Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition Review

GamerNode
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. Having solidified the game's excellence a year ago, however, expanding its content can only serve to enhance players' experiences with...
  • Pros: Incredible depth of play, Fierce challenge that isn't cheap, Learning the game world, then building a character, equipment loads, and skills around that knowledge
  • Cons: Technical hiccups like throttled resolution and frame rate, Poor PC controls essentially require purchase of a USB controller

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.

  • Summary: First, allow me to begin with a caveat; I have not completed Dark Souls . I have invested over 90 hours of play into the game, exploring the vast majority of its world and facing off against (if not defeating) many of the boss enemies.

Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Ivory King review

Eurogamer
2 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Enjoy the next few weeks, during which there will be a steady population touring through the chapter, seamlessly and thinly appearing in one another's games like ghosts in a dream. Soon, the people will have moved on: Eleum Loyce will return to ice and all but the small group of NPCs you gathered at...

Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Old Iron King review

Eurogamer
27 August 2014
  • Conclusion: A brisk and challenging chapter, Crown of the Old Iron King's strength is in its unique setting and the difference in tone and ambiance this brings. Compared to its predecessor, it's somewhat brief, but it's arguably more memorable in terms of both its foes and vistas.

Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Sunken King review

Eurogamer
25 July 2014
  • Conclusion: It's a strong start for this series of add-on chapters for Dark Souls 2, then. There are no standout battles - save, perhaps, for the grim final encounter - but the cumulative effect of its fights, puzzles and secrets is memorable: Sanctum City and its offshoot areas lodge in the mind like so many...
