    Drangleic - a land of shattered hopes.

    Dark Souls 2 has an ongoing theme of shattered hopes. Be it a hope for curing the curse, hope for bringing the world to its former glory or simply a hope for living through another day. In my case, after playing for abou... Read Full Review

    Humanity has been restored!

    When dark souls 2 was first released it was a few months after the release of next gen consoles. I held my breath and... What, no xbox one version? I was soooo tempted to buy the xbox360 version but instead opted for oth... Read Full Review

    A truly amazing experience

    I've never played a game as challenging as dark souls. I've also never had as much with a game. As a fan of the first game, i had high expectations for the 2nd game. I was disappointed. With its spectacular story, amazin... Read Full Review

    *sigh* Why did I let myself get dragged into this franchise?!

    Dark Souls 2 is a terrible game in my opinion. Demon's Souls is a average to mediocre RPG and as for Dark Souls 1, I like it, but to an extent. Dark Souls 2, on the other hand, is complete garbage! My brother and a frie... Read Full Review

    Victory Achieved / Duty Fulfilled / Invader Defeated

    Awesome game. The core combat feels very realistic. The different weapon styles and variety of enemies keeps the game replayable. There are some great improvements over the original Dark Souls. You can now swap up to 3 w... Read Full Review

    Cheaply made, terrible PC port from console

    This is an absolutely terrible console port. This is a shame, as I'd recently become interested in playing this after seeing it on my nephew's PS3, and finding out it was also available on PC. Sadly the developers obviou... Read Full Review

    It just keeps gettin better!

    Well... if you thought it couldn't get harder, yet somehow more rewarding, you'd be wrong... This game is so unbelievably challenging, but once again you will find yourself glued to the screen pushing on... Success is d... Read Full Review

    God Save the Queen

    Confessions first: I am what most DkS players would call a "casul". This was my first Souls game, which taught me its ways in a wonderful, albeit rage-filled, experience. The game is challenging, but preparation and caut... Read Full Review

    You Died, again

    I'm not understanding the "love" for this series. Graphics and play control are sub-par. This game could be done on a cell-phone graphics chip, no problem. That's not a bad thing so much, i was just expecting something a... Read Full Review

    Dark World to Explore

    Dark Souls II doesn't disappoint when it comes to creating a rich dark world to explore and get lost in.It gets very hard very fast and you must persist if you want to advance. Frustration took the better of me and aft... Read Full Review
