Summary

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. Players seeking to share their experience will discover a revamped server-based multiplayer mode that puts a distinct Dark Souls II twist on the concept of playing with others.

Rest assured if you liked Dark and Demon's you will like Dark Souls II. I was skeptical at first given the proposed changes, but ultimately I had an enjoyable time as I was aimlessly exploring its world and dying over and over to its bosses. Although the loss of Miyazaki stings a bit (particularly in the boss design department), I think this new team did an excellent job without him, and I'd love to see yet another Souls entry as soon as possible.

Living up to its name it is an unrelenting punishing experience. Yet just as difficult as it can be, it is equally rewarding. There is an immense sense of satisfaction even when you have made it past some of the early bosses. Dark Souls II is not for everyone but if you looking for a hellishly difficult gaming experience, look no further.

Overall Dark Souls 2 is utterly outstanding. One can make small gripes – like how the opening lacks the impact of the previous titles and how items degrade too quickly – but these are all forgivable due to the game’s overall quality. It’s easy to talk about Dark Souls 2 and sound very critical, but this is only because it fails to stand up to Dark Souls 1. However, the core of the game is so fantastic – the sense of mystery is so enthralling, the visual design is incredible and the gameplay is still astounding.
