Can't really tell from a compressed video, but it looks OK but it is a bit dark.

Good to hear that you can now use items to replenish your spells. That annoyed me about DS1

Definitely looks better than the first. I can't wait to see it with graphics mods.

Technically, it looks like a nice improvement again, and there's the beautiful art work as usual.

I have to admit, it looks pretty good for a PS2 game

It is coming out for PS3, XBOX 360, and PC.

No way on earth a PS2 could handle those graphics.

Will be even better on PC

I dont get the point in your dark souls threads..... most people here like it, its not even system wars material.

worst kind of trolling. nobody thinks dark souls 2 is a graphics powerhouse.....

I didn't like Dark Souls at all, to be honest.

Thunder dude, give it a fucking rest

No, it isn't. Dark Souls is excellent for reasons other than graphics.

Did you play Dark Souls on PC? Because this is what it looks like.

#22 Posted by princeofshapeir (13723 posts) -

It looks only slightly better than the original Dark Souls.

Yes, I play it on PC at 1080p with DSFix and it looks good, but Dark Souls 2 has considerably better graphics.

This is how it goes when it comes to graphics of the Souls series:

  • Demons Souls vs. Dark Souls = Dark Souls graphics are a tiny bit better.
  • Dark Souls vs. Dark Souls 2 = Dark Souls 2 graphics are considerably better.


That being said, Demons Souls and Dark Souls both still have good graphics.

This. Evidently some people don't have a problem with repetitive gameplay of "pointlessly run forward and swing your sword again and again and again", as long as beating it makes them feel they're part of an elite group of hardcore gamers elevated above the filthy casuals.

If DS2 has considerably better graphics, then Dark Souls must look like a pile of shit

There's a new rule that you need to have at least 500 posts to create threads in System Wars. See the new survival guide for more info.
