Excerpt: The moment thousands of gamers have been waiting for has come, and a day early.

If you were able to withhold on buying Dark Souls 2 until now, I commend you for your patience. I can tell you that the PC version was worth waiting for.
Summary: In many ways Dark Souls 2 is the technical and functional superior of the first game, but it does lack some of the semi-intangible magic of the original like its superlative interconnected world. Nonetheless, an impressive and essential sequel.

This Time It Works! – Darks Souls 2 PC review & video
24 April 2014
Summary: Dark Souls 2 for the PC is a far cleaner port attempt than the first Dark Souls port. The death of Games for Windows Live continues to mean good things for PC gaming, the potential to tweak up the graphics for the technically capable is still on offer, and the whole experience is far more gamer-friendly right from the get-go.
Pros: Mouse/keyboard support is solid this time, Smooth online integration via Steam, Enhanced graphics potential for tweakers
Cons: Menu interface with keyboard/mouse lacks polish
Summary: Не стоит сильно бояться Dark Souls 2 . Да, невнимательный игрок может умирать раз за разом и проклинать разработчика, но более внимательный человек, который понял механику игры – будет проходить даже самые сложные места без особых трудностей. В этом и заключается прелесть Dark Souls 2 – она сбалансирована просто прекрасно.
Conclusion: Online likt resten av spelet är en farlig strömvirvel som kommer att svälja din tid och uppmärksamhet. Dark Souls 2 är inte som sin föregångare utan sitt eget spel med sina egna dödsfall, barnsliga fällor, läskig musik och tuffa bossar och det är ett spel att spela. Slaget mot revbenen är kanske inte är fullt lika hårt som tidigare, men du kommer fortfarande vilja kliva upp och fortsätta utforska denna mörka, ondsinta värld om och om igen.
