should sell so much more but reality its other, for example i think that this game should sell even more that the first one, but the market its complicated, and aitherway this r great numbers!!!! So don't stop to coming, its the best site for numbers in the Videogames comunity.

I want to know why the game sold so poorly, I mean, even though the narrative of the story wasn't so great, it was still a really cool singleplayer experience, and the multiplayer was mindblowing...

I mean, the multiplayer is how Halo should have been...

@MM, I disagree, admitedly there are parts of the game where the graphics are great, but most of the time textures are pretty muddy and poor, its juts not famed for its graphics. OPM UK said so and i agree with them

@darkheart709: I totally agree. Fun game. Still play it, especially the co-op.
@headshot91 and sbvgc2012: I think the graphics are better than just average, but not great compared to the games you listed. However, those games are a lot more recent, so that's not the most fair comparison. I will agree that certain components like the blood animations were a step backwards from RFOM. Still a good looking game and worth playing 15 months later!

The game's terrible compared to Resistance 1. It got those sales by making Resistance like every other FPS, getting rid of the click wheel, health bar, unique wepons elec. Trying to make the game like halo.
A big fraction of the game sales were from Europe and Japan, since they Americanized the game they lost sales there.

Resistance 2=fail Insomniac pres even came out and said so himself.
