I just wanted to know what people thought of Dark Souls II- with Miyazaki not directing it, and with it following the immense following that the first game built up, I wasn't sure how it would be received. A lot of players seem to be disappointed with Dark Souls II, saying it's not as good as the original. On the other hand, there are others who think it's every bit as good, if not better.
Which is it, really? Is Dark Souls II as great as the first game was?
