The combat is satisfying and rewarding, as for the story it's pretty good and the enviroments are great and atmospheric.

Despite its flaws it is really enjoyable. Sure people like Dark souls original more that doesn't mean this game ain't good.



Dark Souls II is an ideal game for veteran players, but it's also a good chance for newcomers. From Software added some positive concessions while keeping the essence of the franchise. Action, exploration, replay value and great online experiences in another sweet nightmare.



This game had my favourite souls weapon a twinblade, I miss that in other games. This game also had few amazing locations which was never replicated in any other games in that series, shrine of amana comes to mind.



I loved every bit ,hope you do as well.

it may be a 7, but 7 is a good score. It's not a great game imo because the game is unpolished, but Miyazaki wasn't there in the majority of the game's development. Despite the flaws, the game is still a good game

Dark Souls II is a mixed bag. In many ways the experience you’ll get out of it will be based on whether you’re a newcomer to the series or not. Some of the questionable design choices and changes may not be so questionable to the new players but at the same time, they might be easy to overlook. The land of Drangleic has a lot to offer and most of it is due to the legacy and ideas upheld by the franchise itself. The independent merits found in Dark Souls II are few and far between.

There were several times that the direction of my character’s attacks never really seemed to be headed in the direction I was commanding. Lastly, there were some poorly rendered areas of tall grass and trees that looked cheap and kind of low budget against the backdrop of an incredibly rendered background. But all in all, I had no real issues with the game. There wasn’t anything I encountered that would make me not want to continue playing. That being said, I think I am going to go play more…right now.

Dark Souls 2 is a damn good challenge that asks you to call upon your reflexes, skills, and intelligence to make your way through. To love Dark Souls 2 is an irrational love. It’s an intoxicating blend of masochistic gameplay and mystery that has kept me engrossed for hours and will continue to do so as I play through it again and again.
