looks simply beautiful. Really hope it plays well and is more than a few levels. Any price tag confirmed?

The game has six big areas and six smaller. Took me around 18-19hrs for 103% (in the leaderboards some people have 117% on their stats, so i'm missing something).
Plays really well and it's combination from all of my favourite genres - platforming, hack & slash, rpg. How to not love it? :D :D

If someone want to buy it, i don't recommend reading reviews - just try the demo. There are a lot of great surprises through the game, which can be easily spoiled. And i'm not talking about story here. ^^

Looks great!

Holy Shit... HD Video @ 60fps... so smooth. I take it back, this will be the Downloadable GOTY. If next gen doesn't have more 60fps 2D games, i'll go PC exclusive.

You can perform ''Izuna Drop'' just like Ninja Gaiden with exactly the same buttons combination - X, Y, X, X, X, Y. ^^

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
