The undead curse continues to spread across the kingdom of Drangleic with Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, a compilation of the critically acclaimed Dark Souls II along with its three DLC chapters (Crown Of The Sunken King, Crown Of The Old Iron King, and Crown Of The Ivory King) along with an array of all-new content.

Face the challenge once again in this sequel to the hardcore action RPG. Dark Souls II features a new hero, a new storyline, and an unfamiliar world for players to survive in while delivering its signature brand of unrelenting punishment that players hunger for. Epic battles with gruesome enemies and blood-thirsty bosses await adventurers as they traverse through a devastated world filled with death and despair; only those who are strong willed or cunning can survive this journey to achieve great glory.

Gothic, ghastly, and grisly, Dark Souls 2 is as evocative and weird and brutal as any other entries in the series, but is noticeably less deep. It takes two steps forward, and one step back, innovating here and there but ultimately feeling less rewarding than its siblings. A solid play for Souls fans, but not the best place for newcomers to start.

Overall, Scholar of the First Sin is a fantastic upgrade and worth the purchase if you never had the chance to play Dark Souls 2 on PC or current gen consoles. Even if you did play through it before, the DLC alone is worth checking out. The visual upgrades are rather stunning if you haven’t played on PC, and the new enemy positions offer veteran players a nice surprise.

For newcomers Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is a superb package, with the wonderful DLC thrown in and the visuals at the best they have ever been. However, it's also tough going thanks to the remixed enemy placements and new random encounters. For veterans this is a welcome return to Drangleic but not one that is mandatory, as the changes feel all too insubstantial at times. So while Scholar of the First Sin is the definitive package, it isn’t one that is required for repeat visitors.

It's the best version of one of last year's best games and runs beautifully on new-gen. Worth buying, especially if you've never played DS2 before.
