Although most developers exaggerate the play length (I remember Miyamoto saying Skyward Sword would feature 100 hours), its still very interesting. I never got through completing Darksiders 1 so I'm curious how long it took others to play through it.

I took about 17 hours to beat the first game without getting shards and stuff, just a straight playthrough. So yea, if you try to collect everything and go for achievements then you're looking at more.

Darksiders 2 will be bigger so perhaps it will be more than 25 hours!

Yea, the 25 hours they stated is only if you simply focus on the main quest/story chain and not do any of the side stuff. Very cool, I'm always down for a good-sized action adventure game.

Most developers kind of stretch it and make their games seem bigger since they assume no one will buy their game if it only lasts 8-10 hours. So I say it will last maybe 12-15 hours to complete, not 25 hours.

Who cares how long it will last! The first one was amazing and the second one looks to be better than ever. I'll take phenomenal 15 hours over a game that drags on for 40 hours any day ; D

I'm pretty sure the 25 hours means the story + side-quests because you could fly through the first game's story in less than a dozen hours.

Darksiders 2 has RPG elements so I expect it to be longer. I just hope there's no cutting corners with padding to make the game longer, such as wave after wave of same enemy types or large stretches of empty areas.
