Dark Souls II

Auracore MediaWorks
30 April 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.
  • Cons: Non-linear progression seems to hurt enemy balancing; a number of incredibly bland boss fights; multiplayer changes mostly hurt the game.

Dark Souls II review (X360)

HonestGamers
27 March 2014
  • Excerpt: It took me a whole two and a half years to push myself beyond the deliberately unwelcoming first few levels of Dark Souls , and even now, after punching through the whole of it in a mere four days and developing a begrudging respect for the game, I'm not convinced that it's truly great.

Dark Souls II (Xbox 360) Review – Prepare for Rage Inducing Difficulty, All Over Again

Canadian Online Gamers
18 March 2014
  • Excerpt: When Dark Souls landed on my doorstep some two and half years ago, initially I wasn’t crazy about it. I distinctly recall those first few hours into Dark Souls and how it tested my every last nerve. I never played Demon Souls, so I had no clue what Dark Souls was all about.

A return to the Dark Souls roots

Good Gear Guide.au

  • Pros: Retains the same challenging yet addictive gameplay, Hub layout helps to streamline the experience
  • Cons: Very difficult and frustrating at times, Solutions and directions are not always clear

Dark Souls II

Console Monster
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I’ll pose a challenge: here’s a brick wall. Now try and breach it using only your worthless little skull. On the other side of the wall you will find a pound coin and a fleeting moment of jubilation, followed by another brick wall. Rinse and repeat.
  • Pros: Incredibly tense and atmopsheric, Invitingly mysterious, Good value; plenty of game time on offer.
  • Cons: Graphically disappointing, Controls are unwieldy and your hero unresponsive, Lacks clarity, demanding a lot from the player

Dark Souls II

Xboxlife
16 September 2015
  • Excerpt: Dark Souls II ligger hårdt ud, med en klassisk rollespils-åbning – hvilket ikke skal tages som en dårlig ting. Åbningen er grafisk fantastisk, og med smeltende ansigter, en blodrød måne og fortællingen om kongeriget Drangleic er stemningen sat.
  • Pros: Utroligt udfordrende og belønnende, fantastisk design
  • Cons: Utilfredsstillende grafik, begrænset og overflødig multiplayer

Dark Souls II : Scholar of the First Sin

gamekyo.com
14 April 2015
  • Conclusion: Il est toujours appréciable de voir un éditeur sortir un Remastered qui va un peu plus loin que le simple portage Full HD. Dark Souls II méritait cette attention et sans être parfaite à cause d'une difficulté qui demandera encore plus d'investissements pour ceux qui débutent, cette version reste...

Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin

XBoxUser.de
4 February 2015
  • Conclusion: Letztlich will Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin nur ein Spiel sein. Keine allzu komplexe Story, keine groß inszenierten Zwischensequenzen, keine Grafiken, die als Blender dienen. Im Titel steht das Gameplay klar im Vordergrund, und das merkt man dem Spiel auch von Beginn an.
  • Pros: Sehr komplexes und ausgereiftes Gameplay..., Spannende Kämpfe, bei denen jeder Sieg ein Erfolgserlebnis auslöst, Vernetzte Welten, die interessante Interaktionsmöglichkeiten bieten, Freie und weitläufige Spielwelt
  • Cons: ... in welches man sich einarbeiten muss und was Anfänger überfordern könnte, Veraltete Optik
