  • Excerpt: After a robust main game and two great DLC chapters, Crown of the Ivory King, the third and final part of the trilogy, seems to go out of its way to catch you off guard. While it absolutely relies on a core foundation, its best moments are arrestingly creative.

  • Summary: FROM continues to surprise and amaze with the direction it is taking with the DLC. The Crown of the Iron King is a must have purchase for any fan. With beautiful graphics and haunting sound, you would be daft to not take the trek up Brume.

  • Excerpt: The first piece of Dark Souls II DLC delivered a lot of what we love about the series. It featured complex environments, unpredictable enemies, and vicious boss fights. Compared to Crown of the Old Iron King, however, part one just feels like a warm up.

  • Summary: The worlds of the Souls games have consistently excelled in conveying a sense of history. There's the impression that their castles and other fortifications have changed ownership by various invaders many times over.
  • Pros: Feels like a natural extension of the main game, Rich in implied history, Environments are inspired by reality but still seem otherworldly, Abundant in challenging and enjoyable combat
  • Cons: Like the last DLC, more uninspiring bosses

IGN

  • Pros: Great combat, Plenty of surprises, Wonderful challenge
  • Cons: Awful scenery, Frustrating boss
