Summary: While the visuals were okay (though not greatly better than the originals), the gameplay was mediocre at best. The adventure comes in a linear point-and-click "game", that feels more like autoplay.
Summary: Personally I'm glad we didn't pay for it ourselves (it was a gift). We were excited to receive DS3 until we played it. The graphics and game play felt too much like Oblivion. And while we really enjoyed Oblivion, after playing DS1 and DS2 we expected a lot more from the game namely a DS environment...
Summary: Everything about the games visuals and gameplay are fairly good. But, the one thing that really irritated me is the limited amount of character customizations. RPGs in essence are really all about creating your own hero.
Summary: I will say up front that I just couldn't bring myself to play this one very much. It was basically not that fun, interesting or compelling. It didn't even strike me as connected to the original in any meaningful way.
Summary: Frustrating camera angles. Frustrating weapon targeting. Frustrating companion AI. Pathetically easy normal mode vs incredibly frustrating hardcore mode. All boss battles involve the same pattern of dodge, dodge, shoot, repeat and all boss battles have the same gimmick of constant trash mob spawns.
