  • Conclusion: In short, OH MY GOD THIS GAME IS AMAZING. I’m a huge Souls fanboy and the bias is thick and heavy in the air, but this is honestly the most fun I’ve had with a video game since the original Dark Souls.

  • Cons: Framerate suffers during hectic scenes, Loading times can occasionally cause delayed button inputs and sound effects

31 October 2012
  • Summary: From Software's effort on the petition-inspired PC version of Dark Souls, aside from the new Prepare to Die Edition content, was less than what fans had hoped for.

Dark Souls

Playstation Illustrated
11 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Few games leave me as torn as Dark Souls . The game is incredibly hard - almost to the point where it is soul crushing. At the same time, there's a fun sense of achievement weaving throughout the entire game. Every death is a painful chance to learn something new about the game's mechanics.
