Dark Souls II
This game is hard. VERY hard! But, if you can stand strong and push through it's worth it! Great graphics, rock solid gameplay. Do yourself a favor and pick it up today!
No doubt about it, this game is so fun. Way better than the first! Those who complain about the HP penalty obviously did not play Demon Souls. Overall I enjoyed this game over the first Dark Souls is because they improved many features. You can join a covenant right in the beginning, you can fast travel from bonfires, more detailed character customization. It is a great game for any RPG fan and someone wanting a great challenge! 10/10!
Praise the sun!
This game is amazing and even better than its predecessor. My first time through I chose not to use a guide, which I recommend, and the experience was just how you would imagine it would be difficult but yet rewarding. This game is definitely in my top 5 of best games of all time.
A Good challenge if you're bored
Not your typical, walk up and swing dead a bad guy. skill full playing and treasure rewards. Your reward is dying. This game is a fun challenge, with different character fighting styles.
The difficulty matches the last one and better and the customize-ability is perfect over all this is a perfect game.
Game Of The Year
First of all this goes to the bad reviews you have been seeing.. It's a simple fact that they have no clue what they are talking about they just cant handle the game. Now my review, This game is amazing already on my 3rd Playthrough and I still feel that there is alot to discover and achieve. The bosses are devastating and brutal this game is not for the weak minded If you are a true rpg gamer this is absoulutely for you .. Truly a masterpiece .
Not quite the same as the previous two installments, yet at the same time draws from both Demon's Souls and Dark Souls to put together a more fleshed out Souls game that will feel like home for any previous player. Torches are fun, mostly pointless after removing aspects to work properly, but fun, and has certain uses that make some areas vastly easier. Controls seem a little looser, but with new features that make up for it, such as true dual wielding abilities, and new back stabbing animations that are actually a lot of fun. Bosses are much more numerous this time around and enemies can be just as devastating if you're not careful. The world is prettier too, with its lush forests and beautiful ocean views that make it almost peaceful when you're not being torn apart by any number of vengeful spirits hunting for your ever so important souls. If you can see it, you can go there, a nice feeling in an open world game, but sometimes also nightmare inducing when you look across the water or an impassable wall only to see what you're sure is going to be your downfall. Plus new comers will have a much easier time getting into it and veterans will enjoy the drastic jump in difficulty if you choose a wrong path or use certain items to actually increase difficulty on the fly. Thought not with out its faults, its still got plenty of soul.
Good game, but overhyped
Dark souls 1 was an amazing game and after beating it I was drawn back to beat it again and again.
This time around its different. Its a good game but there isn't much to pull you back once you beat. On top of that the difficulty is not as hard as dark souls 1 and can be easily beaten fairly quick. It seems rather than try to add true difficulty as they did in the first dark souls they tried taking shortcuts this time and give many cheap moments in the game that you will either succeed or die in due to luck and luck alone. As for the online gameplay its running better than it did in dark souls 1 however the hacking issue has already made its comeback and nothing has changed about that from the first dark souls. I would only recommend this game to a hardcore gamer and someone who has lots of time to play it and if your a hardcore darksouls fan then you will still find enjoyment in this game. Other than that it is nothing too special.... sadly.
This game is one of the hardest game you will ever play.The game punishes you for every little mistake that you make, but there is this feeling of accomplishment that you just cant get any where else. 9.5/10
I had demon souls dark souls but now dark souls 2 comes out and sweeps the floor. This game is spectacular and a action pack hit I would buy all the dlc and recommend this to everyone well mostly people who are a true dark souls fan!
