Excerpt: I've spent a lot of time playing video games in my lifetime, but nothing quite like this game. Dark Souls is an RPG action game that will certainly capture your imagination with its amazing graphics. This game definitely doesn't lack action. Around every corner there is something new to be discovered and plenty of enemy's souls to be stolen. This sequel to Demon Souls is certainly a very interesting game.
Excerpt: Looked at on its own, Dark Souls is still one of the best games released this year and offers an experience that’s unlikely to be matched by any other game for a long time. But as the sequel to one of the best games of this generation, it’s hard not to wonder how From Software could gloss over a lot of the things they got right the first time.
Pros: Incredibly detailed and interconnected world, addicting gameplay, beautiful vistas and sounds
Cons: Tons of design oversights, poor second half, buggy and broken online play
