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.

Scholar of the First Sin is best suited for two types of player: Complete Souls newcomers that insist on playing with the latest hardware, and returning warriors who soaked up every bit of new game-plus content loaded into the original. While I don't think the encounters are quite up to the level of the original, it's hard to argue with more of one of 2014's best games.

On the face of it, Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin isn't all that impressive when compared to other remasters. Visually, it's a step up, but it's not a current gen eye-melter, and if you've played the DLC already, you'd be forgiven for thinking there's little reason to get this. However, the improved visuals, much smoother frame rate, all the DLC, and the remixed enemies and items make for a great, if subtle remaster, and if you're a hardened Souls fan, or you've yet to play the game, this is essential.
