Now, don’t get me wrong. I still had a great time playing through Dark Souls 2 and would recommend everyone play it whether they are a fan of the series or not, but I felt for every step forward, it took one back. It’s a testament to the series brand as a whole to make an otherwise solid title feel disappointing, but I’ve come to expect more and I hope they find the right path through the dark in the next sequel.

Dark Souls 2 on PC feels like a significantly more competent port than its predecessor. It looks great, runs smoothly, and comes packed with all the visual tweaks you could want. Sure, the mouse and keyboard controls are still underwhelming--but so long as you don't mind plugging in a gamepad, this is far and away the best version of Dark Souls 2.

Dark Souls has a fiercely loyal fan base. They love it, and will staunchly defend that love to the last man. Dark Souls 2, for me, is an exercise in frustration. While I appreciate the skill component of combat and creativity on display, the punishing and repetitive nature of the gameplay makes Dark Souls 2 feel like a errand rather than entertainment.
