    Great game. Better than the first.

    Rated on March 12, 2014 by SamuraiSeven

    The world is beautiful. The enemies are challenging. That sense of forevoding is present with every step. I am really enjoying this game. There are only two problems that I see. 1) the framerate ...

    Didnt live up to my expectations :(

    I absolutely loved DS1, but DS2 killed it for me, the loss of maximum health when undead is what did it for me, this mechanic takes the whole " you died you better go back and try again" out of the ga...

    The third game of the venerable Souls series has come to claim its fair share of death, suffering, triumph and joy.

    Rated on March 27, 2014 by Palaxius01

    How do you make a follow up to one of the most challenging yet rewarding of games that come every once in a while? Do you try to make changes or do you keep things as it is? Dark Souls 2 manages to s...

    Best game ever.

    Rated on March 28, 2014 by pygmy67

    There is a balance between light and shade in this world, and videogames were being invaded by idiotic games with no plot, no charm, no class, no fury. Then came Demon Souls, to reflame the torch that...

    Challenging and beautiful. Death is not a gimmick!

    Rated on March 29, 2014 by Syndicalist

    First, it is important to establish the fact that this game is not all about 'dying over and over' as these daft reviewers seem to keep emphasising. This is NOT the case. Yes you WILL die, but not con...

    Dark Souls ll and all the SOULS games are the best action/rpgs I've ever played..

    Rated on March 30, 2014 by SilentAssassin

    Dark Souls ll is one of the best games I've ever played in my entire life. I love the fact that you start off as a weak, pathetic character who has basically nothing and is thrown in a world you know...

    Dark Souls 2

    Rated on March 31, 2014 by baldy40

    I think that by this point, the game has been out long enough for some comparisons with earlier titles in the series to be made. Given that it's been out for about 2 weeks, I think we can begin to as...

    Dark Souls II Review

    Rated on April 13, 2014 by LoG-Sacrament

    The Souls games have always centered around mystery. You might get a little background information at the beginning of your quest, but this proves to be miniscule in the grand scale of the lore. You m...
