Dark souls for the PC is great despite some issues.
If you read any forums about this game out there, you will see lots of hate at From software for the issues I addressed above. You will also see serious fans defending this game to the last. Well, I am one of those. This game is not about flash and effects, its about the game play. ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE GAME PLAY! To many times we have settled for good "story" or good graphics with boring repetitive and easy game play.
I am enjoying the challenge. You want to show your skill, this is the game.
