  • Summary: Take a look at the live streams, Let's Plays, and other online phenomena still surrounding Dark Souls -- released two-and-a-half years ago -- and it's easy to see that, despite its length and nearly inestimable depth, From Software's Demon's Souls sequel left fans wanting more.

Dark Souls II: Crown of the Ivory King

Game Revolution
8 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Avoid the icy grip of death. A lot of early Dark Souls II discussions centered on comparisons to the previous two entries in the series (including Demon's Souls ), but FromSoftware managed to regain some control of the post-release narrative with its DLC trilogy.

Auracore MediaWorks
2 May 2014
  • Summary: Once more into the dark my friends!
  • Pros: A few great boss fights; engaging level design; wide variety of enemies; really interesting lore to be found.

Dark Souls II Review

GameBanshee
1 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Given Dark Souls II dropped both the original's light/dark dichotomy and its interconnected world structure, it allowed itself to be far more varied in locations, and now ranges from Gothic castles sinking into the lava, to underground pirates' dens, to thick, overgrown forts.
