Look at this gameplay video. Dark Souls 2 has superb gameplay and graphics. Forget about resolution, just look at the GRAPHICS of this game!! I would say the graphics even beat Uncharted 3 graphics!! The lighting, shadows, and textures are all awesome. The characters have substance to them. The game probably has very high polygon counts for a PS3/XBOX 360 game. Judging by this gameplay video, the game runs very smoothly as well. And of course, the gameplay is unmatched by any other Action RPG ever released.
